The most experienced player in the French market

We have successfully developed blockchain projects with more than a third of CAC 40 companies. We help them understand, explore, and set up blockchain technologies. Here are some examples of our projects.

  • 20 blockchain projects developed (proof-of-concepts, MVP, implementations)
  • 30 exploratory workshops
  • 150 trainings on blockchain technologies

Partner of the French Central Bank

    We have been working with the French Central Bank as soon as 2016 on the MADRE project, which has moved on to a production phase since the beginning of 2018.

    • The project: decentralizing the SEPA creditor identification registry and the assignments of these identifications
    • This was the first implementation of a blockchain project for a central bank in the world
    • Results: drastic reduction of processing times from several days to a few minutes due to simplified interbank information sharing ; substantial cost cutting for the French Central Bank.

Datatrust: our plug & play solution

    Datatrust leverages the Ethereum blockchain to create proofs of integrity and existence of digital files: documents, pictures, sounds etc.

    • In a few clicks, Datatrust generates a PDF certificate.
    • This certificate ensures the existence and the state of a file at a given point in time.
    • Numerous relevant use cases: intellectual property, proof of insurance, fake prevention...

ANFR : Development of an MVP (Minimum Viable Product)

    The National Agency of Radio Frequencies in France (ANFR) has called on Blockchain Partner to develop the Blockchain des Fréquences (Frequency Blockchain). It is the first participation in France of a state agency to a blockchain open to users.

    • The project : experiment a new way of managing frequency bands, fostering a proper self-organisation of stakeholders
    • The objective : handle the increasing number of requests for open frequency bands, in order to offer users a better quality of service
    • The operational setup is expected in automn 2018

Quality line : raw materials traceability within the cosmetics industry

For a major player on the cosmetics sector, we have developed a blockchain Proof-of-Concept that allows the supply chain stakeholders and the end-consumer to trace all the life of the product with a web & mobile app. Our client wanted a trust system to track the origin of the goods bought by customers, in the context of a global strategy “Responsible products for 2020”.

Aéroports de Paris (ADP) Group : training sessions, workshops and proof-of-concept

    We have assisted ADP Group on its blockchain initiative, from the discovery phase to the application technical development. We have applied our well tested three-step method :

    • Internal conference for ADP employees : presentation of blockchain technologies, their use cases and their limits
    • Exploratory sprint with ideation workshops to identify the most relevant use cases
    • Proof-of-concept development : ADP documents anchoring into the blockchain

Large mutual insurer : custom-made exploratory day

    We organized a blockchain exploratory day for 20 collaborators of a mutual insurance group.

    Morning : Workshop « Academy » to present blockchain technologies, their use cases and its potential.
    Afternoon : Workshop « Ideation » to develop the use cases with Blockchain Partner experts.
    Results : more than 30 custom-made blockchain use cases were identified. Three of them were further developed to write the specifications.

BCTG Avocats : training session on blockchain legal issues

    We delivered a 3-hour conference on legal issues of blockchain technologies, ICO and cryptoassets at the BCTG Avocats legal firm.

    To learn more about of legal analysis, find out ourstudy (in French) produced by William O’Rorke, Blockchain Partner Legal Advisor : "Blockchain, cryptoassets, ICO : quelle régulation, quels enjeux juridiques ?". This study covers the main legal issues of blockchain technologies and is updated every semester.

Consortiums : ABBEL and Olarchy

We co-launched two consortiums which aim at developing blockchain's applications in the energy and the real estate industries.

ABBEL : Blockchain for energy

In partnership with Greenflex (a Total subsidiary), we have launched the Blockchain Alliance for Local Energy Loops (“Alliance Blockchain pour les Boucles Energétiques Locales” - ABBEL) in may 2018.

  • The goal :speed up the deployment of decentralized electric networks facilitating collective self-consumption.
  • How : by federating energy players and carrying out joint experiments
  • AFNOR is involved in ABBEL to capitalise on the experiments and define good practices.

Olarchy : blockchain in real estate

In partnership with several real estate players, we simulated the the first real estate blockchain transaction worldwide (the sale of the of building In/Out in 2017). A On this occasion, we launched Olarchy : the first platform to track, smoothen and secure the transactions amongst real estate professionals, at every stage of a building life cycle, thanks to the blockchain.
