The Republic of Sierra Leone Transitioning As Africa’s First Ever “Smart Country”

Sierra Leone President Koroma and RippleNami, Inc. Announce a Nationwide Blockchain Data Visualization Based Digitization Program to Connect the Unconnected

NEW YORK, September 22, 2017 – Today, Sierra Leone President Dr. Ernest Bai Koroma and RippleNami Inc., a blockchain systems solution provider, announce a nationwide digitization program that will forever change Sierra Leone’s global digital standing. By leapfrogging legacy information communication technology (ICT) systems with RippleNami’s proprietary technology platform, Sierra Leone is poised to penetrate global markets, obtain economic independence, and elevate the prosperity of its people.

RippleNami architects the blockchain data visualization platform that empowers citizens and organizations across the nation to generate, collect, analyze and transact data while positioning Sierra Leone as Africa’s very first “Smart Country.

”In collaboration with the government of Sierra Leone and Data Edge Revenue, a Freetown systems integration company, RippleNami developed the application software that connects people, organizations and resources to services that create social, civic and economic opportunities far beyond any prior capabilities.

This collaboration’s first phase is a nationwide economic identification service. This program provides the digital credentials and collections systems to increase financial inclusion and to improve access to public and government-provided services. The implementation is underway and will roll out fourth-quarter 2017.

In addressing the UN General Assembly today, Sierra Leone’s Minister of Foreign Affairs, Dr. Samura Kamara, speaking on behalf of President Koroma, said, “Today we announce a quantum leap towards digitizing a national program, empowering Sierra Leone to obtain economic independence and aggressively compete in global markets while elevating the prosperity of its people. For the first time in our nation’s proud history, Sierra Leone, in partnership with RippleNami, will deploy the blockchain data visualization system solution that enables Sierra Leone to generate, own, collect, analyze and transact data on a nationwide scale – making Sierra Leone Africa’s first “Smart Country.”

“For the first time ever, the people and organizations of Sierra Leone can leverage their individual and collective assets to fully participate in and benefit from the global economy,” said Phil Gahn, founder and chief business development officer of RippleNami. “The visionary leadership of President Koroma and the commitment of the people of Sierra Leone serve as a beacon for other West Africa nations to obtain and sustain a brighter future through digitization. Our partnership with Data Edge Revenue, and our experience delivering services on our platform in Sierra Leone, stand to benefit the entire region in unforeseen ways.”

Advancements in blockchain and cloud computing, as well as the country’s broad adoption of mobile lifestyles, enable Sierra Leone to leapfrog legacy ICT systems and make essential services affordable and quickly accessible at scale.  “We operate with a clear understanding that data is the new currency in today’s economy,” said Jaye Connolly-LaBelle, president and chief executive officer of RippleNami. “This program cost-effectively positions countries like Sierra Leone to deploy data-driven services that dramatically improve the lives of their citizens and is easily replicable in neighboring countries.”

The visualization capabilities of RippleNami’s platform play a central role in resource management and other planning disciplines undertaken by the government and citizens of Sierra Leone. These proprietary capabilities integrate blockchain transactions with other big data sources to help users detect patterns, identify trends and analyze gaps in ways that lead to better decisions in shorter time frames.

The program also involves a unique service deployment model leading to faster large-scale adoption of the platform enabled services. Sierra Leone government ministries, municipal councils and private businesses in collaboration with RippleNami and Data Edge Revenue are honored to launch and promote these services throughout the country.
