Traditional Regulation of Currency

- Pp. 13-15 (3)

Jeffrey H. Matsuura


National governments apply well-established rules addressing the creation and use of fiat currency used in their countries. Fiat currency is often also described as a nation’s legal tender.

For this reason, traditional laws governing currency have not been directly applicable to Bitcoin and other virtual currencies.
