Who was blacklisted? The companies were selected based on an analysis of risks and dangers. For example, Advertising Platform, Crypto Fusion, Tanzanite, Evolution Mining, EvoHash, and Jasper Invest all showed signs of a Ponzi scheme. As for GitexCapital and StreamForex, they are accused of illegal participation in the securities market. One of the criteria for getting on the list was the promise of high rates of return offered by such companies.

The Bank of Russia notes that measures will be taken to block the websites of all the organizations on the blacklist in order to prevent illegal financial activities. Cooperation with law enforcement agencies and foreign regulators will also be undertaken to apply other possible measures.
