“The central bank has ordered us to ban all money changers, individuals and business people from using counterfeit digital currencies like bitcoin,” said Syed Shah Saadat, head of criminal investigation at the Herat Provincial Police Department, as quoted by TASS.

The ban was introduced this month, and the Taliban have already arrested 13 people. However, most of them were released on bail. In addition, more than 20 crypto exchanges were closed in the large city of Herat, the center of cryptocurrency trading.

Bloomberg writes that the crackdown began after the people of Afghanistan began using digital currencies to save their savings and prevent them from falling into the hands of the Taliban.
