A Gibraltar-based electronic payments platform, AdvCash, has come forward to support the Russian money. AdvCash will charge 3% fees for each deposit, and 2.5% plus 50 RUB for every withdrawal. The platform also claims to present faster and cheaper payments as compared to conventional money transfers or a regular bank service.
