Friday 28 April 2023 10:48 CET | News

US-based Plug and Play has revealed that it will expand the Crypto and Digital Assets programme to France to help businesses move from Web2 to Web3.


The programme was originally launched in November 2022 in Silicon Valley in partnership with Visa, Franklin Templeton, AllianceBlock, INX, and IGT. By expanding it to Paris, France, Plug and Play aims to educate companies on the capabilities of blockchain while facilitating bespoke partnerships. 

Intially, Plug and Play engaged with Bitcoin at an institutional level in 2013 by mining cryptocurrency in their own data centre. In the same year, the Bitcoin accelerator allowed Plug and Play to invest USD 25,000 into blockchain startups, which eventually paved the way for the Fintech programme that launched in 2014 with the help of enterprises such as Citibank, Intuit, Deutsche Bank, and USAA. According to the company press release, Plug and Play has invested in over 50 startups in the crypto space, including Blockdaemon, Stellar, and Evertas. 

The company worked with its partners over the years to identify high-value, bespoke opportunities for their particular businesses and strategies. For example, Plug and Play launched a Brand and Retail platform in Paris in 2016 and invested in Ownest, which is a startup that leverages blockchain technology to track responsibilities along a company's supply chain.
