Aragon announces new board members, Aragon Institution MTU
Aragon, a business management tool built on the Ethereum platform, has added two blockchain experts to its board of advisors and has launched Aragon Institution MTU, according to a press release.
Based in Estonia, Aragon Institution MTU is a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping Estonia implement blockchain technology.
"Estonia is ahead of its time when it comes to the use of blockchain technology," Aragon co-founder and Project Lead Luis Cuende said in the release. "The government fully embraces the technology using blockchain-based applications for governance, including the welcomed e-residency program and blockchain-enabled medical records initiative."
Kenny Rowe is chief operating officer of the Dai Foundation. He oversees Maker Dao, a decentralized autonomous organization on the Ethereum blockchain that seeks to minimize the price volatility of its own stable token — the Dai — against the IMF Special Drawing Right valuation basket. Rowe brings extensive experience in blockchain technology and crypto-economics, according to the release.
"Maker DAO has been one of the best examples of transparency in governance within the community," Cuende said. "Having Kenny Rowe, their governance lead, advise Aragon on the governance of the Aragon Network and Aragon organizations, is incredible. Rowe will assist us in shaping the growing Aragon community."
Jake Brukhman co-founded CoinFund, a crypto asset investment company and blockchain research firm, according to the release.
"I am proud to bring my experience in blockchain to the advisory board of Aragon, a company I believe will redefine the management of companies globally and drive the movement towards decentralized organizations," Brukhman said in the release.
