Eugene Kaspersky discusses the Stuxnet virus on Cybercrimes with Ben Hammersley
In his recent interview Evgeny Kaspersky said that cryptocurrency is a great idea, but the world is not ready for it yet.
Head of IT company «Kaspersky Lab» believes that, perhaps, in 100 years, a single government will be created on the planet, which will start use virtual funds, but now individual countries want to control cryptocurrency. In his opinion, a global unified currency will be introduced in the future, although others may still be available, but play a secondary role..
Evgeny Kaspersky believes that current cryptocurrencies will not replace the existing financial system, but they can serve as the basis for a unified digital currency of the future, formed on the basis of the blockchain.
Previously, he expressed a similar point of view., speaking that the current geopolitical situation prevents the general acceptance of single virtual assets.
Despite the doubts of many about the viability of the cryptocurrency, financial structures are already starting to work with it. The Swiss bank Julius Baer will provide its clients with services related to storage, transfers and investments in virtual assets in 2019.
