  • 09:07 Russian Central Bank Evaluates Risks And Benefits Of CBDC

    The Central Bank of Russia published a report on benefits and deficiencies of central bank digital currencies (CBDC).

    "From the users' point of view, CBDC might have numerous characteristics and become an alternative both to cash money and deposits," the report states.
    Among the potential benefits, the Central Bank pointed out lower transaction costs and mentioned that such cryptocurrency may become a less risky and highly liquid asset available to a broad public.

  • 08:02 Russia Is Realizing It Has No Clue How To Regulate Cryptocurrency

    Earlier this week, Russia's Deputy Finance Minister Alexey Moiseev shared his thoughts on the country's developing cryptocurrency laws. Speaking on the sidelines at the Economic Forum in Yalta, the Minister says the main aim of the proposed "digital assets" law is to legalize ICOs.
    He added that he expects the bill to be reviewed by the Duma in May.
    Experts also warn that restrictions on buying digital assets by non-accredited investors will lead to enforcement issues. Indeed, the main building blocks of cryptocurrency are that they're borderless, apolitical and decentralized.
    Therefore, Russian lawmakers are slowly finding out just how impossible it is to regulate something that is un-regulatable by design.
