The UAE Central Bank has warned about the use of cryptocurrency, including Bitcoin, saying it did not issue a license to allow the currency in the local market.

The statement comes after Bitcoin hit a record high of $6,148 on Saturday. 

Bitcoin prices fell to a low of $3,000 in September, when Jamie Dimon, chief executive of JP Morgan called it a “fraud.”

The total market cap stood at $98 billion, equal to that of Kraft Heinz or Honeywell.

The cryptocurrency market has gained more than 6 times so far this year, outperforming all other assets.
