Exploring the Future in Crypto Valley and other Global Crypto Hubs

Crypto Explorers offered with Crypto Valley Trip an elite, curated group of passionate and motivated individuals from around the world an opportunity to come together for a 3-4 days immersive learning experience in Zug and Zurich, Switzerland as well as in Liechtenstein.

The purpose of the trips was to collaboratively explore the opportunities and impact of the decentralized future.

The Zug-Zurich region is known as “Crypto Valley” because of its high concentration of blockchain-related organizations based in the area such as pioneers Ethereum, Xapo, and Tezos – who were quickly followed by many others who have already reached unicorn status such as Cardano, Polkadot, Solana and AAVE.

In addition, the business services and legal infrastructure offered by entities such as Bitcoin Suisse and MME have made Zug a reliable launchpad for activities beyond Initial Coin Offerings and Token Generation Events. Zug in particular represents a very forward-thinking municipal government on the issues of crypto currencies and decentralization and serves as an appropriate environment for an immersive group learning experience.

The first Crypto Valley Trip took place in August 2017 with 35 participants from more than 15 countries and a total of five of our exploration trips were hosted there.

The sixth and final event in the original series took place in Singapore in late 2018, taking the total size of the CryptoExplorers global alumni community to almost 300 highly decentralised industry leaders from multiple sectors. To learn more:

“Spending 3 days with Crypto Explorers not only allowed me to enjoy intellectual conversations, it allowed me to hit fast-forward on a number of different projects because of the fellow participants’ expertise, enthusiasm, and energy. I have been involved in or involved other participants in 3 different projects since our trip to Zug. Building lasting friendships through a shared exploration of what the decentralized world could be like is the ultimate return on investment for me.”
