Óðinsson said about it that "(parliament) can make it unlawful to possess or exchange Auroracoin, in any case, they will always be unable to control such a decentralized framework, or prevent Icelanders from utilizing the cash, without transforming Iceland into a police state."
Between its pinnacle of around 0.1 BTC and November 26, 2017, Auroracoin's worth tumbled to 0.00008027 BTC.
