Guardtime together with its partner the King Mongkut's Institute of Technology Ladkrabang (KMITL), will work together under the auspices of the National Broadcasting and Telecommunications Commission (NBTC) to deploy its blockchain technology as an integrity foundation layer for applications developed under Thailand’s digital economy 4.0 initiative.

“Blockchain has the potential to spark innovation in the public sector, promoting trust and efficiency that citizens perceptibly desire. We are pleased that KMITL has selected a tried and tested technology which will satisfy all these needs,”

said Dr Thanapant Raicharoen, Deputy Secretary General of The National Broadcasting and Telecommunications Commission.

Prior to the contract being awarded to Guardtime, the faculty of Information Technology at King Mongkut's Institute of Technology Ladkrabang (KMITL), one of the leading public universities in Thailand researched blockchain technologies for digital government applications and selected for Guardtime based on its proven track record for deploying blockchain solutions within digital government.

“We're pleased to partner with the Thai government with our proven technology stack in raising a new level of trust and confidence for the entire value chain of government services and processes,”

said James Koo, President of Guardtime Singapore.
