Bitlicenses (named after the State of New York’s money transfer license for crypto currencies) are an emerging area. In most countries they are classified as either assets or monetary instruments, In some countries they are legal but not licensed in others they are illegal but the laws are not actively enforced. In the US, they are legal, but there are massive efforts by the F.B.I. to root our criminal influence using Bitcoin (such that they have hired people to analyze the blockchain.
In most countries the process of obtaining a Bitlicense is very similar to obtaining a gambling license. Ironically there is less initial probity starting up a Broker-Dealer (investment bank), then there is in both Bitlicenses and Gambling, but both of these industries are focused on removing criminal influence.
