Ukraine & Crypto Adoption

As we know that Ukraine was not a much better place for the crypto sector but the Russia vs Ukraine conflict resulted in a better outcome for the crypto sector.

Many reports confirmed that the majority of the Ukrainians showed their Inclination toward Crypto assets as the best payment option & best option to store funds safely amid big war situations in the country, where the majority of the financial services were closed in order to save from hacking attacks.
