Deputy head of Sberbank Anatoly Popov said that the banking sector of the Russian Federation can already work with cryptocurrencies, since the appropriate infrastructure has been created. He also noted that the mining industry is a necessary sector in the field of high technology. It employs highly qualified specialists. Anatoly Popov said that Sberbank supports the position of the Russian government on the regulation of cryptocurrencies in the country. A legal framework will allow investors to include cryptocurrencies in their portfolios along with securities such as stocks and bonds. It is impossible to ban cryptocurrencies, as the Central Bank previously proposed. At the same time, there is concern about the participation in operations in the cryptocurrency market of investors who do not have the necessary qualifications. Earlier, the Finance Ministry proposed to impose restrictions on cryptocurrency transactions for unqualified investors. The maximum investment amount should be no more than 50 thousand rubles for them.
