At the beginning of the year, Malta's Prime Minister, Joseph Muscat, said that Europe should become a “bitcoin continent”, and Malta could turn into a European analogue of the “Silicon Valley”, the center for the new technologies development. Cryptocurrency and the blockchain are also whole-heartedly approved by other members of the Maltese government. Among them are Silvio Schembri, Malta’s Parliamentary Secretary for Digital Economy, and Joseph Cuschieri, Executive Chairman of the Malta Gaming Authority (MGA).
