ACHIEVEMENT / What does the project/initiative/startup/company you will be presenting at the Positive Economy Forum consist of?

Blockchain France enables organizations to discover, explore and implement blockchain technologies. We offer training sessions and workshops that can lead to proof-of-concepts. We also raise awareness about blockchain through various projects such as events (“Big Bang Blockchain” conference in January 2016, Blockchain hackathon in June 2016) and a book in French “La blockchain décryptée” (June 2016, Netexplo editions)


LOCATION / Where do you lead your project/company (city, region and country)?



IMPACT / How do you evaluate the economic, social, politic and environmental impact of your project / action?

Spread information about a complex and not very well-known technology. Help people and companies understand new decentralized technologies, news ways of organizing governance in a less hierarchical way, in order to foster peers’ contributions in projects and companies.
