Did you know that Malta, a very small island country off the southern coast of Italy, has acclaimed itself as the undisputed “Blockchain Island”? The token phrase (no pun intended) has been given to them by the crypto elite, and earned through swift legislation by the Malta Government whom have passed 3 pieces of legislation to support the rapidly-growing technology.
On the 23rd and 24th of May, the crypto world is colliding at the Hilton in Malta to discuss AI, Big Data, Blockchain, IoT, and Quantum Technologies. The Malta AI & Blockchain Summit is broadening the discussion around cryptocurrency — it’s not just about token investments anymore, but how much positive social impact can be made through the technology.
Here are some key players that will be apart of the discussion in Malta this Spring:
- Hon. Joseph Muscat, President of Malta
- Hon. Silvio Schembri, Parliamentary Secretary – Financial Services
- Tim Draper, DFJ Venture
- Roger Ver, Bitcoin.com and Blockchain.com Investor
- Sophia the Robot
Binance, OKEx, and Tron all currently have a presence in Malta, and Binance and Tron have already donated $100,000 in cryptocurrency, each. The funds will be used to support Malta youth and development programs. The Malta government is making a big bet on blockchain and AI to leapfrog other countries in the EU. Do you think it will pay off?
There are a few interesting things about this country:
- The land mass is equal in size to US cities like Tampa, Atlanta, or Portland
- You can purchase your citizenship through buying or renting a home for 5+ years
- It is home to the Instagram-famous rock arch called the Azure Window
Here is a video walk-through of the beautiful country and cryptocurrency integration put together by Cointelegraph.
It is reported that at the AI & Blockchain Summit this Spring, the Malta government will pass the 4th law to legally support and protect cryptocurrency technology.
