We are excited to announce that iPoint CEO Joerg Walden was elected co-chair of the working group “Social Impact” of the International Association of Trusted Blockchain Applications (INATBA). Launched with a ceremonial digital signing at the European Commission headquarters in April with iPoint and more than 100 other founding members, INATBA aims to promote the use of blockchain technology by developing a predictable, transparent, and trust-based global framework. It offers developers and users of DLT a global forum to interact with regulators and policy makers and bring blockchain technology to the next stage.
Based on the assumption that Blockchain and Distributed Ledger Technologies (DLTs) offer a unique set of tools to tackle some of the most pressing issues humanity is facing today – including climate change, modern slavery, poverty, inequality, food waste, fraud, and corruption –, the working group aims to leverage Blockchain and DLT to achieve positive socio-economic impact and advance societal goals such as the SDGs.
