Paris to Host Blockchain & Bitcoin Conference France in July


Smile Expo’s Blockchain & Bitcoin Conference, a global event centered on cryptocurrencies and blockchain tech, is set to take place at Hyatt Regency Paris Etoile Hotel in Paris, France on July 18, 2018.

Given the French government’s welcoming stance on digital-ledger technology, the conference aims to further promote a friendly crypto community to the country.

Key topics that the Blockchain & Bitcoin Conference France will cover include investments and prospects of the cryptocurrency industry in France, as well as introducing Blockchain to businesses—hosted by leading experts in the crypto space.

France Aiming to be Europe’s Top Fintech Industry

Minister of Economy Bruno Le Maire recently stated that France aims to have the leading fintech industry in Europe. The country is one step closer to its goal by offering a friendly environment to the cryptocurrency market.

AMF, French market regulator, announced a new law last March that recognizes ICOs as a legal investing venture. In April, France’s Council of State talked about trimming down the operation taxes of any cryptocurrency businesses from 45 to 19 percent. There was also a proposal to recognize capital growth earned from cryptocurrency as non-fixed assets. These changes aimed to make the country look more attractive to any investors or businesses in the blockchain space.

The Blockchain & Bitcoin Conference is also targeted at helping France draw ICO startups and other crypto businesses.  New blockchain-based businesses are seen to further help strengthen the country’s Fintech industry.
