ForkLog asked Mikhail to comment on the sumbitted of the documents.
FL: You published information as to submitting a document package to the National Bank and the head of the securities committee.
Chobanian: Yes, we did submit the documents to the National Bank and the committee to notify the government entries that this kind of project is about to be launched in Ukraine. We think they might find it interesting. Anyway, the project is related to financial markets, so we opted to notify them. We don’t expect any feedback.
FL: So, you have no plans as to running a regulated exchange?
MC: No, there’s no regulation on the table. There is the license stating the basing things that would underlie our business. So, our shareholders and customers probably realize what we are going to do, and how we will do it.
Earlier this year, the extended meeting at the National Bank of Ukraine considered the project for â€śBitcoin development in Ukraineâ€ť. It was the first discussion on cryptocurrency attended by representatives of the NBU. Back then, Mikhail Chobanian offered the regulator to introduce a Ukrainian bitcoin license.
