In Ukraine, the government gave legal recognition to cryptocurrencies on 20 February in the midst of war situations. The Parliament of Ukraine has passed a law relating to cryptocurrencies and cryptocurrencies have been declared legal.
Kuna’s founder Michael Chobanian said, “We do not trust the government. We don’t even rely on local currency. Most people are left with no other option than crypto. Tether is the most popular stablecoin. Its market cap is around $80 billion. Unlike Bitcoin and Ethereum, it fluctuates very little.
At the current exchange rate, 1 USDT is priced around 32 Ukrainian harvinia (Ukraine’s currency) or $1.10. With the increase in demand, its price is also increasing. By the way, for the last few months, the Ukrainian government is trying to make the country a hub of digital currency.
