Diginex joins the World Economic Forum’s Centre for the Fourth Industrial Revolution Network

Diginex, a digital asset financial services and advisory company, has joined the World Economic Forum’s Centre for the Fourth Industrial Revolution Network. As a member of the Centre, Diginex will be actively engaged in the Forum’s efforts to shape policy principles and frameworks.

The Fourth Industrial Revolution builds upon the digital revolution which began in the middle of last century. This latest revolution is characterised by a fusion of technologies that is blurring the lines between the physical, digital and biological spheres.

“The Fourth Industrial Revolution is redefining industries, blurring geographic boundaries and challenging existing regulatory frameworks,” said Murat Sönmez, Head of Centre for the 4th Industrial Revolution Network, World Economic Forum.

“There has never been a more pivotal time for emerging leading technology companies to join together to formulate solutions to today’s critical challenges and opportunities. We look forward to working with Diginex to shape the trajectory of the Fourth Industrial Revolution.”

Mr. Richard Byworth, CEO at Diginex, added: “At Diginex, we believe that cooperative and open dialogue with regulatory entities and industry partners will be key to shaping the future of our ecosystem. There is an urgent need for a faster, more agile approach to governing and regulating emerging technologies and the business models they enable. We are excited to be part of the Centre to work together with the industry and regulatory bodies to achieve this.”

The Centre for the Fourth Industrial Revolution was launched in March 2017 to co-design the policies needed to accelerate the adoption of emerging technologies in the global public interest. Membership of the Centre is by invitation only.
