The official admits that the cryptocurrency can become tender.
«Yet with such high volatility it’s impossible. But when digital money is tied to values, they can be used as a means of payment,» explained Aksakov.
The MP also compared the hype around the cryptocurrency with the «Tulip fever». «Bubble it was or not, but then calmed down and the tulips are gone,» he said.
