Bank of Russia’s governor opposed to cryptocurrencies

According to a previous news item, the Russian Central Bank is formulating plans to implement acid tests on its digital bank by early next year. Russians will use the digital ruble alongside cash and online payments across the country, complementing the two most widely accepted means of exchange.

According to the nation’s largest bank, one of the main advantages that digital currency will have over other payment methods is its reduced transaction fee.

The country’s central bank chief, Elvira Nabiullina, claims usage of CBDCs will eliminate the need for digital assets like Bitcoin. According to her remarks at the Russian state Duma, Nabiullina stated that governments worldwide should stop pushing individuals towards the use of digital assets.
