What other statements have been made? According to Popov, the bank is closely following the development of new technologies, including blockchain. He also recalled that in spring Sber received a cryptocurrency license from the Bank of Russia and was included in the register of information system operators, which can carry out the issuance of DFAs.

In early June, Tinkoff Business and Lighthouse, a fintech company, developed a platform to automate digital financial assets (DFAs) transactions, which would be able to operate on the basis of nominal accounts.

Later, the State Duma passed in the first reading a bill that bans payments for goods and services with DFAs. The document aims to prevent the use of digital assets as a means of payment.
