Regulating crypto has been the talk of the town for quite a while and it will continue to be that way for a long time to come. If you compare the landscape of crypto now to how it used to be several years ago, it will be clear to see that things have changed quite a bit. Initially, there were no talks about crypto and traders, investors and miners had more freedom.
Now, however, things have been changing at a rapid pace and there have been drastic changes made to the crypto world. Needless to say, the crypto space will be quite different to what people have become used to over the years. That being said, this is not a bad thing at all. As a matter of fact, it would even be fair to say that it is a good thing, as people will be able to make investments without worrying about losing it to malicious hackers.
While frauds, scams and hacks have been quite prevalent ever since crypto has existed, they have become even more of a problem since the past few years. There were loads and loads of cases where people ended up losing a significant amount of money due to getting defrauded or hacked. Because of this, the crypto community had been demanding for a change that made everything better and allowed people to invest with freedom.
Years went by and there was not action taken, but now, things have been changing. One of the most noticeable changes that people have experienced in the crypto world are the regulations being imposed by a large number of governments. Despite the endless demands for change, a large number of people have not taken kindly to governments regulating their crypto. They believe that it will complicate things too much and make trading more difficult.
However, there is also a group of people that believes regulating crypto is the only way to move forward. This is because it will significantly minimize hacks and frauds that have been plaguing the crypto world for many years. The government of Russia, in particular, has been quite active when it comes to safeguarding its crypto investors. Like most countries, Russia also has a large number of crypto enthusiasts and it only makes sense to ensure their investments remain protected.
It is a significant reason why financial authorities in Russia are going above and beyond to make sure people can invest without any kind of fear. Sure, there are tighter regulations, but its implementation may take some time. That being said, it would be fair to say that the Russian crypto scene is heading in the right direction.
