What is Crypto Valley?

Crypto Valley is an ecosystem centered in and around the Swiss canton of Zug with active connections to international centers of blockchain innovation in London, Singapore, Silicon Valley and New York.

Thanks to its business-friendly regulatory framework, deep talent pool and sophisticated infrastructure, Crypto Valley is quickly becoming a global center where emerging cryptographic, blockchain and other distributed ledger technologies and businesses can thrive in a safe, supportive, and vibrant environment. It has already attracted dozens of leading cryptographic companies and organizations, including Ethereum, Monetas, Bitcoin Suisse, Xapo, ShapeShift, ConsenSys, and Tezos.

The Crypto Valley Association has been set up to foster the growth of this ecosystem. We drive innovation through collaboration and partnerships with entrepreneurs, startups, investors, corporates, educational institutions, service providers, and government bodies.

Ushered in by the invention of Bitcoin in 2009, the cryptographic technologies ecosystem is growing rapidly. From cryptocurrencies, blockchains, and distributed ledgers to decentralized transaction platforms, commercial property registries, digital identities, secure electronic voting systems, and the internet of things — a myriad of technologies is emerging that enable new kinds of digital property, and the secure and efficient exchange of digital assets.
