Conducted an Introduction to Cryptocurrency and Blockchain for Power sector Employees

Shantanu Sharma
Posted at 9/8/2019

I was privileged to have been invited to the National Power Training Institute in Faridabad, near New Delhi, to conduct a session on Blockchain Technology. I took a session on "Integration of Cryptocurrency and Blockchain in Business and Life". 

It was a small but engaging bunch of participants who have been working in the power sector for quite some time and were oblivious to the change in the technology paradigms of the world. Their interest piqued when I started to speak about cryptocurrencies, which shows that there is interest in the Indian market in this field, but little opportunities to understand it better. They were also interested to know about the various applications of cryptocurrencies using blockchain tech, in the various businesses including the power sector. I helped them take a peek into how blockchain can help in the Loyalty programs, Supply Chain, and Power sector

I also ensured that they saw how Blockchain explorer looks like and what Hashing actually is (used an online tool to demonstrate the same).

How Can Blockchain Fix the Criminal Justice System?

Adam Inyang
Posted at 7/30/2019

I recently took a trip out to Oakland and got to see some pretty amazing landmarks of the Black Panther Party for Self-Defense. One of them is the Alameda County Court building where the #FreeHuey movement reached a fever pitch and where Huey ultimately was received by the people after his 1970 murder trial acquittal. Now, almost 50 years later, we're no closer to realizing a truly unbiased justice system that fairly prosecutes the people of this country. With the industry-disrupting power of blockchain, i think we have the tools to begin reconstructing a system that has unjustly destroyed so many lives. There are many organizations involved with prison-reform, school-to-prison pipeline work, and other areas. In a country that boasts the largest prison population in the world, how can we use blockchain to help address the many blaring issues and disparities we encounter with the American criminal justice system??

i think the work of #ArtistActivists like John Legend and Jay Z should be commended then compounded with innovative blockchain solutions. Without going too far into detail, inmates are often denied simple basic rights, denied access to legal counsel, and are illegally victimized in countless other ways. Last year, the Atlanta city jail system was hacked and ransomed for over $100,000. Blockchain could offer solutions to both inmates and prison officials, and unfortunately, private owners as well.

But imagine, a decentralized and community-owned prison system that reintroduced rehabilitative and educational programs back into the jails. Imagine that that prison was run on solar energy and the inmates grew their own food in their self-sustaining agriculture program. I think that makes too much sense... but i'll get to work on it anyway.

Digital Identity enabled by Blockchain Technology

Rajyeshwari Ghosh
Posted at 7/9/2019

 

In this article, Digital Identity enabled by Blockchain Technology, I explore how Blockchain Technology based start-ups are using this technology to provide Digital Identity solutions to the refugees, undocumented immigrants, and migrant workers. As per UNHCR Global Trends, 70.8 million individuals were forcibly displaced, worldwide, as a result of persecution, conflict, violence, or human rights violations at end-2018. It is said among them are the world's over 25.9 million refugees, many of whom might have left their proof of identifications behind. Without legitimate proof of identifications, individuals do not have access to various social, economic, and legal benefits. Organizations such as BanQu, AID:Tech, Humaniq, BitNation, Moni, and others are creating solutions so that these individuals can live with at least the basic necessities of life. I also mentioned about the benefits as well as the concerns for using this technology. 

Having worked in Technology sector for years now, I believe Technology solutions need to be designed, keeping the end users in mind. In order to do so, we need to use not only the computational logic but also the sentiments and needs of those who would be benefited, ultimately, using these solutions. 

Here is the link to the article - Digital Identity enabled by Blockchain Technology. Look forward to reading your comments.

President Maduro Orders The Bank of Venezuela to Accept Petro Crypto

Adam Inyang
Posted at 7/4/2019

President Maduro is a controversial figure. But love him or hate him, i feel this is a good move for crypto adoption. It's a move that could also help bolster the struggling Venezuelan economy. I think Maduro can be paralleled with Gaddafi in the sense that some of his policies and official actions may be unpopular, but the country is better off with him than with a plated puppet that is used by foreign governments to exploit the country's resources.
