Weeks after Russia President Vladimir Putin put crypto bill into law, the country is now trying to develop AI system which will be useful for monitoring cryptocurrency transactions.

It will not only track but also analyze cryptocurrencies, such as bitcoin, dash, and monero. The prototype of the AI has already been created and is currently being tested.

A letter citing to Parshin Maxim Viktorovich, Deputy Minister of Russia’s Digital Development, Communications and Mass Media said that The Russian government is planning a new system to track bitcoin transactions.

The letter has described a planning for the Federal Financial Monitoring Service of the Russian Federation (Rosfinmonitoring) to monitor cryptocurrency transactions.

“Rosfinmonitoring plans to develop a system for analyzing cryptocurrency transactions using artificial intelligence (AI),” the letter said.

The project is also aimed to remove the anonymity of participants in transactions with cryptocurrencies in Bitcoin, Ethereum, Omni, Dash, and Monero systems,” the letter reportedly notes.

The authorities, the Bank of Russia, and financial organizations will be able to use the system to monitor and analyze the movement of cryptocurrencies, identify service providers, and conduct investigations related to their illegal circulation.
