Major Russian Bank Looks To Pilot Crypto Transactions In Switzerland

Major Russian state-owned bank Gazprombank will be conducting pilot cryptocurrency transactions in Switzerland, local news outlet Vedomosti reported March 29.

According to Aleksandr Sobol, the Deputy Chairman of the Board at Gazprombank, Switzerland was chosen due to the more liberal crypto legislation in the country.

As yet it has not been decided if future crypto services will be offered to customers or conducted for Gazprombank’s own investment; Sobol said the bank is “trying to follow the situation actively.”
