Purpose-Driven Ecosystems

We face a world in crises, where our very planet is being polluted, over-exploited, and poisoned each and every day. Beyond the value-added by blockchain across industries, distributed ledger technology will provide us with incredible tools to promote sustainable economic development, manage disasters, manage pollution and waste, and fight climate change. Blockchain allows us to engage in purpose-driven innovation.

The Blockchain Research Institute and its research contributors have produced a number of reports on purpose-driven ecosystems and global good, including:

  • Blockchain for Planetary Stewardship, which surveys the landscape of blockchain start-ups, applications, and networks related to climate, sustainability, and governance of planetary resources.
  • Transforming Plastic Pollution with Blockchain, which investigates how distributed ledgers, combined with global positioning and microtagging, provide a mechanism for tracking plastic through the supply chain, further providing support incentive systems for recycling or reusing it.
  • Blockchain for Saving our Seas, which looks at how blockchain technology could help us preserve marine life in our ocean ecosystems. It spotlights the work of Ocean Marine Blockchain Solutions, in collaboration with the Girguis Lab at Harvard University and the Jamaican agency Alligator Head Foundation.
