But just becasue they do not have enough capitalization on their projects, the area of this country cant grow as fast as it has to, any way blockchain is expanding and it gives the oportunity to Slovenia and other simillar places to get closer to this ambitious vision.

Vasja Veber (COO and co-founder of Viberate) let us know that just because of Slovenia is a small country, he had a lot of facillities to go trough goverment and present usefull ideas to ministers. This will not happen in other bigger countries like US or UK.
During the meeting the Blockchain Alliance CEE was presented. The intention is to enable a greater penetration into the new markets. In this way, Slovenia would be presented as a global blockchain destination. Additionally, this alliance will also help spreading knowledge about blockchain technology in the country and educate other companies about blockchain.
“The Slovenian blockchain companies are already closely cooperating and do not compete with each other. We constantly assist each other in business development, share business contacts and open doors to each other,” said Matej Gregorčič, General Director and co-founder of Viberate.
