New All-time High Bitcoin Price in UkraineBitcoinist_Bitcoin Price

According to the charts on, the UAH price per XBT [Bitcoin] has reached a new all-time high earlier today. At roughly 10 o’clock local time this morning, the price per Bitcoin surpassed the 10,500 UAH mark. That is quite an increase compared to just 24 hours earlier when the price was around the 9,600 UAH mark.

All over the world, the Bitcoin price is seeing a healthy nudge upwards over the past 24 hours, as the USD value of this popular digital currency surpassed the US$435 mark again. There doesn’t seem to be a clear indication as to why the Bitcoin price is increasing all of a sudden, but this is a free market after all.

Bitcoin is rather easily accessible in Ukraine, as nearly 5,000 payment terminals in the country offer Bitcoin for cash. Consumers can buy Bitcoin vouchers from a company called BTCU after depositing cash in a terminal. These vouchers need to be entered on the BCU website, and the Bitcoin value will be transferred to their designated wallet address.

Ukraine is one of those countries where there is a growing demand for cheaper and more convenient payment systems, especially when it comes to settling overseas e-commerce transactions. Paying outrageous fees on SWIFT payments or other forms of traditional payment is not acceptable, and Bitcoin offers a solution in that regard.

  • Rassah

    There’s no “the” before Ukraine. It’s just Ukraine. Like it’s not “the America” or “the Canada.” Putting “the” in front of it is considered derogatory and demeaning by Ukrainians.

    Couldn`t agree more.

  • “the” wise guy

    It’s not always “Ukraine” just like it’s not always United States, United Kingdom, Congo, Grenadines and so on with many others. It’s not mean with disrespect or derogatory in any way it’s the “get it {the}” English Language. Wrong yes, In English you would not say ” I’m going to United Kingdom!” You say “I’m going to THE United kingdom!” And not “I’m going to THE England!” It’s “I’m going to England!” That is why it is such a moronic language. And hard to learn. Nothing will change it and “That’s just the way it is!” Another stupid English saying!
