The Russian digital currency can be used internationally. This was told to journalists by Olga Skorobogatova, Deputy Head of the Bank of Russia.
Previously, the Central Bank Chairman Elvira Nabiullina assumed that the cryptoruble tests could start before the end of 2021. According to her, the new tool will be convenient and safe in use.
Skorobogatova confirmed that the digital rouble will be a reliable tool. Russians will be able to send tokens both inside our country and abroad. This will only be possible after other countries have released similar tools.
The Deputy Head of the Central Bank noted:
This is a topic when other regulators will also issue their own currencies. Not just one China, but at least several other players.
After the emergence of several digital currencies in the world, with the appropriate regulatory framework, Russian citizens will be able to carry out cross-border operations involving cryptoruble.
In the near future, digital euro and yuan will appear on the market, the official reminded.
It should be noted that in mid-October the Bank of Russia announced its readiness to issue a token secured by the ruble. The regulator immediately announced that it would be the only issuer of the national digital currency.
