Several large cryptocurrency exchanges are interested in starting official work in Ukraine. This was stated Chairman of the Supervisory Board of the Ukrainian Association of Venture and Private Capital (UVCA) Andrey Kolodyuk at the RE: THINK forum. Invest in Ukraine, Interfax reports.

“Over the past 2.5 years, three world cryptocurrenciesexchanges asked me to make sure that they can work legally in Ukraine: register, get a license, open a representative office. Two things are of interest: a license and a bank that makes hryvnia-crypt transactions and back, ” - said Kolodyuk.

However, what kind of sites in question, the representative of UVCA did not specify.

According to him, now the country is starting to create conditions for the development of the cryptocurrency market:

“I am glad that this process has begun. So far, Ukraine is not visible on this map - there are Belarus, Malta, Singapore and other jurisdictions that are trying to create favorable conditions for conducting cryptocurrency business. But I think it's time for us to position Ukraine as a friendly place for experiments related to cryptocurrencies and blockchain. ”

Recall earlier this month in Ukrainepresented bills on the taxation of cryptocurrency transactions and anti-money laundering using digital assets, as well as amendments to the document “On public electronic registries” aimed at introducing blockchain.

In October, the Verkhovna Rada also signed a memorandum on regulating blockchain technology.

In addition, the Blockchain Ukraine Association presented a project to create a crypto valley.
