Russian businessman Vyacheslav Semenchuk announces a kosher cryptocurrency Bitcoen (in tune with "coen" - the name of the clergy in Judaism), which is designed to simplify the calculations within the Jewish community. The initiative of the businessman has already been supported by the chief rabbinate of Russia.

The project plans to produce on its own blockchain 100 million tokens Bitcoen $1. The currency will be released to the market gradually, and 10% from each edition will come in a special Fund, which will transfer cryptocurrency to the Jewish community.

Semenchuk also adds that tokens will be accepted at some shops and restaurants, not just kosher. Thus, he explained the possible interest for non-kosher stores in support of the cryptocurrency:

Want a new audience in the form of effective Jews – accept cryptocurrency Bitcoen.
