“It’s good to see how innovative our partners are in supporting and scaling blockchain projects. Thank you Jelurida for your insightful presentation at our first Think Tank of 2022. We look forward to the next developments and project collaborations between you and our partners.”
The Ticino Blockchain Technologies Association focuses on three crucial pillars:
- Establishing a concentration of heterogeneous entities, including universities, students, enterprises, investment funds, etc.
- Uniting partners through a joint industry approach and engaging them to produce economic value
- Fostering better cooperation between partners, even when competing with one another.
These facets align with the long-term vision Jelurida has for the blockchain industry. Its core technologies and products – Nxt, Ardor, and IGNIS – are designed to fuel ongoing blockchain industry growth and help establish new use cases, cooperation, research, and brainstorming.
Tomislav Gountchev, Jelurida Lead Software Architect & Director:

The Ticino Blockchain Technologies Association organized the first face-to-face Think Tank event since the COVID-19 pandemic began. The event took place on April 1, 2022, at Hotel Dante and was attended by various blockchain and crypto firms, including Jelurida.
Lugano is quickly turning into a hub for blockchain and cryptocurrency. The city will introduce Bitcoin, Tether’s USDT, and the LVGA token as legal tender as part of the Lugano Plan B, following the example set by El Salvador several months ago. In addition, all businesses in Lugano will receive aid to use cryptocurrency for everyday transactions. Residents of Switzerland’s eighth-largest city will also be able to pay their taxes with these three currencies.
Founded in 2017, Jelurida Swiss SA is a software company that develops and maintains the Ardor and Nxt blockchains. Now a multinational organization with offices on three continents, Jelurida is focused on helping enterprises capitalize on the benefits of blockchain through making it easier to deploy applications connected to the open Ardor and Nxt networks.
