What does Yakubovsky say? The deputy is convinced that effective and clear regulation of the sphere of digital assets will allow Russia to open access to the global financial market. Yakubovsky noted:

“The more effective the national legislation being formed in this [cryptocurrency] sphere will be, the more effective it will work. We are currently working on solving this problem. I am sure it can open Russia access to the financial market, which they are now trying to close. In addition, the competent development of digital financial assets will minimize the damage from sanctions against the country.”

What are the prospects for mining? According to Yakubovsky, domestic and industrial mining should become separate types of economic activity. To this end, he considers it necessary to simplify the process of registration, submission of reporting documentation, and reduction of tax payments.
