On April 4, 2018, our company will host Berlin’s first Blockchain & Bitcoin Conference Germany, an event dedicated to the development of the blockchain technology, topical trends in the cryptocurrency market, and ICO projects.
Smile-Expo invites all cryptocurrency investors, representatives of blockchain startups, developers, marketers, lawmakers, lawyers, financiers, and consultants working in the field of cryptocurrencies and ICO.
Crypto empire in Europe
While Switzerland is known as a crypto valley, Germany acquired the name of a crypto empire.
On February 27, 2018, the Ministry of Finance of Germany signed a decree recognizing Bitcoin as a payment means. Unlike the USA, the authority opted not to apply the capital outflow tax to purchases made with the cryptocurrency. Instead, value added tax will be charged just as in case of fiat money operations.
By the number of blockchain projects, Germany trails only China, the USA, and the UK. The first startups that were related to distributed ledgers emerged back in 2008. Berlin is considered a center for blockchain developments, although Frankfurt and Munich also show great interest in the technology.
In summer of 2017, the German Parliament announced the creation of Blockchain Bundesverband, an association whose main mission is to promote the decentralized infrastructure.
