Observing the rapid uptake and active use of virtual currencies that are not found in every country in the world, regulators are asking questions about the ability to control and regulate their operations. Therefore, the article describes approaches to determining the economic nature of virtual currencies and analyzes their legal regulation and transactions with them in the world and in Ukraine. The status and official attitude of the regulatory bodies of different countries, consolidation of legislation and taxation of virtual currencies are reflected. In recent years, there have been significant changes in the attitude of most cryptocurrencies in most of the leading countries of the world, from “illegal payment” to “promising financial instrument”. The increasing interest of government in progressive innovation has led to an increase in the influx of new entrants (both individuals and institutions) who are actively using virtual currencies. Yes, cryptocurrencies have caused a lot of concern about the risks they may bring since the first digital currency, Bitcoin. Over a period of time, cryptocurrency exchanges have been steadily increasing their interest in underwriting to ensure the secure process of exchanging and buying cryptocurrencies, reducing theft. Virtual currencies contain a large amount of capitalization in terms of fiat currencies, but the disorder and even the unstable state of cryptocurrencies, as well as the lack of historical loss data, complicate the process of controlling their turnover. However, given the interest, popularity and attention of the media, many, including lawyers, political scientists, economists, are trying to understand the basics of technology and its implications for politicians and other departments. The development of blockchain-based cryptocurrency technology has been introduced in areas that have traditionally been widely regulated, such as capital raising and money transfer. Politicians and other government officials often try to apply laws that have been developed for decades for the latest technology. The US in each state has a different definition and approach to cryptocurrency transactions. A similar situation is observed in the international arena, where some countries have sought to promote the growth of technology and others have sought to remove technology from their jurisdiction. Therefore, the legal field of law requires in-depth research and analysis on virtual currency transactions, the development and implementation of a new cryptocurrency exchange rate verification mechanism that is similar to those existing for traditional financial processes.
