Ex NATO Chief Joins Blockchain Startup Concordium As Strategic Advisor


Former NATO chief Anders Fogh Rasmussen joined Switzerland-based blockchain identity startup Concordium as its strategic adviser.

Concordium, the world's first identity-validating, regulatorily compliant blockchain network, is led by Saxo Bank co-founder Lars Seier Christensen.

Rasmussen served three terms as Prime Minister of Denmark from 2001 until 2009. In the same year, Rasmussen was elected as Secretary-General of NATO, where he served for five years before stepping down in 2014.

In 2017, he founded the Alliance of Democracies, a non-profit organization dedicated to the advancement of democracy and free markets across the globe. Rasmussen is also the Founder and CEO of Rasmussen Global, an international political consultancy.

Christensen, Chairman of Concordium, said Anders will play a pivotal role in the start-up company's global expansion plans to move into areas that require a blockchain solution for secure and private communications, as well as liaising with governmental departments that will benefit from its implementation.

He said the identity-validating network will support tamper-proof voting systems.

The Concordium Network features a protocol-layer identity-validating, mechanism, which will ensure that every user on the network is identified, and every transaction involves provenance tracking.
