MOSCOW, February 9. /TASS /. Operations of Bitcoin account holders are potentially vulnerable, the Chief of the Special Technical Activities Bureau with the Russian Ministry of Internal Affairs Alexey Moshkov said on Monday.
"Unregulated status of crypto currencies makes operations with them rather risky. Bitcoin holders appear to be absolutely insecure in case of any losses," Moshkov added.
The Russian Interior Ministry will act in regards to Bitcoin on the basis of regulations the Central Bank should develop, Moshkov said. "We rely on decisions of our regulator and will act in line with the legislative practice in this area," he added.
Bitcoin as a virtual currency is an online software code that is not regulated by any country or a bank supervision authority across the world. One Bitcoin’s feature is that it can guarantee the complete anonimity of an individual or a group of individuals making purchases. Virtual currencies are accepted for payment in more than 60,000 online stores globally.
