Russian President Vladimir Putin signed the law “On digital financial assets”, which defines bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies and prohibits their use in the country as a means of payment. The corresponding document was published on the official Internet portal of legal information, the rules will come into force on January 1, 2021.

Recall that the Bank of Russia and Rosfinmonitoring are opponents of using cryptocurrency as a payment instrument. They were able to achieve amendments to the draft law on the so-called digital assets.

The law was adopted by the State Duma in the third reading on July 22. According to the document, in the country, it will be possible to legally buy, sell, and make other transactions with cryptocurrency. Also, the law contains a reference to separate documents that will regulate mining, the organization of the issuance and circulation of digital currency.
