Why Malta?

On June 26th, 2018 Maltese Parliament approved three distributed ledger technology and crypto-related bills. This was a first for the world and strengthened OTC Desks decision to expand in Malta.

The approved bills include the Innovative Technology Arrangements and Services Bill, the Virtual Financial Assets Bill, and the Malta Digital Innovation Authority Bill. The first two bills provide for the regulation of digital ledger technologies – of which blockchain is one type – and virtual financial assets in Malta under the supervision of the Malta Digital Innovation Authority.

The Malta Digital Innovation Authority Bill establishes the organization with the goal to “promote consistent principles for the development of visions, skills, and other qualities relating to technology innovation” as well as support regulations of the sector.
