Alexander Lebedev, the former owner of Russia’s National Standard Bank, is starting a new cryptocurrency project. His decentralized finance (DeFi) startup is planning to introduce a ruble-backed stablecoin on the Ethereum blockchain.

Co-founder Sergey Mendeleev revealed at a conference that a trial version of the coin with minimal features is now available for testing and feedback. The issuance of crypto rubles will be performed by a decentralized smart contract with over-collateralization, following the model of MakerDAO’s DAI algorithmic stablecoin. Notably, one InDeFi token will be strictly equal to one ruble.
