As Russia continues to move away from the US dollar, RT’s Keiser Report follows the growing calls in the country to recognize bitcoin as legal tender.

“It’s the ultimate chess move” for Russia, says Max. “I hope they don’t wait too much longer, because we’ve been on here for ten years saying this exact same thing, my friends in Moscow.
