The Ukrainian National Securities and Stock Market Commission (SSMCS) will consider recognizing cryptocurrencies as a financial instrument, according to an announcement May 8.

The head of the commission, Timur Khromaev, made the announcement in a Facebook post following the annual conference of the International Organization of Securities Commissions (IOSCO) on crypto and Initial Coin Offerings (ICOs).

According to Khromaev, the crypto industry has developed significantly over the last three years, causing the crypto market to become an “integral part of economic and financial relations.” The SSMCS commissioner highlighted the necessity of legal recognition of cryptocurrencies and adapting the position of financial regulators. Khromaev said that, “the point of no return is in the past.”
