To clarify I researched for the company I applied to/got the offer from and the position they offered me is reported to have monthly salary of 8-9k. In the industry it is known that my current company underpays because they are less well-known/considered tier 2.

On one hand I don't want to ruin the opportunity by quoting sth too high, but on the other hand I don't want to put myself in a situation when after joining I'd find out that people in the same position doing the same job are being paid higher
