Blockchain for Planetary Stewardship, Part 1/2
File Type: Document, Infographic
https://www.blockchainresearchinstitute.org/project/blockchain-for-planetary-stewardship/
Jan 30, 2018 - In the context of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change and the agenda for sustainable development, this project provides a taxonomy for analyzing what the blockchain community is doing to counter the adverse effects of human activity on the planet. It explores such approaches as developing less computationally demanding consensus algorithms, aligning stakeholder incentives, and combining distributed ledgers with other innovations such as artificial intelligence, sharing economy, Internet of Things, and big data analytics.
Autonomous Vehicles and Blockchain
File Type: Document, Infographic
https://www.blockchainresearchinstitute.org/project/autonomous-vehicles-and-blockchain/
Aug 31, 2019 - This project explores how blockchain technology will optimize the deployment of connected and autonomous vehicles (CAVs), including those with electric vertical takeoff and landing capabilities. It looks at the Mobile Open Blockchain Initiative, which involves 80 percent of world’s auto manufacturers and leading tech firms. It covers such implementation challenges as blockchain latency and scalability, communications network latency, device security, and regulation. Finally, it raises concerns about data privacy on immutable distributed ledgers as well as the legal liabilities of CAV ownership and usage.
Blockchain for Planetary Stewardship, Part 2/2
File Type: Document, Infographic
https://www.blockchainresearchinstitute.org/project/blockchain-for-planetary-stewardship-2/
Jan 30, 2018 - This project surveys the landscape of blockchain start-ups, applications, and networks related to climate, sustainability, and governance of planetary resources. It speaks to leaders of green initiatives and heads of corporate social responsibility programs who want to explore distributed ledgers for their coordinating members of their ecosystems. It also introduces innovators to their peers’ work—not just Climatecoin, Grid+, and LO3 Energy but thirty other endeavors including think tanks, trading platforms, and environment-related cryptocurrencies.
Transforming Plastic Pollution Using Blockchain
File Type: Document, Infographic
https://www.blockchainresearchinstitute.org/project/transforming-plastic-pollution-using-blockchain/
Aug 13, 2019 - This research highlights the findings and recommendations of The Coca-Cola Company’s study of single-use plastic packaging waste. The author makes the case that blockchain technology has potential for addressing the challenges of plastic waste in our environment. Specifically, distributed ledgers, combined with global positioning and microtagging, provide a mechanism for tracking plastic through the supply chain and support incentive systems for recycling or reusing it and choosing biodegradable options. It is a must-read for executives in the consumer packaged goods industry.
Regulatory Framework For Token Sales
File Type: Document, Infographic
https://www.blockchainresearchinstitute.org/project/regulatory-framework-for-token-sales/
Apr 30, 2018 - This research surveys the global landscape of regulatory frameworks, statements, and decisions, on blockchain-based token sales in the jurisdictions of the United States, Canada, Singapore, China, France, Germany, Italy, Estonia, Switzerland, and Gibraltar, with commentary on Malaysia, South Korea, Israel, Russia, Australia, New Zealand, and the United Arab Emirates. Its expert authors look at initial coin offerings and compare how different regulators are categorizing token sales in their attempts to balance the protection of investors with the stimulus of innovat...
Declaration of Interdependence

https://www.blockchainresearchinstitute.org/project/declaration-of-interdependence/
Jan 16, 2018 - This manifesto for change calls for a new social contract, one that redefines the relationship between individuals in society and the institutions they have created to self-govern. It looks at the four drivers of this change—the Fourth Industrial Revolution, globalization of ideas and the economy, climate change, and demographic shifts due to war, drought, and oppression. It identifies such global disruptions as structural unemployment and inequality; failing education, healthcare, and research and development; human rights violations; and a biosphere in crisis. It identifies the four core change makers—the private sector, the state, civi...
