The legality of bitcoin depends on who you are, and what you’re doing with it.

There are three main categories of bitcoin stakeholder. Someone may fall under more than one of these categories, and each category has its own legal considerations.
If in my country Bitcoin is not yet legalized, but the Government in my country still allow its citizens to have Bitcoin and only prohibit it to be used as a transaction tool. So Bitcoin is still legit in my country.
Here it is considered legal because there is no regulation stating that it is illegal, so we are free to do what we want for as long as we are not fooling people to do investment in it, or to make an investment scam because we do have law regulated for the protection of everyone especially investors.
The same as here, since our country recognized bitcoin from our Central Bank as one of a currency payment and making a transaction as a virtual money we all concluded that bitcoin is not illegal here besides many people now embracing bitcoin because of the asset of bitcoin being profitable when you invested. But fooling people was really prohibited here and have a punishment when you are being caught and have strong evidence on you and that is part of cybercrime law and money laundering.

Bitcoin and crypto currency in general is legal in some country and illegal in some other countries.  So all depends on the country you are trying to refer the issues of whether is legal to, although the numbers of country that accept crypto currency as a legal tender is insignificant.

It is  considered legal to some countries because there is tax regulated on it, but also a lot of countries are banning it due to different reasons some just like China does not want this thing because they planned to have their own which they want Chinese to invest at and not in bitcoin, some still thinks that it was just a scam.

some country yes, but mostly not. its depends on what country you live because in every country has different ways on how they accept bitcoin. number of countries dont make bitcoin as legal but they are open minded about cryptocurrency. they dont banned bitcoin as long it will not use in a crime.

Bitcoin is legal. Here in philippines, the central bank do not endorse cryptocurrencies such as bitcoin, yet they regulate cryptocurrency when used for financial services. Businesses are allowed to do virtual currency exchange provided that they will follow the guidelines set forth by the central bank of the philippines. These guidelines was enforced to manage the risk involved with cryptocurrencies.

Yes it is legal, however, some government doesnt allow crypto exchanges in their country. There are some countries who already banned cryptos because of the financial risk that it can cause to its holders and users because they believe that these cryptos can be used on illegal activities. Every country have their own regulations when it comes to crypto use and exchange.

bitcoin is legal in major countries.

In major countries bitcoin is still in the dilemma stage as their is no clear guidelines being stated if they have banned it or accepted it. They still are figuring out if should be allowing it completely or should bring under some regulation so that they can control to an extent.

Agreed with you mate just like here our country they did not put any law regarding cryptocurrencies besides they are recognized bitcoin as a kind of payments method that using blockchain technology. And they warn people just be aware that it is may lead to a possible scam.
So, not all countries are the same policy regarding bitcoin.

Well for me its really legal. Because according to the U.S. Treasury Department’s Financial Crimes Enforcement Network, as of 2013, using bitcoin to purchase well-natured goods and services is not illegal. However, those who mine bitcoins and trade them for traditional currency or operate exchanges on which bitcoins are being transmitted by money and could be a subject to special laws that govern that type of action. Bitcoin is the future fellas

for people who have jumped into bitcoin means he already think bitcoin is legal

For now only the Japanese government is legalizing bitcoin, and broadly speaking bitcoin is not really a matter of legal status or not, but every country has its own opinion about bitcoin.

To date only Japanese countries have legalized bitcoin, and in my country have not legalized yet, and I expect bitcoin to be legal in every country.
