Experts call Ukraine the world capital of crypto currencies and ideal territory for the development and implementation of blockchain-based projects. Who is behind this achievement? Efforts of particular individuals have helped Ukraine earn such fame in the global market of innovative technologies.
Back in 2013, when Bitcoin mania was only beginning to emerge in Ukraine, the first heroes appeared and opened the doors to many interesting and unique projects. Today, during the boom, Ukraine has a considerable number of blockchain enthusiasts who develop their industry projects not only in our country but also all over the world. Bitcoin Foundation Ukraine has made a list of the most influential and active blockchain enthusiasts whose names are known far beyond the borders of the state.
Knowing that so much is on the line, we have listed the names alphabetically :)
