Russian Central Bank Supporting On Potential Ban On Crypto Payments
Recently, The Central Bank of Russia has backed on a potential ban to support cryptocurrency payments. Russia’s central bank has the view that “private cryptocurrencies cannot be equated with fiat money and cannot be legal tender.”
In October, Russian internet ombudsman’s bitcoin mining company planned on opening a new facility and corner 20% of the international market. Russian Mining Company (RMC) is going to repurpose a metal factory in the country’s northern province of Karelia. The ex Rusal facility was closed due to US sanctions in 2018. It could soon host a Bitcoin mining farm so large that it could account for one-fifth of global output.
