There is the CEO of the InfoWatch
Therehas been a lot of conspiracy and speculation over the real origin of the mostknown cryptocurrency in the world bitcoin.
Lots of people have been coming outwith ridiculous or even absurd fanciful theories. This time, the Russian expertin cybersecurity Natalya Kaspersky has probably swollen the ranks of such’theoreticians’.Kaspersky,who is the CEO of the InfoWatch group of companies as well as an expert incybersecurity area, said that BTC is a ‘project of US intelligence’. Shebelieves that it was elaborated for funding both US and UK specialized bodiesand their practices all over the globe.
Kaspersky, who is also a co-founder ofthe self-titled lab, named bitcoin as “dollar 2.0”.
Accordingto the Russian pro-Kremlin news agency Sputnik, Kaspersky made a statementduring her speech at the large state ITMO University in Saint Petersburg.Talking about info wars and supreme cyber power, the Russian expert showed apresentation, in which it was mentioned:”Bitcoinis a project of American intelligence agencies, which was designed to providequick funding for US, British and Canadian intelligence activities in differentcountries.”Itwas also said in the Kaspersky’s presentation that BTC crypto technology is’privatized’ the way lots of others are, including the global system Internet,free software for anonymous communication TOR and the space-based radionavigation system owned by the US GPS. She also believes that the value of BTCis managed by the holders of exchange platforms the way dollar’s price isestablished.
Notably,the US government is one among few authorities in the world which can track allthe crypto transactions to prevent money laundering.
Itis widely believed and accepted that the first decentralized virtual currencybitcoin was designed and launched by a person or a group of anonyms called’Satoshi Nakamoto’. For the first time ‘Big Daddy’ was presented nine yearsago, back in 2009. Since then, nobody has been able to discover theidentity/identities of bitcoin’s creator/s until today.However,Kaspersky is sure that Satoshi Nakamoto is merely the title for a team ofcryptographers from the US. That must look obvious as long as her theoryenvisages the supply for the US intelligence performance.
Nevertheless,it was not the only bitcoin that got under Kaspersky’s hummer. The Russianexpert also emphasized in her presentation that smartphones, which arepreferably a common thing nowadays than a bandwagon, cannot be regarded aspersonal items. Accordingto Kaspersky’s words, although developed for work and entertainment, thesegadgets are used for touting their holders from a distance.Meanwhile,according to Pundi X recent survey, 12% of the Russian poll respondents haveclaimed they own cryptocurrencies. 53% of Russian claimed they purchasedbitcoins or its ilks 6 six months ago or more. The Russian government, at thesame time, is considering the ways of regulating cryptos in the country as wellas thinks of launching the state virtual currency ‘cryptoruble’.
