Global Blockchain Finance Expert Added To INATBA’s Board Of Directors

Job Appointments | March 10, 2020 By:

The International Association for Trusted Blockchain Applications (INATBA) has added Dr. Sven Hildebrandt to its board of directors.

Officially launched in April 2019, INATBA is an initiative by EU’s European Blockchain Partnership, the result of close collaboration of 26 EU countries. The initiative brings together key industry players, startups and SMEs, policy makers, international organizations, regulators, civil society and standard-setting bodies to support blockchain and Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT) in becoming mainstreamed and scaled-up across multiple sectors.

After earning a Ph.D. in economics, Hildebrandt served in different marketing agencies and management consultancies in the financial services sector. Before joining specialized blockchain consultancy DLC, he worked for Techniker Krankenkasse and HANSAINVEST – the asset administration company of SIGNAL IDUNA Gruppe. He is actively contributing in the International Standardization Organization (ISO) as well as DIN (Deutsches Institut für Normung).

Hildebrandt, who was elected by the membership from among a slate of six excellent candidates representing INATBA’s “micro” member category, said that he will use his finance background to focus on crypto assets and creating a unified European Market because “we must refrain from creating a regulatory patchwork in the different member states of Europe via diverging transposition laws.”

“Another key-issue of mine will of course focus on start-ups, as this is the group I am delighted to represent,” Hildebrandt said. “This includes, but is not limited to: Financing, Coaching and setting core principles for public tenders in this regard.”
