Blockchain for Impact: Sustainability in a Threatened World
Presented by SGInnovate. Partnered With Poseidon
How Technology Can Be a Force for Good - As the threats of climate change increase, how can we use technology to sustain our world? In this session, we will be discussing how Forest Conservation should be our immediate response in combating the ever-growing consequences of climate change and how technology can be used as an enabler through the “reduce” platform and use cases.

Laszlo Giricz, Founder & CEO, Poseidon
Before his emergence as a leader in eco-focused blockchain technologies, Laszlo served for nearly two decades as a business and technology expert for some of the world’s largest investment banks. His clients, including JP Morgan Chase, Deutsche Bank and UBS, enjoyed the results of his ability to develop and integrate custom trading and risk management solutions that were used in some of their most critical business sectors. His experience in these areas, coupled with his keen interests in nature, blockchain technologies and digital assets, gave birth to Poseidon and the reduce platform. Laszlo’s goal is to develop technologies which usher in a new era of problem-solving for humankind's most existential threat: climate change.

Public Blockchain Analytics
All cryptocurrencies by design are built on public blockchains (aka public distributed ledgers), otherwise they would be simply private ledgers. The data in these blockchains are not easy to access or understand. A group of open source developers are working on Blockchain ETL, a project to make the data accessible and amenable to analysis. We'll take a look at the details of what this project does and how it works, as well as what the resulting data can be used for.Topics:
