The NBU noted: "The advantages of e-hryvnia are ease of use, accessibility, security (redemption and payments are guaranteed by the National Bank) and the speed of payments."
At the end of 2016, the NBU launched a research project on the implementation of electronic hryvnia at the heart of the blockchain technology. The aim of the project was to minimize the risks and speed of sending transactional transfers from one participant in the Ukrainian payment market to another.
To study the possibilities of functioning of the introduction of the new technology, the NBU issued a limited amount of electronic hryvnia. "It is difficult to predict how many citizens of Ukraine will become users of e-hryvnia if they decide to implement it on a national scale. E-hryvnia cannot be introduced without significant investments and time to modernize the payment infrastructure and popularize e-hryvnia as a new tool for the population consumer habits", – stressed in the National Bank.
