俄总统普京就数字货币发表看法

日前,俄国总统弗拉基米尔·普京在教育论坛上首次发表了其对比特币等数字货币的看法,演讲通过俄罗斯24电视网络发布。

当地新闻媒体,包括Gazeta,国有新闻通讯社RIA和TASS皆报道称,普金在讲话中透露出,迄今为止,作为国有央行的俄罗斯银行在对待科技不断发展的问题上立场鲜明,且一直都在积极探索新应用。

而且,普金还指出,尽管将数字货币视为流通货币或许会衍生出一些问题,但是,我们应当将科技的发展看成是交易管理、计算的创新方式。

普金称:“比特币背后并没有强大的实体做支撑,这也成为它们的致命缺点。比特币同其他货币没有任何联系,也没有货币支撑。然而,作为核算单位,无论是比特币还是其他数字货币,它们都可以发挥其作用,而且接受比特币的人会越来越多。也就是说,作为某种核算单位,比特币还是有使用价值的。”

普金还补充道:“我们并没有反对数字货币的使用,但是,至少在现如今,在比特币的普及上,还存在基本问题有待解决,而且问题十分棘手。”

晚些时候,一名总统的发言人在另一份声明中详细阐释了数字货币发展的技术问题,其中包括比特币。

位于莫斯科的比特币交易所ICBIT的首席执行官Aleksey Bragin表示:“这正是比特币将合法化最有力信号。尽管俄罗斯之前并没有禁止比特币的使用,但是,我们却不能开展比特币业务(不能开具比特币银行账户),而且,比特币采矿一直属于灰色地带。”

其他相关人员则认为,此次俄罗斯在对待数字货币的问题上迈出了积极的一步,要知道,俄罗斯一直以来在对待数字货币的问题上一直持有保守意见。

Indacoin的首席执行官Stanislav Kosorukov称:“尽管普金并没有发表任何具体的关于比特币在俄合法化的言论,但无疑,此举向我们表明了,俄罗斯政府希望能对数字货币有更进一步了解,而不是阻止其发展。”

比特币新闻来源BTCsec的Ivan Tikhonov认为,普金的此次声明政府对数字货币技术的发展表示支持。

Ivan还表示:“至少有一件事情我们十分肯定,他们并没有表示将要禁止比特币交易,或表示比特币交易非法。”

此次声明发表之前就有报告显示,俄罗斯立法委员正在修改法律草案,指出作为货币替代品的比特币的使用属于非法。

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 manage or calculate transactions.

"[Bitcoins] are backed by nothing. This money [is backed by nothing], that's the point, this is the major problem. They are not really linked to anything and backed by nothing," Putin said. "However as an accounting unit, these 'coins' or whatever are they called, they can be used, and their adoption becomes wider and wider. As some kind of unit in some account, probably, it's possible."

Putin continued:

"We do not reject anything, but there are serious, really fundamental issues related to its wider usage, at least, today."

A spokesperson for the president later specified in a separate announcement that he was speaking broadly about digital currency technology, not specifically bitcoin.

"It's the biggest sign of bitcoin legality now in Russia," ICBIT Trading CEO Aleksey Bragin told CoinDesk. "It was not forbidden before, but it was impossible to operate any bitcoin business in Russia (no bank accounts, to start with), and mining was always a gray area."

Other members of the local community saw it as a similarly positive step for a country that has long had one of the most reactionary stances to the technology.

"While Mr Putin didn't say anything concrete about bitcoin legislation in Russia, it's definitely a good sign that our government doesn't want to prohibit something before getting a better insight in the field," Indacoin CEO Stanislav Kosorukov said.

Ivan Tikhonov of Russian-language bitcoin news source BTCsec added his belief that the statements did much to advance the conversation regarding whether their is government support for the technology.

"One thing is certain, no one talked about the fact that bitcoin is prohibited or required to be prohibited," he added.

The announcement follows reports that the country's lawmakers had updated a draft bill aimed at outlawing the use of digital currencies as monetary surrogates.
