As reported by Les Echos, two French Members of Parliament (MPs) have released a report asking the government to invest around $568M in blockchain programs within the next three years, to create a “Blockchain Nation”. The MPs have suggested that the National Research Agency and Bpifrance lead the funding for these projects, noting that France should enter into the industry quickly before other countries such as China and the USA take the lead.
