As for bitcoin payments in Serbia, [the] dinar is the country’s legal tender pursuant to the NBS Law, and all cash liabilities arising from transactions concluded in the country are expressed in dinars and settled in dinar-denominated means of payment, unless stipulated otherwise by another law. Furthermore, the Law on Payment Transactions envisages that payment transactions are performed in dinars. According to the Law on Foreign Exchange Operations, payments, collections and transfers among residents and between residents and non-residents are performed in dinars, or in foreign currencies in exceptional cases which are prescribed by the Law. The same Law defines exchange operations as the activities of purchase and sale of foreign cash and cheques denominated in a foreign currency from/to natural persons. Pursuant to the Decision on Types of Foreign Exchange and Foreign Cash to be Purchased and Sold in the Foreign Exchange Market, banks and licensed exchange dealers may buy and sell foreign cash only in currencies stipulated by the Decision. Given the above, please be advised that bitcoin is not a legal tender in the Republic of Serbia and cannot be subject to sale and purchase by banks and licensed exchange dealers. For the above reasons and the fact that there are no legal protection mechanisms, investing in bitcoin and other similar virtual currencies not issued or backed by the central bank constitutes a risk and may result in financial losses
