The manager of the investment department of ICB Fund Aaron Chomsky spoke about the demand for settlements in digital currency in the Russian Federation.
“In general, the demand for settlements in digital currency is currently very small. Moreover, the point is not only in a weak complex of infrastructure facilities, which is still developing evenly, but also in the highest volatility of the exchange rate. Payment in stablecoins makes more sense, but their issuers can simply freeze funds on the addresses of Russian users, ”he said in a conversation with Life.ru.
According to the expert, for now, stakes are being placed on the creation of an analogue of the digital ruble, the price of which will be pegged to the real Russian currency.
“The calculations will be performed within their own closed system compared to other cryptocurrencies,” Chomsky added.
Before that, as the FBA “Economy Now” reported, a specialist in the field of cryptographic currencies and mining, Evgeny Kaminsky, spoke about the prospects of the market.
