A similar payment system will be a successful solution for the financial center of Europe. Also, its integration into the global financial system. We should not leave this space to China, Russia, the United States or any private supplier.
Earlier, the German government approved a strategy for blockchain. This places the existence of cryptocurrencies. Such as Libra stablecoin from Facebook on the territory of the country. Of course, the ability to issue currency is a key element of state sovereignty. This task cannot simply rest assured to private companies.

I plan to present new legislation in this area,” said the Vice President of the European Commission. Earlier, the organization announced the launch of an investigation into Libra by Facebook.

New way to determine official Bitcoin course in Russia
The new system will make it possible to introduce the taxation of cryptocurrencies and simplify the process of legal proceedings with their participation. Several exchanges request Bitcoin within 30 seconds. After that, this is how experts calculate the cross-rate to the dollar and ruble. Similarly, the cost of digital money.
Currently, Russia can not regulate cryptocurrencies in any way in Russia. Also, it cannot decide on the status of digital money in the country. The Central Bank advocates a complete ban on new types of assets. Earlier, the first deputy chairman of the financial regulator called cryptocurrencies “a high-tech financial pyramid”.
