According to Google Trends analytics, this month the number of cryptocurrency-related searches in Ukraine may reach a new annual high.
As Incrypted correspondents managed to find out, in the regional standings, unexpectedly, Zaporozhye region is in the lead, Kherson region is in second place.
The full top 5, in turn, looks like this:
- Zaporozhye region – 100.
- Kherson region – 87.
- Kyiv – 67.
- Odessa region – 63.
- Kharkiv region – 63.
Judging by the statistics, since the beginning of the year, interest in this industry has been rather sluggish. Then, from the end of January to the beginning of February, there is a jump. It was during this period that the trend reached its maximum – 87 absolute units.
At the end of May-beginning of June, the indicator overcame the mark of 75 units. Apparently, interest in the topic of cryptocurrencies is growing again. And this can be dictated by several factors.
“We are cautiously optimistic about this data showing the growing interest in cryptocurrencies in the country. I really want to believe that the popularity of the request is not dictated by the current problems of a particular region. We believe that such dynamics can contribute to the development of cryptocurrency infrastructure and innovative projects in Ukraine in the medium term.” – said the CEO of Incrypted, Ivan Pavlovsky.
Politics and Economics
For many Ukrainians, crypto assets have become a kind of way to save their assets. Bitcoin is often referred to as “digital gold” and this is true, albeit only in part.
In addition, cryptocurrency fundraising can become the basis for the post-war recovery of the country. Crypto donations have been of great help to both the Armed Forces of Ukraine and ordinary Ukrainians. It is quite natural that at the same time, the public’s interest in digital assets, as a class of alternative finance, has grown.
There is another factor – political. Ukraine in the regulatory field relies on the example of the EU. Last month, the bloc passed an important bill – MiCA.
It is designed to eliminate regulatory ambiguity in the legal field by defining the meaning and place of crypto assets. And the Ministry of Digital Development has already announced that they are considering this bill as the basis for a similar bill in Ukraine.
All this showed Ukrainians that cryptocurrency is not a toy or a seasonal hobby of futurologists. This is a completely new market. And no one wants to miss the opportunity to become a part of it.
