State officials do not like to answer questions about such significant funds. This money, on the one hand, appeared in the assets of Bulgaria after the discovery of a series of frauds with customs.
Conversely, there seems to be no legal mechanism for BTC to store valuables within the entire state. Anyway, it is interesting news that there are more Bitcoins than gold in Bulgaria!
