Bitcoin in Myanmar no more after the Central Bank of Myanmar announced that it doesn’t recognize bitcoin as money. Following the coming altcoin news, CBM considers the number one cryptocurrency as a liability rather than an opportunity.
Myanmar is a developing country that is now considering shutting its doors down for bitcoin merely because it poses a threat to the central bank. Bitcoin proposes to replace banks with an improved decentralized network of transaction validators. This means that everyone with an internet connection can join the bitcoin economy and participate in global economies.
But, the Central Bank of Myanmar stated previously that it would not allow Myanmarese Financial Institutions to accept or to facilitate transactions conducted with Bitcoin. The same rule applies to all other cryptocurrencies with similar properties.
According to reports, Myanmarese investors are increasing their stakes in bitcoin despite the bad news. Local ads for bitcoin exchanges are still increasing and this shows that more people are looking to hop on the bitcoin bandwagon. CBM fears that this process can flush out a large part of the capital from Myanmar’s market to the industry in other countries which is the main reason why the bank is discouraging people from investing and therefore to make no more bitcoin available in the country.
An IT professional Aung Aung who works at the Yangon Company pointed out for the latest cryptocurrency news that the people in the country face a lot of restrictions on banking. He admitted that he purchased about $20 worth of BTC in 2017 since he found that the cryptocurrency is perfect for conducting flawless ‘’global e-commerce and aid.’’
There are thousands of people in Myanmar who got into bitcoin for the same reasons Aung did. The bitcoin frenzy began in 2017 when the market valuation jumped up to $313.89 billion which five times more than the current GDP of Myanmar. The downside correction in 2018 brought the rates of Bitcoin to go down by 85 percent. The market now stands close to the $144 billion and there is a huge interest from institutional players.
CBM now has two options: restrict people from investing in bitcoin or make Myanmar the perfect crypto-hub such as Japan or Switzerland. The chief executive of the digital commerce platform Get Myanmar pointed out:
“Before making crypto illegal, its impact on the local currency and compatibility with existing policies should first be analyzed and discussed.’’

Binance Removes US Resident Ban: Launching In “A Month Or Two”
“3. Prohibition of use By accessing and using the Services, you represent and warrant that you are not on any trade or economic sanctions lists, such as the UN Security Council Sanctions list, designated as a “Specially Designated National” by OFAC (Office of Foreign Assets Control of the U.S. Treasury Department) or placed on the U.S. Commerce Department’s “Denied Persons List”. Binance maintains the right to select its markets and jurisdictions to operate and may restrict or deny the Services in certain countries at its discretion.”When comparing the wording to the one uploaded in June, it is clear that Binance removes US resident ban. The previous text read that "Binance is unable to provide services to any U.S. person," - which is why the difference is obvious.
