He holds a MSc in "Software Project Management" with the University of Aberdeen, a "MIT Fintech Innovation: Future Commerce" certificate with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and an "Oxford Blockchain Strategy Programme" certificate with the Saïd Business School at the University of Oxford.
When the Government of Malta announced the launch of a legal framework for Blockchain technologies on February the 16th, 2018, it was a major goal for me, personally. It represents the culmination of almost twenty months of work.
This is a brief recollection of the major of how Malta’s Blockchain strategy came to be and how it unrolled to this event.
