LONDON, UK - Media OutReach - September 26th, 2018 - Effective immediately, former Deputy CEO and Executive Vice President Volvo CE, Eberhard Wedekind, has been unanimously elected as the Chairman of the Dascoin Board. DasCoin is a blockchain based currency which is at the center of a revolutionary digital asset system.
Wedekind steps up from his role as a non-executive director after first joining DasCoin early last year.
DasCoin CEO and founder Michael Mathias said: "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 as trust. I'd also like to express my appreciation for the many contribution and passionate commitment of Anna Heijka, our former Chairman.
