Momentum Protocol Zug Private Event Weekend Update

Momentum Protocol Events

Momentum Protocol Zug Private Event Weekend Update! As we wrote earlier, on the 13th and 14th of August, we will be hosting the first part of our private event program for project participants, token buyers and advisors in Zug, Switzerland.

In 2016, Zug started allowing Bitcoin (BTC) payments for certain municipality services and this Juli the Zug municipality successfully completed a trial of blockchain-based voting.

Zug is home to “Crypto Valley,” a cluster of companies and foundations. Over the years cryptocurrencies and crypto technology have become one of fastest growing fields of investment and entrepreneurial, with billions invested in the sector.

By cutting out middlemen and decentralizing services, crypto technology – also known as distributed ledger technology or blockchain – drives efficiencies in existing businesses and creates new business opportunities.

The development of the technology is clustered around the following key hubs: Silicon Valley, New York, Malta, Gibraltar, Singapore and Switzerland.

Because of Crypto Valley and Switzerlands’s tax-free policy for crypto investors, the country is the number one most blockchain-friendly country in Europe.
