A new website showing a map of cryptocurrency teller machines and other points of sale has been launched in Russia. The platform currently provides information about bitcoin ATM locations in the city of Moscow but its developers plan to expand its coverage globally.
Cryptocoinmap Has Some Useful Features
Cryptocoinmap.ru is quite similar in design to the popular bitcoin ATM tracker website Coinatmradar. At this early stage, there’s still a lot of room for improvement but the platform already has some unique features. It has been created by two Russian companies, Nanobit and Sova.rf, which have already expressed their intentions to continue to develop it.
At present, Cryptocoinmap shows several locations in the Russian capital where crypto enthusiasts are able to trade fiat with digital money. Six of them are bitcoin ATMs, where residents and visitors of Moscow can buy cryptocurrencies, and one is an exchange which sells and buys virtual coins. The website provides information about their addresses, phone numbers and business hours as well as images of the surroundings.
All points of sale support major cryptocurrencies such as bitcoin core (BTC), bitcoin cash (BCH), ethereum (ETH), litecoin (LTC), and dash. The exchange rates are displayed in a number of fiat currencies including the Russian ruble, U.S. dollar, British pound, Japanese yen, Chinese yuan, Indian Rupee, and Kazakhstani tenge. Bitfinex is the crypto exchange used for reference.
The service allows users to filter the suggestions by business hours, available services and supported cryptocurrencies. The platform is based on Yandex Maps, the Russian alternative to Google Maps, and it offers some useful features, including directions to the BATMs and real-time traffic updates.
Cryptocoinmap lists all supported coins with their current prices in fiat sourced from major global and local digital asset exchanges such as Coinbase, Kraken, Bitfinex, Bitstamp, Bittrex, Poloniex, Cex, Exmo, Livecoin, and Yobit. The numbers are accompanied by graphs showing the daily, weekly and yearly price movements.
Developers Plan for Global Coverage
Representatives of the companies behind the project recently told Forklog they will only add new ATMs and change bureaus that are operated within the framework of the law. Businesses applying to be listed on Cryptocoinmap must provide proof they do not owe any taxes to the government and present documents demonstrating their financial viability.
Right now, the website displays only seven locations in the Russian capital, but Nanobit and Sova.rf want to expand the coverage to include over 100 regions around the world. The companies have promised to add 200 new locations by the end of the first quarter of 2019.
Coinatmradar, which is the leading BATM tracker site, provides information about over 4,000 cryptocurrency ATMs globally. These are operated by 520 companies in 74 countries. According to its data, there are currently at least 11 bitcoin ATMs in and around the Russian capital, as well as dozens of devices in other regions throughout the vast country that spans 11 timezones.

Longhash, a crypto and blockchain media and analysis site, recently launched its own Bitcoin Tracker. In an effort to “offer more peace of mind to investors, regulators and the general public,” users can basically find the origin of BTC, tracking it through the many places it has traveled.
Longhash Launches Bitcoin Tracker
“Compared to the traditional financial system,” Longhash explains, “cryptocurrency can seem murky. Bitcoin transactions are pseudonymous, which makes them attractive to criminals.” And while that statement can for sure trigger a great many Bitcoiners to outrage, and probably should, the site believes mainstreaming crypto adoption will come with the advent of tools for transparency.
It’s also a interesting juxtaposition on where many in the ecosystem seem to be, philosophically. Privacy-based coins, regardless of their actual efficacy, are all the rage as developers look to thwart minders, official and otherwise, to bring about a more cash-like experience.
For Longhash, attracting institutional money seems to outweigh such a trend. “When you send money to a Bitcoin address, who exactly are you dealing with?,” they ask. With that in mind, they’ve created a BTC address search to their homepage.
“To be clear,” Longhash stresses, “we are not revealing the identities of Bitcoin holders. We just hope to offer more peace of mind to investors, regulators and the general public. The mainstream perception that cryptocurrency is associated with crime is not good for the industry as a whole.”
Fuzzy, Precise, Address Ratings, and Dirty Money
To discover the site’s version of transparency, users can dial up the Longhash homepage and click on an Address link to enable two types of bitcoin address searches, Fuzzy and Precise. A fuzzy search on the Longhash page asks only for a “few characters of an address.” Users can examine “10,000 richest bitcoin addresses” from richest first on down. Precise searches appear to live up to the title. The curious enter a BTC address, and available to them are balances, BTC sent and received amounts, and transaction history generally.
An interesting quirk of these searches is the Address Rate. “We rate addresses by analyzing their transactions as well as the addresses that it sends money to and receives money from. If we find, for example, that an address is transacting with another address that is affiliated with crime, the first address will get a lower rating. The higher the address rate, the more trustworthy the address,” the company notes.
Like dollars, bitcoin can pass through various routes to wind up in your wallet. Should you want to know more about the address sending them your way, Longhash believes they can provide insight. “We classified four main address types,” they argue. “The light blue refers to a mixing service, which purposely disguises the source of a Bitcoin transaction. The darker blue refers to a cryptocurrency exchange. The magenta refers to a mining pool, and the orange refers to a gambling site. The light purple refers to an old address that is no longer in use.”
Probably the most interesting part of the experience is how classifications are charted in colored rings. The inner-inner ring is a BTC’s origin. If that ring was blue, this would mean its first 30 moves came by way of formal crypto exchanges. If the next most inner ring is purple and a mix of orange, this means the BTC had both exchange and gambling site origins. The outer ring then, shows how, in this example, BTC “came from a combination of cryptocurrency exchanges, mixing services and mining pools, gambling sites,” they claim. “So by using this chart, you can see if a Bitcoin has any relationship to dirty money.”

The Board has been created as an independent body including internationally recognized Shariah experts, the Arabian Business Community reported. Their role will be to provide inputs on Shariah matters and help FICE comply with Shariah principles. Adab Solutions hopes to not only ensure high quality of exchange services but also support the inclusion of Muslim crypto enthusiasts and traders into the space.
Russian Region Issues Its Amurcoin
Amur Oblast, a region located in Russia’s Far East, has emitted 1 million of its own tokens called Amurcoins. The cryptos will be used by participants in the Eastern Economic Forum (EEF) scheduled to take place September 11 – 13, 2018 in Vladivostok. EEF has become a major platform for the presentation of new strategies to develop and promote political, economic and cultural links between the Russian Federation and countries from the Asia-Pacific region.
EEF guests will be rewarded with Amurcoins for every stride they make at the venue of the event, Bitnovosti reports. They can use the tokens to purchase and pay for a variety of goods and services, from souvenirs and ice cream, to renting a hotel room. The experiment, supported by local crypto enthusiasts and their friends from Moscow, is intended to help visitors better understand what blockchain is, how cryptocurrencies work, and also present Amur as an innovative, high-tech hub. The Oblast is home to the first Russian digital economy school and is currently building an international blockchain center.
