What Bruno The Mayor really thinks of crypto-currencies…

Bruno The Mayor is out of the silence in an opinion signed on the website Numerama, and it seems to have changed his opinion on crypto-currencies. Back on the remarks made by the French Finance minister.

An opponent of Bitcoin ?

There are still a few weeks, Bruno Le Maire, objected fiercely to the crypto-currencies that it considered dangerous. The minister of Finance had stated that it was imperative to impose a regulatory framework, and this the more quickly as possible. But, in this forum, it seems to have revised some of his positions.

In fact, while he participates in the meeting of G20 Finance ministers in Buenos Aires, he recalled that virtual currencies were a real revolution to which it was necessary to participate : “A revolution is underway, for which the Bitcoin was just the precursor. The BlockChain will provide unprecedented opportunities to our start-up, for example, with the Initial Corner Offerings (ICO), which will enable them to raise funds through “tokens” (tokens), in crypto-assets or not. It promises to create a network of trust without any intermediary, to offer a traceability increased transactions and, overall, to save the economy in efficiency. “

A mandatory regulation

It seems, therefore, to think that crypto-currencies will have a positive impact on the economic future of the country. However, he does not forget the importance of a regulatory framework.

In fact, he confirmed that the government will propose in the near future, a legislative framework to protect investors. There should theoretically be a visa that will be issued by the AMF, the French financial markets Authority : “Clarify the law in order to attract innovation, identify the risk without hindering our ecosystem, so that’s our approach. “

Bruno Le Maire, has also pointed out that a fact-finding mission was currently underway and that she will have to answer various questions, particularly concerning the future guarantee for the protection of investors, or even tax related to crypto-currencies. For the moment, it is premature to regulate virtual currencies, but it seems obvious that the Finance minister wants to make France an attractive country for the crypto-investors.
