Russian Prime Minister, Dimitry Medvedev, has said the bearish market of 2018 does not mean we should bury crypto.

Bright and a Dark Side

The Prime Minister expressed his remarks at Gaidar Forum. The forum is an annual international scientific gathering that focuses primarily on economics and how science and technology can help it.

Dimitry Medvedev, who also happens to be the ex-president of Russia, pointed out how significant cryptocurrencies have become in the modern global financial systems, saying that it is being discussed by all levels of organizations and governments. The high speed of adoption of the technology, the radical changes in the traditional markets and the increasing social inequalities are all interconnected.

The Prime Minister said that like any technology, blockchain and cryptocurrencies have both, a bright and a dark side. He said, “But sure, it is not a reason to bury them [cryptocurrencies]. There is both a bright side and a dark side here, as well as in any social phenomena and any economic institution. We should monitor carefully what is going on in the space.”
