Electroneum, the digital payments ecosystem that has its eyes on helping the unbanked achieve financial inclusion, has added a powerful NGO ally to their stable in an advisory role.
Internationally renowned NGO executive David Bull CBE has joined Electroneum in order to raise the commercial and educational profiles of the UK-based cryptocurrency project among top-level non-governmental organizations and corporations.
Bull’s main area of expertise rests in helping those in third-world countries, and within his role at Electroneum, Bull will be helping the company’s global freelancer AnyTask, and free e-learning TaskSchool platforms, are successful in helping end financial exclusion.
“We are very excited and very privileged to have David Bull on our team. He is here to help further our vision to help millions of people in developing countries and to broker deals with corporations and the most successful organizations in the world,” said Electroneum CEO Richard Ells.
Bull also commented on his inclusion and the continued fight against financial exclusion that Electroneum is looking to fight.
“It is an ecosystem of initiatives working in innovative, dynamic and creative ways to bring digital and financial inclusion and better and more sustainable livelihoods to those who are left behind,” he stated. “This seems to me to be just the kind of innovation which can help ensure that by 2030 no-one is left behind, unconnected and financially excluded.”
Bull appears to be a good fit for the Electroneum and its core goal of helping alleviate financial exclusion, which is of such importance that it ranks as an enabler of other developmental goals in the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals. It actually features as a target in eight of the seventeen goals.
Under his leadership, the UK chapter of the United Nations International Children’s Emergency Fund became one of the most successful chapters. It also became a leader in developing robust and lasting corporate partnerships.
The new advisor for Electroneum was also successful in increasing its voluntary income from $16.8 million a year in 1998 to nearly $90 million in 2013 and $130 million in 2015.
