Before we go any further though, it’s worth saying that we aren’t financial investors and this isn’t financial advice. Please do your own research before putting your money in a cryptocurrency and always remember to trade safe!
The initial bill specifies that trading in digital currency would be allowed in the nation but the edited document will allegedly prevent almost everything about cryptocurrency.
On top of this, the official has said that the upcoming law will be prohibiting the circulation of cryptocurrency on a very strict level.
Guznov has further said:
“In terms of the functioning of the financial system and consumer protection system, legalization of the issuance and facilitating the circulation of cryptocurrencies is an unjustified risk. As such, the bill explicitly prohibits emission and organization of cryptocurrency circulation, introducing legal liability for violating these rules.”
