ARK Crypto Podcast - Episode #59

ARK CEO FX Thoorens on the Formation of ADAN French Blockchain Association

Episode Description

The fifty-ninth episode of the ARK Crypto Podcast is here! This week I sit down with ARK CEO FX Thoorens to talk about the formation of ADAN. L’Association pour le développement des actifs numériques (ADAN) is a professional association based in France. Created to help structure and develop the digital assets industry, ADAN will play a key role in representing the blockchain, cryptocurrency and wider digital asset industries both in France and in Europe. Also, in a community announcement, we wanted to let you know that ACF elections are back on for a new term! The ARK Community Fund is managed by a community elected board of five members who vote on proposals. To become a candidate, contact Marc [Cryptology] on Enjoy!
