In this post, we provide an updated edition of Perkins Coie’s International Virtual Currency Tracker.


Originally posted in 2014, we regularly update the tracker and post an updated version periodically. The chart should be fairly self-explanatory. Countries that have meaningfully weighed in on the topic are listed in alphabetical order along the left-hand side, followed to the right by a high-level summary of the country’s current stance on virtual currencies, and then by more specific details, by date, of the actions taken by government officials and entities in that country.

Hopefully, this tracker will simplify the task of keeping up with the ever-changing international landscape and give you a quick snapshot of the status of virtual currency regulation in any individual country and around the world.
