“At a time when the President and the government want to turn Paris into the capital of ICO, the Accelerator Chain has positioned itself as a key player in this process,” said Nicolas Cantu, co-founder of the Accelerator Chain, in comments quoted by different sources.
“In France, as elsewhere in the world, the blockchain projects face uncertainty and with many financial, legal and technical difficulties.However, this technology will revolutionize our daily lives, ” added the member of the French national Assembly, Pierre Lee. Today, it is important to have the legislative framework to ensure full development of both technology and structure that allows you to create such projects. Our country must become a leader in the blockchain”.
Accelerator Chain will be the so-called “incubator” for blockchain projects. It will help them in carrying out ICO, fundraising, marketing, development of the technical part, the development of new concepts and technologies.
