+ - Russia bans Bitcoin->

Submitted by mask.of.sanity
mask.of.sanity (1228908) writes "Russia has banned digital currency Bitcoin under existing laws and dubbed use of the crypto-currency as "suspicious". The Central Bank of Russia considers Bitcoin as a form of "money substitute" or "money surrogate" (statement in Russian) which is restricted under Russian law. However, unlike use of restricted foreign currencies, Bitcoin has been outright banned. The US Library of Congress has issued a report examining the regulatory approaches national financial authorities have taken to the currency."
