Gibraltar embraces blockchain technology

Blockchain Gibraltar

Blockchain GibraltarBlockchain represents more than just the future of finance, it’s a pivotal technological shift in how we do business globally.

Though the technology is still in its infancy, Gibraltar recognised the massive potential early on and acted quickly. After all, why keep pace with technological innovation when you can help drive it instead?

This is precisely what Gibraltar has achieved with ground-breaking DLT regulations and the formation of the Gibraltar Blockchain Exchange – a world first – to facilitate ICOs and crypto-currency trading.

By fully embracing blockchain, Gibraltar is on the fast track to becoming the FinTech capital of the world. It is a monumental achievement and, as the largest law firm in Gibraltar, Hassans International Law Firm can help you maximise this enormous potential.

Blockchain Gibraltar

Gibraltar’s reputation as a forward-thinking hub of global trade dates back to ancient times. Located at the junction of Europe, Africa and the Atlantic, it is often referred to as the crossroads of history.

More recently, however, the British territory finds itself at a new crossroads – the intersection of finance and technology known as FinTech.

Following the announcement of the launch by the Gibraltar Stock Exchange of the new Gibraltar Blockchain Exchange (GBX), a fully-regulated exchange for crypto-asset trading, investors the world over have been eying the Rock with great interest.
