BC100+ explores the potential of blockchain technology to address systemic issues such as inequality, poverty, and climate change by rebuilding trust, empowering communities, asserting accountabilities, and re-distributing value on the global level. With its core features, blockchain technology could play a role in the acceleration of much-needed changes within our global food system, energy infrastructure and biodiversity protection among other issues.
