In Kaliningrad, a meeting of the Council of the Russian Federation was held. In particular, during the meeting, Novgorod region Governor Andrei Nikitin said that the blockchain for residents of the region has already become “ordinary”.
With the help of a joint project between Vnesheconombank and the Government of the Novgorod region, starting in April 2018, the turnover of medicines is fully recorded on decentralized ledger. It helps to track interactions between doctors and patients from the moment of treatment to the dispensing of prescription drugs in pharmacies.
The members of the Council agreed on the fact that the regulation of this sphere in Russia should not be excessively harsh, as this will prevent the formation of a comfortable digital ecosystem in the country. It was proposed to create a number of “regulatory sandboxes”.
