Jonathan Galea

Bitmalta
President of Bitmalta, Blockchain & Cryptocurrencies Lawyer
Malta
Jonathan’s considerable experience in the blockchain sector ranges from a close study on the developing regulation in the area to hands-on experience in the technical and economic aspects of cryptocurrencies, one of the most widely-adopted uses of the blockchain so far.

Jonathan’s LL.D. (Doctorate of Laws) thesis was titled “The Effect of Bitcoin on Money Laundering Law”, and being completed in May 2015, it was one of the first ever legal theses on the subject. He has been following developments in the area for four years and moreover has also participated as a keynote speaker in several conferences both in Malta and abroad, covering the legal, technical and economic aspects thereof.

Jonathan’s expertise consists of legal advice on regulatory matters related to blockchain technologies and cryptocurrencies in general as well as technical advice on blockchains and platforms built on top of them (from a fundamental perspective). He is an active member in various crypto-communities and is experienced in the mining, trading, investing and analysis of cryptocurrencies.

Jonathan is also the president of Bitmalta, the first non-profit association in Malta dedicated to advocating the blockchain technology and cryptocurrencies with particular focus on the Maltese islands. Moreover, apart from completing various courses related to blockchain technologies and attending various seminars, Jonathan has also successfully completed the “Programming in C” course with Ice Malta, thus giving him further insight on the intricacies of programming languages since C served as a basis for most modern languages.
