GoChain Darvaza Upgrade

GoChain Darvaza Upgrade — Increase and burn feesThe GoChain Darvaza fork has been scheduled for block number 17,900,000, which will be signed on Wednesday March 17th at around 2pm UTC.This fork implements two recently voted in GoChain Improvement Proposals:GIP-29 — Increase minimum gas price by 1000xGIP-30 — Burn all transaction (gas) feesDarvaza Gas Crater: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Darvasa_gas_crater_panorama.jpgYou can read more about these proposals in the links above, but the primary purpose of these two improvement proposals is raise the cost of using the network to a reasonable level and reduce inflation. The current transaction prices are simply too low. A regular transfer transaction is currently 0.000042 GO or $0.0000009. Even at 1000x, a transaction is still only a fraction of a penny so it will continue to be one of the most cost efficient blockchains for you to build on. Burning the increased transaction fees will then reduce inflation substantially and potentially cause deflation. Inflation occurs when validators sign a block and get a block reward, just like Bitcoin and other blockchain networks where “miners” get the rewards for signing a block.There are some actions that may need to be taken to take into account these changes:Developers Using GoChainIf you are asking for the suggested gas price from an upgraded node, such as the GoChain JSON-RPC API at https://rpc.gochain.io, you shouldn’t have to do anything. The increase will be picked up automatically.If you have set a fixed gas price or a maximum gas price, you will need to change that to be above 2000 gwei. If you multiply whatever you currently have set by 1000, you should be good.If you are not sure how gas price is being set, you can experiment on the GoChain testnet, where the fork is currently live. You can read more about the testnet in our docs.Node OperatorsNode operators (signers and others) must upgrade ahead of time to continue processing through the fork. GoChain version 3.4.2 or later is required. In most cases, no further action is necessary. However, nodes which override the default gas price parameters with values below the new minimum (2000 gwei) will have to be reconfigured.Other users of the GoChain network typically won’t need to take any action.GoChain Darvaza Upgrade was originally published in GoChain on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.

Governance Phase 2: Steerin...

The GoChain Foundation set out to build a fast, cost-effective blockchain network to solve the Ethereum scaling problem-and we’ve delivered on that promise. Our innovative Proof-of-Reputation consortium is continuing to grow with the most reputable and impressive companies and organizations in the blockchain space. In the last couple months, we’ve onboarded the Pennsylvania State University and Global Roundtable for Sustainable Beef into our signing node consortium.As we continue to add more nodes, the time to begin introducing more democratized and decentralized governance has come. This means ensuring changes to the GoChain blockchain public network, software development and R&D is heard by all stakeholders (Foundation, nodes and $GO token holders). As 2020 comes to an end, we would like to outline the additional steps being taken to further ensure a smooth governance framework rollout into 2021.Going forward, the GoChain Foundation will operate with a steering committee and new governance mechanisms for improving the protocol. Last month the GoChain Foundation outlined a Governance Phase 2 plan for Improvement Proposals & Voting. To date, this has been well received with the support of the community and our signing node consortium.Steering CommitteeThe GoChain Foundation Steering Committee will be the first member-driven governance group instituted in the governance framework rollout. GitHub proposals that meet the minimum threshold to advance will then be formally reviewed and voted on by the Steering Committee to determine if the proposal advances to official community-wide vote.The Committee will be composed of seven members representing the various parties interested in the success of the network. Seats are allocated to represent the following groups:● Two Members are appointed to represent the GoChain Foundation● Three Members are appointed to represent the GoChain Signing Node Consortium● Two Members are elected to represent External StakeholdersMembers of the GoChain Signing Node Consortium will ideally consist of an NGO, Enterprise, and University node. Initial External Stakeholders will be appointed by the GoChain Foundation to serve an interim term (not to exceed six months) until a formal vote is able to be conducted by the community for two new External Stakeholder members. Additional details on the formation of the GoChain Steering Committee, inaugural members as well as the process for submitting candidates for consideration to serve as a potential steering committee member will be forthcoming in a separate update.Advancing Improvement Proposals:There are two major proposals which have surpassed formal support on Github. These proposals are now advancing to an on-chain voting process outlined in the Improvement Proposals & Voting announcement. These proposals will bypass the Steering Committee until inaugurated.1) Proposal to increase the minimum gas fee for public blockchain transactions — GIP #292) Proposal to burn all gas fees — GIP #30Voting for these proposals will be available on the MyGoChain Portal. You must register to vote before Monday, December 7th. Registration and voting instructions can be found here — https://github.com/gochain/gips/wiki/how_to_voteQuestions or Concerns?Please reach out on our Telegram group or email us.Originally published at https://gochain.foundation on December 2, 2020.Governance Phase 2: Steering Committee and Advancing Proposals was originally published in GoChain on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.

Governance Phase 2: GoChain...

