INDUSTRY.co.id - Jakarta - Task Force Investments also urged the public to be wary of Bitcoin offering or virtual currency that is currently rampant. Virtual currency is not a financial investment instrument that has regulation.

"Trading virtual currency is more speculative because it has a very high risk. Some entities offering virtual currency are not acting as marketplaces but delivering a promise of high yields when buying virtual currency," said Task Force Investigator Tongam L. Tobing / Director of Policy and Investigation Support in Jakarta, Thursday (14/12/2017).

According to him, Bank Indonesia has also stated that virtual currency cannot be used as a medium of exchange. The Investment Alert Task Force also stated that the Investment Coordinating Board (BKPM) stated that there are three entities that have obtained business license in the form of temporary SIUPL: PT Trima Sarana Pratama (C-PRO), PT Unionfam Azaria Berjaya / Azaria Amazing Store, and PT Talk Fusion Indonesia.
