Bitcoin use to expand in near future – ex-Russian Finance Minister

SHARE:

The use of Bitcoin will expand in the coming years, former Russian Finance Minister Aleksey Kudrin told RT at the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum (SPIEF). Kudrin warned of online crime and lack of regulation concerning the cryptocurrency.


“I don’t rule out that there is a bubble here, but for several years we will have an expansion of bitcoin use. We are facing risks of deflation, fraud schemes [and] a lack of sufficient regulation. But it will be used for now, will expand its boundaries,” Kudrin said.

Bitcoin has been surging in popularity as a digital payment system that allows users anywhere in the world to transact directly without interference from intermediaries, governments, regulators, or central banks. However, some worry that the surge in value of bitcoin can turn it into an asset bubble in an unregulated market.

Speaking on the recent nine-month extension of the OPEC deal, Kudrin said that it will “work more-less effectively” till mid-2018.

In May, the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) reached a deal with Russia and other major producers to prolong output cuts for nine months until the end of March 2018. Oil prices dropped sharply ahead of the announcement.

After mid-2018, “it will be more difficult to extend the deal, as other producer companies in other regions can block the decline, which some countries voluntarily decided to take.”

The deal between 24 oil-producing countries is expected to stabilize the market and reduce the global oil stock by the first quarter of 2018.

According to the ex-finance minister, other companies also have opportunities for oil production.


“New competition will emerge, again the same question will arise – should we cut production so that others occupy our place in the market?
'Ruble is overpriced'

Speaking about the value of the Russian ruble, Kudrin noted that it is slightly overpriced.


“If the ruble is overpriced, then only slightly. If oil prices remain at its current level and won’t change, then we can expect a small, 1-1.5 percent easing of the exchange rate.”