The GoChain Foundation’s mission is to promote the long-term success of the public blockchain network and the GoChain ($GO) token to support it. It’s been close to two and a half years since the GoChain mainnet first launched in May 2018. During that time, the GoChain Foundation has remained committed to the growth of a decentralized ecosystem where users can participate in not just the development of blockchain use cases and applications, but also in the governance of the network.There is a lot of confusion about the term ‘governance’. Our belief is that governance is the process of creating and maintaining a framework for collaboration within which innovation is fostered and an enduring good is created that benefits many. A good governance framework includes rules, but also allows the freedom to adapt and grow within those rules. It’s focused on being able to change in response to opportunities and threats. In short, a good governance framework is designed to create enduring value for those who use the system to which it is applied.What is blockchain governance?Blockchain governance is one of the hottest topics today. From ‘code is law’ to more traditional approaches being brought over from public company governance models, experiments are taking place at blockchain companies around the world — with varying degrees of success. Blockchain governance, however it is applied, is about ensuring the integrity of the network and ecosystem around a specific blockchain protocol. It’s about building trust in an emerging technology so that its potential for positive impact on society can be realized.What will be different about the GoChain governance model?The GoChain Foundation started working early on to develop a comprehensive governance framework with GoChain Foundation advisor David R. Koenig, author of the critically-acclaimed booked Governance Reimagined: Organizational Design, Risk, and Value Creation, and architect of Networked and Distributive Governance of a Commons — and idea which was awarded the he inaugural HBR/McKinsey M-Prize for Management Innovation from the Management Innovation eXchange (MIX). Together we’ve compiled what we believe is one of the most extensive frameworks for enterprise blockchain governance to-date which takes into account all the stakeholders in the ecosystem including organizations securing the network, $GO token holders, developers, etc.We view the GoChain ecosystem as a commons — something where its users have access to and a common interest in its long-term success. In sum, GoChain governance will be about ensuring that the GoChain blockchain will be valuable for all and is around for a very long time. Our governance players are networked and distributed. They help preserve and enhance the value of our GoChain commons — something that each stakeholder has an interest in seeing be successful.Such a framework has taken time to develop and will continue to take time to fully implement. However, we are proud to begin to take steps toward it today by inviting two of the most important stakeholders to participate in our governance: our community of $GO token holders and the organizations staking their reputations to operate nodes and run the network.Over the past two years, the GoChain Foundation has been the primary driver behind development of GoChain technology, proposing and approving updates, and building out the network. The plan from day 1 was to build up enough reputation in the network, then begin to pass along the torch to the nodes and the community to make governance decisions.Starting today, organizations operating nodes and $GO token holders will be able to: 1) Propose changes, and 2) register and vote for or against those proposals.Proposing ChangesIn order to submit a proposal, visit the GoChain Foundation github. Proposals must be well thought out and submitted following the submission template. This template includes a 1) summary section with a clear and concise description of what the problem is, 2) a why section where the proposer explains the driving motivation for the change, 3) a specification section with details of how the proposer intends for the change to be implemented, and 4) an additional information to add color, commentary, references, and more.Proposals that will be considered are those that aim to establish voter support for a specific course of action. For example, the direction of software development, or adopting or changing some policy.Proposals that receive a minimum of 50 reactions (“thumbs up” or “thumbs down”) on Github with a minimum of 75% being “thumbs up” will be advanced to a consensus vote on the network. We highly encourage proposers to engage with the community in a positive way both before and after submitting a proposal. Engaging the community will allow you to gather feedback, gauge the sentiment for or against the proposal, and better understand your proposal’s chance of success before investing time in a proposal.Specific details on all of the rules and procedures will be published shortly on the GoChain Foundation website.Voting For/Against ChangesThe beauty of a governance model built on the concepts of Networked and Distributive Governance of a Commons is that it creates a voting system that ensures broad representation of all stakeholders. The ecosystem is designed to be a living entity and a self-governed legal jurisdiction. That’s the difference between successful commons governance and the all too familiar systems which suffer from abusive self-interests, or when regulation is left to governments or overly hands-off self-regulation models (think 2007 Financial Crisis).There are multiple stakeholders in the GoChain ecosystem, but to begin with, two critical stakeholders will participate in voting: 1) the community of $GO token holders and 2) the organizations staking their reputations to operate nodes and run the network. Both stakeholder groups will have an equal share of influence in the vote (50% and 50%, respectively).The initial implementation of voting has been designed with simplicity in mind. It should be simple for stakeholders to vote and simple for the system to tally. All stakeholders will vote through their MyGoChain portal and the vote will be recorded transparently on-chain.Stakeholders will have the option to vote in favor of a proposal (yes), against a proposal (no), or abstain from voting. When the voting period begins, a snapshot of the $GO token balances will be taken of all registered addresses and each stakeholder will receive that number of votes. This means that token holders with more $GO will have proportionately more stake in a vote.For a proposal motion to pass, at least 75% of the non-abstain votes must be in favor of passing it. Additionally, it is especially important that stakeholders in the GoChain ecosystem participate. Therefore, there will be a quorum requirement of 20% for every vote. This means that at least 20% of all votes cast must be non-abstain for the result to be considered valid.Specific instructions on how to vote on your MyGoChain portal as well as details and rules about the voting process will be published shortly on the GoChain Foundation website.Implementing Proposed ChangesIf the quorum requirement is met, and more than 75% of the votes are in favour of activating the proposed change, then the GoChain Foundation team will make every effort to expedite the changes in accordance with the wishes of the stakeholders. In the future, this procedure will become more defined.Proposals Currently Under ReviewThere are two 2 major proposals which are in the process of gathering support on Github. We encourage you to share these with other stakeholders, conduct your own thorough research, and get involved in the process.No worries, we will be hosting an AMA to address any lingering questions or concerns. Additional details and date / time to follow.Originally published at https://gochain.foundation on October 23, 2020.Governance Phase 2: GoChain Improvement Proposals & Voting was originally published in GoChain on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.

An Update on the GoChain No...

