How to use Bitcoin in Russia
The power of digital coins depends greatly on where they can be used. Some countries are quite restrictive with regard to Bitcoin, but others accept it more and more in several areas. In Russia, for example, the number of businesses that accept Bitcoin increased.
Herman Gref, CEO of the biggest Russian bank, Sberbank, mentions:
“Cryptocurrencies represent a very interesting international experiment which breaks the paradigm of currency emission. We definitely should not restrict the use of it, but we should try to understand how it works, explore it, and find ways to regulate it.”
