Entrepreneur and co-owner of the coffee shop Headquarters Timofei Kulikov said that the Russian legislation does not ban the purchase of Bitcoins by individuals. If you want to pay for an order in cryptocurrency, you should  transfer a sum to a virtual wallet. After that, the operating system will transfer Bitcoins paid amount in rubles.


The Sberbank’s press service said that the coffee shop Headquarters of Timofei Kulikov has no relation to  Sberbank.
