Estonia has announced that there is no prospect of starting the nation’s cryptographic currency and that he will not do so anymore.

“Estonia is already an important place for startup and we are seeking ways to improve that environment, one of which is towards companies that want to operate ICOs in a legal and responsible manner I think that it is to provide clear guidelines. “
