Founder of a social network Vkontakte and Telegram messenger Pavel Durov told that he had bought 2000 Bitcoin for 1.5 million dollars in 2013. After four years this amount of money has increased by more than 20 times and is now 35 million dollars.
“I do not really understand russian officials trying to limit purchase of Bitcoin. For the first time in 70 years world economy has a chance to resist hegemony of the United States that once made the whole world use their national money as a reserve currency and since then has been literally collecting tribute from all countries. They pay their debts issuing more and more dollars and buy assets all around the world” – posted Durov on his Vkontakte page.
Meanwhile the majority of crypto-investors community has already been using Telegram.
