Crypto Valley may have suffered from the overall crypto downturn of the last year, but there’s no reason to blame marketing for that. Here are three reasons why - and why Crypto Valley is still a good place to be.
The Swiss Federal Government is moving forward to establish a legal framework for blockchain and distributed ledger technologies in the country. Unlike other countries in the region (Lichtenstein and Malta, for instance) Switzerland will aim to amend and refine existing laws rather than create new ones.
Despite the worldwide reputation of Silicon Valley as the top spot for startups and venture capital, it is Europe that is taking the lead when it comes to blockchain and crypto innovation.
