Smart Dubai has recently held a series of demonstration days to discuss the progress of 14 Blockchain use cases that will be implemented by 12 government entities across the emirate. According to reports, the workshops were held to review a selection of Blockchain applications in a cross-section of areas, with the sessions enabling participants to assess the programme so far. The discussions centred on how to address the challenges being encountered from the Blockchain applications, how to improve their implementation and how to best learn from the overall Dubai Blockchain experience. Smart Dubai noted that the workshops formed part of the city’s Blockchain strategy, which revolves around three pillars: first, increasing government efficiency by transferring 100 per cent of applicable government transactions to Blockchain; second, creating a Blockchain industry and ecosystem; and third, becoming a global leader in the advancement of the Blockchain technology.

For some time ledger technology and Blockchain have been playing an important role in the Principality of Liechtenstein, which has also been confirmed by the Princely Family in several interviews. Liechtenstein, the sixth smallest nation in the world, currently has more businesses than inhabitants. Despite its UN and European Economic Area (EEA) membership, the country is still not an EU member. However, the Principality soon intends to create its own regulations (according to EU law) regarding crypto-economy. In the capital, Vaduz, there are monthly crypto-meetups, in which, despite the small size of the country, every time hundreds of people attend. The bank “Frick” is also one of the few financial institutions in Europe that allows direct investments in the top five crypto currencies.

The former Vice Prime-Minister of Liechtenstein, Dr. Thomas Zwiefelhofer himself informed our CEO Tomislav Matic about the benefits of his country in terms of crypto-economy and Blockchain during a visit to Crypto Future on July 17th.
