According to a study by the SCHARD service, 24 billion rubles of offer are available for Russians who want to sell cryptocurrencies and withdraw funds to cards of large banks. These are unregulated online exchangers.
Speakers from the security service for cryptocurrency assets SCHARD presented the results of their new research at the Sber blockchain conference. According to their data, the supply volume on the P2P exchange market in Russia when selling cryptocurrencies is 24 billion rubles.
The exchange is done through cards issued by all the major banks in the country. This creates risks both for users and for the banks themselves, whose cards are used not only by retail users, but also by these unregistered moneychangers.
