Hong Kong, a cryptocurrency centre

Cryptocurrencies are virtual currencies for which a special cryptography is used for security purposes. This makes the currency difficult to counterfeit. Moreover, this currency is not issued by a central authority, thus clearly separating it from the Government and its control.
The first cryptocurrency that became well-known to the general public was bitcoin. Now, other blockchains like Gatecoin are making their appearance in financial centres like Hong Kong.
The Special Administrative Region classifies Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies as a type of virtual commodity that is created virtually/in the virtual world. Government officials have yet to release a clear framework for regulating this virtual currency. Even with a lack of a clear regulatory framework for virtual currencies, Hong Kong remains one of the of main crypto/blockchain markets in Asia because of its sound approach towards financial services. Hong Kong is seen by experts as an ideal jurisdiction for those who want to open a Hong Kong company that activates in the crypto/blockchain industry.
