France and Blockchain

Already at the end of February, during the International Agricultural Exhibition in Paris, Emmanuel Macron declared his willingness to use blockchain systems for the traceability of food products.

Moreover, at the beginning of February, a report of the French Finance Commission on crypto and blockchain had been published, which seemed to result in a regulation that treats cryptocurrencies as securities.
