Why Zug is Crypto Valley
Zug, Switzerland is looking to be a hub of innovation for blockchain and fintech businesses, and it has already made several efforts to make that goal a reality. Zug has one of the best blockchain and digital currency regulatory frameworks. Its government realized that it needed to modernize existing legislation to accommodate digital assets—so they did just that.
The Swiss parliament approved several amendments to existing legislation so that the laws did a better job of encompassing the blockchain and digital currency industry. The three most significant amendments were regarding tokenization, digital asset exchanges, and bankruptcy laws.
For nascent industries to thrive, regulatory clarity is a must, and Zug is one of the only locations that provide it.
Zug is one of the most forward-thinking locations in the world when it comes to digital currency and even announced that it will begin accepting digital currencies including for tax payments beginning in February 2021.
