Russia is the globe’s most sizable country in terms of land. On a map, Russia sits above Kazakhstan, Mongolia and China. Russia dwarfs China in geographic coverage, but not in terms of population — although Russia still lies among the globe’s most populous countries. The country is also known as the Russian Federation. The ruble serves as Russia’s national currency.

When it comes to Russia, cryptocurrency is still developing as a scene as the country evaluates its regulatory stance on various aspects of the asset class. In Russia, Bitcoin and other crypto assets are not an acceptable form of payment under the country’s regulatory climate, however. Owning cryptocurrency is also prohibited for folks working in certain government positions.
