The blockchain technology has continued to be massively used in banking processes across the world. In Italy, UniCredit has finally made the first commercial transaction via the blockchain. Using the We.Trade platform, UniCredit has allowed the metal packaging manufacturer ASA Group to buy a tinplate game from its supplier, Steelforce, which was supported by KBC Bank based in Belgium.
Blockchain technology has become very popular not only among a wide variety of companies but also governments of large countries. The Finance Minister of Georgia Mamuka Bakhtadze assures that blockchain can make administrative costs smaller and increase citizens access to the public service.
The Belgian Minister of Justice has proposed to confiscate all cryptocurrencies in circulation and start regulating all transactions with digital currencies. This might mark the end of free use of digital currencies in Belgium.
