Gibraltar is a centre of excellence for the blockchain and wider Fintech space for new businesses starting up in this fast-moving sector.
With a sound regulatory environment that welcomes innovation together with an accessible and forward-thinking regulator, Gibraltar is a jurisdiction that many Fintech businesses (including blockchain start-ups, multi-currency digital wallet providers, e-money institutions and innovative payment service providers) are either setting up operations in or keeping a close eye on. Gibraltar’s emergence as a leader in this space has been accelerated by the implementation by the Gibraltar Government of a specific DLT Provider regulatory environment for financial services conducted using Distributed Ledger Technology.
ISOLAS DLT team is headed by Joey Garcia, a leading global thought leader in the legal blockchain space who co-chaired the Government of Gibraltar’s cryptocurrency working group. Joey Garcia was recently recognised as one of only 12 global leading individuals in legal Blockchain by Chambers & Partners. He has been involved in advising a number of blockchain startups and businesses crossing over from the blockchain into the financial services space and is one of the thought leaders involved with the Fintech think tank established by the firm, thinkFintech.gi.
