Ukrainian goes with Bitcoin ATMs to bypass banking system

first_imgUkraine will soon have 150 new ATMs for both buying and selling cryptocurrencies, with around 30 of the machines slated to open by the end of August, The Kiyv Post has learned from Mike Chobanyan, head of the Bitcoin agency in Ukraine.The devices will allow both selling and buying hryvnias, the national currency, and a variety of cryptocurrencies including Bitcoins, Ethereum (or Ether), Waves, and Golos.Ukrainian entrepreneurs want to install the ATMs because of the troubled situation with the Ukrainian banking system, which generates problems for businesses, Chobanyan told The Kyiv Post. Using cryptocurrencies allows businesses to bypass the traditional banking sector, he said, declining to reveal the names of the machine buyers.Chobanyan himself brought the first Ukrainian cryptocurrency ATM to Odessa, a city in southern Ukraine, in April 2017. This device allows users to withdraw amounts of at least 500 hryvnias or 0.1 Bitcoin, around $20 at the current exchange rate.Bitcoin began being accepted by pioneering Ukrainian merchants as early as 2014.

first_imgBy Kacy Mixon, M.S., LMFTPartnering with Victims:[Flickr, Solving Jigsaw Puzzle by Yoel Ben-Avraham,CC BY-ND 2.0] Retrieved on September 17, 2015When professionals working with domestic violence populations send messages that communicate both concern and respect, it can make a big difference in building trust and providing validation. Creating a partnership for safety reduces victim isolation and may also reduce victims’ feelings of powerlessness and anxiety. The chart below highlights strategies that professionals can suggest to develop partnerships with victims by promoting increased support, awareness, and self-care [2].Smith, L.B., Mixon, K.A. (2013). Unit 3: Safety. Family Centered Treatment: Domestic Violence Training. [Online curriculum].Partnering with the Community:It is Department of Defense policy to:“Provide for the safety of victims, hold abusers appropriately accountable for their behavior; and coordinate the response to domestic abuse with the local community.” [1]Community coordinated responses are a way to prioritize the safety and welfare of victims and children experiencing domestic violence.  Outlined in DoD instructions are military protocol connected to the prevention and responses to domestic violence. The protocol that military personnel (Commanders, Victims Advocates, etc.) adhere to have a vital role in creating partnerships with the military and civilian community.
