Interros’ portfolio company Vladimir Potanin plans to issue Tokens to buy apartments in Norilsk. Blockchain platform Atomyze was earlier the first in Russia to receive a license from the Bank of Russia to manage digital financial assets.
Vladimir Potanin told Bloomberg about Atomyze’s plans to issue digital Tokens to buy real estate in Norilsk and home exchanges.
Digital tokens could be used to buy apartments in Norilsk, as well as to exchange those apartments for real estate in another city.
The president of Nornickel did not specify a launch date for the program, but noted that Rosbank plans to be a partner in the launch of tokenized real estate mortgages.
The investor of the blockchain platform Atomyze is the investment company Interros, owned by the billionaire president of Norilsk Nickel, Vladimir Potanin. He also said in an interview that digital tokens and rubles would soon supplant cryptocurrency.
Atomyze received a license from the Bank of Russia on February 3, becoming the first platform in Russia with the legal right to manage digital financial assets.
