Crypto Industry News:
Russia has passed a major law related to cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin today.
The State Duma – Russia’s legislative body – passed a law entitled “On Digital Financial Assets” in the last third reading, reports local news agency Regnum. After initiating the bill in 2018, Russian authorities finally agreed to legal status for cryptocurrencies in preparation for the implementation of the first major part of the industry regulations.
According to a recent Duma decision, the DFA law is expected to be officially adopted in Russia on January 1, 2021. The law provides a legal definition of digital assets and legitimates cryptocurrency trading in Russia. However, it prohibits the use of cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin as a payment method.
