The important question is, will people trust this currency. Also interesting, will it be pushed by governance, for example to obliged to use for governmental processes.

Paolo Beffagnotti , speaking about the Russian example, the government may decide that online services for governmental processes could be only paid by this new currency. - Patrick 11 months ago
yes Patrick Henz that could be the case - Paolo 11 months ago

I stay with currencies I know and banks I have some trust in. 'Russian Cryptocurrencies' sounds like a high risk option!
