As Cryptocurrency Gains Popularity In Israel, Discussions Continue About a ‘Crypto-Shekel’

Top leadership in Israel has long considered launching a state-backed virtual currency. Discussions have only grown as the nation’s cryptocurrency sector continues to blossom.


The Bank of Israel, as well as the nation’s Finance Ministry, has been mulling over the idea of a state-sponsored cryptocurrency since Bitcoin’s [coin_price] price high at the tail end of 2017.

Finance Ministry officials spoke of a state-sponsored virtual currency that would be rolled out in order to lower the number of cash transactions in the nation, while cracking down on tax evasion and money laundering.

Black market activity in Israel is estimated to comprise about 22% of GDP.

A draft legal framework for a state-sponsored virtual currency has been in the forefront of Israeli legislation since the start of 2018. Additional news about a ‘Crypto-Shekel’ has been light this year.

On the other hand, some think the discussion about a state-backed digital currency might start heating up. This is especially so since cryptocurrency ha become more and more mainstream across many facets of Israeli culture.

Crypto Is Cool In Israel

Cryptocurrency and blockchain have become all the rage in Israel thanks to its high number of patents, as well as its cutting-edge technological industry. The nation was recently ranked as the 10th most innovative across the globe.

As a result, some think a crypto-based solution to tax evasion and money laundering might not come from a state-sponsored virtual currency, but rather from the private sector.

Some of the nation’s top institutional banks, along with the government, have dug more of a foothold in the digital currency world in recent memory. The Bank of Hapoalim has teamed up with Microsoft Azure to use blockchain for asset digitization.

In February, the nation’s Supreme Court said Bank Leumi was not allowed to close customer accounts, but only due to cryptocurrency transactions. This ruling opened up the virtual…

The Man Who Solved Bitcoin’s Most Notorious Heist

Kim Nilsson was seething. It was 2014, and the software engineer discovered someone had disabled access to his bitcoins. A crime had apparently been committed, one that the police seemed unable to comprehend, much less solve.

The coins went missing from a failed bitcoin exchange called Mt. Gox, and hundreds of investors found themselves demoralized, if not broke. More than $400 million had seemingly vanished into cyberspace.

Unlike many victims, Mr. Nilsson resolved to fight back, and he teamed up with a lawyer and another partner who also lost bitcoins to track down the culprits. What ensued was a three-year journey through the internet’s underbelly that ended last summer on a Greek beach. There, in the shadow of a 1,000-year-old monastery, FBI agents…
