Ex-Trump Top Economic Adviser Joins Forces With Fledgling Blockchain Startup

Goldman Sachs bigwig Gary Cohn, who served as Donald Trump’s top economic adviser from the very onset of his presidency, is now joining a Blockchain startup, Financial Times reports. After sparring with Trump over imposing tariffs on steel and aluminum and subsequently resigning back in May, Cohn will work with Spring Labs, a fintech startup that has offices in Los Angeles and Chicago with 20 people on board.

Spring Labs, which raised more nearly $15 in a seed funding round, is focused on increasing the efficiency and security of data-sharing with the help of Blockchain. Cohn calls his presence on the team a “unique opportunity”, but he also recognizes the challenges that come with building the technology and getting it accepted by lenders and data providers.
