Cryptocurrency in Thailand
Cryptocurrency was legalized in Thailand in May 2018, in a relatively quick and painless process compared to other jurisdictions.
Having decided that the entry of the new industry was inevitable, the authorities started telling the local banks to refrain from doing business with the cryptocurrency while things were being resolved.
The central bank had a fiscal framework drawn up by March, and a law containing a hundred sections entered into force in May. The affiliated companies were given 90 days to register with the SEC.
Soon after, the Thailand Stock Exchange opened a blockchain-based crowdfunding market called "LiVE".
The country allows the trade of Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin, Ripple, Stellar, Bitcoin Cash and Ethereum Classic.
Companies associated with the cryptocurrency operating in Thailand must be registered with the SEC. Companies that want to raise funds through an ICO must have a registered capital of five million baht.
The penalty for the management of an unregulated cryptocurrency / related activities in Thailand is a fine of at least 50,000 baht or twice the value of the transactions in question and a possible two-year prison term.
