Russia’s Yandex search engine adds cryptocurrencies to its converter –

Yandex, the largest Russian search engine, has updated its currency converter and cryptocurrencies added. The widget now shows the prices of these coins in a range of fiat currencies, with plans to introduce crypto-to-crypto pairs in the future.

Yandex integrates leading cryptocurrencies into its currency converter

Users of Russia’s leading search engine Yandex can view information on over 140 of the most popular cryptocurrencies in addition to data for the national currencies of different countries. The crypto rates have been added to the latest version of its currency converter, the company announced.

The widget, which includes a price chart and a quick conversion tool, sits just above search results, Russian news agency reported, citing Yandex. The software recognizes standard keywords and even slang or imprecise language in the query.

The value of the coins and tokens of interest can be displayed in Russian rubles, US dollars, euros and other fiat currencies. More pairs will be added in the future, as well as the option to view the price of a specific digital asset in a different cryptocurrency.

Yandex sources market data from Coingecko, one of the largest aggregation portals in the crypto space, the report said. According to the Russian search engine’s own statistics Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin, Dogecoin and Solana the most popular cryptos by number of searches in 2022.

Global online platforms support similar features, but access to some of them has been restricted for Russians. As RBC Crypto noted, a feature enabling cryptocurrency price tracking was launched by Twitter in December last year, but the social media platform is blocked in Russia.

A law “On Digital Financial Assets” came into force in Russia in January 2021, but the government has yet to properly regulate transactions involving decentralized cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin. According to officials, this should happen in 2023.

In November 2022, a bill legalizing crypto mining was presented to the Russian parliament. The legislation also aims to regulate the exchange of mined cryptocurrencies on trading platforms abroad or under special legal regulations in Russia.
