Crypto Industry News:
A new fund has been created to prevent the EU from being lagging behind countries such as the US and China in blockchain innovation and artificial intelligence (AI).
The European Investment Fund (EIF) and the European Commission jointly spent EUR 100 million on a special investment program that will make capital available for AI and Blockchain projects through VC funds or other investors.
After implementing the fund, the EIF said that private investors are expected to contribute up to EUR 300 million to the fund, with this sum likely to increase next year when national promotional banks can co-invest under the program.
According to this entry, the EU on Blockchain is already spending quite a lot (projected expenditure for 2019 is $ 674 million), with the funds mainly focused on research and concept verification. The United States spends the most, with an expected spending of $ 1.1 billion, and China comes second with $ 319 million, according to data from the International Data Corporation.
The new fund aims to remedy that little is spent in the EU on developing ‘larger-scale projects’.
“Investing in the portfolio of innovative AI and Blockchain companies will help develop a dynamic EU-wide investor community in AI and Blockchain. By engaging national promotional banks, we can increase the volume of investment at the national level,” said EIF.
