Paris Blockchain Week Summit brought together 1,700+ entrepreneurs, investors and medias from all over the world to talk about blockchain and cryptocurrency in order to make France the first G20 country to create a business-friendly environment for our rapidly growing ecosystem.

We can agree it was a key moment as right after the PACTE Law was voted and should give birth to a nurturing framework enabling enterprises to get ahead of technological innovation. The conference has turned out to be “a bona fide tour de force”.
