This partnership will help draft crypto laws, legislation, technology transfer and regulations regarding international transactions.

So what does it mean for cryptocurrency in Ukraine? Deputy Minister of Digital Transformation, Alexander Bornyakov, said that Ukraine wants to learn and adopt the technologies used in Belarus. This partnership will help develop Ukrainian legislation regarding blockchain, digital assets, and cryptocurrencies.

Why Belarus loves cryptocurrencies

Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko is an avid fan of blockchain and cryptocurrencies. The government also proposed tax incentives and reliefs for cryptocurrency traders. Lukashenko proclaimed that Belarus would set an example in the world regarding fair use and development of blockchain and cryptocurrencies.

Belarus wants to ride the winds of change in the East European region. It aims to become a regional cryptocurrency center offering class-leading technical innovation. The country wants to explore the potential of blockchain in various spheres of life. Judging by these statements, Ukraine will surely become a blockchain-friendly nation in the coming years.
