Blockchain revolution in France

France is planning to take a leading position in the blockchain realm and become a large financial hub with prevailing ICO-friendly laws. That is what French Minister of Economy announced in his interview.

In May 2018, AMF (Financial Markets Regulator) presented the French Parliament with a bill concerning ICO. The document approves initial coin offering to be a legal investing means.

In April 2018, the state government made a decision to reduce the tax rate on cryptocurrency sales from 45% to 19%. Capital growth from digital currency would be equated with movable assets (means of transport, precious metals, intellectual property).

The French Parliament organizes special days for discussions dedicated to the distributed ledged technologies. Large banks including BNP Paribas, Societe Generale, RCI Bank are experimenting with blockchain-based transactions.

The French ecosystem of startups is dynamic and successful. The most famous projects are Stratumn having collected €7 m in May 2017 and (more than €12 m during the first three hours of the ICO campaign).

Blockchain-based startups form associations in order to defend their interests at state level. Such communities as Chaintech, Le Cercle du Coin, Asseth and CryptoFR the largest organizations.
