Thailand May Offer Crypto Payments To Russian Tourists

Due to financial sanctions on Russia by the United States and other countries after Russia and Ukraine war digital transactions have become very difficult for Russians in other countries.

Now according to reports, Thailand authorities might present digital asset payment options to Russian tourists who cannot facilitate digital transactions.

Due to Putin’s invasion of Ukraine, Russia’s citizens were slammed with severe restrictions from numerous countries, companies, and businesses. Now the Phuket Tourist Association and the Bank of Thailand may introduce cryptocurrency payments to Russian tourists in Thailand.

Thailand Offered Help To Russians

Due to Russia and Ukraine war, many countries declared economic war on the world’s largest country to isolate Russia from the global financial world. Due to these economic sanctions, Russian banks are being expelled from the SWIFT payment system. On the other side, major companies like Mastercard, Visa, and even PayPal announced they will stop serving Russian clients.
