History of Bitcoin in Saudi Arabia

Saudi Arabia Flag

The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia's (المملكة العربية السعودية) stance on Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies, stated through its monetary authority, the Saudi Arabian Monetary Authority (SAMA), is that cryptocurrencies are not supported within the Kingdom, and dealing with it is risky.

In October of 2017, Saudi billionaire investor Prince Alwaleed bin Talal, a member of the extended Saudi Arabian royal family, stated that he agreed with JPMorgan CEO Jamie Dimon, who famously called bitcoin a “fraud” that is “worth nothing”. Expressing further skepticism, Prince Alwaleed argued that the lack of regulation governing Bitcoin will lead it to inevitably implode.
