The concept of legislative regulation of the mechanisms for organizing the circulation of digital currencies

The government has determined the future of digital currencies in Russia. The turnover of such financial assets will be regulated by the state with strict obligations for all participants in the professional market and an emphasis on protecting the rights of ordinary investors.

The purpose of the regulation is to integrate the mechanism for the circulation of digital currencies into the financial system and ensure control over cash flows in the circuit of credit institutions.

Protection of the rights of citizens, in addition to dividing investors into qualified and unqualified, will be ensured through licensing requirements for cryptocurrency platforms. Those, in turn, will be required to have financial airbags in terms of liquidity and capital adequacy.
