According to Bloomberg, Deputy Finance Minister Alexei Moiseev said that the state should know who buys and sells bitcoins. Therefore, as early as 2018, bitcoin can officially get the status of a financial product in Russia. According to him, the recognition of the crypto currency will lead to the fact that the operations with it will be subject to the rules adopted to combat illegal transactions.

"The state should know who is at each moment of time on both sides of this financial chain. That is, if there is a transaction, people who are facilitating it, should understand who they bought and to whom they sold, "Moiseyev said.

All this testifies that in just a year the attitude of the department towards the crypto currency has completely changed. Indeed, as early as the spring of 2016, it was reported that the Finance Ministry had drafted amendments to the law, which would punish imprisonment for up to seven years for issuing crypto currency!

However, as early as August 2016 Moiseyev said that the bill providing for a "frontal prohibition" of bitcoins would be adjusted. And now a new step - the deputy head of the Ministry of Finance recognizes the need to legalize bitcoin, although he does not believe that after leaving the shadow, it will become a widely used means of payment.

"We do not believe that people will stop paying off rubles or dollars, and they will turn to be calculated by the bitcoins everywhere. Most likely, a certain product will be formed, which will take its niche, "Moiseyev explained.

In December 2016, Vadim Kalukhov, Director of the Department for Financial Technologies, Projects and Process Organization of the Bank of Russia, also pointed out the possibility of negative consequences from excessive "tightening of nuts" in the market of crypto-currencies. According to him, the adoption of too harsh measures will frighten people from those sites, where the financial authorities of Russia have the ability to monitor.

"This monitoring will remain outside the country. And I'm not sure that the lack of monitoring inside the country will increase the security or stability of the situation in Russia, "Kalukhov said.

At the same time, the head of the Central Bank Department stressed that the total value of all the world's issued crypto-currencies now does not exceed $ 15 billion, which is too low to pose a threat to financial stability.

At the beginning of March 2017, the bitcoin rate reached its highest in the history of the Crypto-currency level at $ 1327

From myself - I wonder how this can be implemented technically, if the software for working with bitcoins does not involve identification of the person, and the transactions occur through blockbodies?

In brief about the confidentiality of bitcoin

It is necessary to understand how these people assess the privacy of the detachment and how it is estimated by the scientists themselves. The concept itself determines that bitcoin transactions are public, and thus are not anonymous, but are pseudonymous. How can you "crack" the pseudonymity by tying the address to the person?

The first known approach begins with the structure of the transaction. Each transaction consists of the inputs and outputs associated with the addresses. Since transactions combine several inputs from different addresses, it is possible to reduce them to one person. Following this method, you can group addresses. An example of this is walletexplorer.com.

The second approach to deanonimization is the binding of bitcoin addresses to IP addresses. Thus, scientists note that the anonymity of users of bitcoin can be destroyed.

Faber, Ermakova and Sander told about two common ways to protect the user's personal data. First, do not reuse the address, or use a hidden address. Secondly, try to break the connection between addresses using mixers - centralized, like Bitfog, or decentralized, like CoinJoin.

But there are anonymizers, proxies and other means of circumvention.

So how does the government plan to control transactions? And how can I block them if bitcoin does not have a single payment center?
