Two months ago, South Korean electronics firm LG joined the council, following the likes of Google, IBM, UCL, Tata Communications, Boeing and many more.
With the council now spanning across Asia, Europe, the Americas and even the Middle East, it demonstrates how far the notion of decentralisation has come since the Bitcoin whitepaper was published more than a decade ago.
Hedera Hashgraph’s token, HBAR, has remained relatively stable since the tail end of last year, hovering around the $0.04 mark with a market cap of $186 million.
