Bitcoin wallet hardware maker Ledger and bitcoin exchange Paymium are among the 36 fintech startups backing France FinTech, a new trade group that has garnered support from the French government.

“We’ll be very active on all bitcoin related subjects for the association, and will make sure the crypto voice will be heard,” said Eric Larchevêque, CEO of Ledger.

Paymium co-founder Gonzague Grandval said that the group’s creation “is a sign that FinTech startups are very active in France”.

The group, which formally launched on 11th June, seeks to facilitate connections between the country’s fintech startups and act as a collective voice when communicating with regulators, investors and parties both domestic and abroad.
