What’s new? Anatoly Aksakov, Chairman of the State Duma Committee on the Financial Market, said that bitcoin was attractive to investors as an alternative means of saving due to the tense situation in the US market, due to which its rate has soared recently. In this, the deputy himself believes that bitcoin has no future because the asset is volatile and the crypto market as a whole is highly unpredictable. The official treats the first cryptocurrency “condescendingly and cautiously” and notes that he would prefer to invest in Russian digital assets that are beginning to appear in the market.

What else did the deputy say? Aksakov noted that the value of bitcoin has almost doubled due to the fact that the situation in the US market is becoming tense in terms of a possible crisis. At the same time, he stressed that with the help of cryptocurrency, one can both quickly earn and quickly lose all investments.

The deputy believes that the digital ruble may be very interesting as an asset. He explained this by the fact that the current and subsequent years are the time of active use of Russia’s digital currency.
