GIBRALTAR

Gibraltar has a thriving environment for interactive entertainment and eSports, and shows continued growth. Lawyers say that the region has an admirable position in the gaming industry with potential in the global marketplace

amid fast-changing commercial and regulatory frameworks.


The Covid-19 pandemic has accelerated the pace of digital transformation and technological change in Gibraltar. Lawyers say the region is emerging as a hub for digital asset funds. In 2021, the Government extended regulatory guidelines for digital asset exchanges.

In December 2021, the Government announced plans for a pilot intended to rollout to trail bloackchain technology.  

Albert Isola, Gibraltar’s Minister for Digital and Financial Services, explained: “Gibraltar has successfully positioned itself as a forward-thinking jurisdiction for innovative businesses developing and offering blockchain-related solutions. The implementation of blockchain technology into our processes in partnership with our stakeholders working here will further improve the way in which our community interacts with the government.”

In other developments, the region’s OTT and video markets are expected to show continued growth, say lawyers, after a period of steady growth across non-linear services.
