Why do I need to transfer money using cryptocurrencies? 

There are thousands of banks and money transfer companies in the world. There are cases when it is not possible to use their services: sanctions, lack of infrastructure, strict legislation.

  • Consider the disadvantages of classic bank transfers:
  • control by states, banks, security agencies;
  • documents confirming the identity of the sender and recipient of the transfer are required;
  • long waiting time for international transfers;
  • high commissions;
  • amount limit;
  • the presence of several intermediaries in the form of banks;
  • availability of days off at the bank;
  • the inability to transfer in the absence of a branch or partner of the bank.

With this state of affairs, the translation market needed a backup option, and it was quickly found.

Blockchain technology is ideally suited for the release of digital money cryptocurrencies that users could exchange with each other. The exchange program automatically adds new transactions to the register and passes it on without requiring intermediaries.

Cryptocurrencies easily cross the borders of states and are not subject to the supervision of banks and regulators. But there is a problem of strong fluctuations in exchange rates. For example, bitcoin, which is freely traded, can greatly sink in price.

This problem was solved with the help of special cryptocurrencies, each coin of which is provided with real values (gold, fiat) in a bank account. For example, the USDT cryptocurrency exchange rate is rigidly tied to the US dollar, for this reason, it is convenient to make transfers or store savings with the help of such stablecoins.

Advantages of payments and transfers in cryptocurrency:

  1. Anonymity of transfers;
  2. High transaction speed;
  3. Low commission;
  4. Exclusion of the dollar from the exchange chain;
  5. Exclusion of intermediaries;
  6. The ability to pay for goods directly with cryptocurrency.

The situation with cryptocurrency transfers in Russia

Visa and Mastercard payment systems have suspended operations in Russia. Since then, all transactions on the cards of these systems are not available to Russians. This decision was announced a few days before the actual suspension of work. At the same time, the Russian authorities have imposed restrictions on the transfer and export of currency abroad, as well as the possibility of withdrawing it in the country.

The way out of this situation is cryptocurrencies. This is legal, since the Law on Digital Financial Assets prohibits Russian residents from only accepting cryptocurrency to pay for goods, works or services. There is no ban on transferring cryptocurrencies from a Russian user's wallet to a user's wallet from another country in Russian legislation.

For residents of Russia, the only simple and working way to transfer money abroad is cryptocurrencies.

How to get cryptocurrency

Cryptocurrency for transfer can be obtained using mining or bought.

Mining is the process of adding blocks to the block chain. According to the result of the work of special equipment, you receive a reward for cryptocurrency.

However, experts recommend buying cryptocurrency on spot exchanges. The course will be the most profitable for them and there is no need for special equipment and software.

To purchase, it is enough to simply register on the exchange, pass verification, connect Google 2fa and follow the instructions.

Digital Transaction Technology via Blockchain

Transactions when using cryptocurrencies are carried out via the Internet. At the preliminary stage, the presence of a specified number of coins in the wallet for performing the operation is checked. If the transaction is correct, then:

  • the transfer goes on waiting;
  • transaction information is included in the preliminary block;
  • with high traffic and a large number of transfers in the network, a queue is formed, and processing time increases;
  • first, payments with a high commission are processed, since they are higher in importance;
  • the transfer is confirmed and goes to the new extracted block.

The speed of the transaction depends solely on the miner, whose algorithm is based on the fact that the priority parameter when confirming transactions is the amount of the fee offered by the sender for making the payment.

And the blockchain network commission is a fee that the sender pays for making a payment in cryptocurrency

Examples of transaction fees in different currencies:

  • BTC commission of $ 3.26, from 15 to 60 minutes for confirmation;
  • XLM - $0.004 commission, 4 seconds for confirmation;
  • XRP - $0.00078 commission, 4 seconds to confirm;
  • NANO - commission of $ 0, 0.14 seconds for confirmation;
  • USDT on the Tron blockchain commission is $ 1, 10-20 minutes for confirmation;
  • ADA - the transfer fee was about $0.15, 10-20 minutes for confirmation;

  • Bitcoin Cash - $ 0.0024 commission, 2.5 hours for confirmation;
  • Dash - $ 0.0043 commission, 15 minutes for confirmation.

There is a risk that during the transaction, the price of the transferred currency will fall, and the amount in absolute terms will decrease. Choose either stable coins or currencies that have high transaction speed, good liquidity and low commission.


If the task is to earn money in the future on the growth of the exchange rate, you can use the VTS for transfers. To reduce costs and risks, it is more convenient to transfer money using stablecoins and coins with a stable exchange rate.

If the transfer is carried out through a non-custodial wallet, you also need to have a certain amount of native coins on the wallet additionally to pay the commission.

The most convenient way to transfer is an internal transfer on a cryptocurrency exchange, since the exchange takes an equivalent commission in the asset that is withdrawn, and sometimes internal transfers within the service are generally free.

Transfers using cryptocurrencies are fast, cheap and secure. Mastering the technology will not be difficult for anyone who has at least once transferred money using a banking application or in the office of a credit institution.
