    Potanin Forges Ahead on Tokens for Metals and Air Tickets

    (Bloomberg) -- Russians may soon be able to use digital tokens to buy metals, book air tickets and transfer ski passes from Vladimir Potanin’s businesses after the billionaire got the go-ahead for his blockchain platform.Potanin has long signaled plans to start crypto tokens for metals, but can now expand the project to the consumer side of his empire after getting central bank approval last week. The aim of the platform is to speed up transactions and reduce paperwork and interaction between customers and companies.“To some extent Russia appears ahead of many other jurisdictions in terms of digitalization,” Potanin, Russia’s richest man, said in an interview near Moscow. “The central bank gave us a very wide mandate.”The commodities industry is looking to digital trading systems using ledger technology to cut costs and administration and track materials through the supply chain. The tech and digital currencies are also being used more widely for things like renting cars or voting on soccer-club decisions, although blockchain is yet to take off on a large scale.The platform, called Atomyze, will also be available in the U.S. and Switzerland, but limited to companies and not individuals. It’s expected to start by year-end once a Russian law on digital financial assets comes into force and after further approvals abroad.For Potanin, the biggest impact could be on metals. He said last year that crypto tokens may eventually account for a fifth of sales at MMC Norilsk Nickel PJSC, the world’s biggest palladium and refined nickel producer.Norilsk Nickel will initially test tokens backed by palladium, cobalt and copper and plans to eventually expand to other metals, Atomyze said in a statement on Tuesday. Companies testing the platform include Trafigura Group Ltd., Traxys SA and Umicore SA.Atomyze will need approval from Russia’s central bank if it wants to expand the number of companies offering services and is restricted from issuing tokens denominated in any currencies, Potanin said. It will use Russian lender Sberbank PJSC to process individuals’ money transactions.The platform may lead to other large Russian companies applying for approval for similar projects, Potanin said. It took about four months for the central bank to test Atomyze, he said. The tycoon also invested directly in the platform.“Our project is of great importance for the economy because the easier new products are offered, the faster they are produced,” he said.(Updates with metal token tests in seventh paragraph)To contact the reporter on this story: Yuliya Fedorinova in Moscow at yfedorinova@bloomberg.netTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Lynn Thomasson at lthomasson@bloomberg.net, Nicholas Larkin, Dylan GriffithsFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2020 Bloomberg L.P.

    UPDATE 2-Brexit worries pressure London shares, Europe steady

    European shares closed little changed on Tuesday on persistent growth worries and as London stocks succumbed to heightened Brexit uncertainty after the Supreme Court ruled that the British prime minister's suspension of parliament was unlawful. The pound rallied as the Court's decision was seen as reducing the probability of Britain leaving the European Union without a divorce deal or possibly delaying Brexit. The currency's rally saw the FTSE 100 give up 0.5% as firms that earn much of their revenue in dollars fell.

    Glencore's cobalt stock overhang contains prices despite mine suspension

    Cobalt prices have started to firm after Glencore announced plans to freeze output at the world's largest mine of the battery material, but traders say an overhang of stock held by the commodity trader and miner will inevitably cap gains. Glencore said its Mutanda mine in the Democratic Republic of Congo will be put on "care and maintenance" from the end of this year for an expected two years as the economic rationale for keeping it going had deteriorated. Cobalt prices on the London Metal Exchange are near their lowest since October 2016, having crashed to $27,800 a tonne or $12.60 a lb from levels near $100,000 a tonne or $45 a lb in May last year.
