Bitcoin & Cryptocurrency Trading in Albania

As early as the 2000's, the economy of Albania was still largely centrally controlled by the Communist Party of Albania. Not until the North American Treaty Organization helped end the conflict in Kosovo did the Albanian economy begin to open up and become more free.

Today, Albanians enjoy a realtively free market economy that is still growing and maturing. Just like other free market economies, Albanians have been adopting Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies as part of their portfolios.
