Ukraine has indicated interest to join the European Blockchain Partnership (EBP), as it plans to integrate its DİGİTAL ECENOMİC goal with the EU.
This will make Ukraine the third non-EU country to do so after Liechtenstein and Norway joined earlier. The initiative was founded by 27 member states to provide cross-border public services.
Ukraine Will Run A Test-Node Before Registering Fully
Ukraine’s Ministry of Digital Information announced the decision to join the EU as an observer in a bid to expand its blockchain network with other countries.
Ukraine started showing interest to join EBP in July 2021 when the founder of Virtual Assets for Ukraine, Blockchain4Ukraine, and Head of Parliamentary Group, Oleksii Zhmerenetskyi,m wrote a letter to the European Commission (EC). They informed the commission that Ukraine is interested in joining the European Blockchain Services Infrastructure (EBSI) and the EBP as an observer.
They informed the commission that Ukraine is interested in running a test-node of the EBSI as well as a pilot testing of the cross-border public services on blockchain technology. Cryptocurrency donations for Ukraine during the crisis have already laid an important foundation and supported the country’s cause to join the blockchain community.
