Former head of the US Federal Reserve Janet Yellen, known for her extreme skepticism about cryptocurrency, unexpectedly for herself became the owner of a small part of Bitcoin, having received it as a gift.

It is reported that the founder of the Bitcoin-gift service Biterica Raz Suprovichi sent Yellen 0.0031642 BTC (approximately $ 20) via her email address at the University of Berkeley.

On the question of how the former head of the Fed will manage the new acquisition, Yellen replied that she had received the gift, but had not yet studied the possibility of using it.

"I did receive a gift of bitcoins this morning and have been very busy ever since so I've not looked into it further," wrote Yellen and stressed that she does not give up her views on cryptocurrency.

Suprovichi said that he wanted to help Yellen to learn more about Bitcoin and the gift may encourage her to do so.

"Based on the way she spoke about it at the conference, it seemed that she had never owned any bitcoin," he said. "People are afraid of the unknown. I was hoping that when she logged into her bitcoin wallet with her ID and password, she would see it's just like a typical online bank account. The money she owns is there, in her control, ready to spend ... I hope that this sparks her openness to the technology."

"Maybe all policy-makers should be gifted a little bit of bitcoin," he added.

Recall that this week the former Fed chairman said that she was not a fan of Bitcoin, noting some of the problems associated with the cryptocurrency volatility, investment risks and threats of hacking cryptocurrency exchanges.
