Russian Government Consider Partial Suspension on Crypto Payment Ban as Bitcoin Attempts to Jump Initial Hurdle at $40,000
Pavel Krasheninnikov is the chairman of the Russian Duma’s Committee on State Building and Legislation. He indicated that the government is allowing for amendment on civil law to allow crypto payments as a “contractual medium.” Because of this, lawmakers are reportedly weighing a partial reversal of the country’s ban on cryptocurrency payments. Krasheninnikov indicated that cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin are not yet a legal payment method in Russia. The proposed amendments would allow crypto payments in Russia under contractual law. That is the payments would be only possible with the consent of all involved parties: According to the chairman :
“We believe that it is necessary to make amendments to the Civil Code, the initiative is currently undergoing a necessary approval procedure. Currently, there is an understanding that digital currency is not legal as payment but this payment method, quite possibly, can be contractual.”
Meanwhile, the BTC price has broken above the $40,000 high. However, the bullish momentum is yet to be sustained above the recent high. It may portend negatively if the current bullish momentum is repelled. The Fibonacci tool analysis is held as price rebounded above the 2.0 Fibonacci extension level. Bitcoin bulls have an uphill task as the king coin is battling to rise in the bearish trend zone.
