Blockchain, Cryptocurrency & ICOs

Since the industrial revolutions, leaps in technological innovation have radically changed the way the world works. 2018 has seen the culmination of what many limitedly refer to as the Blockchain Revolution. Indeed the reality is much greater. We have seen the rise, and fall… and rise of crypto currencies; a blockchain tour de force that is proving its unparalleled use across public and private sectors; and the laying of the groundwork for the rise of Artificial Intelligence and the Internet of Things.

These recent ground-breaking innovations bring with them the need for an equally innovative legal framework that must bring with it the ability to foster growth and innovation, whilst affording protection to public and private stakeholders. Corrieri Cilia is pleased to see that Malta has been at the forefront of introducing legislation that is aimed at fostering technological innovation whilst at the same time providing legal certainty in a sector that is complex, ever-changing, and open to abuse if left un-checked.

At the core of our principles is the understanding that the world’s legal systems must evolve alongside technological innovation. To this extent, Corrieri Cilia provides assistance in the fields of ICOs, ITOs, Blockchain businesses, offering advice on structuring, mandatory regulation, voluntary recognition, and related tax, legal & business advisory.
