It came from Russia in a statement while Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies were in great fluctuation. Russian President Vladimir Putin’s spokesperson, Dmitry Peskov, made statements about Bitcoin in a session where he answered journalists’ questions today.
Noting that Russia has no reason to recognize Bitcoin, the spokesperson added that it will not benefit them either.
Peskov answered the questions that came after El Salvador made Bitcoin a legal currency, “Russia is not ready for such steps”.
Describing Bitcoin as a “quasi-currency,” Peskov said that equating it to official monetary instruments would do nothing but harm the country’s financial system.
The fact that Bitcoin is an immature currency and threatens the financial systems of states causes countries to hesitate. However, it should not be forgotten that it is the people who elect these governments and administrators. So as long as grassroots adoption and acceptance continues to grow, it won’t matter what executives or governments think.
People who are impoverished every day due to the wrong monetary policies of governments and who want financial freedom will force governments to adopt cryptocurrencies and Bitcoin. It’s just a matter of time.
