Concordium aims 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.

Concordium Blockchain Research Center Aarhus

COBRA

The goal of the Concordium Blockchain Research Center Aarhus (COBRA) is to provide the basic research needed to build energy-efficient and scalable blockchain technology that is provably secure.
20 researchers and scientists at COBRA are performing research in blockchain technology, foundational blockchain theory, and cryptography. They are developing new protocols for efficient and secure consensus algorithms (such as proof-of-stake-based ones), sharding mechanisms, new cryptographic techniques supporting privacy-preserving identification, anonymous payments, better zero-knowledge techniques, and languages for smart contracts. Other research includes formal verification of cryptographic protocols, foundational security models for the blockchain space, governance of blockchains, and incentive design and analysis. All research performed in the center is open source and patent-free and will help build a solid foundation for the entire blockchain space.
COBRA was created as a partnership between Aarhus University and the Concordium Foundation, which committed funding of DKK 50 million (EUR 6.7 million) over five years.
The goal of COBRA is to help build the world’s leading open-source, permissionless, and decentralized blockchain with built-in identity management at the protocol level. The Concordium blockchain will enable regulatory compliance, allowing businesses to harness the power of blockchain technology.
