Crypto Valley


Crypto Valley is the name coined for the forward-thinking region that spans from the canton and city of Zug, Switzerland to Lichtenstein.


From its favorable tax laws, legal stability, a penchant for experimentation, the crypto community has found a natural home in the region. 


Even before the launch of Bitcoin, the region has welcomed many multinational companies for the same reasons.


With a tradition of financial prestige and a growing network of legal service providers, the emergent blockchain movement quickly caught on to these advantages too. Both Switzerland and Liechtenstein have since enjoyed thriving economies founded on cutting-edge ideas. 

With over 800 prominent technology projects based in the Crypto Valley, this legacy of innovation will be carried on long into the future.
