Horizon State, a blockchain-based community empowerment and secure voting company, has announced a strategic partnership with the world’s largest independent socio-religious organisation, Nahdlatul Ulama (NU).
Representatives from Horizon State and MorganDe Vere, an international FinTech firm, came together in Singapore recently to celebrate the historic signing of NU – an organization devoted to the spread of justice, peace, and tolerance — for an exclusive development of Blockchain technology to benefit over 96 million NU members in Indonesia.
The parties held several discussions led by NU Chair, Professor Dr Said Aqil Siradj, to cement the unprecedented collaboration and to promote the values of moderation, compassion, anti-radicalism, and inclusiveness.
The partnership has resulted in the recent launch of a foreign investment company, PT Indo Trust Solutions (ITS), in Indonesia, a consortium with the vision of greater equality through the implementation of dramatic community empowerment through a range of digital services for members.
Speaking from their office location in Central Jakarta, Dr Tonetto suggested that “… the benefits to Indonesia will be incalculable and ongoing, and building momentum will eventually reach a tipping point.”
“When that happens, tangible benefits will be felt across the entire archipelago. There is a high level of trust (al-Amaana) and prescience in Professor Said Aqil’s dealings with us.”
FinTech firm MCV-CAP will be one of the first partners to integrate services within the Horizon State platform, providing digital banking facilities to improve access to affordable financial services for millions. More global partners of Horizon State are expected to join throughout the year to leverage the democracy-as-a-platform service.
Aligned with NU’s promotion of moderation, compassion, anti-radicalism and tolerance, it is hoped the revolutionary technology will play a role in improving education, developing the economy, and assisting the underprivileged by giving members a greater voice in policy decisions.
Chairman of the Executive Board of Nahdlatul Ulama, Professor Said Aqil Siradj, confirmed his support for the roll-out of the technology, and the positive social impact it will have to members.
Horizon State chief executive officer, Oren Alazraki, said the technology would empower over 96 million NU members with a focus on community enablement and improved access to services.
“Horizon State will empower very large communities to openly and safely express their opinions in a manner that promotes efficient and inclusive decision-making to create a positive effect in our society,” said Alazraki.
He later added that the platform will significantly increase collaboration between organisations and communities to an unprecedented level due to the wide range of civil and financial services on offer.
Over the coming months, the parties will finalise the details of the multi-year implementation roadmap and provide high-level rollout strategy for the technology to provide access for NU members.
Horizon State has built a community empowerment and secure voting platform that delivers unprecedented trust through the integrity and post-unforgeable attributes of blockchain technology. The platform delivers collaborative-decision making tools wherein results can never be altered, and identities are protected.
