SEATTLE, June 14, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — DigitalTown (OTC:DGTW), a pioneer in the use of Smart City blockchain-based technology and decentralized applications for cities, is strengthening its Advisory Board with the appointment of Phil Komarny from June 10, 2018. VP of Innovation for SalesForce and a highly connected, award-winning entrepreneur with a strong track record of delivering impactful solutions by aligning today’s problems with emerging technologies, Phil shares DigitalTown’s passion for putting people at the heart of Smart Cities and promoting technology designed to create a more resilient, equitable, and joyful world, locally and globally.
DigitalTown’s ecosystem comprises localized search engine, local ownership via CityShares, a free SmartWallet for payments, and community collaboration platforms, all combined to support local communities. With the introduction of the technology to any city, town or village in the world, each community gains a local-first alternative to the likes of Google, Expedia, AirBnb, OpenTable and PayPal, all in one, accessible 24/7 via web and mobile app at no cost to the community.
DigitalTown CEO, Rob Monster, comments: “Phil is a clear fit for DigitalTown. His enthusiasm for how democratized access to technology can improve lives, coupled with his sharp business acumen and empathy for people is a winning combination. Phil’s vast professional network is a welcome addition at a time when interest in DigitalTown from around the world is accelerating.”
DigitalTown Advisor, Phil Komarny, adds: “As soon as I discovered DigitalTown I wanted to be involved. DigitalTown is the first public company to fully adopt blockchain, specifically RChain, and the first public company to provide tools that really empower residents, visitors, merchants and municipalities to work together to create thriving, sovereign local communities, and that’s a worthwhile movement I want to be a part of and it sits perfectly with some other interests, including Hu-manity.co, which allows people to take ownership of personal data.”
DigitalTown and Komarny are working to drive adoption of DigitalTown among key stakeholders, in addition to exploring opportunities for the incorporation of other technologies that can further bolster the DigitalTown ecosystem.
