The development of the Financial Technology (Fintech) industry which resulted in digital currency, referred to nowadays as cryptocurrency, is allowed to be used in most European countries. Malta, which gained reputation as being in the forefront and a prime hub for financial services, has already published the first-ever regulatory framework for virtual currency, making Malta one of the countries that accept cryptocurrencies.

The Maltese islands, on 4th July, 2018, became the first world jurisdiction to provide the first blockchain regulatory framework as the Maltese Parliament approved three separate bills as laws – the Malta Digital Innovation Authority Act, the Innovative Technological Arrangement and Services Act, and the Virtual Financial Asset Act. Such a National Blockchain Strategy aims to materialise the opportunities of distributed ledger technology, being, to create electronic systems which reduces bureaucracy within the various government department and authorities.

Being a recognized financial centre for cryptocurrency and an attractive jurisdiction for setting up cryptocurrency companies, top exchange platforms have already confirmed their relocation and investment in Malta, naming Malta as the Blockchain Island.
