The lion’s share of Russians (56%) are aware of Bitcoin according to a new survey conducted by the Russian Public Opinion Research Center. Meanwhile, 74% of Russians are familiar with the term ‘Bitcoin’, and only 2% of Russians have invested in Bitcoin. Notably, almost half of the population (43%) is certain that you cannot buy real-life goods or services with BTC.

Contrary to the rest of the population, people with higher education, young men (18-25 years), active Internet users, and those who reside in the country’s two major cities (Moscow and Saint Petersburg) seem to be keen on Bitcoin. The last demographic has the highest awareness level at 75%. Hence, the typical Russian Bitcoin enthusiast is an educated young man living in a large city.
