Russian entrepreneur Dmitry Troitsky is planning on creating a line of vodka named after some of the most popular cryptos. Troitsky has filed for trademark patents in order to develop three distinct vodka brands called “Bitcoin, Ethereum, and Ethereum Classic.”
Even though Troitsky understands that Russia has not been very favorable towards cryptocurrencies just yet, he believes the public perception is different. Troitsky explains to the Russian news site Life.ru that these names will likely bring his Vodka line attention.
“I wanted to use the names of cryptocurrencies when issuing my goods in the 33rd class of the international classification of goods and services (alcoholic beverages, except beer), and these three names are the most top-notch,” Troitsky tells the publication.
Last January news.Bitcoin.com reported on the crypto-proponent and South Florida Distillery owner, Avi Aisenberg, creating an ‘EthereRum’ product. The rum is distilled using heat from bitcoin miners instead of wasting it. Which is awesome.
Troitsky’s vodka line will be more of a novel concept or gift product, the creator details but with enough push in Russia, he believes the beverages could eventually obtain commercial success.
“Try to imagine the situation at the table, and you will understand that the Bitcoin vodka is rather a joke of comic quality,” Troitsky details. “However, with a good amount of legal support and sufficient resources, it will be possible to achieve commercial success.”