The GoChain Foundation’s mission is to promote the long-term success of the GoChain public blockchain network and the GoChain ($GO) token. This process includes the continuous improvement of our network of node partners by updating our node requirements matrix, adding higher reputation corporations, non-profit organizations, and educational institutions, and auditing our existing node network.Over the past year, we have not only added new nodes, including Lenovo, Goldbell Financial Services, Conservation International, Pennsylvania State University, The University of Nicosia, and most recently, the Global Roundtable for Sustainable Beef, but have also removed nodes which no longer fit with the matrix. The vote to remove each node is permanent recorded on-chain. We sincerely appreciate the role that each of these organizations played in facilitating the GoChain network’s Proof of Reputation (PoR) consensus algorithm and validating blocks of transactions produced on the blockchain network, especially in the early stages of our ecosystem’s development.We thank our incredible community as well as our node and commercial partners for their ongoing support. Going forward, we will be introducing measures to further decentralize the governance within the ecosystem and will be publishing an update on these efforts shortly.Originally published at https://gochain.foundation on October 15, 2020.An Update on the GoChain Node Network was originally published in GoChain on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.

Global Roundtable for Sustainable Beef (GRSB) Joins GoChain Network as a Signing Node — GoChainGoverned by a Board of Directors from organizations representing the global beef value chain, the GSRB is now operating a node in support of the GoChain public blockchain networkCOLORADO SPRINGS / RENO, NV, OCTOBER 14th, 2020 — The Global Roundtable for Sustainable Beef (GRSB) and GoChain, a leader in enterprise and government blockchain solutions, today announced the signing of a Node Operating Agreement whereas the GSRB is now operating a signing node in support of the GoChain blockchain network.As a signing node, the Global Roundtable for Sustainable Beef will be one of up to 50 enterprises and organizations to run specialized servers that facilitate the GoChain network’s Proof of Reputation (PoR) consensus algorithm and validate the blocks of transactions produced on the blockchain network. The GSRB blockchain signing node is the third international non-profit foundation to join GoChain’s Proof of Reputation network, joining the Conservation International and Fins Attached.Founded in 2012, the Global Roundtable for Sustainable Beef’s (GRSB) mission is to advance, support, and communicate continuous improvement in sustainability of the global beef value chain through leadership, science, and multi-stakeholder engagement and collaboration. It is governed by a 20 member Board of Directors, which includes leading organizations in the global beef value chain.“GRSB is working to develop beef sustainability goals on a global basis. It will be important to be able to accurately measure and store vast amounts of data and we are excited to be working with GoChain as a Node Operator. In addition, we look forward to exploring how blockchain may fit into making the transfer and validity of this data better”- Ruaraidh Petre, Executive Director, The Global Roundtable for Sustainable Beef (GRSB)“ GoChain remains focused on developing innovative technology products & solutions and collaborating with world class partners to tackle some of the world’s greatest challenges. Achieving responsible and sustainable supply chains requires a truly collaborative effort among multiple stakeholders. With today’s announcement, GoChain takes one substantial step closer towards achieving its mission and social objectives. We are proud to partner with The Global Roundtable for Sustainable Beef as a node signer and are excited about the opportunity to leverage our blockchain technology solutions to address beef sustainability, social responsibility and other industry matters ranging from ethical labor practices, animal health & welfare, deforestation to food safety and assurance.”- Henry Ines, GoChain CEOAbout GoChain’s Proof of Reputation blockchain networkHosted by known and “reputable” corporations such as Lenovo (HKSE: 992) (ADR: LNVGY), DISH Network (NASDAQ: DISH), global nonprofits such as Conservation International, and leading educational institutions such as Pennsylvania State University (Penn State), these nodes foster the growth of the network while providing security through their geographic distribution. As a result, Proof of Reputation has several advantages over its predecessor, Proof of Work (PoW), which is used as the consensus algorithm for Bitcoin and Ethereum.Proof of Reputation networks can scale to more transactions per second with far lower cost and wasted energy. Since all nodes are operated by a diverse set of known, trusted businesses and organizations, there is greater security and less vulnerability to attack by bad actors than centralized ledgers or even distributed blockchains where large ‘mining’ organizations control the majority of the network.About The Global Roundtable for Sustainable Beef (GRSB)The Global Roundtable for Sustainable Beef (GRSB) is a global, multi-stakeholder initiative developed to advance continuous improvement in sustainability of the global beef value chain through leadership, science and multi-stakeholder engagement and collaboration.

GoSwap is Live! — Realize t...

