One of blockchain leaders in Europe
Nowadays, all the European countries admit the power of blockchain and are ready to investigate and integrate it. There are participants of a blockchain consortium HyperLedger and an international fintech consortium R3 as well as state initiatives operating in the region. Slovenia is one of the most active participants of this process: the country has developed a strategy of digital society development Digital Slovenia 2020, including an initiative Blockchain Slovenia.
