Bitcoin took second place in the contest for «word of the year» in Russia

The expert Council at the Center for creative development of Russian language, which includes famous writers, philologists, linguists, journalists, culture experts and philosophers, chose the key word 2017 — «renovation».

The word «bitcoin» came in second place, and third went to «HYIP». This was reported on the website of the «Year of literature». Next in the top 10 included the word «toxic», «battle», «dope», «cryptocurrency», «fake», «bezviz» and «harassment/harassment». Thus, the Russian language has almost learned to do without Russian words. Oddly enough, the word «blockchain» remained outside of the list.

In addition, the expert Council made the top 15 of the author’s neologisms, or protologisms. The three leaders «domohani», «GOP politics», and «znamenityj».

The action to choosing words of the year in different countries of the world. In Russia the competition is held since 2007 at the initiative of Mikhail Epstein.
