South Africa is noted as a premium crypto destination which is something that traders have been taking advantage of for a number of years, however it’s critically important to remain fully compliant with all relevant legislation. Getting it wrong can have serious implications.

Exchange control regulations, administered by the South African Reserve Bank, restrict the export of capital from the country without the express permission of National Treasury {regulation 10.(1)(c)}, failing which, substantial penalties can be imposed {regulation 22}.
