In a recent interview, Anatoly Aksakov, Chairman of the State Duma Financial Market Committee, revealed that Russia is considering the legalization of cross-border transactions with cryptocurrencies by the second half of 2024. Aksakov emphasized the importance of regulating Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies in international payments and mentioned plans to issue comprehensive crypto regulations in 2024. The Russian government aims to discuss and potentially pass the law in March or April 2024, taking into account the interests of major players in the country’s cryptocurrency market, including those involved in mining and circulation, who are reportedly ready to comply with regulations and pay taxes.
