Russian Digital Currency
June 20, 2017 02:48


The Bank of Russia started to work on creation of a national digital currency. This was told by the deputy chairman of the Central Bank, Olga Skorobogatova.

"We will get to the virtual national currency and we have already started working on it," she said at St. Petersburg International Economic Forum, which takes place in the Northern capital from June 1 to 3. According to her, the interest in such financial instruments is growing in the world that is safe for the state and the citizens.

"It seems to me that this topic will be developed very actively during next two or three years, and we are studying all the pros and cons of this topic," Skorobogatova said. The digital currency created in Russia will give an opportunity to use money resources at the level of new technologies, she added. On May 25, the Central Bank offered to classify crypto-currencies as digital goods. Previously, the Central Bank said that in Russia it had been premature to talk about legalizing the turnover of electronic currencies, including bitcoins.
