In the future, blockchain technology will penetrate into all areas of the Swiss economy. This was reported by a member of the Federal Council of Switzerland Johann Schneider-Ammann.

According to him, currently in Switzerland don’t know much about the new technology, its potential and risks. This is the decisive factor in order to train new blockchain.

Schneider-Ammann emphasized that the government of the country need to support research projects in this area, but also pay attention to the digitalization and technology in schools.

“Switzerland is a world leader in the application of the blockchain. Therefore, we need to continue to keep up with the times. If we succeed, this technology will provide new opportunities, new jobs, new levels of security and prosperity. Life punishes those who are late”, — said the official.

He noted that the country needs to develop regulation in the field of cryptocurrencies, blockchain and ICO.

“A good economic structure does not imply complete freedom of action. Businesses need legal certainty”, he said.

Note that Switzerland has topped the list of most friendly to cryptocurrency Europe. ForkLog previously published an article about why this country is considered the capital of cryptomeria.

We will remind, the Swiss city of Zug this summer will hold a trial municipal vote using blockchain technology.
