Which Countries Are Best to Start Blockchain Projects?
Bitcoin’s boom has spawned more than just a digital currency revolution. Companies across the globe have explored the potential of blockchain technology in a range of different spheres, including cars, phones, and a multitude of disruptive alternatives in banking, government and as well as shipping.
Also, it is not only the small startups that are trying to push blockchain innovation, but rather conglomerates as big as Amazon, Alibaba and Microsoft. However, these companies are still trying to negotiate an ever-expanding regulatory framework that is growing at different rates across different states.
Many different companies began springing up within the cryptocurrency ecosystem, usually attached to a capital raising ICO, which left many regulators wondering how to control this decentralized, crowd-funded form of capital raising.
rom the SEC to the Chinese government's hard clampdown on ICOs to Malta and Switzerland competing to be the premier destination for fintech and blockchain, different nations have taken widely different views on how to regulate, quash or support blockchain startups.
