AID:Tech has been named the national winner of the Social category and will go on to represent Ireland on the European level.
It is a great honour for AID:Tech to be recognised for the work that we are doing. Since day one we have sought to bring social and financial inclusion to the world’s undocumented and underserved populations via Blockchain based Digital Identity. Being part of the European Final will no doubt further AID:Tech towards our goal.
Joseph Thompson, AID:Tech CEO
