Daniela Bondarenko, a first-year student of the Department of Information Technology, said: “My impressions are unbeatable! I had heard about Forex before, and now it was interesting to learn more details about it. Also, some thoughts on cryptocurrencies were conveyed in very easy words. It was interesting.” Salima Luzhetska added:This is a really interesting event. I’m grateful to the administration for organizing something like this. When new people and professionals join the pairs, learning only becomes more interesting. Interest in the topic awakens when the speaker is interesting.” Angelina Karpiuk summarized the lecture as follows: “At this lecture, we were introduced to the concept and essence of the exchange rate.
