Major Headlines


France Adopts Blockchain Revolution Framework


The goal of the bill overall is “liberated companies that are better funded, more innovative and fairer.” The regulation poses changes to unburden government complication for private businesses and allow easier expansion into emerging markets through embracing innovation. A key facet here is laws that facilitate access to diversified funding such as public listing, investment capital, crowdfunding and ICOs. The country officially added the section pertaining to ICOs from the bill. Finance Minister Bruno Le Maire states, believes the changes made to “attract investors from all over the world.” And ultimately, this is a result of a continued push for innovation, where just last year France’s President Emmanuel Macron stated his hope for the country to become a "startup nation."

More Mastercard Blockchain Patent Applications


A series of patent applications outline how "point-to-point transactions" can be facilitated by distributed ledger technology. The methods highlight how a blockchain style data is espeically useful to streamline data for accounting purposes. By using a blockchain based system, payment data is not only condensed, but could be unified. In this way, multi-service platforms would enable "...data to be stored clearly and in a format that is easily auditable by participating entities. In cases where ledgers like blockchains are used, the ledgers may be provided even more benefits as they may be immutable and resistant to tampering, which may further increase the reliability of such data."
