Are Countries Finally Outgrowing Their Fear of Blockchain?

Earlier in the week, Swisscom and Swiss Post, the Switzerland government-controlled telecommunications and postal services providers, respectively, announced the launch of a 100 per cent Swiss infrastructure for blockchain networks. The aim of the initiative is to provide end-to-end blockchain related services for the Swiss citizens and enterprises, ranging from advisory, development, project management, infrastructure, to blockchain-as-a-service (BaaS). The service even includes an academy for teaching blockchain. A wholesome package to promote blockchain adoption in the country.

Switzerland is not the first country to offer a national blockchain program. Australia, Malta, Cyprus, the United Arab Emirates, Ireland, Russia, Brazil, China and India, to name a few, have announced a slew of programs.
