The Bank of Uganda is open to the idea of cryptocurrency businesses participating in its Regulatory Sandbox, inviting members of the Blockchain Association of Uganda (BAU) to share their knowledge with the central bank.

A letter from the bank dated June 1 to the chairperson of the BAU, Kwame Rungunda, referred to a meeting between the two parties in early May. The central bank also advised the country’s crypto advocacy group to brush up on the sandbox regulations before it made time for further technical discussions.

The recent letter appears to be a u-turn in the Bank of Uganda’s approach toward cryptocurrency.
