Spain is one of the countries with the most active exploration of use cases for blockchains, beyond the creation of cryptocurrencies. This interest extends to other universities, companies and national and regional governments.
As reported by CriptoNoticias, last November they already registered more than 150 companies dedicated to this industry in the European country, according to data from the Observatory and Blockchain Forum of the European Union.
