Another cryptocurrency related firm Neufund which is a blockchain based equity fundraising platform has announced its plans to partner with the Malta government in actualizing its plans for a blockchain ecosystem in the country.

Cryptocurrency, creating a whole new market

The firm would set up a physical address in Malta so as to bring its European technical knowledge and a team of expert to assist in developing the Maltese blockchain sector.

Why speaking concerning the move by Neufund, Hon. Joseph Muscat, Prime Minister of Malta, in a political address expressed his belief that the cryptocurrency sector would create an entirely new market structure globally. He said, Millions of people already attribute value to virtual currencies, which has created an entirely new market. The concept sounds confusing right now, but I have no doubt that it will form the base of a new economy in the future. Just as we attribute value to pieces of paper, so too will future generations attribute value to electronic storage systems.”
