The Canton of Zug is a region that is gradually attracting major crypto technology players and has become known as Crypto Valley. Several major blockchain and bitcoin companies are located in Zug such as the Ethereum Foundation using the swiss experience on fintech and cybersecurity.
With this center Geneva–based WISeKey aims to deploy a trusted blockchain as a service platform. Starting from the third quarter the Center will offer a Platform to US based enterprises, facilitating the rapid adaptation of on-board blockchain based solutions and services.
