“I passionately believe technology revolutionizes and improves systems. This is why in Malta, we have launched ourselves as the blockchain island. By being the first jurisdiction worldwide to regulate this new technology that previously existed in a legal vacuum. Blockchain makes cryptocurrencies inevitable future of money. More transparent it helps filter good business from bad business.”
Prime Minister Muscat emphasized that recognizing the potential of the blockchain, Malta has openly embraced the crypto market and businesses within it, leading the global cryptocurrency sector with favorable regulations and practical policies.
Taking Blockchain Further
In his speech, Prime Minister Muscat further explained that the local government remains passionate about the potential of the blockchain and its ability to eliminate third party service providers to provide users complete freedom over information and money.
He explained that the blockchain will eventually produce solutions that can replace existing infrastructure in major industries like healthcare and charity.
“Blockchain can provide solutions to health care systems where patients have real ownership of their medical records. Emissions trading systems can be taken to the next level. We can help verify that humanitarian assistance is reaching its intent destination. We can make sure that nobody is deprived of their legitimate property because of compromised data,” Prime Minister Muscat noted.
