The Indonesian government has formally granted a digital currency or cryptocurrency trading permit in Indonesia. Where in the end there are as many as 229 cryptocurrencies that have been given the green light to be traded domestically.


Regarding the issue of this permit, the Indonesian government has entrusted it through the Ministry of Trade through the Commodity Futures Trading Supervisory Agency (Bappebti) which of course is accompanied by the presence of the Bappebti Regulation. The regulation has stated what crypto assets are officially in Indonesia.

The regulation describes the issue of crypto assets as an intangible commodity in the form of digital assets based on cryptography, with a peer-to-peer network, and a distributed ledger to regulate the creation of new units, verify each transaction, and secure transactions without interference from other parties.

So that in Indonesia crypto-assets can only be traded on futures exchanges, where cryptocurrency cannot be used for transactions or as currency.

It is thus clear that cryptocurrency in Indonesia is only an investment tool that can or may be traded. And to be able to do this, crypto-asset investors can trade cryptocurrencies through crypto-asset trading companies. As for crypto asset trading companies, it means that they must have a license that has been registered with Bappebti.

For now, there are only 13 crypto-asset trading companies that have been registered and obtained permission from Bappebti, including:

  • PT Indodax Nasional Indonesia (INDODAX)
  • PT Crypto Indonesia Berkat (TOKOCRYPTO)
  • PT Zipmex Exchange Indonesia (ZIPMEX)
  • PT Indonesia Digital Exchange (IDEX)
  • PT Pintu Kemana Saja (PINTU)
  • PT Luno Indonesia LTD (LUNO)
  • PT Cipta Koin Digital (KOINKU)
  • PT Tiga Inti Utama
  • PT Upbit Exchange Indonesia
  • PT Bursa Cripto Prima
  • PT Rekeningku Dotcom Indonesia
  • PT Triniti Investama Berkat
  • PT Plutonext Digital Aset

In conclusion, crypto investors who want security and protection for the existence of law in Indonesia regarding crypto issues in Indonesia can now be obtained and can avoid fraud problems that currently often occur. For this reason, it can be considered the issue of security interests first, where the existence of the Government guarantees that it can make investors safer investing.
