Blockchain, cryptocurrency, and Web3 are hotter topics than ever before. More and more “crypto curious” people have become enticed by the promise of blockchain: some hope to join the ranks of the “crypto-rich”, while others see only scams and hacks and remain curious but skeptical. But the fact remains that blockchain technology and cryptocurrencies continue to be adopted by companies across many industries: to paraphrase Marc Andreesen, crypto is eating the world. With the recent emergence of the Metaverse thesis, the vision of a blockchain-based Web3 is closer than ever before to mass adoption.
You may not be aware, but France boasts homegrown crypto heroes in several distinct fields.
