United States of America

The United States of America does not officially consider cryptocurrencies as legal tender. However, it does not consider them illegal either. Unlike China, it has not made cryptocurrency exchanges nor mining illegal.

Regulation is done both in the federal and state level.

In the Federal government, regulation is done by the Securities and Exchange Comission (SEC) the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) and the Commodities and Futures Trading Commission (CFTC).

In the state level, several governments have taken legislative action, either doing so by issuing restrictive regulation (NY) or favorable regulation that aims to promote the technology (WY,AZ,CO)
