Sberbank has suspended work on projects related to cryptocurrency due to the negative attitude of the Bank of Russia to virtual assets.
This was stated at a press conference by the vice-president of the bank, Andrey Shemetov, as reports TASS.
According to him, Sberbank was awaiting relevant legislation that would allow commercial transactions with cryptocurrency. Since the financial regulator is currently negative about this, then decided to pause cryptocurrency plans.
Andrey Shemetov did not specify exactly what plans were in question. IN during the boom period of 2017, the Swiss division of the bank planned to offer customers to open crypto accounts.
Recently, Sberbank also sent a client a request for data on income from cryptocurrencies, used mining equipment and wallet address..
Earlier, we also reported that the State Duma postponed consideration of the bill on the CFA due to FATF requirements.
