In 2017, the Swiss government formulated a legal framework for Fintech, a financial technology company, including digital currency traders and block chain technicians. The new regulation was passed on July 5, 2017 and came into effect in August. Among the plans already launched, the Swiss government has set up a "sandbox" of digital currency regulation to create a more relaxed environment for Bitcoin start-ups. The plan stipulates that companies with fewer than 1 million Swiss francs ($1 million) will be "exempt from authorization," the Federal Council said. The committee made it clear that the customer funds of these companies would not be included in the national deposit protection regulations.
