The Federation Council is forming a working group to develop further regulation of cryptocurrencies. This was announced at the Finopolis forum by the deputy chairman of the Federation Council Nikolai Zhuravlev.
The group will include representatives of the Ministry of Finance, the Ministry of Economic Development, Rosfinmonitoring, the Ministry of Finance, the tax service, law enforcement agencies, parliament, the central bank, as well as the cryptocurrency industry.
“We have already introduced a ban on their [криптовалюты — прим.ред.] use as a means of payment, as regards the issue of the advisability of a ban on other operations with cryptocurrencies, is a difficult and debatable issue, ”Zhuravlev said.
Earlier, the Federation Council stated that they are analyzing digital currencies in the financial market and intend to “seriously address this issue” in the future.
In November, the State Duma also decided to create an inter-committee working group to discuss mining regulation.
