Question:I would like to know whether dealing with Cryptocurrencies is halal. I used to believe that it was halal, and therefore I have bought and invested into a particular cryptocurrency called Vechain (https://www.vechain.org/). Since I already own Vechain, I need to know whether it is halal or not, and if it is not halal, then what action do I need to take from there?

Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: This is a virtual currency, which is not tangible, and Sayed Sistani says that dealing with it is not permissible based on obligatory precaution. As per the answer from Sayed Sistani's son, selling the said currency is not allowed, based on obligatory precaution, in which you can refer to another scholar who allows so. You can refer to Sayed Mohammad Saeed Al-Hakeem, and sell them.

Question:I wanted to know if someone has a lot of qaza namaz since puberty, like combining all five, close to 30,000 according to rough estimates, what are the ways of clearing this number. Same goes for fasting.

Ayatollah:N/A

Answer: You have to make qaza of all the prayers and fasting you are sure you missed, so if you are confident that you missed 30000 prayers, then you have to make qaza of this number. However, if the number fluctuates between two like 25000 and 30000, you can choose the lower number, or something in between. The same thing applies to fasting.
