Analysis of French ICO projects, with the help of an original database, demonstrates the growing interest in this type of fundraising by certain project initiators, who seem to welcome the opportunity to call on a community of international investors and introduce this method along with other, more traditional methods of financing. In order to ensure the protection of consumers, the study also presents the French proposal for an optional ICO visa.
