International Success for Ledger

EYs Awards

EYs national awards in France have a serious process behind them, the same as with its equivalent awards programs in other countries. In France, juries meet in seven French regions to analyze the nomination applications received. Regional winners are selected, meeting in a national final for the overall category winners to be selected. The national awards ceremony then happened this year on October 18, 2018.

Larchev?que and Ledger won the regional round for Paris, as Startup of the Year before winning the national Born Global Award.


Larchev?que is a serial entrepreneur who opened a French Bitcoin Center, La Maison du Bitcoin, before going on to co-found Ledger. Hes reportedly giving himself five years to make Ledger [] a European technology giant of blockchain applications. The entrepreneur may be well on the way to his goal.
