The Druk Gyalsey, or Crown Prince of Bhutan, did a solo engagement at the age of just 7.

Prince Jigme Namgyel Wangchuck attended the launch of Bhutan’s new National Digital Identity System, or NDI. With a helping hand, he became the first person to register with the NDI mobile wallet.

Jigme Tenzing, Acting Secretary for GovTech Bhutan said, “We are honored and privileged to have His Royal Highness as the first digital citizen of Bhutan. The launch of Bhutan National Digital Identity based on the Self-Sovereign Identity model, is a major step forward in transforming the way services are delivered in both the public and private sectors. This flagship initiative of GovTech will provide secure and verifiable digital identities to citizens, laying a strong foundation for our digital future. We are delighted to have worked closely with the excellent team at DHI on developing the technologies for Bhutan NDI. We hope this example of using technology to transform lives while safeguarding privacy will inspire and motivate others to follow suit.”
