Bitcoin could become a controlled currency in Brazil in the in the vicinity of long run. This according to Aureo Ribeiro, a federal deputy in Brazil.

Two weeks ago, a new examine unveiled that 50% of Brazilians would like Bitcoin as legal tender in the nation.
Ribeiro’s feedback are the outcome of the approval of the so-named Brazilian “Bitcoin Law” to be put in fronts of the Plenary of the Chamber of Deputies. The law that has been in growth for many years, could by its design, be a referent for other nations who also look to control electronic assets, the deputy said.
