Crypto Industry News:
The Russian Federation President Vladimir Putin believes that it is still too early to use cryptocurrencies to account for trade in energy resources such as oil.
The Russian president discussed the potential use of cryptocurrencies in a tv interview on Thursday after the plenary session of the Russian Energy Week forum.
According to a full interview published on the Kremlin’s official website, Putin said private cryptocurrencies “may act as a unit of account” but are “very volatile.”
“Cryptocurrency contracts for oil? Too early to talk about it. It works for the transfer of funds from one place to another, but when it comes to trading, especially when it comes to energy resources, in my opinion it is still premature” – stated the president.
Putin added that “everything evolves” and “has a right to exist,” adding that the Russian government is closely monitoring the cryptocurrency market. He also did not rule out that at some point cryptocurrencies will become a “center of accumulation”. “We can see this market changing. Today is a bit early, “added Putin.
The president said the cryptocurrencies “don’t have any support yet.” When asked if he thought Tesla CEO Elon Musk’s cryptocurrencies were “worthless,” Putin replied negative, explaining that he was questioning cryptocurrencies as a unit of account only in the context of energy trading.
