A National Blockchain Strategy is Being Developed by the Maltese Government
Malta’s government is reportedly on the cusp of embracing blockchain through the adoption of a national strategy focused on the tech.
Malta Today reports that Prime Minister Joseph Muscat, during a speech this week, said that Malta’s Cabinet had approved the first draft of a “national strategy to promote blockchain”, though what the particulars of that policy may be remains to be seen.
Muscat, the paper said, is planning to release the strategy for public comment in the near future.
Muscat also indicated that Malta’s health industry may also utilize blockchain.
The prime minister went on to say:
“This is not just about bitcoin, and I also look forward to seeing blockchain technology implemented in the Lands Registry and the national health registries.
