In a statement released by the deputy chairman Oleg Churiy, the Financial Stability Council (FSC) will decide on the legal status of bitcoin and its regulation by the end of August 2017.

The government is considering an overall aspect to its digital asset guidance. The government is considering where all the digital asset serves as currency, grants ownership in a company or provides utility to consumers.
The coming meeting would give out a resolution to the standing of Bitcoin in the country and if not it would at least result in the crucial talks in the very direction. As of now, Ukraine has not shied away from involving in the cryptocurrency. The country will also see 150 bitcoin teller machines by the January of 2018.
