The digital ruble will not be used for loans and deposits

The national digital currency of Russia will not be used to issue loans to individuals and legal entities

The token will not be used to launch deposit programs on the blockchain. The information was confirmed by the deputy head of the Central Bank Alexey Zabotkin, speaking in the State Duma.

Earlier, we already wrote that a mechanism has been developed for using the crypto-ruble in the domestic market. There are still several unresolved issues.

For example, it is necessary to study and eliminate the problem of limiting payments, adopted among the participants of the Fast Payments System. If all problems are resolved, a pilot project for the implementation of the crypto-ruble will start in 2021.
