“Malta will be the epicentre of the blockchain industry. We invite you to experience this between the 3rd and 5th October at the Delta Summit, the Maltese government’s official blockchain event. Be part of the blockchain island.”
This was stated by Parliamentary Secretary for Financial Services, Digital Economy and Innovation Silvio Schembri while participating in a fireside chat with the American venture investor Tim Draper and Angel Labs founder Tugce Ergul, moderated by Abdalla Kablan.
The Parliamentary Secretary said that the Delta Summit is the Maltese government’s official event and it will serve as a platform to exhibit the work done so far within this sector. During the fireside chat, Silvio Schembri announced that 3 bills—the Malta Digital Innovation Authority Bill, the Virtual Financial Asset Bill, and the Innovation Technological Services Arrangements Bill—are now online and can be accessed. “This puts Malta a step away from becoming the first world jurisdiction to regulate this sector”, said Schembri.
Tim Draper, owner of Draper Associates, hailed the Maltese government’s efforts in this sector. “This is my first time in the blockchain island. Congratulations for the early start and the big lead on other countries. By setting up the regulator you are putting Malta at the top of the list”, said Draper, while encouraging those within the blockchain industry to participate in the Delta Summit.

These efforts have resulted in the establishment of one of the world’s first authorities to regulate this space. Many high-profile speakers have been confirmed and others will be announced in the coming days. The conference has also secured Bloomberg as the official media partner which will be covering the event.
Big companies such as Binance, Okex, Bitfury, Monaco, Cubits, and others have lined up to sponsor the event and 1,000-1,500 attendees are expected.
