Blockchain Network DADI Names David Wilde To Advisory Boardbr>
Who’s your DADI? Former chief information officer for the Office of the Deputy Prime Minister David Wilde has joined the British technology startup DADI (Decentralized Architecture for a Democratic Internet) as a member of its board of advisors.
Wilde will assist in the firm’s engagement with the central and local governments in the UK and elsewhere. DADI is a network offering cost efficiency (or digital services for communities on a local and national scale.
Wilde previously held multiple leadership positions for large councils, including Essex, Westminster City, and Waltham Forest, and was CIO for the Office of the Deputy Prime Minister.
“DADI was conceived as a project with community at its heart, aiming to return the power of the Internet to the public,” said DADI founder and CEO, Joseph Denne. “As governments begin to reach digital maturity, blockchain presents a huge opportunity to radically improve infrastructure, reduce costs and keep pace with citizens’ expectations when it comes to service provision. David’s vast experience will help us engage with these organisations in a way that is meaningful, insightful and delivers on the potential of decentralised digital services at scale.”
Wild was equally optimistic. “Globally, governments are undergoing digital transformation on a historic scale,” he said. “As the fourth industrial revolution continues to accelerate that transition, we expect the public sector will increasingly engage with proven, disruptive technologies like DADI’s network – both organically as part of ongoing digital transformation, and as a means of future-proofing digital infrastructure and citizen services. DADI is a highly credible, ground-breaking business, and I look forward to helping bring that level of purpose-driven innovation to the public sector.”
