Malta, 15 November 2018: Chain Accelerator, Europe’s first accelerator for blockchain startups, today announces the opening of an office in Malta in partnership with chiliZ and the chiliZ Blockchain Campus. The move forms part of a reciprocal relationship whereby Chain Accelerator clients can use the facilities of the Campus when in Malta, and Campus clients can use Chain Accelerator’s facilities when in Paris.
The chiliZ Blockchain Campus is a new fintech epicenter in Malta, that will house some of the world’s largest blockchain companies in a unique cluster in order to grow the blockchain ecosystem locally and globally. A one-stop-shop, think tank, and ICO pitch centre, the state-of-the-art space includes an executive floor with meeting rooms and a sky bar reception area, as well as the use of a fully-equipped TV studio with live-streaming facilities.
As part of a move to cover the key geographic areas in blockchain development, Chain Accelerator sees Malta as a key strategic player within the global blockchain network. Dubbed ‘the Blockchain Island’, Malta has attracted some of the biggest players in the global trading market, including Binance and OKEx in the last few months. In addition, the Maltese Parliament has recently approved three bills which put the country at the forefront of this revolution.
Nicolas Cantu, co-founder of Chain Accelerator, said: “The chiliZ Blockchain Campus is an industry hub, connecting some of the biggest players from both Asia and Europe, as well as other emerging blockchain start-ups. Malta is leading the adoption of cryptocurrencies in the EU and proposes a regulatory framework around Distributed Ledger Technology.”
Alexandre Dreyfus, CEO of the chiliZ Blockchain Campus said: “We are very excited to be partnering with Chain Accelerator, to develop the international network of the chiliZ Blockchain Campus. As a European gateway for Asian organisations in particular, the partnership marks the first step in our plans to build a collaborative network with blockchain incubators all over the world.”
