The Russian Association of Cryptocurrency and Blockchain (RACIB) is the official association of supporters of cryptocurrency, blockchain, and related products in Russia.
The association represents the interests of the crypto community in the country and focuses on three main areas: cryptocurrency, blockchain, and ICOs.
The RACIB was started in the hope of further developing the digital economy in Russia.
Blockchain technology and cryptocurrency are new economic concepts that are still not clearly outlined in the legislative bases of most countries. In addition, many government agencies simply impede the implementation of crypto-economics and the development of the space and technology. But more and more counter-organisations are popping up that conversely aim to popularise blockchain technologies and lobby their interests in leading circles. In Russia, the RACIB took on such a role.
The organisation has set itself several goals, including the promotion of blockchain technologies in the country, the formation of business activities in the industry, and the development of a convenient legal background for the spread of new technologies.
The RACIB is responsible for:
- Communicating with bureaucratic representatives
- Representing blockchain community interests in government
- Developing various programs for the introduction of blockchain and cryptocurrency
- Organising various meetings, conferences, and summits
- Providing legal assistance for users working with cryptocurrencies and blockchain
- Leading the fight against fraudsters and swindlers in the fields of cryptocurrency and blockchain
- Developing a legislative framework for ICOs/IEOs
- Commenting on and criticising any misleading bills regarding cryptocurrency
The RACIB is the only organisation of this nature in Russia. According to the association, since the beginning of 2018, Russian legal entities and individuals have lost more than 270 million rubles from investments in services organised by outright fraudsters and incompetent companies in the field of crypto-technologies.
The association has put together a list of some of the most trusted companies in the fields of cryptocurrency and blockchain technology. Along with tracing unscrupulous ICO projects, the RACIB has also created a register of companies that provide services in mining, investment funds, marketing, and legal training.
The register of trusted companies will allow Russian and foreign market participants to rely on proven organisations and minimise the risk of fraud regarding the creation and development of Russian or foreign crypto businesses.
The register consists solely of organisations that have passed a voluntary security check and a financial stability test. The companies need to have experience and a solid business reputation, no court appearences, licenses and certificates (if necessary), and no tax arrears. Thanks to the information collected in the registry, all market participants can find reliable partners.
Let’s take a look at a few of the organisations on this list.
This crypto mining company builds mobile data centres called GigaBOXes for mining and has a number of large international contracts.
As well as supplying and selling equipment for mining, the company also develops firmware to increase the profitability of ASIC miners. It also provides data centre automation systems and rents its own network of data centres.
