The Kremlin has stated that the number of cryptocurrency transactions in Russia has tripled in 2023, with transfer volumes doubling. This information was revealed by Yuri Chikhanchin, the head of Rosfinmonitoring, a Kremlin-run agency that fights money laundering and terrorism funding. Chikhanchin also mentioned that Russians are now sending and receiving more crypto than ever before, with the volume of transactions almost doubling this year. He emphasized the need for the government to expedite the long-awaited crypto regulation, which has been delayed due to a disagreement between the anti-crypto Central Bank and the more progressive Ministry of Finance. Chikhanchin also explained the tracking methods used by Russia, including the use of the Transparent Blockchain tool, which allows banks to conduct crypto compliance and identify senders and recipients of over 30 cryptocurrencies. Additionally, the agency is collaborating with domestic partners to create a unified database of gray addresses associated with suspected money launderers and criminals.
