Arsianews, Jakarta – Telah dilaporkan oleh Bitcoins Channel bahwa pertukaran Peer-to-Peer (P2P) LocalBitcoins telah melihat lonjakan volume yang mengesankan dari pasar Indonesia, iran Venezuela dan Kolombia. Daerah-daerah ini menghadapi berbagai bentuk kesulitan ekonomi, sehingga penerapan platform perdagangan yang didesentralisasi mungkin tidak mengejutkan.

Untuk Indonesia, pertumbuhannya jauh lebih nyata. Dalam dua minggu terakhir pasar Indonesia telah tumbuh 2000%, dengan rekor 262 BTC diperdagangkan selama minggu 16 Februari. Sementara Iran melihat kenaikan 150% dalam minggu lalu, dengan 67 BTC diperdagangkan, menjadikannya minggu ke-9 terkuat yang pernah dilihat negara dalam perdagangan P2P.

Lalu ada Venezuela dan Kolombia, yang keduanya telah menunjukkan pertumbuhan yang sangat kuat baru-baru ini juga. Perdagangan minggu lalu melihat volume masing-masing 1.960 BTC dan 707 BTC. Terakhir kita memiliki Republik Dominika, yang mengalami minggu terkuat kedua dengan 34 BTC dipindahkan.

Menginspirasi cryptocurrency untuk diadopsi sebagai cara alternatif untuk mentransfer uang, terutama di tempat-tempat yang paling membutuhkannya. Penting untuk diingat bahwa orang yang menggunakan case untuk crypto pada akhirnya akan mendorong adopsi.

Indonesia has joined the ranks of a handful of countries that have established a legal framework for operating crypto and digital assets futures markets. The Indonesian Commodity Futures Trading Supervisory Agency (Bappebti), which operates under Indonesia’s Ministry of Trade, has officially required multiple entities involved in crypto futures trading to seek regulatory approval and apply for registration before legally operating in Indonesia.

This policy follows the recent release of legislation that officially recognizes Bitcoin (BTC) and other digital assets as trading commodities. The Bappebti first greenlighted crypto trading as a commodity on Indonesian stock exchanges back in June 2018.

The new regulatory framework is based on a number of major rules for futures market operations, including regulation on the adoption of crypto as a tradable commodity on futures exchange markets, as well as technical provisions for placing crypto futures contracts on exchanges.

The new rules require both futures exchanges and clearing houses that offer crypto futures trading to pay at least 1.5 trillion Indonesian rupiahs (IDR) or $106 million, as well as maintain a closing capital balance of at least 1.2 trillion IDR ($85 million), according to international law-focused media agency Lexology.

The rules also affect crypto futures traders and storage service providers, requiring both to maintain at least 1 trillion IDR ($71 million) and a minimum closing balance of 800 billion IDR ($57 million) before they can become officially approved to trade crypto futures.

The regulation demands crypto futures exchanges to ensure compliance with security policies, requiring at least three staff members to be acquire Certified Information System Security Professionals (CISSP) certification. The entities should undergo risk management procedures, including compliance with Anti-Money Laundering (AML) and combating terrorism financing policies.

The new regulation was established in order to provide legal certainty around the crypto futures trading field, as well as to protect investors, as Head of Bappepti Indrasari Wisnu Wardhana stated, stressing that commodities futures trading intends to provide the ecosystem with support in the development of digital innovative business models.

While the latest document confirms crypto as being an officially accepted tradable commodity on the futures market, Bitcoin still remains banned from being used as payment in Indonesia, following a ban imposed in 2017 by Indonesia’s central bank. According to Lexology, the regulation stressed that the new regulatory scheme cannot be applied to initial coin offerings (ICOs).
