Joseph Muscat, the Prime Minister of Malta, announced during an interview on Radio One that all the rent contracts in Malta will be registered on the blockchain.

“We will now be showing people the added value of this technology through applying it to something which they will use in their daily lives. This shows how the digital transformation will affect their lives.”
This is the latest positive step taken by Malta, which is fondly known as the “blockchain island.” Back in July 2018, they released a relaxed regulatory framework favorable to distributed ledger technologies. This combined with an educated workforce and E.U. membership has made Malta a hub of blockchain experimentation.
