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.”

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.
