Catalonia Considers Separate Digital Currency and E-Residency Program

• https://www.cryptocoinsnews.com, Lester Coleman

The Government of Catalonia, the Generalitat de Catalunya, has sent representatives to Estonia to learn about the e-residency program, which offers a government-issued digital identity card that provides a way to operate a location-independent business online.

Dani Marco, the director of SmartCatalonia, an official Catalan agency, said the Estonians built a model of economic development from scratch. Marco appears to be heading Catalonia's e-residency initiative.

Catalonia continues to move forward with plans to create an economy separate from Spain, according to El Pais, Spain's leading newspaper. Estonia's e-residency program serves as Catalonia's model and could emulate an Estonian proposal to issue national blockchain based tokens.

El Pais reported that Catalonia is interested in Estonia's e-residency program since the program has no borders. The e-residency program has attracted more than 20,000 entrepreneurs from 143 countries since 2014, including 336 from Spain.
