The pilot test for the Russian digital ruble is progressing as planned, according to Elvira Nabiullina, the Governor of the Bank of Russia.

The ongoing trials involve a variety of operations such as wallet openings and interactions with smart contracts.

So far, the initiative has seen over 25,000 transactions being successfully executed.

Furthermore, Nabiullina has announced plans to expand the pilot later in the year, signaling the central bank's commitment to integrating digital currency operations into Russia's financial landscape.
