According to the article, the local Communication Ministry has proposed to the government that "cryptocurrency such as Bitcoin" should be implemented as legal tender.

The deputy minister of the authority, Zahidi Zainul Abidin, commented that they want to legalize crypto in order to get young users to utilize Bitcoin for daily transactions and provide them with necessary assistance.

Currently, cryptocurrency is under the regulation of the local central bank and Securities Commission of Malaysia.
