New Swiss blockchain law set to attract investors, entrepreneurs

22 January 2021

Switzerland will be among the first countries in the world to introduce a new, modern legislation applying to blockchain and distributed ledger technology (DLT) in 2021. Existing rules will be adapted to take into account the crypto assets sphere’s recent and rapid developments. These amendments not only increase the legal certainty for investors. They also remove barriers for DLT-based applications and reduce the risk of abuse. This should attract even more entrepreneurs and investors to the Swiss crypto sector.
