Meetups & Events

BC Blockchain Forum has hosted and supported a number of great events over the past few years.

BLOCKFORUM Inaugural Event: October 16th, 2017

We were delighted to host our special guests Thomas Linder (MME) and Lukas Sieber (Greater Zurich economic agency) from Switzerland at our inaugural event, Oct 16th, 2017 . They addressed how Switzerland has become a friendly business and regulatory landscape that is arguably the leading country hosting blockchain ventures and TGEs (including Ethereum, a venture that originated in Canada).

Thomas Linder has broad experience in advising Swiss and foreign companies in international tax matters. He is particularly specialized in leading inter-disciplinary projects in the context of acquisitions, corporate restructurings, and migrations and has in-depth knowledge in cross-border transactions and tax accounting.

He specializes in blockchain and TGEs (token generated events), also called ICOs. He talked about how Blockchain technology can design digital information units that contain elements of a property right (according to civil law concepts) to which an owner has direct and exclusive access that can be defended against third parties (right in rem).

Lukas Sieber helps US businesses set up & grow in Switzerland’s economic and innovation center, the Greater Zurich Area (GZA).

Based in New York City, he leads a team of dedicated professionals based in various locations across the US. They assure a confidential and free advisory service, assisting companies in evaluating the GZA region for their expansion and relocation projects.

Lukas share valuable jurisdictional lessons learnt from the Switzerland and Zug evolution as Crypto Valley. His provided  examples of specifically a friendly business and regulatory environment contributed to success.
