Humanity has used various instruments as a medium of exchange during its history, from shells to the paper pieces with which we are familiar. However, technological development has eliminated much of the need to give the medium of exchange a physical substrate, making it virtual and preserving only its most important part: the information and value attributed to it by society. Thus, this movement has generated many types of medium of exchange, including Bitcoin and the other Cryptocurrencies. These goods, created and maintained by specific social groups, expand daily as the time passes and the markets realize the great opportunities generated by this new technology. However, such disruption raises great questions in the legal sphere since the legal system currently in force finds it difficult to deal with the Cryptocurrencies given its unique characteristics. Thus, the present paper seeks to verify how the Cryptocurrency fits in the Brazilian legal system and, given the absence of specific regulation regarding the subject, how this sector could be regulated of self-regulated at the national level. Thus, through the analysis of national and foreign doctrine and jurisprudence, analysis of empirical data and legislation, this research presents the functioning of the cryptocurrencies, using Bitcoin as an example given the fact that it is the most popular Cryptocurrency, indicates its legal status (which makes its use and legal treatment better defined) and how the regulation and self-regulation of its use should be carried out, pointing out how this issue was addressed in other countries and how similar structures and markets dealt with issues related to new technologies.
