Bolivia

The use of virtual currencies is prohibited in Bolivia.[19] The Central Bank has stated that the use of currency not issued by the monetary authority is not allowed in the country.[20] Cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin are not regulated and therefore, the Central Bank warns about the possible losses that people using them are exposed to.[21]
