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