GoSwap is Live! — Realize the Full Potential of DeFi on GoChain — GoChainWhereas Uniswap operates on the Ethereum blockchain, GoSwap operates on the GoChain blockchain in order to benefit from three critical improvements: (1) drastically reduced transaction fees, (2) trade settlement in less than 5 seconds, and (3) increased network capacity.Developed in 2017, the GoChain public blockchain offers a network capacity of over 1,300 transactions per second with an average transaction fee of one-thousandth of a penny. This allows GoSwap users to make tens of thousands of trades for the price of just a few Uniswap trades.Because the GoChain blockchain is based on the Ethereum code, it is 100% Ethereum compatible and, therefore, any ERC-20 token can be easily wrapped using Chainswap, https://chainswap.org, which wraps Ethereum tokens on a 1-to-1 basis within a smart contract.Drastically reduced transaction fees:CoinTelegraph recently reported how $99 gas fees are crippling the growth of DeFi. Unfortunately, the Ethereum network success is also its weakness. As more users transact on the network, the network reaches its capacity of 13 transactions per second and fees skyrocket.Uniswap is a brilliant DeFi solution for decentralized liquidity. However, who wants to pay $10+ USD for a single trade? It’s simply not acceptable that the network fees (NOT the exchange fees) should eat that significant an amount of potential gains.By operating on the GoChain blockchain, GoSwap users benefit from industry leading low-cost fees. In fact, for less than $10 USD, GoSwap users could execute over one million transactions over the GoChain blockchain.Trade settlement in 5 seconds or lessUnless you’re willing to pay excessive fees to outbid other Ethereum network users, Uniswap trades over the Ethereum network often take between 5 and 30 minutes(and sometimes hours). Even worse, many transactions fail to execute entirely. A slow or failed transaction when trading can have severe consequences.All transactions on the GoChain public blockchain settle in less than 5 seconds. For institutions, traders, and investors, this means that they can trust their trades will settle on time, at the price they expected it to, without failing.Greatly increased network capacityThe Ethereum network can only support 13 transactions per second. This means that in any given minute, only 780 users can transact not just on Uniswap, but across the entire Ethereum network including all of its supported dApps. This isn’t nearly sufficient for DeFi to go mainstream with users and institutions.By operating on the GoChain blockchain, GoSwap is capable of supporting up to 1,300 transactions per second, or over 100 million per day.Liquidity providers and Fast.Finance token rewardsUsers can create pools using the token address and pair with any other token (including GO:ETH, GO:BTC, GO:USDC, etc) to add liquidity. Liquidity providers will earn a 0.3% trading fee on all trades in the pool where the trade took place.Traders and the Fast.Finance token rewardsTraders will earn FAST (Fast.Finance) tokens for trading in eligible pools for the first 180 days. The earnings will be based on value (in USD) volume on a daily basis. Learn more: https://help.goswap.exchange/fast-tokensSupported wallets & integrationsTo trade ERC-20 tokens, GoSwap utilizes Chainswap, https://chainswap.org, which wraps Ethereum tokens on a 1-to-1 basis, much like wBTC. Native GoChain tokens can be added to GoSwap using the contract address.About the GoChain FoundationGoChain believes in driving the adoption of impactful technology for the betterment of society and our habitat.

Lenovo Joins GoChain Networ...

Lenovo Joins GoChain Network as a Blockchain Signing Node — GoChainRENO, NEVADA, USA, JANUARY 6, 2020 — GoChain, The Blockchain Company, today announced the addition of Lenovo Global Technology (United States) Inc. (“Lenovo”) as a signing node operator for the GoChain blockchain network.The Lenovo blockchain signing node will be the first of its kind to be operated in a liquid immersion data center for cooling. The server immersion cooling technology, developed by Midas Green Technology, is currently being used by Blockchain Resources Corp to build “green” data centers which will house the Lenovo node. Immersion cooling data centers reduce energy usage through the elimination of the expensive air cooling infrastructure such as server fans, A/C compressors, air-circulation fans, ductwork, air handlers, and ancillary systems such as dehumidifiers.This is not Lenovo’s first venture into blockchain, as they have adopted blockchain technology in product development activities and worked to apply it to internal work processes. In March 2018, Lenovo launched its new smartphone Lenovo S5, which uses blockchain technology to make payments more secure. Additionally, in June 2018, Lenovo joined Hyperledger.“We are extremely proud to not only welcome Lenovo as a Node signer, but to be part of a pioneering effort in green technology. GoChain was founded with a focus on driving adoption of technology for the betterment of society and we strongly support their commitment to reduce energy usage with liquid immersion cooling technology.”- Jason Dekker, Co-Founder and CEO of GoChainAbout GoChain’s Proof of Reputation blockchain networkHosted by known and “reputable” corporations, non-profits and educational institutions such as DISH Network (NASDAQ: DISH), these nodes foster the growth of the network while providing security through their geographic distribution. As a result, Proof of Reputation has several advantages over its predecessor, Proof of Work (PoW), which is used as the consensus algorithm for Bitcoin and Ethereum.Proof of Reputation networks can scale to more transactions per second with far lower cost and wasted energy. Since all nodes are operated by a diverse set of known, trusted businesses and organizations, there is greater security and less vulnerability to attack by bad actors than centralized ledgers or even distributed blockchains where large ‘mining’ organizations control the majority of the network.About LenovoLenovo (HKSE: 992) (ADR: LNVGY) is a US$50 billion Fortune Global 500 company, with 57,000 employees and operating in 180 markets around the world. Focused on a bold vision to deliver smarter technology for all, we are developing world-changing technologies that create a more inclusive, trustworthy and sustainable digital society.

Coco Veda Singapore Pte Ltd...

