The Concordium Foundation is a Swiss-based non-profit with the goal to build the world’s leading open-source, permissionless, and decentralized blockchain with built-in user identity at the protocol level. Concordium supports regulatory compliance, allowing businesses to harness the power of blockchain technology.
The Concordium Foundation is supervised by the Swiss authorities, with a clear purpose defined in its Public Deed. The Foundation Board is tasked with ensuring that the Concordium protocol continues to develop and remain relevant to the needs of users within the parameters of the Foundation's purpose.
Concordium CCD Stakeholders will assume a central role in suggesting and determining the priorities for the Concordium platform through the Governance Committee, whilst the Board will act as a guarantor that the Concordium principles of privacy with accountability and the Public Deed of the Concordium Foundation (Link) are adhered to. The Foundation Board will retain the role as supreme body of the Foundation after full decentralization, but key functions will be delegated to the Governance Committee.
CCD Stakeholders appoint two members of the Governance Committee by on-chain vote, expanding the Committee from five to seven members. The Governance Committee can propose changes to the protocol on-chain.
