Both the luminaries will be sharing the stage and speaking with the participants about the vision and mission of Malta to make it the ‘blockchain island’. The Mediterranean country has already taken a number of steps to make itself conducive to the blockchain and cryptocurrency market.

“DELTASummit will serve as the ideal platform to showcase how far Malta has gone in its drive to become an innovation pioneer. Speaking of Malta as a pioneer of innovation was something unheard of. However, this administration made it its mission to embrace and boost innovation and to do so, embracing new technology is key. As a government, we looked into regulating the Blockchain industry by providing legal certainty based on three main principles; market stability, market integrity and consumer protection while making sure not to stifle innovation,” Silvio Schembri wrote in an article on Malta Independent.

“The DELTA Summit will expose the innovative legislation and opportunities not only to the locals currently residing in Malta but to the global community. Malta will firmly establish itself as the innovator and as the ideal space for companies that operate within this space to operate from here. The Delta Summit will celebrate DLT technology, the legal platform Malta’s government is providing and it will unleash the Blockchain Revolution with Malta at the forefront,” he added.

The Summit is expected to host over 35 industry leaders from across the world including Okex Chief Risk Officer Tim Byun and venture capitalist Tim Draper. The event will also serve as an opportunity for those who have an innovative idea. The start up founders can pitch their ideas in front of the investors and might get the necessary push for their initiative. As per reports, more than 1500 delegates are expected to be a part of the event which will serve as a platform for sharing ideas and insights about the blockchain industry.
