Tourists who use cryptocurrencies to pay for goods and services will be punished up to deportation, said Vayan Koster, Governor of Bali.
How writes Portal Antara May 29, Koster stated that “foreign tourists who behave inappropriately, violate visa restrictions and other regulations, use cryptocurrency as a means of payment, will be severely punished.”

In addition to deportation, severe punishment can mean an administrative fine or even criminal prosecution. Up to a term of up to five years.
