Malta has a deep interest in the rapidly growing sector of digital technologies, Distributed Ledger Technologies in particular.

During the last few months, the Government of Malta has been working with private parties, across various sectors both locally and internationally, to identify the changes in their legislative and administrative framework that are required to accommodate disruptive technologies.

The ambition is for Malta and Blockchain Technology is to become the world’s first blockchain-regulated state with clearly established regulatory frameworks for DLTs, ICOs and virtual currencies.

As a result, Malta will have an opportunity to attract international businesses that seek regulation to establish their blockchain-based companies as well as those that will utilise virtual currencies.
