"Thirteen websites specializing in cryptocurrency are now restricted in Russia as the government sets out to limit cryptocurrency trading in the country."

So is BitcoinTalk doomed for regular Russians? Shocked

I believe this is just plain stupidity.

WE NEED to gather up and accelerate the process of setting up rational and correct regulations on cryptocurrencies before governments decide what do on their own.

"  Additional websites are expected to be banned in the future, according to the central bank. "

These guys are unbelievable.

" In August, Deputy Finance Minister Alexey Moiseev revealed a plan to restrict the sale of cryptocurrencies to “qualified investors,” saying that “ordinary people” are ill-equipped to deal with such “very dangerous investments that could lead to loss of money."

So he's saying that people do not know anything and only they are intelligent enough to know something and decide what each person in Russia should or should not do with their own money.

Putin’s Year in Scandals



Vladimir Putin's spokesman in luxury watch scandal


As Vladimir Putin’s official spokesman, Dmitry Peskov is no stranger to fielding allegations of wrong doing and corruption from the Russian opposition.
But this weekend the Kremlin’s public face found himself facing down media outrage aimed not at the Russian head of state, but himself.
Mr Peskov married his partner of five years, Olympic champion figure skater Tatiana Navka, in Sochi on Saturday, in a sumptuous event attended by Russia's high society at the Black Sea resort’s most prestigious hotel.
But it was Mr Peskov’s choice of timepiece that caught the Russian media’s attention. "

Will Russia really leave the crypto currency world? what will happen to the ICO's that most are Russian lead. Are they doing this to manipulate the price of the coin then suddenly go back to it again in the future? Or are they serious with the crypto rubble?

Which sites? The article doesn't name any. They could be total obscurities for all we know, and knowing how clueless the Russians have been so far they probably are.

What's the score with VPNs in Russia? Are they going for a Chinese style wipe out of all of them? Russia is a strange place indeed.

That's the thing, no specific sites are named, might be just another threat-like BS from the government.
I really don't imagine the ICO world without russians since like 90% of it IS russians Cheesy

Well, if things get really dirty there, let's just hope all the cool russians leave their country before that!

I have long distrusted both the statements of politicians from Russia and the news from this country. They are so contradictory that it is impossible to add a complete picture of what is happening in Russia regarding the crypto currency. However, if 13 sites connected with the crypto currency are really banned there, something strange is happening in Russia. Is this forum going to be banned there? This is a complete absurdity. No other country has done this. What is the Russian government afraid of? This is clearly not a concern for its citizens, how they can present such steps.

All operators in Russia that offer VPN services signed an agreement with the government about what will be on demand to provide the government with information about users and ensure disables the ability to go through VPN for restricted sites. Russia is a totalitarian state and they can expect any action. I hope that the Russians will show their attitude to Putin in the next elections.

Russia is known for banning everything that can't be controlled. Read a story about Telegram which was recently a step away from being banned in Russia. Looks crazy as it was founded by a guy from Russia Smiley

Yea I would also like to have those sites listed somewhere so I can verify whether this is actually true or not. I also read that Russia wants to 'protect' their citizens from dangerous investments like crypto currency. This is really weird because in a free market everybody is able to decide freely if they want to invest in stocks, real estate or crypto. Right? But at the end of the day if it's true it doesn't really matter because solutions like a VPN will certainly help Russian crypto enthusiasts.

From banning Bitcoin/cryptocurrencies to allowing it to thinking about regulating it then strangely starting to blocking it?
What's going on in this country? I would like to know in what conditions they took their decisions. I mean fully awake?  Tongue

Russian officials of different ranks, including the president of the country, spoke for a long time about the need to support the crypto currency, met with Buterin, and made plans to switch the government to blockchein, which should improve its effectiveness. And what do we see in practice? Prohibition of sites related to crypto currency? And participation in this forum for the Russians will be banned. I do not understand these contradictory words and actions of the Russian authorities. If, of course, more information about the marketing of 13 sites in Russia is reliable information.

I think this is going to happen in other countries also because govt thinks that everything needs to be under their control and if they are not able to curb it then the ban comes in place Russia exactly did the same thing. So wondering will the other countries go Russia way?

So is China, and they understood they can't ban crypto, so they have to support it and use it to their own advantage. I am sure Russia will not make stupid mistakes here as well...

This is a very unreasonable move by the Russian government. After all, the crypto currency has already begun to develop rapidly in all countries. And it can not be stopped. I think that such prohibitions can cause a riot

LOL. Just like what I have said months and months ago, Russia is anti-bitcoin. That's why I wasn't surprised to find this kind of moved from them. This is just the first step, later they will really go and put the hammer ban on everything crypto's. And those who still believed that Putin and Russia is supporting bitcoin, then you have to think your stance. Because as much as we want Russia to accept cryptocurrencies, they won't simply because it can't be controlled. That's why I find it funny about comments, saying that Putin will support it, I sorry but it won't be happening. But for our Russian community, I think OTC or some underground bitcoin trading is the only options to do for now.

The words and actions of representatives of public authorities in Russia do not lend themselves to logic. They first talk about adherence to the crypto currency and immediately begin to restrict their citizens even in the issue of communication on the topic of crypto currency. This behavior is rather strange and does not bode well. It seems that for the citizens of Russia who want to deal with crypto currency, hard times will come.

What authorities of Russia did not like these crypto-currency sites? I would like to hear some explanation from them about their actions. This ban sites is somehow illogical. Or is it really just a test of how society will react to such a ban, then to conduct a more serious attack on the crypto currency.

"The reason for the deficit in the video card market was Sberbank, buying up video cards for its laboratory of artificial intelligence."

Do you believe it? What kind of AI does Sberbank need? I didnt heard anything from Gref (CEO and Chairman of the Executive Board) about these plans. Governance in Russia tells only lies.

So it is logical to close exchanges "to control" crypto.

It seems to me that Putin's friends have decided to earn money due to the fact that put in the work of the GPU which I bought due to the budget. What kind of artificial intelligence in Russia can be discussed? Lol. Poor, technically backward country. Still laboratory at the Bank. Does anyone Russian would believe in such nonsense?

Yes exactly ..
If they are , then sites must be specified . If this is really happening then bitcoin and ICOs must be ready for a downfall .
Russian users must convince their government to stop this .

If my understanding is true then the Russian Government has done well in protecting its citizens against a potential scam.

Is this the reason why less number of ICO's are being released now a days because Russia is also leaving the crypto currency world. Most ICOs are created by Russians and I noticed that unlike before ICOs are lessen.
