Draft Law entitled “On the Prohibitioncryptocurrencies and the regulation of the official digital currencies bill of 2019 ”was submitted to parliament in April, since various government departments, industry insiders and lobby groups discussed this document. The proposed document will prohibit the "sale, purchase and release of all types of cryptocurrencies."
