Grant Shapps, a British Conservative Party politician, has resigned from the advisory board of a blockchain company following claims that he failed to declare a “secret pay deal.”

Shapps resigned from OpenBrix, a blockchain-powered decentralized property portal, as chair of governance after it was reported that a ‘secret’ bonus scheme could see him receive a payment of up to £700,000 ($916,000 USD) for his work.
