What arguments did Potanin make? The development of national cryptocurrencies in various states may lead to bitcoin fading into the background. CBDC and tokens regulated by the authorities will allow the full benefits of blockchain, bypassing the risks associated with decentralized cryptocurrencies like bitcoin.

Interestingly, Vladimir Potanin is an investor in the asset tokenization platform Atomyze, which operates as an official operator of the digital asset management information system. Among the businessman’s announced plans are the launch of a real estate tokenization project, as well as the release of an NFT collection together with the Hermitage Museum.
