DigitalTown introduces global platform for perpetual digital addresses

SEATTLE, Sept. 29, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- DigitalTown, Inc. (OTC PINK:DGTW), a leading provider of smart city platform solutions, announced today the launch of permanent digital addresses for Netizens who are legal residents concurrent with the start of the rollout of their Blockchain based Smart City Platform across more than 20,000 of the world's largest cities.

What is a Permanent Digital Address?
A DigitalTown Permanent Digital Address (PDA) is a privately owned "digital you" that is accessible on the Internet forever.  In an era of digital abundance, Netizens -- citizens of the global Internet -- are increasingly challenged with the issue of where to be found online. A Permanent Digital Address from DigitalTown is a one-time registration of a personal domain name, either branded in the identity of the city, e.g. Smith.London, or simply branded in your personal identity e.g. JohnSmith.com. Each Permanent Digital Address has the option of being verified by DigitalTown or other authorized verifiers, in order to provide visitors assurance that they are connecting with the intended person before they message or transact.  In many cases, Permanent Digital Addresses will be provided by a local municipality to their legal residents as part of the transition to a Smart City.

Why a permanent digital address? 
When it comes to phone numbers, most Netizens cut the personal landline cord years ago, assuming they bothered to get one in the first place.  When it comes to digital presence, Netizens may have Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, Pinterest and YouTube to name just a few.  When it comes to digital communication, Netizens may have Skype, WhatsApp, GoToMeeting, Viber, Zoom, or other solutions for voice, chat and video conferencing. And when it comes to getting paid, or paying others, digital banking is now 24/7 through not only PayPal but a rapidly expanding array of digital currencies such as Bitcoin and Ethereum. When it comes to managing digital permissions in the emerging era of Internet of Things (IoT), Digital Identity represents a critical component in defining who has access to devices or services. And last but not least, when a Netizen passes away, who decides what happens to the personal digital assets of the Netizen, especially personal photos, documents and videos that may have archival importance?

What can a Netizen do with a permanent digital address?

A verified and secure Digital Address :  A personal digital homepage listing all of a Netizen's digital coordinates.  Each URL is secured by a unique SSL certificate for encryption, and combines the Netizen-verified details for where to find them online or offline.

No more spam emails :  Persons who prefer to not to receive spam message can maintain a list of authorized senders, and even have the option of even charging senders to send them messages. Proceeds are deposited to their SmartWallet upon acknowledging receipt.

Send and receive payment :  With a permanent Digital address, a Netizen can also securely receive payments from others by them simply clicking "Pay" on the Netizen's digital profile. Proceeds are instantly deposited, without fee, to the Netizen's Smart Wallet.

Your Key to the City :  Each digital login is part of a global standard which is live in more than 20,000 cities for use by both the public and private sector.

Rob Monster, CEO of DigitalTown, commenting on the announcement, added "Digital Identity is at the core of the DigitalTown platform. A single login provides secure access to services in the community. In a time of rapid change and an increasingly mobile workforce, the introduction of secure permanent digital addresses is the right idea at the right time.  Consider for a moment the recently displaced persons caused by Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, Jose and Maria, as well as earthquakes in Mexico and volcanic eruptions in Indonesia, just during the last month, and one can quickly appreciate why permanent digital addresses may play an important role. DigitalTown is partnering with private citizens and municipal leaders around the world to make communities more effective in the best of times while also more resilient when disaster strikes."

Your Digital Stake in the Global Future
Earlier this month, DigitalTown announced the launch of Blockchain-based solution for local ownership of the DigitalTown city platform for each city.   The response from city stakeholders and citizens from around the world has been enthusiastic. The first Blockchain token issuance for cities is scheduled for Q4 in Austin.city, Melbourne.city, Nashville.city, Pensacola.city, SanDiego.city, Sydney.city and Smart.London. The global rollout to more than 20,000 cities will follow during 2018 and 2019 in coordination with local stakeholders.  All registered users who are legal residents in any participating city will be eligible to participate by claiming their free coin during the claim period.

As part of the worldwide rollout of the DigitalTown SmartCity platform, DigitalTown is scheduled to exhibit at the International City Managers Association Expo in San Antonio from October 22-25 and the Smart City Expo in Barcelona from November 13-15.  For more information about permanent Digital Addresses, please visit us on the web at DigitalTown.com/forever.
