Russian Central Bank Begins Consultations on NFTs

Share This Post

As NFTs become more popular around the world, different governments are paying more attention to them, whether to better regulate or adopt them. One of these, apparently, is the Russian government as its central bank is reportedly opening public consultations for the adoption of digital financial assets (DFA) and blockchain technology. 

As per reports, these digital financial assets include tokenised instruments, NFTs, and stablecoins. The report also highlights how other countries such as the United States have already handled digital asset regulation, with some regulating them using existing laws and others creating new ones for them.

For now, the central bank is trying to decide between regulating DFAs using existing regulations and creating new ones and this is what the public consultations will focus on. In that vein, 20 questions have been prepared for the consultations, including whether smart contracts should be standardized and whether the list of tokenizable assets needs to be expanded. 

Naturally, amidst all of these are the concerns that these assets, including crypto and NFTs, could be used for illegal purposes. 

The Bank of Russia supports the further development of digital technologies and private innovation projects, including those using distributed ledger technologies. At the same time, the use of innovative technologies to create digital assets should not create uncontrollable risks for consumers of financial services, financial stability, cybersecurity, and also lead to violations of [Anti-Money Laundering/Combating the Financing of Terrorism] requirements,” a statement says.
