Supreme court of the Russian Federation recognizes tokens as assets

According to, the Supreme Court of the Russian Federation has recognized tokens as assets like money and property. The court clarified that "digital rights" could be used for bribery, just like regular fiat money, property, and other assets. "Digital rights" is the only legal description of cryptocurrency in current Russian law. The court stated that if the corruption case under investigation involves the transfer of "digital copyright", the value of "digital copyright" must be assessed by hired experts, and the time to transfer these assets to the e-wallet will be considered the exact time of bribery .
