A Consortium to Support the Vision

Aura Blockchain Consortium is a universal project, intended for the entire luxury industry, open to all market players. It relies on a well-designed, inclusive, and fair consortium structure reflecting holistically on the interests of Aura Blockchain Consortium and its members, be they part of a Group or independent, might they be big or small. The General Assembly is the voice of all members. A participative, non-controlling governance model for the business and the operational level is designed to achieve the vision of Aura Blockchain Consortium without weighing on organisational efficiency while preserving impartiality and a balance of influence.
Aura Blockchain Consortium offers a number of different options for membership, collaboration and participation in its governance on General Assembly level, through Board membership or in Committees. We also welcome non-member partners such as trade associations, industry standards bodies, governmental organisations, and/or financial/ technology/ infrastructure ecosystem partners, which may complement Aura Blockchain Consortium’s service offering and contribute to its future development.
