These [bitcoin] are not currencies but rather a commodity whose prices rise and fall without any justification. For this reason, BDL has banned the use of this currency in the Lebanese market.
Somewhere else, he rejected the digital money as “unregulated,” while supposedly alluding to the innovation as a risk to current installment frameworks.
