  • After being included in the register of the Central Bank , Atomyze will be able to organize the circulation of tokens backed by money or goods on its platform. One of the company’s investors is Vladimir Potanin’s Interros.
  • At Atomyze, different companies can issue tokens backed by monetary claims or other digital assets.
  • Companies and banks could apply for inclusion in the register of the Central Bank from January 1, 2021. Only in this way did they have the right to create platforms for issuing tokens and act as operators of their exchange. In addition to Atomyze, applications were submitted by Sberbank, VTB, and Transmashholding.
  • In 2019, Potanin said in an interview with Bloomberg that the company is developing a platform for trading metal-backed tokens. Potanin’s investments in the project amounted to about $100 million. Then he clarified that Norilsk Nickel plans to sell 20% of the metal through the crypto platform in the next few years.
  • In 2020, Norilsk Nickel launched testing of a digital currency investment platform on the Central Bank platform. The project has been approved by the regulator.
