European Governments Look To Cryptocurrencies
It’s been busy for nationally-sponsored cryptocurrencies.
Earlier in the week we saw the news that Estonia is considering holding it’s own Initial Coin Offering and launching a digital currency called “Estcoins”.
According to First Deputy Prime Minister Igor Shuvalov, Russia is planning its own digital currency on the blockchain platform. Shuvalov noted that Russia “is actively working at the international level and wants to ensure that security issues are solved from the very beginning,” and that digital currencies should no longer be “locked in a chest and hidden”.
It seems that Russia just can’t get enough of crypto. Remember that Burger King’s Russian division just announced it’s “Whoppercoin”, a digital token that local customers can earn on a special digital wallet after buying BK’s signature Whopper burger. Do you want “Crypto” with that?
