Russia Developing Cryptocurrency To Evade Sanctions

Russian officials are developing a cryptocurrency intended to help the country evade international financial sanctions, the Financial Times reported on Tuesday.

Russian President Vladimir Putin has commissioned government agencies to work on a “cryptorouble,” the FT reported, citing Moscow officials.

The cryptocurrency would be another way to complete financial transactions in roubles, Russia’s currency, while evading sanctions that limit the country’s financing options.
