Concordium is redefining the blockchain market as a player in a totally new category. The founder Lars Seier Christensen, Chairman of the Swiss-based Concordium Foundation says, “The new EU draft and imminent regulations of the crypto market in other places as well, require significant changes in the way current cryptocurrency transfers are made. It may pose a huge challenge for decentralized crypto solutions that hold anonymity as a core value, are committed to peer-to-peer (P2P) and self-custody. Moreover, many projects could be held back by their community from changing their solutions”.

Lars Seier Christensen who was also co-founder of Saxo Bank, one of the world’s first on-line trading platforms, and with a bank license adds: “Cryptocurrency regulation has been a hot topic across world governments for some time. Although blockchain is by nature decentralized, with its P2P exchange and self-custody, it has been clear to me that regulation is inevitable. From inception, we anticipated this, and have uniquely incorporated an encrypted identity stamp into the protocol layer of our blockchain”.
