Well-known Ukrainian pharmacy chain enables crypto payments for its customers

ANC Pharmacy, a well-known pharmacy chain operating in Ukraine, allows its customers to pay for their products online using crypto. The announcement was made yesterday on the company’s official website and this new service is available thanks to its partnership with Binance Ukraine via contactless crypto payment service Binance Pay.


ANC Pharmacy operates on the Ukrainian territory with more than 1000 pharmacies and the new online crypto payment service will start in the Kyiv region. The company has always been very innovative and is constantly moving in the direction of digitalisation. To make an online payment using crypto, just three simple steps are enough:

- download the Binance app (iOS/Android) and go to the ANC.UA website

- choose the product you want to order on the ANC.UA website and pay using Binance Pay

- pick up the product at the pharmacy closest to you


It is not the first time that there has been a fruitful collaboration between Binance and a company operating in the territory in Ukraine. Already in September, Binance announced a partnership with Varus, a Ukrainian supermarket chain, to allow their customers to purchase products through Binance Pay Wallet, access a rewards program and enjoy fast delivery in 9 cities of Ukraine (Kyiv, Dnipro, Kamianske, Kryvyi Rih, Zaporizhzhia, Brovary, Nikopol, Vyshhorod, Pavlograd). Furthermore, at the end of April 2022 Binance had established the Binance Refugee Crypto Card for Ukrainians. Each person holding one will receive 75 BUSD per month (a total of 225 BUSD for three months) according to the recommended level of donations from the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR). Ukraine is facing the Russian invasion and is sustaining an unprecedented war effort also thanks to the crypto donations it is receiving from all over the world. Ukraine’s Kharkiv Art Museum launched an NFT collection to finance the Ukrainian Cultural Heritage. This new type of applications of the crypto industry, the presence of Blockchain associations operating on the Ukrainian territory and the fact that important crypto companies are founded by Ukrainian entrepreneurs make Ukraine a key country for the mass adoption of cryptocurrencies and the Web3.
