announced they will be banning imports of Russian gold as a means to tighten sanctions against Russia during a meeting in Munich, Germany. Many people believe the Russian gold ban might favor Bitcoin’s worth in the international market.
Ever since Russia’s attack on Ukraine, the U.S. and European Union have been tightening the international sanctions against Moscow to force a stop to the war. However, Russia remains adamant about taking over Ukraine.
In a recent meeting among G-7 nations, the leaders declared they will be banning Russian gold imports into their countries as part of the sanctions. Experts believe this ban can leave severe consequences on the international market.
For Bitcoin, this means good news because the ban on gold might motivate Russians and other nations’ citizens to trade cryptocurrencies.
For Russia, the ban from all its fiat networks might lead it to adopt cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin as a source of income. All in all, experts believe this ban on gold is just a strategy by developing nations to boost the US dollar in the market.
