Since Putin's energy chief Pavel Zavalny stated it may be utilized by friendly countries, the digital currency has risen by roughly 5%.
This is because Russia said that it could sell oil and gas in Bitcoin in an effort not to be hit with sanctions.
In the last week, Putin's energy chief Pavel Zavalny said that the digital money could be used by friends. It has risen about 5% since then.
This is what he said: They could use different currencies, such as money from Turkey and China, depending on the buyer's preference.
The Kremlin wants to help Russia's currency, which has lost 20% of its value this year, in order to stay out of the hands of the West's sanctions.
During a speech on Thursday, Mr. Zavalny said that "We have been urging China for a long time to switch to national currencies for the rouble and the yuan."

When I woke up on Sunday, the price of bitcoin was about £34,156. It was about £32,576 on Thursday.
Analyst David Broadstock, who works for the Energy Studies Institute in Singapore, said: "Russia is already feeling the effects of sanctions that were never before seen in the world."
In many ways, Bitcoin is seen as an asset that is going to grow quickly.
But China, one of Russia's main "friendly" trading partners, doesn't allow bitcoin to be used right now, so it can't be used there.
People think that Russian oligarchs are also using virtual currencies to avoid sanctions, but this isn't 100% true.
There have been calls from politicians in Ukraine, the US, and Europe to ban Russian users from some crypto-currency platforms, but some of these platforms say they won't.
The Sun reported earlier this month that the US could take Russian cryptocurrency assets as a way to make Vladimir Putin's troops leave Ukraine.
Daniel Strachman, who has worked on Wall Street for more than 20 years, told the Sun: "It wouldn't surprise me if Washington elites targeted crypto assets that they think have an effect on Putin and get him to stop attacking Ukraine." This is what he said.
"It is easy to move money around when you hide it behind a virtual private network," he said.
It's important for any new policies to be "sustainable" and "work for a long time," not just for them to work on their first day.
Strechman said that cryptos are taking over the world, and people are moving toward them.
There is a lot of volatility and stability in the currency because of the political situation, so people are going to one that has both.
