Being the first country in the world, Malta has worked its way towards a regulatory framework that allows financial innovation to flourish while protecting individuals, business & financial institutions.
Fintech & DLT Services
Almost everyone has heard of Bitcoin, but that is only one type of Virtual Financial Asset (or VFA) among many within the ever-evolving Fintech industry. The core invention is a Distributed Ledger Technology (or DLT), a database shared and managed by multiple participants.
It is this technology that has made cryptocurrencies possible. Its underlying data structure, called Blockchain, is held in a series of sequentially encrypted blocks.
Blockchain and DLT have been around for many years. Combining the two concepts, however, has paved the way towards creating a tamper-resistant computer system that can be applied to a wide range of practical problems, as well as create an entire new set of financial products and business models.
