Russian Prime Minister: Many countries are already on the road to crypto regulation, and Russia needs to be prepared

During the talks between Russian Prime Minister Medvedev and Rosneft Chairman Sergei Gorkov, in response to the fact that the company may seek to introduce blockchain technology-driven cryptocurrencies into its business operations, Medvedev said that it is best to regulate it nationwide It is necessary to prepare for the use of these so-called tokens. Many countries are already on this path, so only the pros and cons need to be weighed.

In May 2019, Medvedev had said that the Russian government should seek a more flexible and looser legal framework for cryptocurrencies, and since October has also supervised the progress of the new bill.
