On September 8, 2021, a historic event took place in Ukraine. The Verkhovna Rada supported draft law No. 3637 “On virtual assets”. It was developed to regulate the industry of digital currencies, in other words, now, the holders of cryptocurrencies will be able to declare and exchange them legally. Also, this law opens the door for international companies that would like to do business under Ukraine’s jurisdiction.
Shortly about the law:
- Cryptocurrencies acquire legal status, and market participants will be entitled to judicial protection.
- International exchanges with virtual assets will be able to operate in Ukraine legally.
- The Ministry of Finance will be the regulator of the virtual assets market; the National Bank of Ukraine and the National Securities Commission will receive authority in some matters.
