马耳他政府计划出台国家级区块链战略

4月20日,马耳他总理约瑟夫·穆斯卡特(Joseph Muscat) 在每周例行发言中表示,马耳他内阁已经批准了“促进区块链发展的国家战略”的首份草案,尽管该政策的细节可能还有待披露。草案中提到,马斯喀特计划在不久的将来发布公众意见征询策略。

穆斯卡特总理表示,马耳他政府可能会将区块链技术应用于土地登记流程—这一概念在其他政府已经开始实施。穆斯卡特也表示,马耳他的卫生行业也可能采用区块链技术。

鉴于穆斯卡特自己以前的评论,此次建议得到马耳他的强烈赞同并不奇怪。 二月下旬在布鲁塞尔举行的一次会议上,穆斯卡特总理吁欧盟领导人接受加密货币,并对这项技术提供宽松的监管政策。

据马耳他20号的报道称,穆斯卡特在发言中再次提到这一点,他说欧盟不应该对加密货币回避,而要对此项技术采取尽早和积极的态度。

“我们必须处在迎接这一关键创新技术的前沿,我们不能等其他国家行动起来后再去复制它们的模式,”穆斯卡特说,“我们一定要成为别国复制的对象。”

 

Malta’s government is reportedly on the cusp of embracing blockchain through the adoption of a national strategy focused on the tech.

Malta Today reports that Prime Minister Joseph Muscat, during a speech this week, said that Malta’s Cabinet had approved the first draft of a “national strategy to promote blockchain”, though what the particulars of that policy may be remains to be seen. Muscat, the paper said, is planning to release the strategy for public comment in the near future.

He did, however, suggest that Malta might look to apply the tech to its land registry process – a concept other governments have begun embracing. Muscat also indicated that Malta’s health industry may also utilize blockchain.

The prime minister went on to say:

"This is not just about bitcoin, and I also look forward to seeing blockchain technology implemented in the Lands Registry and the national health registries. Malta can be a global trail-blazer in this regard."

A strong endorsement from Malta wouldn’t be that surprising, given past comments from Muscat himself. In late February, when addressing a conference in Brussels, Muscat called on EU leaders to embrace cryptocurrencies and support accommodative regulatory approaches to the tech.

According to Malta Today, Muscat returned to that point during his speech, saying that the EU shouldn’t shy away from taking an early – and positive – stance on cryptocurrencies.

"We must be on the frontline in embracing this crucial innovation, and we cannot just wait for others to take action and copy them," said Muscat. "We must be the ones that others copy."
