Zug, Switzerland —
the Crypto Valley and the home
of 8848 Invest

Zug itself became the point of attraction for the blockchain industry just like New York and London became the points of interests for global finance or California for technology companies.


The environment of Zug on the one hand makes it possible to work with digital assets, and on the other hand is closely integrated to the traditional financial system.

Jan Peter Huland is the CEO of 8848 Invest, serving a leading role after a professional career of 25 years in international business. He graduated from Villingen-Schwenningen University with a Master of Business Management (MA).
