“I expect that we will issue the first licenses in the next few weeks — that is very important for us. Slowly but surely the cryptocurrency and digital token market are evolving, too.”

What are the prospects? Mali said that Serbia is developing its own token trading platform, which is expected to launch as early as next year. He also said that the government is actively working on adopting a growth strategy for the Belgrade Stock Exchange, which he called the right tool to support the development of the financial market.
