The Bank of Thailand has asked financial institutions in the country not to deal with cryptocurrencies.
Bank officials say these currencies are not recognized as legal tender, and there is no law to regulate them.
The central bank said on Monday it had instructed banks and credit card firms not to engage in investment or trading in digital currencies.
The central bank also asked financial institutions not to allow customers to use credit cards to buy virtual currencies, and not to give advice about investment in cryptocurrencies.
