Estonia did not only ban #defi, but they also banned #bitcoin.

You are not allowed to download wallet and hold #bitcoin anymore in Estonia.

The linked article really doesn't seem to imply that.

Under "Expanded definition of “virtual currency service”" it seems to apply exclusively to businesses.

My guess: it doesn't matter a damn what the exact language is, they'll use it any way they want. But secondly, I don't believe for one second that either open source wallet developers or holders of personal wallets, will be held liable using this kind of law.

I think they want to find a way to target anybody setting up stuff like ICOs, defi, investment schemes, etc. Basically any organized system of investment.

"Not banning crypto, but effectively forcing all crypto to be custodian only. Which if effectively the same end result. [...]"
