Bitcoin Today: Prices Attempt Modest Gains In Narrow Trading Below $7,000 Mark

European Commission Vice President Andrus Ansip said in a speech Tuesday that blockchain technology is “now moving out of the lab and going mainstream.” Speaking at the Commission’s Digital Day 2018, Ansip said the bloc must do more to invest in and foster development in the booming technology sector. He noted that blockchain is one of the “areas where Europe is best positioned to play a leading role.” Ansip’s comments are the latest in a string of encouraging blockchain remarks from European leaders. In February, the Commission initiated the EU Blockchain Observatory and Forum, and the group said on Monday it will invest 300 million euros in blockchain projects.
