Digital Finance: New Paths of Development
6 September 2022
The global geopolitical changes are shaping a new economic agenda for decades to come. The development of the digital economy, one of the pillars of technological sovereignty, is already playing a key role in this process. Digital finance is a driving force and an indispensable component of cross-border and domestic processes, feeding into all economic flows. The momentum of digital finance is already being felt strongly in the economies of Eurasia and the east as a whole. New laws to regulate digital assets and digital currencies are being rapidly adopted, major projects for the construction of digital infrastructure are being developed, increased attention is being paid to new settlement, payment and investment tools, digital Islamic finance is being actively rolled out, and traditional financial and currency markets are beginning to embrace elements of the world of digital currencies. The creation of a long-term, advanced digital finance architecture requires regulators, businesses and citizens to work in several areas concurrently, including the development of the necessary financial and resource infrastructure, the training of IT personnel, changes to the education system, and the creation of modern and flexible legislation. The growth of decentralized finance around the world is outpacing the relevant legislation. With a variety of developments underway in decentralized finance, from mining and NFTs to decentralized exchanges (DEXs) and decentralized autonomous organizations (DAOs), regulation and the advancement of digital finances in Russia are still focused on digital financial assets and digital currencies and discussions around the potential of Russian stablecoins. Despite this, the Bank of Russia added the first company, Atomyze, to a new register of operators of digital financial assets in early February 2022. Two more, Sber and Lighthouse (Transmashholding), have since been added and plans to create several more operators have been announced. What is the business model of these operators? What is the potential for development in digital finance in Russia and the Far East in particular? How is the current international situation changing the course of the domestic digital finance market? What do industry players want from regulators? What growth path will the Russian digital financial sector take?
