Not experimenting blockchain
- In January 2018, The Polish Blockchain Technology Accelerator team, managed by the Ministry of Digitalization, declared the development of a national cryptocurrency, Digital PLN.
- Despite an already modelled functioning version of the national cryptocurrency, the Polish government has shown slow progress in establishment of regulations, that would enable more common uses.
- In the first quarter of 2017, Poland accepted Bitcoin transactions as “official economic activity.“ Yet, crypto assets are still considered as property under the country’s tax code.
- However, despite its interest in the digital currency, the Central Bank of Poland ostensibly backed anti-cryptocurrency campaigns on social media in order to minimise its use.
