Until today, hundreds of companies have in the so-called crypto Valley established 3000 new Jobs were created. In the next few years is to multiply their number. The starting situation is good, is also the designated Federal President Maurer, “but Switzerland is not allowed to play to their excellent maps are now wrong”.
A Blockchain-law, as in other countries will not give it, says the Federal Council is the infrastructure chain. Various laws should be adjusted so that Switzerland could maintain its leading position.
This is according to Maurer, the basic tenor of the report of the working group Blockchain/ICO of the Covenant, which will be published next week. Also, measures are included to secure the location for innovation, Switzerland.
the First applications in the start holes
experts are convinced that Blockchains will trigger the next digital Revolution. Because no company wants to miss the connection, is the technology in the economy is a constant topic of conversation: a few days Ago it became known that the Swiss Post and Swisscom jointly develop a Blockchain platform for Switzerland.