The Singaporean Social Enterprise with Manufacturing Operations in The Philippines recently tracked its first shipment of coconut and plant-based consumer products, “on-chain” via GoChain Enterprise Solutions’ turnkey SaaS chain of custody system GoTrace.RENO, NV | Singapore, January 1, 2021 — On December 2nd 2020, Coco Veda commenced with the commercial piloting of blockchain technology. Coco Veda utilized GoChain Enterprise Solutions’ turnkey blockchain-based SaaS track and trace system GoTrace. GoTrace is powered by the highly scalable, enterprise-grade public GoChain blockchain developed and maintained by the GoChain Foundation, to track and trace Coco Veda’s products.Coco Veda empowers their all Women Team by training them to enable blockchain technology within the Operations. Co-CEO, Simarna Singh believes “upskilling and educating our Women Operations Team at Coco Veda is fundamental for our growth plans, as it creates digital inclusion for Women which is integral to uplift sustainable livelihoods.” The Women Operations Team at Coco Veda participated in the activation of GoTrace’s blockchain pilot. Simarna shares, “giving access to this platform will advance Women’s Equality which is a $12 trillion opportunity to the global GDP. As a Sustainable Social Enterprise Startup, we are proud to be empowering women for a better tomorrow and through our digital development efforts we hope to accelerate the United Nations 2030 Agenda.” She further states that “for the consumer to appreciate the effort behind the handcrafted manufacturing process, each of our Women will be provided with digital identities.”Coco Veda’s customers and partners now have the ability to confirm authenticity, track the provenance and build sustainable relationships along with trust in their Products and Vision. The pilot provided real-time traceability and transparency to the logistics of the supply chain. The first shipment contained a wide range of Healthy Food, Skin Care, Wellness Massage Oils, Household Cleaning and Pet Care which was successfully exported from Manila on 2nd December 2020, via UPS Express for a parcel to Germany.Coco Veda is proud to launch the pilot and looks forward to offering unparalleled transparency, traceability and auditability for all of its products. The pilot follows the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between Coco Veda and GoChain in October 2019.Despite what has been proven to be a very challenging year for most companies globally (especially SMEs) given COVID-19 strict lockdowns and social distancing requirements, Coco Veda has progressed. Pre-pandemic, Coco Veda was present in 9 countries and one airline, however, with technology being so integral and consumers’ growing concern to lead a preventive healthy lifestyle, Coco Veda has been able to pivot their business model.From a traditional export driven B2B model to a hybrid business model integrating B2B2C partnerships and direct B2C by launching its first Cross Border e-Commerce Platform.About Coco VedaCoco Veda Singapore Pte Ltd began in 2015 with a passion to bring all things natural to the health and wellness scene, and a vision to build a Socially Sustainable Enterprise aligned to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. With sustainable job creation and training, we enable our farmer partners, craftswomen, and their families to build a brighter future and break the cycle of poverty for themselves and future generations.The Journey To Healthy & Natural LivingInspired by Ayurveda (The Science of Life), Coco Veda created a line of health and wellness products handcrafted with their Signature Premium Cold-Processed Virgin Coconut Oil as a key ingredient, which is naturally Anti-Viral, Anti-Bacterial, Anti-Fungal and Anti-Inflammatory. This took a lot of initial hard work over the years, but very soon they became one of the only producers in the coconut industry with more than 100 handcrafted coconut-based health and wellness products.Transforming CommunitiesEvery coconut used in Coco Veda’s production process is harvested by hardworking farmer cooperatives in the rural parts of the Philippines. Working with these coconut farmer communities directly, cuts out the middlemen and gets more money directly into the hands of the farmers. This provides sustainable income for their families and builds a foundation for positive community transformation.Empowering WomenEach Coco Veda product is handcrafted with care by their expert and meticulous craftswomen in Manila, ensuring that the consumer enjoys consistently high quality with every Coco Veda product purchased. By turning their All-Women Team into breadwinners for their families, this helps them grow their self-esteem and self-value, whilst, also improving their standing in the community.Live Healthy .

