Recent crypto updates are coming from Russia. The country plans to put a ban on crypto payments. As per a report in Izvestia, the Central Bank of Russia might impose this ban in the coming days. As of now, there is no punishment on trading Bitcoin and other cryptos in Russia.
Russian Regulators plan this ban to curb the crypto-related crimes in the country. However, there is no official announcement yet. However, Lawyers disagree with this approach. They believe that the ban might hinder Russia’s Economic growth. Antonina Levashenko, head of the Russia-OECD Center for RANEPA, has warned that the bill could foster the development of a gray market.
