According to the Chairman of the Duma Committee on financial market Anatoly Aksakov, criptural may appear in Russia in two to three years. He said this to RIA Novosti on the sidelines of the conference about the plans of the Committee for the spring session.

Despite the conservative attitude of the Central Bank of the Russian Federation to the idea of national cryptocurrencies, Aksakov continues to believe that this will inevitably occur with the increased use of blockchain technology.

“Criptural is the ruble, provided that is associated with the emission of the ruble, and he just used blockchain. The wider will use the blockchain in our financial turnover, not only in financial but also in economic turnover, the greater the likelihood of cryptorama. I think it’s a matter of two to three years”, — said the head of the Duma Committee.

Aksakov sees scriptural as secured by real assets digital currency, which is no different from piatogo rubles, except what is drawn on the blockchain. According to him, “regulatory sandbox” of the Central Bank is now being tested for several projects in asset-backed cryptocurrencies.

The idea of national cryptocurrencies in Russia for the first time in September 2017 was announced by the then head of the Ministry of communications Nikolay Nikiforov. Doubts about the advisability of such a step was expressed by the head of Sberbank German Gref, Chairman of the management Board of VTB24 Mikhail Zadornov and Deputy Prime Minister Arkady Dvorkovich. Against the release of cryptorama was made by the Ministry of Finance of the Russian Federation.
