The adoption of laws on digital of financial assets and crowdfunding will help to regulate the activities of platforms such as «Casbee», in which the Bank of Russia saw the signs of a financial pyramid, said to RIA Novosti, the head of the Duma Committee on Finance Anatoly Aksakov.

On Wednesday, the Central Bank said that the regulator gave the Prosecutor’s office and the interior Ministry information about the group of Russian and foreign companies, operating under the brand «Cerberi». The group has positioned itself as a p2p investment platform that allows individuals to give the borrowed funds to other citizens.

«I think we’ll settle all the issues related to the use of such platforms with the adoption of laws on digital of financial assets and crowdfunding. We are now doing this. I think largely this issue will be removed,» he said.

Aksakov explained that these projects will establish requirements for platforms, platform operators, projects, and stipulates the liability for negligent behavior. «Plus all these platforms will be in the securities register. «Cerberi» in any of the registers, of course, was not included. And legally, the activities of these platforms, unfortunately, not regulated», — he added.

According to the MP, financial pyramid schemes in recent years has become less due to the adoption of the law on the responsibility for their creation. Aksakov reminded that the essence of the financial pyramid that everyone who came before it receives its income from the people who make their money later. «Cerberi» unlike … UMM to raise money through investmentfirma for projects. «However, «Cerberi», in a sense, like a pyramid, but still there’s money through an investment platform attracted for implementation of projects,» — said Aksakov.

In turn, the financial Ombudsman Russia Pavel Medvedev believes that «Cerberi» not like MMM. In his view, activities «, Cerberi» seen a common Scam. «With the size of the MMM is absolutely incomparable…. The pyramid was more or less well organized (the founder of the MMM Sergei — ed.) Mavrodi. And this, strictly speaking, not a pyramid, but just crooks», — told RIA Novosti the Ombudsman.
