In line with a recent news by native reporting media ‘Interfax’, a representative of the Russian MinFin [Ministry of Finance] recently said that the ministry is considering permitting cryptocurrency trading.
According to the report, the Deputy Minister of Finance named ‘Alexei Moiseyev’ told the journalists earlier on 21st June that, while MinFin had reached no final judgment, cryptocurrency trading might be allowed within the upcoming bill on the circulation of ‘cryptocurrencies‘ within the ‘Russia‘.
A bill prohibiting the employment of cryptocurrency assets as a means of payment within Russia was passed earlier in the month of May, last year.
The head of the Duma Financial Market Committee named ‘Anatoly Aksakov’, referred to the pending call as a compromise and acknowledged that the FATF [Financial Action Task Force] recommended that Russia adopt a bill managing the circulation of crypto assets by the end of this year.
As ‘reported‘ earlier the week, the State Duma, Russia’s parliament, expects to adopt the country’s major bill on cryptocurrencies “On Digital Financial Assets” [DFA] within the upcoming two weeks.
At the time, Moiseev revealed that MinFin has conjointly approved separate legislation for ICOs [Initial Coin Offerings], which is expected to be a part of the Russia’s law on crowdfunding.
Also earlier this week, another news ‘broke-out‘ that the head of the Bank of Russia aforesaid that while they’re exploring the possibilities of launching a CBDC [Central Bank Digital Currency], it’s not planned for the mere future.
