Russia is developing legislation to create a national cryptocurrency exchange.

A draft amendment bill being developed by Russian MPs would allow the nation to establish a national cryptocurrency exchange. A source close to the State Duma, the lower chamber of the Russian parliament, said that lawmakers and market participants met in mid-November to discuss what legal changes would be necessary to permit the establishment of a national exchange for cryptocurrencies. This information was later confirmed by a participant in the meetings. The Russian government and central bank will be the first to see the modifications.

The legislators want a draft document that takes into account the viewpoints of the market actors before submitting it to the higher authorities, according to a report by the Russian media site Vedomosti. Russia aims to put cryptocurrency under state control with this strategy.

"It makes no sense to assert that cryptocurrencies do not exist, but the problem is that it circulates in a significant flow outside of state regulation," said Sergei Altukhov, a member of the Committee on Economic Policy. Althukov continued, saying that it was necessary to establish prerequisites for the legalization of cryptocurrencies in the nation and "control the rules of the game."

For months, the Russian government has been preparing and setting up legal requirements for transnational cryptocurrency transactions. However, the Russian Federation's own government has advocated for the digital ruble above personal cryptocurrencies.

The new proposed framework will regulate how digital assets are used in Russia through the application of laws. According to reports from last month, there are street-level direct trades of cryptocurrency for fiat currency in Russia due to a lack of cash.

It turns out that stablecoins continue to be a viable alternative to money for many despite the EU's efforts to restrict Russian access to cryptocurrencies. Russians are exhibiting interest in the new financial instrument, and exchange offices that allow for the use of digital assets have started to sprout on the streets of Russian cities.

Due to restrictions on bank withdrawals, people have turned to different techniques to meet demand.
