MOSCOW, March 13 – RIA Novosti. The most popular cryptocurrencies among Russians, in addition to Bitcoin (BTC), are Ethereum (ETH) and Tether (USDT), experts from the cryptocurrency market told RIA Novosti. And, of course, USDT is the main stablecoin used on exchanges, “said Mikhail Bogdanov, founder of the Koshelek.ru cryptocurrency platform.
Tatiana Maksimenko, a representative of the Garantex cryptocurrency exchange, agrees with him. “In addition to bitcoin, the most popular cryptocurrencies among the residents of Russia are Ethereum and stablecoin USDT (Tether), partly DAI. The rest of the digital assets are significantly inferior to this trinity in popularity,” she says.
Bitcoin and Ethereum are seen as a vehicle for investment, she said. “And the stablecoin USDT is a way to quickly and smoothly make payments, including cross-border,” the expert continued.
Bogdanov believes that now there are many interesting projects on the cryptocurrency market that are worth watching. “Basically, these are the top 30 in terms of capitalization, as they form the basis of the market,” he added.
At the same time, Maksimenko notes that it is quite difficult to find promising, but still undervalued cryptocurrencies. “Cryptocurrencies are a highly volatile asset. It often happens that not the most popular cryptocurrency against some background – news or artificially created – grows in price several times. And then it can also fall rapidly,” she said.
