The term Crypto Valley has gained currency in recent years, describing a region in Switzerland attractive to international blockchain companies. It has become the global hot-spot and forerunner of a technological and entrepreneurial revolution.
Due to its stability, its openness and appeal to multinational corporations and financial service providers, Switzerland and Crypto Valley have been seen by global blockchain companies as the ideal base for operations following Bitcoin’s launch of the cryptocurrency movement in 2009. Ethereum then laid the first building blocks for today’s flourishing blockchain ecosystem when operations out of Zug were launched in 2013.
Since then hundreds of crypto projects have set up operations in Crypto Valley. Today over 600 blockchain-related companies are domiciled in Switzerland.
Lakeside Partners, the founder of CV VC, has screened over 1,000 projects over the past 18 months, many of them conducting their ICO thereafter. The partnership has been investing in the ecosystem through the launch of a range of different projects:
