The summit has been organized with the support of the Prime Minister of Malta, Joseph Muscat who says:
Over previous months the Maltese government has actively thought about how to position Malta as a major hub in terms of a digital economy which will play a central role in the economic sustainability of the years to come. The Maltese government has legislated 3 acts that will provide legal certainty to this space, involving digital financial products and services such as virtual currencies and ICOs. This environment has already attracted towards Malta some of the world’s leading companies that operate cryptocurrency and blockchain ecosystem. Leading stakeholders are choosing Malta to host high-level international events which will pave the way to further investment. One such important event is Malta Blockchain Summit, this November 1st and 2nd. I look forward to meeting you then and together to straighten our ongoing efforts and making Malta The Blockchain Island”.
