Blockchain & Bitcoin Conference Gibraltar: how to work under changing legislation

On February 8, 2018, Smile-Expo will host Blockchain & Bitcoin Conference Gibraltar. This is the conference dedicated to cryptocurrencies, blockchain and ICO.

BBC Gibraltar is part of the Blockchain & Bitcoin Conference series, planned for 2018. It covers more than 20 countries, and we believe all venues are united by the common feature: these are the countries aiming at the development and implementation of blockchain and its derivatives.

Why Gibraltar?

Gibraltar is a low-tax offshore jurisdiction: entrepreneurs pay only income tax. Therefore, many European and local blockchain companies are registered here, including:

Covesting – cryptocurrency trading platform;

ZODIAQ – the first crypto bank with an original banking license;

XAPO – Bitcoin wallet.

Gibraltar has Gibraltar Blockchain Exchange (GBX), dealing with cryptocurrencies. It also features such company as WaveCrest Holdings Limited, a provider of digital payment solutions, cooperating with several startups that issue cryptocurrency payment cards: Wirex, Xapo, TokenCard, BitRush Corp.

2017 brought a new law in Gibraltar: the authorities announced their intention to regulate ICO and activities of the blockchain companies. From January 1, 2018, a new law will come into force in the country, prescribing the rules for carrying out crowdsales. On the same day, new rules for cryptocurrency exchanges, assets, holdings and other forms of ownership, rights or interests related to blockchain, as well as for investment services came into effect. In particular, the law specifies that cryptocurrency exchanges must obtain state licenses.

Attendees of Blockchain & Bitcoin Conference Gibraltar

Organizers invite businesspeople, investors, developers, financiers, traders, as well as lawyers, consultants and marketers, whose activities are related to blockchain. The conference will bring together over 200 participants.

Speakers, topics and activities

Blockchain & Bitcoin Conference Gibraltar will feature 15 speakers from around the world. They are specialists in blockchain developments, cryptocurrency investments and legislation in the field of virtual currencies and ICO. Among the topics to be highlighted are the laws on blockchain and cryptocurrencies in Gibraltar and around the world; application of blockchain in various sectors (banking, government, insurance, medicine); blockchain in the context of the global economy.

In addition to the reports, participants will be able to enjoy an exhibition of blockchain innovations, a pitch-session of exhibitors and a panel discussion involving several experts on the regulation of blockchain and ICO.
