Hey folks,


New post today trying to etablish an overview of the french crypto-projects. All of them doesn’t have a native crypto-asset but all use blockchain or are related to.

I will show 12 projects that seem interesting to me and looks like strong projects. Presentation of these 12 projects will be divided in two posts.

I am just introducing theses projects and won’t go in further information because I will post thorough posts about each projects in near future, like I have done it with « Compound Governance Token (COMP) - Synthesis of Useful Information ».

Here the first 6 projects I wanted to share.

Hope you will discover new projects and found it interesting.


1. TALAO - The first Decentralized Protocol for the Future of Work.


Abstract :

« TALAO aim to « "to offer a service without intermediaries and without commission, where companies and talents enter into a direct business relationship, allow talents to regain their professional reputation, certify their skills on the blockchain and store the certificates in a digital safe accessible thanks to the Talao token, and give talents the keys to the governance of the platform, in a transparent and fair way, thanks to a voting system based on reputation," explains the company. »

With this ambition of transparency and the elimination of commissions, Talao wants to distance itself from certain excesses of the platforms on the income of self-employed workers. »


Get the most of Professional Digital Identity of talent

Professional Digital Identity gathers all information that showcases talent real value and employability: experiences, skills, diploma, assessments, and the associated evidence.

It is managed by talent themselves in their own Blockchain workspace, where they can store and encrypt their data and certificates for on-demand access and instant verification.


2018 ICO :

To prepare the launch of the site, Talao initiated March 2018 a fund raising in cryptomoney (ICO: Initial coin offering). Objective: to raise 60 million dollars (approximately 52 million euros). The startup announced on August 6 on its Medium page that it had raised 7300 Ethereum, the equivalent of 2.6 million euros.

Despite potential of the project there are no big news since October 2019.




Abstract :

Our mission is to create an open source standardized decentralized booking protocol along with reference implementations that can be leveraged by participants in industries such as hospitality, travel, finance, healthcare, retail, automotive and more.

The Booking Token Unit (BTU) protocol is a building block for any decentralized application (dApp) or web site willing to implement booking features for their end-users. This standard also brings interoperability among decentralized applications that incorporate it.

The BTU protocol is being standardized as ERC-808 and requires the use of the Ethereum-based BTU token. The purpose of the BTU Token is to incentivize proper behaviors such as rewarding successful bookings and enforcing late cancellation and no-shows policies.

All applications implementing the BTU protocol would benefit from a hybrid approach that combines an on-chain smart contract and off-chain software components, providing more scalability. Finally, a transparent and public inventory enabled by an open-source protocol would considerably lower the entry barriers into the online booking markets.

Since 2018, the crypto-active BTU frees companies and their customers from the monopoly of Internet platforms. Professionals buy and distribute BTUs in order to encourage new digital uses.


Products :

BTU GROUP developed three different products :

  • BTU Direct
  • BTU Earn
  • BTU Hotel

Products works with BTU (Booking Token Unit), wich permit decentralized governance to improves purchasing power of customers.
