Associate members - non-natives of the sector, contribute to the action of the Association and have an advisory vote at the general meetings of the Association.


Within the Association, Faustine Fleuret holds the position of General Delegate.

The General Delegate carries out the instructions of the Board of Directors within the Association, in particular with the operational team. He reports on the progress of the work carried out by the office to the members of the Board during monthly meetings.

  • on the one hand, active members, whose main purpose is to carry out an activity related to crypto-assets. They have a deliberative voice at General Assemblies, ensuring democratic governance within the Association.
  • on the other hand, associate members, whose main activity is not the exercise of an activity directly related to crypto-assets. They have an advisory vote at General Meetings.
