France Attracting Talents
Research shows that France is one of the top countries attracting blockchain talent and French tech startups set a new record with 13.5 billion euros raised last year, an overall increase of 17%. According to a survey on organisational and talent development in the global blockchain industry by LinkedIn and OKX, France is one of the world’s top three countries in demand for blockchain talent. France attracts many industry talents due to a rapidly growing and developing ecosystem and active stimulus by government. Last year Crypto.com announced their expansion to France while Binance has deepened its relationship with the country – referring to Paris as the financial hub of cryptocurrency in Europe.
France’s recent decisions, such as its call for identification requirements and increased regulations regarding digital assets, demonstrate that the country is keen to distinguish itself from its fellow large jurisdictions, demonstrating that it is more agile than neighbouring countries such as Germany, the United Kingdom or Italy. In 2022 during his keynote speech at an event organised by Binance at the Palais des Congrès de Paris Minister Barrot stressed the significant role the French government has played in MiCA regulation – calling for transition from Web 2 to Web 3 which will unleash lots of opportunities for sharing collaboration creativity.
