“Now it is necessary by all means to solve the problem of attracting external financing and the issue of sanctions, he said. – If real assets of Russian big business will tokenservice and posted on some digital platforms, definitely the government will want to control. So, you will need to secure it legislatively”.

According to the head of group on rendering of legal services for technology projects Deloitte in the CIS Artem Tolkachev, the current initiative is not viable, because its proponents have nothing to do with the drafting of legislation at the state level.

“Now the position of all departments are consolidated, he explains. – Found balance, and any third-party innovations will be perceived as negative. I think the document has much of a chance to move on.”
