It’s also worth mentioning the role that Estonia’s government had at the start of the pandemic, as a designated “leading education…
There is a significant amount of caution for the European VC market heading into Q3’20. Investors have slowed the pace of deal-making considerably, taking more time to conduct due diligence and commit funds — which will likely have an impact on both the number of VC deals and the level of investment in the region. Given current challenges, there is expected to be continued downward pressure on valuations — which could prompt some opportunistic investors to look for good deals.
Over the next quarter, VC investors in Europe will continue to assess how consumer behaviours are changing and how these…

The European Union, or EU, plans to incorporate crypto and blockchain technology into its main processes by 2024.
Over the next four years, the economic union aims to firm up fresh regulations that will promote blockchain and digital asset usage for international money transfers, according to internal documents that Reuters reported on Friday.
Finding that almost 80% of its population transacts in paper money, the European Commission, the union’s governing entity, wants to see digital payments become more common, while aiming for immediate transaction times, Reuters explained.
The commission’s reported aims include a desire for increased data access, financial activities…
In late 2019, the world had been taken over by a deadly virus in the blink of an eye. Undergoing the impact of the COVID-19, a lot of industries had been disrupted and stopped, resulting in people rethinking their attitude toward many things in life.

Furthermore, it’s about time to get rid of cash — we have to take a step toward a new quality of life. Meanwhile, the blockchain field has also blossomed, as…
The European Commission will unveil this autumn its long-awaited proposal on cryptocurrencies in order to seize the opportunities brought by these tokens powered by networks of computers: these include lower fees and almost instant transactions. Europe will become the first major jurisdiction to regulate these new means of payment.
In the EU executive’s thinking, new rules won’t scare developers and investors away, but rather the opposite. By becoming the first region to put its house in order, the EU expects to attract a market worth almost $350 billion spread over more than 6,700 digital currencies.
The Commission expects to achieve the holy grail of rule makers: to come up with legislation that will not only protect customers but will also spur innovation by designing a clear framework.

Ritva is developing a performative general-purpose blockchain platform that supports confidential transactions, called RVChain.
The distributed ledger technology has been widely hailed as the breakthrough technology. It has realised a significant number of application scenarios, and improved workflow of many domains. Nonetheless, there remain a few major concerns in adopting and deploying the distributed ledger technology at scale, in particular the throughput scalability and confidentiality protection for transactions.
In our research called RV-Chain, we take advantage of a trusted execution environment to offer confidentiality protection for transactions, and scale the throughput of the network in proportion with the number of network participants by supporting parallel shadow chains. To bring the RV-Chain to fruition, a…

In addition, any participants investing in Ritva are able to take the opportunity to own EUR and EURT.
