Former PM of Estonia undertakes blockchain journey to transform the healthy lifestyle industry
Taavi Rõivas, a former Prime Minister of Estonia, has joined a blockchain startup in its Supervisory board. Lympo, as the startup is called, works to transform the healthy lifestyle ecosystem. The startup collects data through blockchain, by monetizing and incentivizing wellness data. The ex-Prime Minister of Estonia will be serving as the Chairman of Lympo. The startup made the promising announcement through an official post.
Supportive of Lympo’s venture in the blockchain space, Mr Rõivas, who served as the country’s Prime Minister from March 2014 to 23 November 2016, said: “Lympo’s mission is one that I can easily relate to. I ran my first marathon because of a challenge and have been a passionate runner ever since. I have seen many startups and know well that the key to success is to have a great team. Lympo’s team is one of the most inspiring, and I am certain that Lympo has huge potential.”
Rõivas and his association with blockchain
This is not the first time that Rõivas has got associated with blockchain. Rõivas, currently a member of the Estonian parliament, has previously worked rigorously to establish the country as one of the digital pioneers in the world. According to the post of Lympo, “By 2015, Estonia had a much-admired e-residency programme, where anyone was able to apply for a transnational, government issued, digital identity which gives full access to Estonia’s public e-services.”
“Thrilled” to have Rõivas aboard, the CEO & co-founder of Lympo, Ada Jonuse, said: “We are thrilled to welcome Taavi Rõivas on board as the chairman of the Supervisory Board of Lympo. His position as a figurehead in the political and tech world will help share Lympo’s vision on how blockchain and data can help transform the fitness and healthy lifestyle industry.”
