Lithuania is at the forefront of the blockchain revolution with Lithuania-based projects attracting 10% of all global ICO investments. Successful ICO’s such as BitDegree, Monetha, Bankera, Lympo, WePower, carVertical are based here. Being the EU’s only hub for the digital ledger it is a gateway for global blockchain industry. Bank of Lithuania is the first to create and launch (in 2019) a regulatory and technological sandbox platform-service – LBChain – for domestic and foreign companies to develop and test their blockchain-based solutions.
