3. Utilization of Blockchain Technology
So how long will it take for blockchain technology to become widely used in our society? Experts predict that it will take more than five years for blockchain technology to peak in most industries. Gartner, a U.S. IT market research and consulting firm, said in its 2017 Blockchain Heap Cycle report that the market and public interest in blockchain-related technologies such as distributed ledgers, virtual currency wallets and consensus algorithms are at its peak. In addition, most IT consulting agencies predict that blockchain technology will reach the peak of innovation in two to three years, and be commercialized in five to 10 years, so that stable services can be delivered around 2025. Among the areas where blockchain technology can be used especially effectively are financial areas such as banks and investment services, health care including insurance and health care, logistics and distribution sectors and public services.

[CUBE NEWS] The Cryptocurrency Market Attracting the Attention of Governments around the World

In addition to the cryptocurrency business plans of global corporations that are being announced recently, the interest in cryptocurrency is increasing in various governments around the world such as Hong Kong, France, Singapore, and Japan.

First, in contrast to the passive United States, France is approaching strategically for the development of block chains and cryptocurrency. Recently, France is actively taking ICO into the system. The French government approved the "Action Plan for Business Growth and Transformation (PACTE)" legislation that allowed ICOs in September 2018, and the new legislation contains a significant easing of regulation to allow small-medium enterprises to grow.

 The Hong Kong Financial Futures Commission (SFC) has announced the issuance of licenses to Crypto Fund management companies. It is a showing of willingness to take the crypto fund into the system and manage it. As future digital assets become a new asset class, experts say that Hong Kong could become a financial hub for digital assets.

In addition to France and Hong Kong, Switzerland, Malta and Singapore are also in the process of establishing systems and laws aimed at leading digital assets. Switzerland, in particular, has developed a "Crypto Valley" and provided crypto instructions that could greatly reduce the tax burden on tenant companies.

 About this situation, Richard Biggs, CEO of Cube, said, "It is impressive that governments around the world are easing regulations and actively immersing themselves in the cryptocurrency industry. In addition to the countries mentioned, I would expect to see a positive reactions and related industrial policies from many other governments, so that Cube will be able to continue the race successfully."

[세계 각 정부의 주목을 받고 있는 암호화폐 시장]

최근 속속 발표되고 있는 대기업들의 암호화폐 사업 계획과 더불어 홍콩·프랑스·싱가포르·일본 등 세계 곳곳의 여러 정부들에서도 암호화폐에 대한 관심이 늘고 있습니다.

먼저 소극적인 미국과 대조적으로 블록체인과 암호화폐 육성을 위해 전략적으로 다가선 프랑스의 사례를 들 수 있겠는데요. 최근 프랑스는 ICO를 적극적으로 제도권으로 끌어들이고 있습니다. 프랑스 정부는 2018 9 ICO를 허용하는 내용을 담은 '기업의 성장과 전환을 위한 행동계획(PACTE)' 법안을 승인했고, 새 법은 중소기업이 성장할 수 있도록 규제를 대폭 완화하는 내용이 담겨있다고 하죠.

홍콩 금융선물위원회(SFC)는 크립토펀드 운용사들에게 라이선스를 발급한다고 발표했습니다. 크립토펀드를 제도권으로 끌어들여서 관리하겠다는 의지를 보인 것인데요. 향후 디지털 자산이 새로운 자산군으로 자리잡으면 홍콩은 디지털 자산의 금융허브가 될 수 있을 것이라고 전문가들은 분석하고 있습니다.

프랑스와 홍콩 외에도 스위스와 몰타, 싱가포르 역시 등도 디지털 자산 선도국을 목표로 제도와 법을 정비하고 있는데요. 특히 스위스는 '크립토밸리' 주크를 육성하고 암호화폐 관련 지침을 제공해 입주기업들의 세금을 대폭 감면해주는 혜택을 제공했다고 하네요.

이런 현상에 대해 큐브의 리처드 빅스 대표는 "세계 곳곳에서 정부가 규제를 완화하고 적극적으로 암호화폐 산업에 발을 담그는 모습이 인상적이다" "영국뿐만 아니라 큐브 오토 홀더들이 주로 모여있는 한국까지 정부의 긍정적인 반응과 관련 산업 정책을 펼쳐 큐브 또한 승승장구할 수 있는 계기가 마련되면 좋겠다"고 소감을 전했습니다
