Tezos Foundation Names New Board Member, But Infighting Continues

Job Appointments | February 6, 2018 By:

Lars Haussmann has been appointed to the board of the embattled Tezos Foundation, which controls the funds for Tezos, a file-sharing service that had a $232 million initial coin offering last July.

The Tezos project devolved into a dispute between co-founders Arthur and Kathleen Breitman, who control the code, and Johann Gevers, the president of Tezos Foundation, which controls the ICO funds.

Haussmann is head of corporate management and company administration at Swiss accounting firm Haussmann Treuhand AG and was “unanimously” named by the other two board members.  He joins the organization at a time when the project seemingly is mired in legal allegations, even as cryptocurrency prices are dropping.
