    Russian court overturns Binance ban

    The ruling nullifies the September blacklisting of the cryptocurrency exchange by Russian telecom regulator Roskomnadzor

    Roskomnadzor banned Binance’s domain in late September for distributing prohibited information—specifically, instructions about acquiring digital currencies such as Bitcoin (BTC). This may be surprising to some, but Russians are still very much wary of cryptocurrencies. According to a report released at the time, only one in 10 locals would consider investing in digital assets.
