Junior Minister for Financial Services, Digital Economy and Innovation Silvio Schembri welcomed Investment Evolution’s ongoing investment plans in Malta and the growing blockchain ecosystem and infrastructure. “Since the enactment of the 3 Bills into law, Malta is increasingly becoming a natural choice amongst companies within the blockchain and crypto sphere and this is due to the legal certainty Malta provides to the new emergent industry. I look forward to working with IEC and to seeing the company applying all the necessary liscencee according to the regulatory requirements,” said Schembri while thanking IEC for choosing to be part of Malta’s Blockchain Community.  Silvio Schembri added that in few weeks time Malta will demonstrate its remarkable achievements in this sector. “This will take place between 3rd-5th October during DELTA Summit, Maltese Government official Blockchain event and I invite companies within this sphere to be part of DELTA Summit which will celebrate Malta, as a leader in DLT Regulation,” said Schembri.

Paul Mathieson, IEC Ltd’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, said, “We are very excited to have launched our IECX global cryptocurrency exchange in Malta, the world’s leading regulated crypto and fintech jurisdiction. Our team conducted extensive research which included visiting many other potential jurisdictions across the globe and determined Malta was the standout location for our cryptocurrency exchange, with the added benefit of Malta being a European Union member. Three recent Malta government bills, passed into law in July, provide a strong regulatory framework that will support the blockchain industry and provides certainty for companies like IECX. We thank the Malta Prime Minister, Joseph Muscat, and the Junior Minister for Financial Services, Digital Economy and Innovation within the Office of the Prime Minister, Silvio Schembri, for their vision and leadership in transforming Malta into the world’s first and only blockchain island. We look forward to working closely with the Government of Malta and being a key part of the expected exponential blockchain industry growth in Malta over the coming years.”
