It is worth mentioning that the listed tokens included those recognized as securities by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).
Following the news, an Indonesian YouTuber expressed pride in his country’s crypto-friendly status, emphasizing that Indonesia currently views crypto as commodities. However, he acknowledged that cryptos are not yet permitted as a means of payment within the nation.
The YouTuber hinted at the possibility of Indonesia allowing cryptocurrencies for payments. He noted that while the country currently does not permit Bitcoin as a means of payment, efforts are underway to make it legally acceptable in that regard.
Friendly in the sense of being a commodity asset.Indeed, currently Indonesia does not allow #bitcoin as a means of payment, maybe that's what doesn't make it friendly as a person.We are in the process of making #bitcoin the legal payment. I believe it can.

Notably, Indonesia has been a welcoming country for crypto adoption. In January this year, it launched a crypto exchange following a shift of the regulatory powers. Later in February, it proposed a National Digital Asset Exchange.
The Indonesian government’s decision to expand the list of tradable tokens further reflects a progressive approach toward digital assets. As the country explores the regulatory landscape of crypto-related concerns, the future looks promising for Indonesia’s crypto enthusiasts.
