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.