Proof of Reputation

This is a repost of the original from Feb. 22, 2018. The original was changed along with moving the GoChain blog to the GoChain website. I’m putting this here to have the original up for public reference.GoChain uses a Proof of Reputation (PoR) consensus model that depends on the reputation of the participants to keep the network secure. A participant (a block signer) must have a reputation important enough that they would face significant financial and brand consequences if they were to attempt to cheat the system. This is a relative concept as almost all businesses would suffer significantly if they were caught attempting to be deceitful, but larger companies will typically have more to lose and thus are chosen over companies with less to use (smaller businesses).Once a company proves reputation and passes verification, they may be voted into the network as an authoritative node and at this point, it operates like a Proof of Authority network (PoA), where only authoritative nodes can sign and validate blocks (more on PoA) below.Reputation is EverythingReputation is critical to a business. A business that acts in an unethical way suffers on many levels including financial (fines, loss of revenue), valuation decreases, branding (distrust) and public relations. Trust is cornerstone to a successful business and once a brand loses trust with their customers, it can take years to recover if ever.Let’s use the Volkswagen emissions scandal as an example. They operated alone to deceive the public and their own customers. Once caught, it was both a financial and public relations disaster that cost them $25 Billion, a 50% drop in stock price, and their brand lost a lot of trust. Their reputation was put to the test and they paid dearly for it. Proof of Reputation relies on this risk of significant loss to enable trust in the network.PoR is Very SecurePoR adds a layer of protection that may have never existed before and that is having companies working together to keep each other honest. Imagine if Volkswagen worked with Ford, Toyota and others to validate and verify their emissions tests. It is extremely unlikely that Volkswagen could have even attempted to cheat the system when their competitors are performing tests on each other’s vehicles. And even if they attempted to act in a nefarious way, knowing the risks, once caught, they would quickly be voted out of the consortium and lose their rights to be a part of the network.Also, since these companies are rewarded with native GoChain tokens for running nodes and signing blocks (similar to PoW), it is in their best interest to be honest and keep the network safe and trustworthy.And finally, it would still take 51% of the companies in the network to collude at the same time to perform the infamous 51% attack. This would mean risking the reputation of 26 companies (assuming 50 authorities).About other Proof of Authority NetworksProof of Authority (PoA) works great in a private network, which is what it was originally intended for, where you know and trust the nodes you add to the network. The advantages gained with PoA are hard to ignore so using it for consensus in a public network is a great thing to solve for. The problem is it doesn’t work in a public setting without something at stake. There are a couple of other companies that are attempting to use PoA in a public network, but there are several issues with these networks.One such network is using a network of 12 US Notary Publics. While this obviously has a serious centralization problem, the more important problem is the security of the network.First, there is a disparity between the net worth of the network versus the market cap of the network. This is what Proof of Stake (PoS) attempts to solve. Assuming an average net worth of an individual in the United States is $68,828 [18], the total net worth of the validators is $825,936:12 ∗ $68, 828 = $825,936Even if the number of validators increased by an order of magnitude, the total net worth of the validators is a tiny fraction of the $6.8T in transactions processed by Visa, Inc. every year. This disparity introduces a strong incentive for bribery.Second, validators must post their physical address publicly which opens the potential for intimidation or physical threats. A terrorist organization or rogue state can mount an attack on a large scale financial system by controlling half of these validators.Finally, most individuals lack the experience and infrastructure to run a secure transaction processing system. This significantly increases the network’s exposure to malicious hacking.Rating ReputationThere are a few factors to take into account:Valuation — the higher the value of a company means the more financial risk.Brand — companies like Coca Cola or Apple are very high on the brand scale, almost to the point where you could say brand is everything to them. A coal mining company does not have the same kind of brand risk.Unfortunately these things are not an exact science and need to be evaluated by humans.Technical BenefitsThe benefits of Proof of Reputation are:It’s green — No need to consume large quantities of electricity in order to secure a blockchain (Bitcoin and Ethereum are estimated to burn over $12 million worth of electricity costs per day as part of their consensus mechanism).It’s secure (see above).It can perform much faster due to removing the heavy calculations required for PoW and having a known number and size of nodes.It’s as decentralized as the companies are decentralized.Business BenefitsProof of Reputation has benefits from a business point of view in addition to the technical benefits above. One of the main things is that enterprise companies may be more willing to use a network using PoR than they would be using an untrusted, anonymous network such as one that is using PoW or PoS.In PoR, everyone knows who is operating the network (each company running each node) and where the nodes in the network are running (which country). A company can then decide whether they trust the companies running the nodes and therefore whether they trust the network. If they do trust it, they are much more likely to run a business process on it. We feel this could open the door to new ways that businesses work together using a public blockchain.Onwards and UpwardsGoChain is ready to change the world of smart contracts and DApps by using PoR to drastically increase performance, massively decrease energy consumption, and keep the network secure and decentralized. We believe Proof of Reputation is a great step forward in solving the inherent issues of existing blockchains and cryptocurrencies.More InfoGoChain websiteMore on Proof of Reputation (POR)Proof of Reputation was originally published in GoChain on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.

Two Hands Completes First G...

Two Hands Completes First GoTrace-Tracked International Lobster Shipment — GoChainThe Melbourne, Australia-based company successfully tracked its first Southern Rock Lobster shipment from Melbourne Australia to Shanghai, China with GoChain’s GoTrace softwareOctober 28, 2020 — In May, it was announced that Two Hands would be adopting the GoChain public blockchain protocol and GoTrace Supply Chain Management Platform to track and trace lobster shipments. The Melbourne, Australia-based company today successfully completed its first GoTrace-tracked shipment of Southern Rock Lobster last week. The shipment originated in Melbourne, Australia on Thursday, October 22nd and arrived in Shanghai, China on Friday, where it was served Saturday evening during a wedding banquet at the JW Marriott Hotel in Changfeng Park, Shanghai.Two Hands originally built its distributed ledger track and trace MVP solution on Hyperledger Fabric. After deciding to take advantage of the benefits offered by GoChain, Two Hands has officially transitioned to a private implementation on the GoChain public blockchain platform and launched its next generation digital marketplace, the Two Hands Marketplace.Each individual lobster purchased through the marketplace has a unique, tamper evident Smart Tag which is used like a passport and tracked via GoChain’s GoTrace SaaS software. Chefs ordering through the Two Hands marketplace select from live inventory based on region, harvester or price. On purchase a travel itinerary for the product is created and the initial record is created on GoTrace. As the product travels through the supply chain, its itinerary is validated using the GoTrace app, allowing chefs and consumers to trust that their food or product is authentic, ethically harvested, and more.About Two HandsTwo Hands is a digital marketplace directly connecting fishers, farmers, restaurants and consumers. It is disrupting the food supply chain: restoring provenance, traceability and human connections to the food industry. We are one of the few companies globally to monetise a blockchain platform.In traditional supply chains producers are faceless, their regions invisible, and the supply chain a black box. It is no surprise then that food fraud and inefficient supply chains cost the economy over $100bn annually. Two Hands solves these issues.Two Hands has reinvented food supply chains, using blockchain and smart tagging technology to underpin our solution. We are a Next Generation business, where people, communities, environment and shareholders are all taken into consideration.Two Hands Completes First GoTrace-Tracked International Lobster Shipment — GoChain was originally published in GoChain on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.

GoChain Unveils Global Acce...

