Bahrain is growing into a Crypto Pro

On September 13, the CBB announced it is on the right track to becoming one of the most prominent entities in terms of cryptocurrency adoption.

In recent years, the CBB has undergone multiple improvements and has proven to be very friendly to cryptocurrencies.

Although it is the first step for the CBB to adopt cryptocurrencies it is one of the last steps to be taken by Bahrain to integrate Bitcoin into their technology-related economy.

The kingdom has fast-tracked its efforts of adopting BTC and altcoins not only on an individual but at the GCC level.
