Former Estonian Prime-Minister Becomes Blockchain Adviser

Taavi Roivas, former Prime Minister of Estonia, became a consultant to a Blockchain startup that encourages people to exercise more. Roivas led the government of his country between 2014 and 2016.

Roivas, who also serves as a member of the Estonian parliament, joined the startup of cryptocurrencies Lympo as chairman of its supervisory board. Lympo aims to encourage exercise and active lifestyles through its LYM token, the company explained in a press release.

The former PM confirmed the decision via Twitter and said he was "enthusiastic to help one of the Baltic's most promising startups grow and pursue the mission of motivating people to exercise more and better."

Lympo says it tracks and aggregates medical and health information for its users by issuing tokens to reward individuals who perform various physical activities. These activities can be announced or potentially sponsored by companies working with Lympo, according to the company itself.
