Mikhail Chobanyan, founder of the cryptocurrency exchanges Kuna, as well as the founder of the first Bitcoin Agency in Eastern Europe and the CIS, after several unsuccessful attempts to solve the problem with the Bank FUIB own, was forced to publicly appeal to the community.
On his page on Facebook Michael has posted a video which described the differences between him and the Bank which requires immediate action with the participation of experienced lawyers. Bank not only tried to undermine the reputation of Mr. Chobanyan, but in secret brought the situation to a criminal case:
“I have to raise the thorny issue with the banks. In short, by the decision of the Bank in cooperation with the Association of Ukrainian Interbank Payment Systems Member Association “EMA” got problems with other banks. In particular, without a trial I was in a “black list” and received an open criminal case”
“In fairness, I tried to solve the issue quietly. In the end, the head of the EMA Karpov told me about people with “bad” reputation, but the Bank decided not to respond to my application over a month”
Michael believes that transparency and publicity will be very useful in resolving this issue.
Many users in comments to the video suggested a “war” between cryptocurrency community and banks in Ukraine. Well, it’s hard to say anything for sure, but one thing is clear — the power of the banks over customers is limitless. That is why the revolutionary idea of cryptocurrency so close to many today.
P. S. While the material was prepared for publication on the website of Michael in Facebook, representatives of the Bank FUIB has published a comment:
Mike Chobanyan, good afternoon. Sincerely apologize. Working on Your case. Will soon be back with a review. Thank you
