As reported earlier on Coingape, the Russia Federation had passed a bill on digital currencies which introduced as a series of norms for the citizens to follow.

The Regulatory Environment in Russia around cryptocurrencies and Bitcoin has been quite receptive compared to other nations. France also keeps a neutral attitude towards cryptocurrencies and ICOs. US, India, China and many other nations are against ICOs as they are either Ponzi schemes or based on wrong fundamentals of being a security or a cryptocurrency. However, Russia has planned to allow them unobstructedly.

A country which promotes a range of cryptocurrencies and blockchain projects can soon be expected to be inclined to hold Bitcoin [BTC]. Mati Greenspan, the Senior Market Analyst at eToro noted,

“The CBR [Central Bank of Russia] will be holding BTC reserves within 2 years. Mark my words.”

Currently, Russia holds 4554 billion US Dollars in Central Bank Reserve. If Greenspan’s prediction holds true and Russia assigns even 1% of its reserve value to Bitcoin [BTC], it’s market capitalization would increase by $45.5 billion.

Do you agree with Greenspan’s views given the current regulatory environment in Russia? Please share your views with us.
