In the circular, CMA confirmed its commitment to an absolute ban on major use cases and operations involving cryptocurrencies.

Including payments, investments, as well as mining. The circular also prohibits local regulators from issuing any licenses that would allow companies to provide virtual asset services as a commercial business.

Meanwhile, securities and other financial instruments regulated by the Central Bank of Kuwait and the CMA are exempt from the latest ban, the announcement notes.

In addition to prohibitions, CMS also requires customers to be careful and aware of the risks associated with virtual asset transactions.

Kuwait’s new regulations are in line with the country’s measures to combat money laundering and terrorist financing, the regulator noted.

The CMA also refers to the conclusions of the study by the National Committee for the Eradication of Money Laundering and the Financing of Terrorism regarding the commitment to implement the Recommendations by the Financial Action Task Force.

CMA’s crypto ban is part of a new inter-departmental crypto ban in Kuwait, which involves several supervisory authorities.
