Blockchain Founders Group and Concordium have entered into a partnership. Concordium is a permissionless Layer 1 that balances privacy with accountability, providing a fast, secure, and high-scale blockchain platform to build a safer tomorrow.

Why we partnered with Concordium

Concordium is a Layer 1, science-backed blockchain, that balances privacy and accountability, placing a strong emphasis on data security and user-controlled personal information. It leverages zero-knowledge proofs to ensure privacy while utilizing third-party verification services for identity validation, keeping sensitive ID data off-chain and bolstering security. This distinctive approach positions Concordium as a public blockchain with private blockchain advantages, offering a high-speed, secure, and highly scalable platform. It facilitates the seamless development of use cases and dApps, ensuring verified IDs, instant finality, high throughput, and low transaction fees pegged to fiat. Concordium’s commitment to safety and compliance, backed by a team of experienced professionals including software engineers, cryptographers, researchers, and business leaders, underscores its dedication to building a responsible and transformative blockchain solution that addresses real-world challenges.

Concordium is the only blockchain with ID ingrained at its protocol layer. The versatility of Concordium Smart Contracts extends across various sectors and industries, encompassing IoT, supply chain, finance, and interoperability solutions between diverse platforms and blockchains. Concordium is designed to prioritize speed, security, and cost-efficiency. CCD, the native token of Concordium, is the payment token that can be used for a variety of purposes on the Concordium platform. This includes payment for the execution of smart contracts, payments between users, and payments for commercial transactions. A total of 10 billion CCD have been created in the genesis block, with further creation of CCD possible through the minting process.

Led by a team of experts from a variety of disciplines and industries, Concordium is scaling the chain to its extensive network of the world’s biggest enterprises to ensure its ecosystem continues to develop according to the needs of its users and with democracy at the core. Furthermore, Concordium is supported by the Concordium Foundation, a non-profit entity aiming to construct the world’s leading open-source, permissionless, and decentralized blockchain. By prioritizing the needs of its users and embracing a democratic ethos, the foundation ensures the continuous development and evolution of the Concordium ecosystem.

“Incubators and accelerators are the backbone of the ever-evolving landscape of Web3. Concordium is thrilled to enter this partnership and journey toward a more decentralized future.”

— Robin Gonzalez Kristensen (Communications Manager, Concordium)
