In our modern world, digital technologies have become an integral part of human life, and their development is so rapid that the law does not always have time to respond "promptly" to the emergence of new items, technological solutions, or virtual currencies. Both in theory and in practice, several questions have arisen regarding the criminal legal qualification of acts related to corruption in the digital environment, including in the field of cryptocurrencies. Difficulties arise primarily because in Ukraine, as in many other countries, the legal status of this phenomenon is not defined at the legislative level. By the chosen goal and to solve the tasks set out in this paper, the author used a combination of general scientific, research, and special methods of modern science, namely: formal logic, analysis, synthesis, deduction, induction, abstraction, hypothesis, and analogy. The purpose of the article is to analyze new types of corruption offenses in the digital world, in particular those related to the use of cryptocurrency for corrupt purposes, and to analyze the prospects for legislative regulation to overcome this negative phenomenon.
