Switzerland topped the European rating of countries comfortable for conducting blockchain start-ups. The authors of the rating – the expert council of the BlockShow Europe forum – assessed the regulatory framework for ICO, the taxation of digital assets and the use of cryptocurrency for payments. An additional advantage was the availability of self-regulating organizations of the crypto-industry.
The community considered the results of the rating to be predictable: in Switzerland, in 2017, 4 out of 10 of the world’s largest ICOs were conducted. Gibraltar, which was at the second place, is associated with the desire to draw the attention of the crypto-industry to this jurisdiction, where the world’s first legislation for the legalization of ICO was developed.
