We take into account factors such as contribution to the development of the industry, activity in the market, as well as the results that have been achieved over the past twelve months.
Elvira Nabiullina, Head of the Central Bank of Russia
Of course, the head of the Central Bank of Russia, Elvira Nabiullina, has a huge impact on the development of the crypto industry in the country. Almost constantly, the official speaks out against the legalization of cryptocurrencies, but does not exclude the creation of her own CBDC in the form of a digital ruble, which can become an alternative to fiat money. Most recently, Elvira Nabiullina expressed concern about the “high level of public involvement in the cryptocurrency sector” and sees “the need to reduce this involvement.” Also, the head of the Central Bank is sure that the legalization of cryptocurrencies will not help filling the treasury in any way, but, on the contrary, will contribute to tax evasion. However, now the regulator is clearly not up to cryptocurrency processes. The attention of the Central Bank is focused on the development and implementation of anti-crisis measures that have a negative impact on the Russian economy due to the situation in Ukraine.
