Top Blockchain Startups in Switzerland’s Crypto Valley

Cryptocurrencies and crypto-related technology have been one of the trending areas in terms of investments and entrepreneurial activity. However, the development of this technology has somehow been constrained to certain key hubs, namely New York, Malta, Silicon Valley, Singapore, Gibraltar, and Switzerland.

It’s the last country on this list that we’ll be exploring in this article: Switzerland. We have seen how Switzerland has come to be counted among the top locations in the world for blockchain companies in recent years. This, in turn, has led to different kinds of business models being explored in the country. Crypto Valley, which lies between Zurich and Zug in Switzerland, is now home to numerous companies and organizations in the blockchain sector. It stands to reason that startups choose to come to Switzerland mainly because of legal certainty, top-notch infrastructure, and of course, the Valley’s FinTech ecosystem that seems to be going from strength to strength.
