Central Bank of Jordan Blocks Financial Companies from Bitcoin

“It was the Central Bank of Jordan’s (CBJ) turn to issue a digital currency warning this week, advising the public of the risks associated with the use of the financial tools, and blocking financial companies from engaging in bitcoin business.  The Bank’s executive director of its payment services department, Maha Bahu, told The Jordan Times that the Kingdom’s banks, financial companies, payment processors and currency exchangers had also received a circular ‘prohibiting them from dealing with virtual currencies, particularly in bitcoins’.  She said the CBJ had been ‘following the issue of bitcoin very closely over the past two months’.”
