The startup is based in Paris and has joined 30 veterans from tech and financial spheres, that envolves names like Hyperloop Transportation Technologies’ chairman Bibop G.Gresta, SWIFT’s former CEO Leonard Schrank, Ledger’s president Pascal Gauthier, etc., in order to enforce the growth of the new blockchain companies.
At a time when the President and the Government want to make Paris, the capital of the ICOs, Chain Accelerator is positioning itself as a key player. By setting up a global and operational network in Paris, it brings together the best talent, extends the circle of contributors, and prepares for disruptions to help blockchain projects develop protocols in all sectors.
Co-Founder, Chain Accelerator
Applying its co-working with industry veterans, Chain Accelerator is to propose a wide range of services to its customers including technical prototyping, business development, recruitment, marketing and public relations, funding guidance, ICO support, and “token economy” consultatory.
This year ealier, French regulatory agency passed its intention to engage the blockchain companies in the country by creating a regulatory framework for ICOs. It was resulted by a large tax cut by the government for cryptocurrencies which diminished the taxes from 45 percent to 19 percent.
In France, as everywhere in the world, blockchain projects face many uncertainties and complexities, whether financial, legal, or technical. Yet, this technology will revolutionize our daily lives. As such, it is essential today to have both a legislative framework enabling its full development and structures enabling the emergence of such projects. Our country must become a leader in the blockchain. I am convinced that Chain Accelerator - the first blockchain incubator - will contribute greatly to this.
