Introduction
Quote
Russian President Vladimir Putin has issued his first remarks on bitcoin and digital currencies in an educational forum broadcast on domestic TV network Russia 24.

Local news sources including Gazeta, state-operated news agency RIA and TASS are reporting Putin indicated his belief that the Bank of Russia, the country's central bank, has so far taken a reasonable stance on the technology by exploring, not rejecting, its applications.

Further, he suggested that while he considered the use of digital currency as money to be perhaps problematic, the technology could be best considered as a novel way to calculate transactions.

man, if BRICS works to integrate the blockchain it could be really huge for bitcoin. might not be too great for the rest of the world, but disruption is the whole point isn't it? break the old system, replace it with something crypto-friendly. bring it on Vlad!
