What else did Moiseyev add? He also noted that there are no direct bans on cross-border crypto payments, but the Ministry of Finance would like to take control of this issue. The Deputy Minister hopes that already in this session there will be some elements of regulation of the industry.

The Central Bank confirmed its participation in discussions on the legalization of cross-border settlements. At the same time, the Central Bank opposes the approval of crypto exchanges and payments in cryptocurrency within Russia.

Previously, Moiseyev reported that the Ministry of Finance and the Central Bank rethought their approach to regulating the crypto market. However, he said, the regulators still have differences of opinion.
