A peek behind the scenes of the “Crypto Nation Switzerland”
THE DIGITAL RE-INVENTION OF MONEY
According to the historian and bestseller author Yuval Noah Harari money is the most important human invention. Cryptocurrencies are newly invented money. Blockchain shall enable transfer of valuables and ensure online identities. The token economy is about building distributed trust. Will Switzerland be leading this money revolution?
BLOCKCHAIN BOOM IN SWITZERLAND
A small country like Switzerland is spearheading the re-invention of money. Even though many Swiss had not heard of bitcoin, blockchain or an initial coin offering (ICO) until very recently, Switzerland experienced an ICO boom in 2017. Switzerland also coined the term «Crypto Valley» that nowadays stretches from Zug to Zurich. The «Crypto Valley» is making news globally.
The underlying blockchain technology is more than just digital money. In the Dezentrum think tank we encounter the first autonomous and smart contract ruled satellite. Procivis in contrast provides electronic identities for Rohingya refugees. And Alpine Mining in Wallis mine cryptocurrencies with cheap hydropower.
Who are these coders, entrepreneurs, visionaries and investors who are engaged in this highly active community? Where does this enthusiasm for new ideas and business models stem from? Is this the end for banks or is it about the democratization of finance? Why are senior members of finance such as Rainer Marc Frei, Jorge Paulo Leeman and the Princely Family of Liechtenstein interested in this community?
