"In the future, the Indonesian House of Representatives Commission XI wants crypto assets to be under the supervision of the OJK," said Luthfy at the Virtual Integrated Capital Market Socialization and Education in 2022, Friday (26/8/2022).
Luthfy said, crypto is divided into two categories, namely as a means of payment (cryptocurrency) or an investment tool.
"In terms of crypto, there are two types of crypto categorization, crypto as a means of payment or cryptocurrency or crypto as an investment tool," he said.
However, according to Bank Indonesia (BI), crypto is not a part of payment instruments.
"The payment instrument has a statement from Bank Indonesia, it is not part of the payment instrument," he said.
Then, he also said, this crypto is almost similar to stocks and bonds. This is because cryptocurrencies can be transacted, bought and sold, and even changed hands.
“Secondly, for cryptocurrencies that are for investment, these securities tokens sometimes have characters like stocks and bonds. He can be transacted, buying and selling, changing hands," he said.
In addition, Luthfy also emphasized that this cryptocurrency is one of the legal investment tools from the Ministry of Trade and its regulation is in CoFTRA.
“The regulation is not in OJK but in CoFTRA. Legal in the Ministry of Commerce. This is just a slight problem, what CoFTRA does is limited to trade monitoring. But the publication has not been monitored, the good or bad goods that are published are not yet known," he concluded.
