Top Economist Shares Why It Would Be Dreadfully Bearish If Russia Uses Crypto to Bypass Sanctions

Alex Krüger, an economist and crypto trader, has warned the crypto community to be careful what they wish for, as he aired his opinion on what would happen if Russia chooses to use cryptocurrency to bypass sanctions.

It can be recalled the United States, the United Kingdom, and others have officially sanctioned Russia for choosing to invade Ukraine instead of giving room to dialogue.

Alex Krüger, in a tweet a few days ago, stated that it would be dreadfully bearish for crypto if it’s used by Russia to bypass sanctions. He said such a move will push regulators to crush the crypto industry as a matter of national security. He thereby urged members of the crypto community not to expect it to happen.

Alex Krüger tweeted, “Russia using crypto to bypass sanctions would be dreadfully bearish don’t expect it to happen but be careful what you wish for. US regulators would be pushed to crush the industry as a matter of national security.”
