15 Russian banks have started offering a service for opening a wallet in digital rubles and conducting transactions for their customers
Sberbank, VTB, Gazprombank, Alfa-Bank, Tinkoff, Promsvyazbank, Sovcombank, Rosbank, Dom.RF, Sinara, Ingosstrakh, Transcapitalbank, Ak Bars, MTS-Bank and Kiwi Bank have already made several thousand transactions, despite the "roughness" and "some incidents".
The law on the introduction of the digital ruble into the banking system was adopted in July.
The digital ruble cannot be bought in physical form. According to surveys, half of Russians do not plan to use the digital ruble, which the country's authorities have recently begun to introduce.
