Sazonov stressed :

It is of fundamental importance for us to take into account the opinion of not only the legislators, but also the expert community. We are talking about all the proposals of the government in the field of regulation of relations in the field of cryptocurrency and blockchain. By the end of the year, the State Duma plans to review and adopt nine laws in this area.
