I invite you to visit the pages of our summer edition of “Korpus Prava.Analytics”. This issue is dedicated to cryptocurrency and electronic payment instruments.
We live at the time of rapid development of modern information technologies and financial markets, which have changed the way economies and financial systems function and the way businesses work. There have been several new and innovative products which have led to developments in electronic commerce and electronic banking. As a result of these developments, we have faced a new kind of payment instrument, namely electronic money, which is covered in our issue by our leading lawyer Anna Senchenko.
Our lawyer Roman Moskovskikh will elaborate on the topic of electronic money and analyze the legal nature of cryptocurrency in the modern world. Why has cryptocurrency become so popular? What fundamental legal principles lie at the basis of it? Cryptocurrency is treated differently in each country, and our expert will outline the situation in Russia.
