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.

Switzerland is increasingly becoming the most important blockchain hotspot in Central Europe - after numerous other projects, the Swiss stock exchange "SIX" now also relies on blockchain technology. The intention is to create its own blockchain-based and secure trading platform. The "SIX Digital Exchange" should start with the first services in mid-2019, as the stock market announced on Friday. The Swiss Stock Exchange says that it wants to create the first fully integrated trading-infrastructure for trade, settlement and safekeeping of digital assets. For the time being the banks could decide whether they want to use the traditional electronic- or the new digital trading platform. It’s possible that the SIX Digital Exchange will replace the existing system in the future.

Other major exchange platforms are also working on blockchain solutions. For example last December the Australian ASX Group announced that it would replace the existing settlement system “Chess” with a blockchain-based system.
