Fantom is pleased to announce that they have joined the Government Blockchain Association (GBA). Fantom is GBA’s only DAG blockchain member and is the first Blockchain Platform solution provider globally. Fantom Foundation consultants including Ashton Hettiarachi, Andre Cronje, David Freuden and Michael Kong have been added to the GBA Consultant Directory, offering their technology and services to both government and private enterprise. This includes designing PoC frameworks, service design for government department service optimization, automation and tech implementation.

Fantom will also be representing GBA in Australia as part of the GBA network of Global Chapters. We will host GBA workshops, events, meet ups and community building, and act as a facilitator between the government and over 50 GBA Working Groups supporting smart city solutions. The Fantom Foundation will also be supporting globally recognized blockchain certification training.

GBA is a global association whose mission is to bring together all levels of government from around the world with various industries to facilitate the adoption of blockchain technology to increase the quality of life for all citizens on a global level.

GBA provides depth of services to their members including government and industry working groups and networking events as well as verification and certification of their members and partners to ensure the highest quality of expertise is being offered within their government and private networks.

According to Gerard Dache, Executive Director of the GBA :

“The Fantom Foundation brings the next generation of scalable solutions to our public and private sector members deploying smart city systems. We are excited to promote the Foundation to our global blockchain community.”

Fantom shared with the community in an April update that we have been working on smart city solutions, engaging different governments bodies, developing frameworks, identifying gaps, understanding policies, procedures to optimize government services and improve smart city ecosystems. Joining GBA compliments Fantom’s commitment to working with governments to adopt blockchain solutions as a part of their smart city initiatives.

“We are super excited to join GBA as it will open doors not only to connect with various government bodies to understand their challenges, this will be an amazing opportunity for Fantom to create new economies, deliver better user experience for people and make a change in people’s lives.” Ashton Hettiarachi, Head of Fantom Innovation Lab.
