KATRINA DONAGHY

Civic Ledger, CEO & Co-founder

Topic:

Blockchain and Government

Abstract:

Why should governments explore the potential of blockchain technology? The concept of government as a platform has been evolving for the past decade for the delivery of digital citizen at the centre services. However, as we gain a better understanding of blockchain technology and where it is the most effective, is it possible to shift from platforms to government as an operating system where rules, protocols and applications can challenge the role of government in the digital future?

Biography:

Coming from a career in government and utilities, Katrina recognised the potential for governments to apply blockchain technology to create new markets and economies of the future and co-founded Civic Ledger in late September 2016. Civic Ledger boasts contracts with Australian Government customers, including IP Australia to digitise the IP registry with the blockchain. In June 2018, Civic Ledger was named Australia’s Emerging FinTech Organisation of the Year at the 2018 Finnies, the annual fintech industry awards.

She is the founding organiser of the Brisbane Women in Blockchain Meetup and previously, an Industry Mentor at RMIT Online, Australia’s top provider of University on-line educational courses in blockchain technology and for the past 3 years serving as a mentor in Australia’s blockchain community. Katrina’s contributions have been recognised by her appointment as Director to the Australian Digital Commerce Association Board, a not-for-profit industry association promoting Australian blockchain innovation.

Katrina holds a Bachelor of Arts (Humanities) in Cultural Politics and Political Theory and a Graduate Certificate in Entrepreneurial and Venture Development, both from Griffith University in Brisbane, Australia.
