Last year Indonesia’s financial watchdog Bappebti acknowledged crypto assets as a trading commodity issuing regulation framework No.5/2019.
Thus, according to the head of Bappebti, Indrasari Wisnu Wardhana, Indonesia wants to give protection to people "who want to invest in crypto assets so that they aren’t cheated by fraudulent sellers."
In 2018, Bank Indonesia (BI) announced plans to issue launch a digital currency of its own using the blockchain technology.
BI’s assistant deputy director for bank payment systems, Susiati Dewi, said that the central bank was looking to adopt blockchain technology for a potential digital rupiah.
