Blockchain Revolution not To be Missed: French Finance Minister
With the events that happened just before the G20, it looks like the standing points and opinions on cryptocurrencies had a change of mood on the positive. Brune Le Maier – French Financial Minister, added digital currencies have resulted with playing a very important part of the game when it comes to the globe’s economy. Additionally a very welcomed post through Twitter has been made by the Minister stating his bullish sentiment towards Bitcoin and mostly Blockchain technology.
We will not miss the blockchain revolution! … France wants to be force of proposal to build the world of tomorrow! My tribune on @ Numerama # G20Argentina – translated
But obviously, as explained by Le Maire – in the same time cryptocurrencies could be used as a financial source and support of illegal activities. The same idea and thought is backed up by many leader around the world.
Accordingly to the above mentioned statement, the minister added that the technology is very important and to be welcomed:
“We agree that crypto-assets can be very interesting for everyone. And we – obviously – are in favour of blockchain technology, which can provide very good support to financial assets in Europe or anywhere in the world. We are in favour of these technologies, but we want these technologies to be secure and therefore we need to define very clear measures for their regulation.”
Other world leaders are showing support for cryptocurrencies. Some days ago, we wrote at UseTheBitcoin that China’s new central bank governor likes bitcoin. Mr Yi Gang called cryptocurrencies and bitcoin inspiring and enlightening.
