Malta has earned the title of ‘Blockchain Island’ for being the first jurisdiction to clearly delineate blockchain regulations. Frequently cited on major publications for its ‘avant-garde’ and ‘can do’ attitude, Malta had facilitated the transition of Binance, OKEx, and BitPay to the island.
The Malta Blockchain Summit, set to take place at the InterContinental on November 1-3, reflects the island nation’s wide-open arms to anything related to the blockchain community and relevant industries.
Malta, with its new regulatory framework, is leveraging its position as the head of the pack with this Blockchain Summit, a reflection of the cryptocurrency and blockchain momentum.
