“We want the work on registration of the platform for the issue of DFA to be completed no later than the first half of September. So far, we only plan to issue and turnover of the bank’s own DFA, but have already begun to create functionality for the issue of CFA by third parties and expect that our clients will be able to use this opportunity later this year.”
The top executives added that Sberbank and the Bank of Russia are discussing the requirements that the new product has to cover:
“Based on the results of the last check of the platform, we received minor comments, which we eliminated, and sent an updated petition to the Bank of Russia.”
Sber also aimed for approval from the nation’s central bank to create new crypto through a blockchain platform but back then Popov said that the main goal is to launch the digital asset in the spring of 2021:

If the Central Bank of the Russian Federation approves the application, the bank could leverage the blockchain platform and create its own cryptocurrency.
