📍Amsterdam, Netherlands: Christian and Jared spoke on a panel at Reporting 3.0, a conference uniting global stakeholders across the reporting spectrum to co-create design needs and pilot new best practices for future-fit reporting in a regenerative and inclusive economy. Blockchain’s ability to create verifiable, immutable records holds incredible implications for the reporting world, particularly in accounting environmental externalities. Following this, we were honored to speak at the 5th Anniversary Event of Bitcoin Wednesday, one of the largest ongoing community-driven conferences about the Digital Currency Revolution. Many questions arose regarding the pro’s and con’s of our Consortium Model. Though we understand concerns vying for a fully-decentralized, security-first angle, these conversations secured our confidence utilizing this model.

📍 Zug, Switzerland: Christian, Pete, and Jared attended TechCrunch as guests of the conference’s primary sponsor, Streamr. A highlight was watching speaker Vitalik Buterim, the creator of Ethereum. Sporting his trademark shirt, Vitalik shared his perspective on ETH community inclusivity and his dreams of making crypto accessible to all. As proponents of a decentralized future combating climate change — an issue that affects everyone — this message resonated strongly with us, prompting team dialogue about how we can best present ourselves in a way that optimally facilitates stakeholder collaboration. We also hosted a satellite event in Zug to kick off CrytoValley Conference!
📍Caux, Switzerland: We joined a variety of experts, activists, and organizers across the board, such as Tom Duncan, Elizabeth Kucinich, the UNCCD, African Development Bank, the European Comission, and many others to discuss global land issues at Caux Dialogue on Land and Security. Our presentation explored the challenge of international climate finance to engage and include the 500 million small-holder farmers, and introduced Regen Network's developing tools intended to meet this growing need. There was a consensus in the room that distributed ledger technology needs to be explored as a powerful tool for clear and transparent accounting of both financial and ecological records. A number of exciting partnerships were sparked!
