GBA Global Leadership Changes

GBA Global Leadership Changes

Shiv Aggarwal, GBA’s current Regional Director for Europe, Middle East, & Africa (EMEA), has decided to step down from his role to focus on his venture EarthID, a decentralized identity platform that allows secure and frictionless exchange and verification of identity information. The GBA leadership is very appreciative for the dedicated work that Mr. Aggarwal has invested into this role and wish him great success as he builds EarthID.

Shiv says, “I have thoroughly enjoyed my journey at GBA since 2018. There has never been a dull moment – including reviving the London Chapter, forming the task force with Jovan Marjanovic and countless more. I have always loved working with GBA’s leadership team, as well as the entire global community. GBA is close to my heart, and I will always be around. However, now EarthID needs my full attention. 2022 has been an exceptional year for us. We are growing from strength to strength – increased our customer base, forged new partnerships, forayed into new geographies, covered by international media, and won the Digital Leaders 2022 Blockchain Innovation Category award. All this would not have been possible without GBA’s community. So, I will always be grateful for the same.”

The EMEA leadership role will transition to Priya Guliani. Priya is a technology and impact entrepreneur. She is an MIT certified leadership professional and Oxford certified Blockchain expert with over 14 years of IT consulting experience. She has been instrumental in the success of many strategic and digital transformation initiatives for global brands. Ms. Guliani is also an author and speaker in innovative technology and sustainability space. She Joined GBA in 2019 as a member and has since moved ranks from leading operations to UK chapter president. Being passionate about sustainability, inclusion, and climate impact, she leads the GBA’s ‘Sustainable Environmental Stewardship’ working group. Priya also served as the Director for GBA’s ‘Blockchain & Sustainable Economic Growth’ event in May of 2022.

Some of Ms. Guliani’s other achievements include: the UK chair for G100 Social Entrepreneurship, Women in Leadership Award 2022 by GCPIT, Mentor with Women in Tech, and she serves as an advisor to an impact fund and innovative startups. She brings excellent thought leadership, camaraderie, and meticulous organizational skills, all while leading by example.

Priya will take the lead in establishing meaningful engagement for individuals and organizations (government, private, and non-profit) that are interested in developing and implementing blockchain technology across the EMEA region. The Government Blockchain Association is proud and honored to welcome Ms. Priya Guliani to the team as the new Regional Director for EMEA.

UBITQUITY OFFICIALLY LAUNCHES CRYPTO LISTING SERVICE TO EMPOWER HOME AND LAND OWNERS ACCEPTING CRYPTOCURRENCY TRANSACTIONS ON ITS PLATFORM

Ubitquity, the innovative leader in the blockchain, title, and real estate space, has officially launched its Crypto Listing Service™ with existing partners in July of 2022.

 

Wilmington, Delaware, USA – July 19, 2022 – Ubitquity LLC, the leading enterprise blockchain-secured platform for real estate and title recordkeeping, is excited to announce that it has launched its Crypto Listing Service™ as part of a UbitquityPay™ value add-on for home sellers who want to advertise their properties or land to the global cryptocurrency community.

 

“The Crypto Listing Service™ provides a new property listing and search experience for collaboration between homeowners, title companies, and REALTORS® who are working to serve the ever demanding needs of their clients. With the major volatility of cryptocurrencies as of late, people want to put their cryptocurrency into more stable assets like property, so the timing of this product launch couldn’t be better,” said Nathan Wosnack, Founder & CEO of Ubitquity.

 

UbitquityPay’s Crypto Listing Service™ is a definitive source for the most up-to-date listing information for both buyers and sellers who intend to transact in cryptocurrencies. The Crypto Listing Service™ gives both parties the ability to accept and pay with over 130+ supported cryptocurrencies on the UbitquityPay™ platform, while offering best-in-class security, and automated KYC/AML (Know-Your-Customer, Anti-Money Laundering) solutions to ensure regulatory compliance, in addition to being linked to three leading global cryptocurrency exchanges. Crypto Listing Service™ is working with a number of agents and REALTORs® and will be integrating into existing Multiple Listing Service (MLS®) infrastructure via its API in the coming weeks.

 

“We are working diligently to provide pertinent, accurate, and extensive information to ensure the Crypto Listing Service™ add-on to UbitquityPay™ exceeds the expectations of our valued global customers when we launch in July of this year. We are also excited to announce that we already have over 40 listed properties across the United States, and one business for sale in Toronto, Ontario, Canada: Lot 774,” added Wosnack.

The fledgling Crypto Listing Service™ provides a collaborative environment with the responsive mobile features and comprehensive property insights homebuyers need to make timely, informed decisions when transacting in both cryptocurrency or a hybrid of their local currency (fiat). UbitquityPay’s payment processing partnership also ensures that their rates, often 1% or less with revenue sharing, are the most competitive in the industry. 

The addition of Guaranteed Crypto Price Settlements (no stablecoin required), a live demo, new features such as 24/7/365 support, Service Level Agreement (SLA), and white glove handling of title policies and other relevant paperwork for the transaction are industry requirements that UbitquityPay™ supports. The Crypto Listing Service via UbitquityPay also links to three of the leading cryptocurrency exchanges: Coinbase, Kraken, and Okcoin.

 

UbitquityPay™ helps to remove the friction (i.e. 72 hour+ delays associated with Good Funds Law, fraud mitigation, intermediary costs, etc.) between title/escrow firms, insurance underwriters, and homeowners. Ubitquity works with title companies to ensure the transaction is both legal and valid. Once the transaction is complete, the cryptocurrency is stored with multiple signature wallets. The UbitquityPay™ platform instantly converts the cryptocurrency amount into fiat currency.

 

Ubitquity’s Founder & CEO Nathan Wosnack will be hosting a free webinar to discuss the benefits of UbitquityPayand the Crypto Listing Serviceon Thursday July 21st at 7:00 PM ET. RSVP: https://www.crowdcast.io/e/handling-cryptocurrency.

Healthcare Working Group Current Events – Connect With Us at the Blockchain & Sustainable Economic Growth Conference, May 25th – 27th in Washington DC

I gotta say, the last couple weeks of May have always been an invigorating time for me.

Personally, it signals the beginning of summer and all of the warm weather I’ve been craving since October. We get to trade overcoats for T-shirts, and long pants for shorts, and I start living by the adage, “Sun’s Out Guns Out”.

This year however has fostered a different kind of excitement. The GBA’s second conference of 2022, themed around Blockchain and Sustainable Economic Growth, happens during the last week before Memorial Day and will be a great opportunity to connect with members of the Healthcare Working Group.

Several members of the GBA HWG will be presenters and keynote speakers during the event (including Dr. Ann Ingraham from Exponential Health Tech Advisors, Maria Esquela from Enable Alliance, and Pradeep Goel from Solve.Care) sharing their perspectives and experiences with blockchain adoption in the healthcare space.

I’ll be in attendance as well, promoting some of the cool projects the HWG is working on now, and soliciting feedback from anyone who wants to vibe with me about the Blockchain Ethical Design Framework for Healthcare White Paper, the future of healthcare and blockchain technology, data privacy and ownership, or the fact that summertime is finally here and we get to be around each other without a sneeze guard. For the most part.

If you’re in attendance at the conference at the Mayflower Hotel in Washington DC, May 25th through the 27th, please come say hi!

Hope to see you there…
