«Selling for bitcoin at the auction is prohibited and in principle is impossible, we have to specify only in rubles, – says the representative of the auction Elena Novikova. – We are talking about a few ads, where the author, in addition to the fixed amount in rubles, offered exchange for money. These ads were unpublished. We encourage all sellers to be careful and avoid the offers associated with any cryptocurrency».
