As for interesting events, it is important to mention that National Bank of Romania had comments on cryptocurrencies. The governor of this structure, Mugur Isarescu stated that cryptos cannot be adopted as currencies because they fail to perform functions of traditional fiat money. Isarescu added that cryptos’ emission is done by anonymous persons and not by authorized bodies. This may increase frauds and scams in future.

As for Blockchain, Isarescu mentioned that the technology is worth studying. Romanian authorities are ready to adopt it but the crypto market needs some serious adjustments to be adopted.
