I do not currently live in Ukraine. Crypto is illegal in China.
In any case, legal status and taxation of cryptocurrencies can be tricky
at least for some developers in some countries. See

Also, as I mentioned in other emails, it's not just about legal status.
Other Org devs dislike the idea of using crypto for other reasons.
Bastien directly opposed it [1]. Another dev is not in favor because of
volatility (from personal communication).

The combination of the above reasons makes it difficult to accept crypto
while keeping things fair.
