Russia recently relaxed its stance against Bitcoin and other digital currencies. The Russian Central Bank had called a meeting between the country’s financial representatives to discuss about Bitcoin regulations earlier last month. Few weeks ago, the Russian president Vladimir Putin also spoke a bit about digital currency and its future on one of the Russian media outlets. We decided to understand more about the current scenario in the country and to discuss about one of the leading bitcoin exchanges catering to that geography. We spoke to Bogdan Shaldugin, the Business Development Manager at London based bitcoin exchange, Indacoin. Bogdan is based out of Moscow along with his team. We asked him a few questions about Indacoin and the Russian Bitcoin economy in general.
