Dascoin, the self-styled “currency of trust”, has increased its boardroom clout by promoting industry heavyweight Eberhard Wedekind to chairman, the company said on Wednesday.

Stepping up from his role as non-executive director, Wedekind – formerly deputy chief executive of Volvo – will help guide the company to increased growth, says Michael Mathias, Dascoin shief executive.

New chapter

Eberhard Wedekind

Mathias added: “The election of Eberhard as Chairman begins a whole new chapter of growth for DasCoin. His long career of solid business success adds valued international oversight to our top-class Board.

“This is another significant step to establishing DasCoin as the international currency of trust.”

Wedekind’s step up follows the sudden death earlier in September of former chairman Anna Heijka.

Shaping the future

“I’m thrilled to be a part of the continuing success of DasCoin. I’m convinced it will revolutionise the way we pay for goods and services, whilst shaping our future relationship with money,” Wedekind said.

Dascoin is currently listed on five exchanges – Idax, CoinFalcon, BTC-Alpha, EUBX, and – announced this week – CoinBene, the Singapore-based cryptocurrency exchange.
