The family office behind HedgeBlock has been operating successfully in Switzerland since 1991 and it became a natural choice to capitalise on this market expertise and long standing local partnerships to incorporate HedgeBlock.

Why Switzerland?

Switzerland is the most decentralized country in the world. It contains a total of 26 cantons (similar to the states in the USA) that all have a huge amount of power. In addition, Swiss citizens are asked to vote several times a year for certain national initiatives and referendums. That is very similar to how many Blockchain communities are organized – and Switzerland provides the best environment to create a home for such communities and companies.

Since April 26, 2018, there are new regulatory suggestions that were presented by the Blockchain Task Force to the Federal Councillor Johann N. Schneider-Ammann. The Blockchain Task Force is backed by the Swiss government and is a selection of around 50 representatives from science, business and politics in Switzerland that are jointly interested in making Blockchain technologies successful globally, through Switzerland.
