Problems of development of non-banking payment systems in Ukraine

Volodymyr Tkachuk


Introduction. The development of non-cash payments is the key to economic growth in any country, because on the one hand, the level of control over payments increases, and on the other - the volume of customer spending increases, which leads to increased consumption and GDP growth. However, current trends in e-commerce and online commerce require the emergence of new technological solutions in the form of electronic payment systems that can legally handle transactions with electronic money and cryptocurrencies. Given the rapid pace of growth in transactions through non-banking electronic payment systems, the issue of identifying obstacles to the development of such payment systems is urgent, especially in view of the need to ensure effective oversight of payments and the deduction of payments.

Purpose. The study of the main problems of development of non-banking payment systems in Ukraine in terms of their structural features and importance for the development of the national economy, as well as the development of recommendations for improving the right regulation of payment transactions with electronic money and cryptocurrencies.

Results. The features of the development of non-bank payment systems in Ukraine are investigated. The author classification of non-bank payment systems is offered. The main directions of development of electronic payment systems in Ukraine are identified and the obstacles to the integration of international electronic payment systems providing cryptocurrency payment services are highlighted. Measures to improve domestic legislation in the field of electronic payment and cryptocurrency based electronic payment systems are proposed, as well as recommendations on the creation of a state non-banking electronic payment system using blockchain technology to increase transparency and public procurement payments paying taxes.
