Austria is one of the fastest growing markets for blockchain technology and crypto currencies, flexible policies and political support helping implications of this technology in the country.

Recently, city of Vienna hosted 500 blockchain experts, ranging from science, economy and civil society, in a summit that kicked-off Austria’s ambition to acquire a world leadership role in the implementation of blockchain technology.

Harald Mahrer, Austria’s Conservative Federal Minister of Research, Science and Economy said that “In Europe, Austria already has a leading role in the field of blockchain, having implemented an ambitious roadmap. Now we need to ensure that the next steps are taken and create sandboxes to promote real business applications. Otherwise the competitiveness of our business sector is impeded.”

The ministry says that the main target of the summit is to implement blockchain technology in concrete use cases and make it applicable for various sectors, including tourism, trade, energy, public administration, finance and law.

“The main problems for the practical use of blockchain are not merely technical. The existing regulatory framework in most European countries is not flexible enough for the needs of blockchain applications,” the ministry says.

“Blockchain is more than cryptocurrencies. It offers enormous possibilities for new business ideas. Now it is essential to explore these possibilities without taboos in regulatory sandboxes,” Mahrer says

There is no doubt about the fact that Europe is leader in Crypto currency market funding, according to the latest reports, Europe invested around $1.76 billion in ICO’s in the year 2017, making it the biggest contributor in ICO funding

Europe loves new crypto currencies

currently Switzerland is leading the way in ICO funding within Europe, but it seems like Austria is doing every bit they can to get the blockchain leader title in Europe

$6000 support level for Bitcoin is holding pretty well since Feb 2018, but every time price bounces off from 6K level it marks a lower top

Bitcoin support level is losing its strength day by day, traders expect a nice bounce from this level and strength in the rally to breach the $10000 mark but its not happening and now price is making lower tops every time there is a small rally.

Take a Look at the one week chart of Bitcoin at Bitfinex

According to many Technical analysts, weekly chart is looking scary and they are expecting as massive crash in prices if price breaks below the $6000 level and stays there.

Low volumes 

Another alarming situation for Bitcoin is low volumes, Bitcoin ‘s trading volume has dropped significantly in the last few months , in fact this month has been the lowest in more than 1 year and that shows investors are taking a back seat in this market, institutions are not yet ready to jump into the market and without money from big investors, it is not possible for Bitcoin  to rebound or reach All-Time-High levels in near future.

$6000 support history 

$6K support for Bitcoin started in Feb 2018, when Bitcoin crashed from $12000 to $6000 within few days after a wild crash. But price rebounded once it touched the $6K level and then after that it started making lowers highs (lower tops) and price rejected from $10K level then $9K and then $8K , made it ever so difficult for Bitcoin to rebound, but one thing was there all the way through, $6000 support level, although price broke below this level 1 or 2 times but not for long, price stayed above $6000, but now as the time is passing by it is getting more and more difficult for Bitcoin to keep this level of support as there is massive pressure from the bears and they can take the price down anytime in near future and if that happens, there will be panic in the market and selling pressure can take price down to  $5000 or even $4000 as well, on the other side Bulls must be hoping that $6000 support is protected once again.

Switzerland is on the right track to become a Crypto nation and country is making efforts to allow cryptcocurrencies to fully access conventional banking .

Bitcoin and other crypto currencies has taken a big hit in brutal bear market of 2018 but that’s not stopping Switzerland to allow cryptocurrencies to fully access conventional banking system within the country. Switzerland is currently in progress and drafting rules and regulations for such collaborations.

Heinz Tännler, Swiss expert & finance director of Zug canton, told media earlier that politicians were moving to allow crypto companies to work with banks, adding that Switzerland’s central bank, financial supervisor and federal government “are willing to help”.

He said: “We hope to clarify relationships by the end of the year at the latest.

“Time is pressing, other jurisdictions such as Malta and Singapore are very active and making a lot of effort to attract these companies. The lack of access to bank services is a significant competitive disadvantage.”

“We have to push certain national institutions to resolve this problem quickly and effectively, but that now seems to be going well.”

Blockchain becoming the global phenomenon 

The concept of Blockchain is interesting and attractive for all the countries, many countries may disagree on the existence and usage of cryptocurrencies, but all of them agree with the fact concept of blockchain is not going anywhere and governments can benefit from this technology in various fields, but if you ask any expert of blockchain, he would tell you that success of Blockchain technology has to be linked with existence of crypto currencies, without crypto currencies, and ecosystem can’t exist, many governments around the world are slowly recognizing the fact and Switzerland is definitely on the right track if they allow crypto currencies to work in collaboration with the Banks, because many banks around the world are not allowing crypto currencies to offer services through them, but this initiative will open many doors in that regards.
