Bank Of Russia Registers Country’s First Digital Asset Manager Atomyze


According to the company’s website, it is a Russia-based blockchain firm focused on “digitization of various assets and processes through distributed ledger technologies including, but not limited to DFA.”

Atomyze secures funding

Last year, Atomyze managed to secure funding from Russian conglomerate Interros. The conglomerate and investment firm was co-founded by billionaire Vladimir Potanin. The Russian businessman is the second-richest person in Russia with a net worth of $28.8 billion. He accumulated his wealth by buying a stake in the nickel and palladium mining company Norilsk Nickel in 1995.

“Atomyze became the first tokenization platform in Russia to receive a regulatory approval,” Interros wrote, adding that its ecosystem includes tokenization platforms not only in Russia but also in other jurisdictions, such as, in the United and Switzerland. The announcement also states the following:

“This will ensure Russia’s “digital equality” in the global digital economy, make it easier for Russian companies to enter world markets, and make it possible to attract more foreign capital to Russia.
