The updated text of the draft law on the digital ruble was submitted to the departments and market participants for final approval before the second reading. This is reported by Kommersant, which has read the text of the document.

In the new version, instead of digital wallets, digital accounts are offered for storing a financial instrument. Foreign banks will also be able to open them.

In addition, the Central Bank was relieved of responsibility for the safety of the national digital currency, and banks were obliged to prevent fraudulent attacks on it.

According to one of the authors of the bill, Anatoly Aksakov, head of the State Duma Finance Committee, the document should be adopted in the second reading within ten days, and finally approved before the end of the parliamentary session.

Recall that on June 20, the State Duma of the Russian Federation in the second reading adopted amendments to the Civil Code on transactions with the digital ruble, as well as the rules for the inheritance of electronic money.

The pilot launch of the CBDC, previously scheduled for April 1, did not take place due to the lack of a regulatory framework – the bill associated with the instrument passed only the first reading.
