The leading Russian professor named cryptocurrencies a project of American intelligence agencies
Cryptocurrencies are a project created by American intelligence agencies and it is easy to decipher a participant of a bitcoin transaction. Such an opinion was expressed by an economist and professor at the Moscow State Institute of International Relations Valentin Katasonov in his interview to the TV channel “Den”.
According to him, bitcoin operations are inspected which is confirmed by the liquidation of Silk Road. Although, the fact that intelligence agencies were determining the darknet for so long raised some questions.
Katasonov believes that the main point of cryptocurrencies is to “unravel traditional financial systems”.
The economist reminds that at first regulators considered cryptocurrencies to be illegal and wanted to ban them. But it turned out that it was difficult to fight with cryptocurrencies. It caused central banks to accept the idea of legalizing bitcoin and removing it from the dark net. He added that such actions were also common in Russia.
