MALTA, 31st OCTOBER 2018

Representatives from Secure Trading Group’s acquiring bank – acquiring.com – will be meeting industry leaders this week at the Malta Blockchain Summit, an internationally-renowned expo on Blockchain, AI, Big Data, Quantum Technology and IoT.

Malta, dubbed the world’s first ‘Blockchain Island’, has recently passed three sets of ground-breaking legislation to make it the very first country to officially regulate cryptocurrencies. The legislation will come into effect on 1st November, coinciding with The Blockchain Summit on the 1st and 2nd. The event is fully-endorsed by the Maltese government and will feature 5000 delegates and world-class speakers, and 300 exhibitors and sponsors.

The Blockchain Summit will be a hive of activity for cryptocurrency companies looking to connect with innovative and experienced payments partners to help them profit from the new laws in Malta. Licensed, Malta-based acquirers such as acquiring.com will help cryptocurrency companies to reap the benefits of the new legislation by meeting customer demand for convenient and quick payment methods. Partnering with the right Malta-based acquirer in the evolving landscape of regulated cryptocurrency payments will be critical in providing customers with safe and experienced acquiring that is paramount in this time of flux.
