The bill on cryptosphere and mining, which is under consideration in the State Duma, states that Russians will be able to use digital currencies as a means of payment.
However, they must perform such operations outside the jurisdiction of the Russian Federation. This was announced at the beginning of the week by Anatoly Aksakov, head of the financial committee in the lower house of parliament.
He also noted that MPs can already on Wednesday, November 2, approve a document that legalizes the mining of cryptocurrency and determines its status.
According to Aksakov, discussions are underway in the State Duma on certain points of the bill. It is quite possible that already this week all differences will be eliminated, and parliamentarians will support the document.
Recall that the New People faction previously submitted a bill on the mining industry to the State Duma for consideration. However, it was rejected due to the lack of a clear mechanism for taxing miners and combating such crypto mining.
Then another draft law was submitted to the State Duma, taking into account the wishes of the government and the Bank of Russia. There are good chances for its approval, Aksakov stressed.
In addition, he added that digital currencies can also be used when paying for parallel imports.
Recently, Deputy Finance Minister Aleksey Moiseev told reporters that our country cannot do without such an instrument in the face of sanctions. The Central Bank was forced to agree with the position of the government.
