Encrypted digital currencies - or cryptocurrencies - have risen in popularity as the world of international commerce moves faster than ever. Our society is increasingly digital and cryptocurrencies continue to gain support in government, business and personal financial transactions. But what are the laws and regulations that govern their use?
