The head of the Ukrainian bitcoin exchange Kuna: Blockchain Hub stops working

Kuna Exchange CEO Mikhail Chobanyan announced the closure of Blockchain Hub in January 2020 - the first specialized spaces for the work of Ukrainian and foreign blockchain projects.

The reason was a sharp (40%) increase in rents by the owner of the premises.

Kuna Exchange and related projects will move to a new office.

The Blockchain Hub opened last March. The organizers set themselves the following goals:

  • support for existing startups;
  • creation of new projects;
  • contributing to the growth of the blockchain community;
  • lobbying the interests of Ukrainian cryptocurrency companies on the world stage.

They also intended to launch educational programs on blockchain technology for various levels of knowledge.

Recall that in December 2018, the Blockchain Hub, with the support of the Blockchain Association of Ukraine, opened the first school for developers.
