As the BRICS countries become more critical, reports say Russia is creating particular organizations to mine and move crypto across borders. In particular, the country has said that it wants to make a “special organization.” After that, its creation will use digital assets to do business across foreign borders.
The country’s Central Bank is already working on a law draft that would let crypto be used for foreign trade. On the other hand, this change results from Russia’s rising economic distance from the West because it attacks Ukraine.

BRICS: New Institution to Mine Crypto
Even though Russian officials have been clear about how they feel about cryptocurrency in the country, it is now possible to use it abroad. In particular, the government is working hard to develop ways to use the product for foreign trade.
Now, it’s been said that Russia is creating notable organizations to mine and move cryptocurrency around the world. Also, Elvira Nabiullina, the head of the Bank of Russia, said the same thing when she spoke to the Federal Assembly of Russia.
“We share the same view that cryptocurrency should not be used in the country,” Nabiullina said, according to Finbold. “As for the foreign payments, we assume that this is possible in the form of an experiment,” he said, pointing out that new laws were about to be passed.
Notably, the new agency will mine coins and set up payment plans with foreign organizations. Alexei Guznov, the deputy head of the central bank, also talked about the growing institutions and who could be involved.
“This group will be examined to see what kind it can be. “Right now, there are only talks with the government to figure out what they do, which banks they work with, and how much they can talk to representatives,” Guznov said.
