A successful meeting with the European Parliament
In a press release on October 11th, 2018 the European Blockchain Foundation visited the European Parliament together with partners from Tradebits Ecosystem and Cecil Alliance Foundation. This was in order to meet with one of the members of the European Parliament Caroline Nagtegaal, which aimed to have a discussion on the challenges and opportunities regarding regulations that can help growing projects move forward and join the growing Blockchain technology market.
The Chairman of the EBF Mr. Bart Brands made a statement saying that:
“Clear but liberal regulations regarding bank accounts, financial security can help companies thrive and bring jobs and investments to Europe and strengthen the technological advancements to Europe.”
