Russians still know very little about Bitcoin

A new social project, developed by “All-Russian Center for the Study of Public Opinion, or VCIOM,” has revealed new information about the attitudes towards Bitcoin in Russia. According to the latest data received, around 56 % of Russian citizens know about Bitcoin and in general about cryptocurrencies.

Despite that fact, less than a half of population realize that Bitcoin is also used as a way of payment and a good investment. What is more, a very little percentage of Russians can explain what is a cryptocurrency and why it was created.

Deputy Finance Minister Alexei Moiseev stated that “Nowadays in Russia, the hard cap of 1 billion rubles [approximately $17.3 million] can be raised through an ICO, and each unqualified speculator will have the opportunity to contribute a greatest of 50,000 rubles [about $864].”

On the one hand, Russian Federation aims to protect its market and cryptocurrency community from speculations, unqualified companies and scams. On the other hand, many high-professional companies will not have a chance to run a successful token sale and to raise a sufficient amount of money for the development of its project.
