Cuba is all set to recognize and regulate cryptocurrencies

Cryptocurrencies in CUba

On August 26, 2021, Cuba’s government announced that it would acknowledge and regulate cryptocurrencies in Cuba for payment in the Island nation.
This decision was made after the popularity of cryptocurrencies grew among a technologically savvy group in Cuba as dollars became more difficult. According to officials, the Central Bank will establish rules for such currencies. It will also determine how providers of related services in Cuba will be licensed.
Cryptocurrencies are supposedly anonymous and are used for long-distance transactions. As a result, they are frequently popular among those attempting to avoid government regulations.

Another country is beginning to recognize cryptocurrencies. El Salvador, a Central American country, recently announced its acceptance of the cryptocurrency Bitcoin as a means of encouraging remittances from its citizens living abroad. El Salvador announced the adoption of Bitcoin as a legal tender on June 9, 2021. It was the first country in the world to take this step.

Concerning cryptocurrencies

Cryptocurrencies are binary data that serve as a medium of exchange. Individual coin ownership records are stored in a ledger in the form of a computerized database during such an exchange. Strong cryptography is used to store the database to secure transaction records, control the creation of additional coins, and verify the transfer of coin ownership.
It does not exist in physical form, as paper money does, and any central authority does not issue it. Before the issuance of cryptocurrency, a single issuer mints or creates it. As a result, it is widely regarded as centralized.
Bottom line
With cryptocurrencies becoming increasingly popular in emerging markets, a recent report by blockchain data platform Chainalysis ranked India second in terms of global crypto adoption in 2021, despite international crypto adoption increasing by more than 880 percent in the previous year.
Chainalysis ranked India second in the report titled ‘The 2021 Global Crypto Adoption Index,’ just behind Vietnam, which took first place out of 154 countries surveyed.
