The CEO of Nornickel Vladimir Potanin believes that the launch of the new stablecoin based on precious metals will allow attracting investors with a large aggregate capital. In an interview to a local major edition, Potanin added that a metal-pegged coin is a cheap funding method.

The Nornickel CEO also has plans to launch a crypto exchange as well as crypto derivatives that he wants to realize in collaboration with a private Interros holding. Potanin believes that his ideas regarding digital assets can ensure a way to secure Russian economy from overseas sanctions and make the current situation more flexible for Russia.