GoChain Unveils Global Acceleration Program For Sustainability (GAPS)RENO, USA — July 30, 2020 — GoChain, a leading provider of distributed ledger technology and creator of the GoChain enterprise-grade public blockchain network, today announced the launch of its Global Acceleration Program for Sustainability (GAPS), designed for non-certified, small-scale businesses and cooperatives worldwide.GAPS participants will be able to harness latest emerging technologies, including blockchain, to cost-effectively pursue chain of custody, sustainability and other related certifications; leading to not only positive environment, social impact and community stewardship but also potentially the ability to earn higher incomes and achieve a better livelihood. Most small scale, artisan producers & harvesters do not have the means and resources to individually achieve such certifications. Accordingly, GoChain in collaboration with select partners, will work to support sustainability projects globally and provide qualified candidates with a cost-effective path towards sustainability and chain of custody certifications.“Farmers, fishers, ranchers and all those responsible for the harvest, catch and / or raising of food sources are the lifeblood of our global agriculture and fisheries supply chains. Despite their critical importance, often these harvesters and producers are marginalized, underpaid, exploited, and work daily in challenging conditions. Additionally, many also lack the knowledge, means and incentives to operate responsibly and sustainably, resulting in considerable waste, community loss, and environmental & ecological degradation. The considerable personal and environmental impacts are of paramount concern and many organizations globally are working to develop novel solutions to address and remedy these challenges. GoChain is proud to launch and offer its GAPS initiative to help tackle these complex problems by providing technology-driven solutions and offering a unique global group track and trace scheme designed to improve personal livelihoods, positively impact communities and to support conservation, biodiversity, and sustainability initiatives globally.”GoChain CEO Henry InesThe GAPS initiative consists of two distinct opportunities: a group chain of custody as well as an unique microfinance program.Qualified GAPS participants will be able to utilize GoTraceTM on a group discount basis to track and trace their products as they move through the supply chain. The goal of this program is to help small scale producers on a group basis to accelerate their timeline towards meeting sustainability and environmental standards. All products that are able to be end-to-end, chain of custody verified on the GoChain public blockchain via GoTraceTM will be designated a “GO Transparency Verified” product, which will serve to feature the producers and their products to socially- and environmentally-minded consumers and buyers. Ideally, group participants will be able to steadily grow their business, phase out of the GAPS program, and eventually achieve target standards and certifications.Additionally, the GAPS initiative will also provide $GO token holders an opportunity to support sustainability and small businesses globally as well as the GoChain ecosystem through a novel staking pool program, which is designed to uniquely subsidize qualified GAPS participants to utilize the GoTraceTM System. Participants will be able to utilize GoTraceTM for a period of time, on a renewable basis, to enable blockchain-based track and trace and pursuit of chain of custody designations; as well as to help put the collective businesses on a path towards enhanced growth and sustainability. For their staking support and participation, $GO stakeholders are expected to receive a return, based on their staking with a GoChain Foundation node and the corresponding pro rata rewards, along with the return of principal contribution. The opportunity to stake tokens will be limited initially and on a first-come basis.About GoChainGoChain was founded in 2017 with the mission to drive the adoption of blockchain technology for the betterment of society and our habitat.

Two Hands to Utilize GoChai...

GoChainTwo Hands, an innovative technology startup focused on the development of ethical and transparent supply chains, announced plans to adopt GoChain’s public blockchain protocol and use its GoTrace Supply Chain Management Platform. The Melbourne, Australia-based company, which originally built its distributed ledger track and trace MVP solution on Hyperledger Fabric, will transition to GoChain’s public blockchain platform and thereafter focus future technology development efforts on a next generation digital marketplace to include a novel public curated registry, expected to identify / list and provide top-rated farmers and fishers with unique incentives and rewards.At the heart of Two Hands’ blockchain-based solution offering is the ability to provide end-to-end provenance of products and to disintermediate supply chains thereby enabling a more direct relationship among producers, buyers and consumers.https://medium.com/media/a69579f9264496005a05896872261510/hrefThere is a growing gap between the information consumers want about their products and their access to itFish and seafood products are harvested and traded worldwide. Whether it comes from a small fishing boat or from a farm, both chefs and an increasing number of consumers want to know about the journey and it’s a long way from net to plate! Was their seafood ethically sourced? Was it wild caught or farm raised? What is its social impact?These questions can be difficult to answer without provenance.Aquaculture and commercial fishing typically necessitate complex supply chains as seafood crosses national borders, various continents, trade zones and jurisdictions. The complexity of this supply chain makes it difficult to authenticate the true origin of imported seafood products. Additionally, regional fisheries are plagued with knowledge gaps on catches, by-catches, and environmental impact. Opaque supply chains also lead to over- or illegal fishing, lower income and livelihood for fishers and low quality, modified seafood products.Consumers, Chefs, producers, and management authorities have no choice but to blindly trust what producers and stakeholders in the supply chain claim is true.Two Hands is a digital marketplace connecting fishers directly to consumers and restaurants therefore eliminating middlemen and reinventing the seafood supply chain. Two Hands is closing the gap between the fishers and farmers’ hands to the consumers.“From the farmers hands to yours, that’s our promise” -TwoHands ManifestoTwo Hands & GoChain unite to bring greater transparency, efficiency and security for food supply chains.Knowledge is power. Technological advancements have reached a point in which we are able to learn, verify and authenticate most claims especially for provenance. Consumers are now able to not only easily determine the origination and authentication of food products but are also able to proactively support responsible and committed organizations, vendors and fisheries engaged in ethical and sustainable practices.We know that if a certain fish species is sourced from the same location repeatedly they will eventually have difficulty replenishing. Unethical fishing methods can inadvertently capture more than the intended which results in waste. And we know that illegal fishing accounts for 11–26 million tons of fish each year, which is estimated to be worth US$10–23 billion ( according to the UN FAO). Illegal fishing takes away from legitimate and local fisherman. Supply chain transparency will allow for better maritime governance and is one of the most powerful tools we have to combat these industry challenges.Two Hands and GoChain are combining their strong missions and innovative technology to ensure ethical and transparent supply chains. Two Hands and GoChain share the vision of restoring provenance and human connections to the food industry. The two are working together to take the Two Hands digital marketplace to new heights by leveraging GoChain’s public blockchain and GoTrace platform for end-to-end blockchain traceability, to manage supply chain data, prove quality of product, improve efficiency of product handling and to promote trust and confidence within the Two Hands ecosystem.“We are proud to work with TwoHands and to have the opportunity to use our blockchain technology for the advancement of more ethical and transparent supply chains. Digitally connecting fishers & farmers directly to buyers and consumers not only eliminates unnecessary middlemen and enhances prospects for better income and livelihoods for producers but also optimizes global supply chains for end-to-end traceability, food safety and authentic provenance.”Henry Ines, GoChain CEOGoChain believes in driving the adoption of impactful technology for the betterment of society and our habitat.

