Legality of bitcoin by country or territory

For a broader coverage related to this topic, see Bitcoin.

The legal status of bitcoin varies substantially from country to country and is still undefined or changing in many of them.[1] Whereas the majority of countries do not make the usage of bitcoin itself illegal, its status as money (or a commodity) varies, with differing regulatory implications. While some countries have explicitly allowed its use and trade, others have banned or restricted it. Likewise, various government agencies, departments, and courts have classified bitcoins differently. While this article provides the legal status of bitcoin, regulations and bans that apply to this cryptocurrency likely extend to similar systems as well.

Legal status of bitcoin
  permissive (it’s legal to use bitcoin)
  contentious (some restrictions on legal usage of bitcoin)
  contentious (interpretation of old laws, but bitcoin isn’t prohibited directly)
  hostile (full or partial prohibition)
