At the same time, the head of the Central Bank of the Russian Federation noted that the decision on the issue of the digital ruble has not yet been finally taken.

Lack of a guarantor

Nabiullina also touched upon the topic of bitcoin. The head of the Central Bank of the Russian Federation once again pointed out that with the help of bitcoin “you can carry out various illegal operations easily.” In addition, “no one is responsible for it [bitcoin],” since the cryptocurrency “has no responsible person,” the head of the regulator emphasized..

“It’s unclear who is responsible for bitcoin – the system,” said Nabiullina.

However, the director of the Banking Institute of the Higher School of Economics (HSE) Vasily Solodkov believes that cryptocurrency is in any case much ahead of government developments.

According to Solodkov, the digital version of the domestic currency will not have such functions as anonymity, cross-border, and finiteness. Director of the HSE Banking Institute believes that the main advantage of bitcoin is the ability to “bypass various restrictions”.

The digital ruble, in his opinion, is unlikely to be able to offer the same level of freedom..
