“WebMoney” units, equivalent to the Uzbek national currency, no longer exist in Uzbekistan. The publication Bank.uz reported today, referring to web-based resource center.
The WebMoney system allows you to instantly pay for your mobile communication of any mobile operator, pay for all utility bills and services, purchase airline tickets and even travel vouchers, without leaving your house, as well as be able to pay for purchases in almost any shops.
The organization used to open access to users of Uzbekistan to the software and system platforms WebMoney Transfer, which provided instant secure payments on the Internet.
Thus, pay for anything with WMY or create new WMY-purses in Uzbekistan is now impossible.
Meanwhile, as the newspaper notes, on the site Roem.ru appeared an official comment on the situation, by the executive director of WebMoney Transfer Victor Turskov. According to him, the reason for not extending the license for the current safeguards is the inefficiency of its work (a very low turnover and lack of any kind of dynamic).
However, Turskov assured that “in Uzbekistan will be a new WebMoney-guarantee” and it will run on a bank basis. However, when the new company representing WebMoney will start its work, he did not specify. “The main thing – WMY is not closing! People, who are interested can exchange them at any time at the market rate to WMZ and then on other WM-currency.
The liquidity of WMY is saved and maintained, “- summarized Victor Turskov.
