According to Olga Sorokina, General Director for Business Development of "VSK Insurance House", the appearance of the digital ruble will reduce commission costs and increase "the competitiveness of the entire economy".
Sorokina notes that with the introduction of digital currency into the domestic economy, end consumers will receive additional benefits.
“The chain of intermediaries from customer to supplier can change, which will speed up transactions and provide an additional benefit for the customer,” she said..
The insurance giant believes that the digital version of the ruble can reduce transaction costs arising from mutual settlements with partners.
“Centralization and control of the regulator will ensure the safety of operations for the client,” says Sorokina.
However, Sorokina's opinion is not shared both in the banking sector and in the blockchain industry. Earlier, for example, the editorial staff of BeInCrypto reported that, according to Vladislav Martynov, a member of the supervisory board of the Russian Association of Cryptocurrencies and Blockchain (RACIB), centralization of power around the emission and storage of the digital ruble would throw the country's economy back into the Soviet era..

According to one of the representatives of the banks, there is still no clear understanding of what the digital ruble will be. Most bank representatives "don't take seriously" the digital ruble as a third form of national currency.
