Slovenia is neither the largest, nor the most developed country in Europe. When it comes to cryptocurrency investment, however, Slovenia is one of the leading countries in Europe, as well as the rest of the world.
The thing that started out as an innocent curiosity project for cryptocurrency has evolved into a hub for blockchain development. This has largely contributed to Slovenia becoming one of the leaders in cryptocurrency investment. The support of the Government of Slovenia certainly helps. In February, representatives of the Government of Slovenia held a meeting with several “blockchain” startups. The Government was represented by the Prime Minister Miro Cerar and the Minister of Economic Development and Technology of Slovenia, Zdravko Pochivalishek.
“The government is aware of Slovenia’s involvement in the global flows, and with our vision of modernisation and digitalisation promotion in all areas, we are bringing to the fore the introduction of new technologies. We thus recognize blockchain technology as an exceptional opportunity: in this respect, Slovenia is at the forefront and one of the most recognized blockchain destinations in Europe.” Prime Minister Miro Cerar said
The Slovenian blockchain community is one of the most engaging in the world. Slovenia also has one of the largest stock exchanges for cryptocurrency in the world, or the largest in Europe. One of the reasons for this is that the companies closely cooperate, and are therefore developing at an increased rate.
“The Slovenian blockchain companies are already closely cooperating and do not compete with each other. We constantly assist each other in business development, share business contacts and open doors to each other,” said Matej Gregorchich, General Director and co-founder of Viberate.
