#PRODialogue: On May 24 – “Regulation of the Market of Cryptocurrency in Ukraine”

17-05-2018

By 2018, about 1,800 different cryptocurrencies have been created in the world. 25 of them have been created by the companies of Ukrainian origin. Ukraine is among top-10 countries in the world by the number of cryptocurrency users, while the daily cryptocurrency trading volumes with hryvnias amounted to $1.9 million. At the same time, the legal status of cryptocurrencies and transactions with them is still unclear in Ukraine. There are no registered companies that carry out relevant activities on the market.

How should the state respond on the cryptocurrency market development? What aspects of the current legislation hinder the market development? What risks do the state and market participants see when using cryptocurrencies? Is it necessary to license the cryptocurrency creation services?

The state, business and market representatives will try to find answers during the Roundtable “Regulation of the cryptocurrency market in Ukraine” in Kyiv on May 24.

The event will be attended by:

Oleksandr Danchenko, Head of the Verkhovna Rada Committee for Informatization and Communications

Maksim Nefyodov, First Deputy Minister of Economic Development and Trade of Ukraine

Mykhaylo Chobanyan, Founder of the KUNA cryptocurrencies exchange

Mykhaylo Vidyakin, Director of the NBU Strategy and Reforms Department

Oleksiy Mushak, People’s Deputy of Ukraine

Artem Afyan, Managing Partner of Juscutum JSC

Yehor Aushev, Co-founder of Hacken

Vladyslav Radysh, Global government director of Bitfury

Oleksiy Honcharuk, BRDO Head

Oleksandr Kubrakov, IT Sector Head, BRDO
