Technical Analysis of ETH/USD for December 3, 2020

Crypto Industry News:

Senior Bank of Russia officials spoke out against the issue of private stablecoins linked to the Russian ruble.

Sergei Shvetsov, Russia's first deputy chairman of the central bank, said the bank intends to ban private companies from offering stablecoins backed by the domestic fiat currency.

Russian cryptocurrency developers will only be able to use the digital ruble of the Bank of Russia, Shvetsov said. According to a report by the local news agency, Prime said this approach is in line with the "uniqueness of means of payment philosophy".

Shvetsov referred to the Chinese digital Yuan laws that criminalize the issuance of Yuan-backed stablecoins by third parties:

"China has imposed a blanket ban on any Yuan-linked stablecoin. I think we are not far from that. The bank will stop anything that is positioned as tender. We assume that the ruble is the currency of the Russian Federation," he says.

Olga Skorobogatova, another first vice president of the Bank of Russia, noted the technical difficulties associated with the issuance of the digital ruble:

"So far, no regulator has figured out how, for example, to restore the rubles in case of losing a smartphone, but precisely because [...] technologies are developing, we ourselves understand that this problem can be solved in a second stage. [...] Technologically, this problem will be had to be resolved, "she said.

The Bank of Russia officially released its plan for the digital ruble in October 2020. According to the bank, the digital ruble should become an additional form of money alongside cash.
