A poll shows that 77% of Russian investors prefer bitcoin and other digital currencies to gold, while many Russian officials are fundamentally opposed to digital currencies.
to the Report Crypto Potito, a new poll shows that nearly three-quarters of Russian investors believe that digital currencies are better investment tools than gold. Less than 9% believe that this precious metal is superior to other options, and 14% think that the currencies of different countries, such as the dollar and the euro, are the best choice for investment.
Citizens of the world’s largest country seem to have a broad view of digital currencies in terms of geographical area. A recent survey by the Forex Traders Association in Russia shows that about 77 percent of Russian investors consider digital currencies to be the “most futuristic” investment tool.
The second place is the top financial instruments related to the currencies of different countries and 14% of the participants have chosen this option. It is interesting to know that only 8.8% have chosen gold, while many people refer to it as a safe asset and a good tool for storing value.
Evgeny Masharov, a senior official at the Russian Forex Traders Association, said Russian investors have recently been looking at digital currencies as an investment tool and do not see it as a “promotional product”. He added that 35% of respondents to the survey are active traders in the digital currency market.
23% of respondents said they had no experience with digital currencies, 80% said they planned to enter the market in the future, and 8% said they would never invest in digital currencies.
Masharov also said that although there are many options for saving money in Russia, more than 50% of investors have chosen digital currencies as their asset storage tool.
[نتایج نظرسنجی] It shows the fact that more than half of the respondents invest in digital currencies to increase their savings, despite many short-term projects in this field.
Although most Russian investors are interested in digital currencies, a significant number of Russian officials are almost opposed to this asset class. Russia’s central bank governor, Elvira Nabiullina, for example, recently said that the price of bitcoin and other digital currencies is fluctuating sharply, and warned investors to be wary of “terrible” losses in the market. He went on to say that investing in digital currencies is more risky than any other option.
Sergei Shvetsov, a member of the Russian central bank’s board of directors, has added more skepticism to his remarks. He said investing in digital currencies is so risky that it can be compared to entering a minefield.
A member of the board of the Central Bank of Russia said:
When someone buys bitcoins [انگار که] He has entered the minefield and there is no one other than himself who can help him and no one can protect him. There is no reason to go where you are not protected by the Russian Federation. Where your money is easily stolen and there is nothing you can do about it.
