The report stated that cryptocurrency is a virtual business that could be used to finance acts of terrorism and to launder money.

During the hearing, the Sindh High Court has ordered the report be sent to the finance and law ministries for a final decision on the legal status of the cryptocurrencies.

The next hearing of the case will be held on April 12.

On the other hand, petitioner Waqar Zaka, a crypto influencer,  has pleaded with the court that cryptocurrencies be declared legal as a large number of Pakistanis were interested in them.
