The Central Bank of the Russian Federation considers crypto investments as a potential problem and Russia has dropped in a digital currencies adoption ranking

The Central Bank of the Russian Federation views BTC investments as a potential problem

“The transparency of this market is very low both here and in other countries. We need to work both on the data and on raising the awareness among the citizens about the risks of such unsecured and vulnerable investments, ” Danilova said.

According to her statement, the cross-border features of the crypto market give many complexities for the Central Bank, since Russians have the opportunity to acquire digital assets using platforms having foreign registration. Danilova is also confident that cryptocurrency derivatives are associated with “huge risks.”

Russia and Ukraine have lost their leadership in digital currencies adoption ranking

Analysts believe that the leadership loss is associated with a transactions’ volume drop on P2P platforms. Also, this factor could be influenced by the various changes in methodology.

“This year we have included more P2P exchanges in our analysis and distributed their activity based on web traffic, rather than fiat currencies, among the most popular P2P trading pairs, as it was during the last year,” the researchers mentioned.

The 30 most popular digital coins’ capitalization increased by 31% over the reporting period, but the trading volume fell by almost 50% compared to the previous quarter of this year. Experts believe that this situation indicates the market’s transition to the “accumulation stage”.
