He Traded a Paperclip for a House

How a Russian blogger repeated the famous red paper clip experiment

Ruslan Chistyakov was a blogger from a small Siberian city, who dreamt of a house of his own, and he decided to get it by any means. Or, rather, using exchange. He learnt about a Canadian who had traded a red paperclip for a house and decided to do the same. First, he exchanged his paperclip for a box of pencils, then a power bank, then a karaoke machine… His exchanges were easy, simple and natural. But eventually, the cost of the things traded had to go up. Did it cause more difficulty? Did Ruslan get his dream house?
