Situation with DFAs in Russia. In August, Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin announced the need to implement DFAs, as they can guarantee uninterrupted payment for exports and imports.

At the moment, Sberbank, Atomyze, and Lighthouse are the registered operators for issuing DFAs in Russia. Moscow Exchange also announced the release of a DFA-based product by the end of the year.

Later, Atomyze CEO Ekaterina Frolovicheva said that DFAs, unlike cryptocurrencies, have real financial security.
