If you put 100$ into bitcoin in 2011 it’d be worth $335 million today 🤮— LYFUVARATCHET (@LYFUVARATCHET) 29 ноября 2017 г.
A number of countries of the world have already opened their markets for cryptocurrencies.
The Bank of Russia is currently against settlements in cryptocurrencies, and also against equating them to foreign currencies, seeing in them signs of a "financial pyramid."
Earlier, Russian President Vladimir Putin said that it was necessary to regulate cryptocurrencies in such a way as to protect the interests of citizens, business and the state on the one hand, and on the other, not to create unnecessary barriers. Bitcoin's market cap of over $170 billion is comparable to that of Intel, Toyota Motor or Citigroup.
