The plans of the National Bank of Ukraine (NBU) still include the issue of electronic currency (e-grivna), created on the basis of blocking technology. This is reported by vesti-ukr.
Thanks to the issue of centralized digital currency, the National Bank intends to reduce the turnover of fiat money. To avoid inflation, citizens will be able to exchange the future “e-hryvnia” for cash and non-cash funds in a ratio of 1: 1.
At this moment financial regulator has not submitted a plan for implementing the idea. Last year the National Bank was already considering the possibility of issuing an electronic hryvnia.
