Why crypto companies are interested in Estonia as a base of operations
 

Estonia happens to be one of the most crypto-friendly countries in Europe and the world in general. The country is focused on digitization, and lawmakers in the state established that cryptocurrencies and blockchain represent an excellent avenue through which the country can achieve fast-paced growth. It has thus embraced cryptocurrencies but in a regulated manner designed to prevent illegal activities such as money laundering.
