So what do you need to know about the latest crypto news out of Ukraine?

Well, despite mounting concerns of a conflict between Russia and Ukraine, the latter country found time to address another pressing matter. As per a statement from the parliament, the Law of Ukraine on Virtual Assets passed with more than 270 votes. The legislation, which is in line with the president’s recommendation, allows crypto companies to operate freely in the country.

While cryptos weren’t banned in Ukraine prior to the law, this legislation outlines the regulatory landscape and gives protection to digital assets. Previously, as Bloomberg reported, crypto existed in the shadows in the country despite Ukraine being one of the top countries for crypto trading.

Mykhailo Fedorov, the Ukrainian deputy prime minister, had some kind words for the law.

“The new law is an additional opportunity for business development in our country. Foreign and Ukrainian crypto companies will be able to operate legally, and Ukrainians will have convenient and secure access to the global market for virtual assets.”

Despite the news, market uncertainty continues to overwhelm the markets. Bitcoin dipped below $40,000 briefly today, spooking investors around the globe.
