Pioneer in Finance Technologies
Switzerland is a country having a sophisticated banking system and a keen interest in fintech innovation. Today, the country has its own “cryptotal” – the city of Zug, where a functioning Blockchain ecosystem was developed and many famous projects such as the Ethereum Foundation, Monetas, Lykke, were founded.
Zug is known for several business accelerators as well as the HSLU-I University, which trains blockchain specialists. You can also pay for goods and services with Bitcoin and exchange it for paper money in one of three Bitcoin ATMs. At the end of July, the vote on the eID system will be based on the distributed ledger in Zug.
In 2018, Procivis Startup successfully tested and implemented the eID solution and a range of eGovernment services. Now users can submit tax returns, register their residence and use passport services with their smartphones.
