Alexey Navalny and Cryptocurrencies

Crypto news from Russia

 

Cryptocurrencies offer a number of advantages in comparison with fiat currencies. One of the most important is that crypto money is not under the control of any central bank in the world. This and other factors made cryptocurrencies popular around the globe. One politician from Russia and his non-governmental organization benefited from this industry.

Alexey Navalny is one of the most recognizable figures in Russian politics. This year he received a substantial amount of cryptocurrency in the form of anonymous donations. From the beginning of the year, he received more than $700,000 for his NGO.

More precisely, Alexey Navalny’s Anti-Corruption Foundation received 109.6 Bitcoins from January 1 to December 1, 2019.

It is worth mentioning that due to the lack of laws, it is hard to calculate the income or donations received in cryptocurrency. In Russia, digital coins don’t have a legal status yet. In 2018, a package of laws and amendments was introduced in the State Duma, which is the lower house of parliament. However, it is hard to say when the Russian parliament will approve this law.
