Italy is going to join the European Blockchain Partnership, according to the representative of the country’s parliament Mirella Liuzzi.
According to Liuzzi, the partnership - cooperation of 26 EU countries - will be signed by the Minister of Economic Development, Labor and Social Policy Luigi Di Mayo on September 28 in Brussels.
Liuzzi also noted that the government will soon find experts in the field to develop a development strategy for the sector related to the crypto currency.
The European Blockchain Partnership was created in April 2018 to serve as a means of cooperation between the EU member states.
First 22 countries joined it, then the organization spread to 26 members, as it was joined by Greece, Romania, Denmark and Cyprus.
Earlier in June, the southern city of Naples launched a focus group, supported by the local mayor, to promote Blockchain projects and the Initial Offer of Coins (ICO).
Later, the Southern region, constantly trying to expand its autonomy, announced that it was ready to launch its own crypto currency.
In addition, the Italian football club “Juventus” - one of the most famous football clubs in the country - plans to launch its own “fan token” in partnership with the blockchain platform.