Enviva Partners With GoChai...

Piloting of blockchain technology affirms commitment to innovation, sustainability, and transparent biomass supply chainsBETHESDA, Md. & RENO, Nev. — (BUSINESS WIRE) —DECEMBER 21, 2020, Enviva, a leading global energy company specializing in sustainable wood bioenergy, and GoChain, a blockchain company that drives the adoption of impactful technology for the betterment of society and our habitat, announced the initial results of a pilot program designed to enhance the traceability of sustainable biomass.The pilot program identified a select group of suppliers from Enviva’s wood sourcing regions in the U.S. Southeast to monitor various data elements such as: forest tract locations, load weights, fiber commodity types, and forest types. Leveraging GoChain’s blockchain, Enviva was able to monitor the movement of wood fiber in real-time from select forest tracts at the time of harvest to Enviva’s wood pellet production plants with a unique QR code. The pilot provided real-time geofencing, data analytics, and notification capabilities. In total, more than 1,000 loads of biomass were delivered from the forest to the production plant and recorded “on-chain” during the pilot.The results of the pilot yielded considerable insights and the pilot has the potential to further augment the accuracy of Enviva’s proprietary Track & Trace® (T&T®) system, which provides publicly available data and tracks exactly where the low-value wood used in the production of Enviva biomass comes from. The initial pilot is among the largest-scale, if not the largest-scale, pilot of blockchain technology to date in the global biomass industry. Given the pilot’s success, Enviva anticipates further exploration and piloting of blockchain technology.Enviva elected to partner with GoChain on the pilot program because of their dedication to sustainability and innovative green technologies. GoChain has developed a unique, highly scalable and secure blockchain solution that is among the greenest and most energy efficient on the market. It uses a ‘Proof of Reputation’ consensus model for processing transactions. GoChain partners with highly reputable institutions such as universities, global enterprises, and NGOs, which function as blockchain signing nodes for the GoChain blockchain protocol. These organizations have set high business standards and believe in the use of technology for the improvement of society and the environment.Blockchain has emerged as a powerful solution for realizing data-driven insights and granular transparency of global value chains. The use of blockchain technology as a single source of truth not only serves to eliminate unnecessary middlemen and provide transparency in supply chains but also enables the robust real-time audit of secure, time-stamped transactions recorded on an immutable ledger. Blockchain helps to proliferate trust and to verify claims among multiple stakeholders, particularly when relying on legacy, centralized systems with opaque, siloed data. This is especially true when verifying and evaluating claims and certifications within a supply chain. Blockchain is quickly proving to be essential for accelerating certification milestones and ensuring the validity of sustainability governance such as verifying claims of organic and chemical-free products, ethically-sourced seafood or beef, or in the case of Enviva, the sustainability signature of its responsibly sourced wood.Take a look at how the process works:https://www.envivabiomass.comhttps://www.envivabiomass.comAbout Enviva Holdings, LPEnviva Holdings, LP is the world’s largest producer of industrial wood pellets, a renewable and sustainable energy source used to generate electricity and heat.

Governance Phase 2: GoChain Improvement Proposals & Voting — GoChainThe GoChain Foundation’s mission is to promote the long-term success of the public blockchain network and the GoChain ($GO) token to support it. It’s been close to two and a half years since the GoChain mainnet first launched in May 2018. During that time, the GoChain Foundation has remained committed to the growth of a decentralized ecosystem where users can participate in not just the development of blockchain use cases and applications, but also in the governance of the network.There is a lot of confusion about the term ‘governance’. Our belief is that governance is the process of creating and maintaining a framework for collaboration within which innovation is fostered and an enduring good is created that benefits many. A good governance framework includes rules, but also allows the freedom to adapt and grow within those rules. It’s focused on being able to change in response to opportunities and threats. In short, a good governance framework is designed to create enduring value for those who use the system to which it is applied.What is blockchain governance?Blockchain governance is one of the hottest topics today. From ‘code is law’ to more traditional approaches being brought over from public company governance models, experiments are taking place at blockchain companies around the world — with varying degrees of success. Blockchain governance, however it is applied, is about ensuring the integrity of the network and ecosystem around a specific blockchain protocol. It’s about building trust in an emerging technology so that its potential for positive impact on society can be realized.What will be different about the GoChain governance model?The GoChain Foundation started working early on to develop a comprehensive governance framework with GoChain Foundation advisor David R. Koenig, author of the critically-acclaimed booked Governance Reimagined: Organizational Design, Risk, and Value Creation, and architect of Networked and Distributive Governance of a Commons — and idea which was awarded the he inaugural HBR/McKinsey M-Prize for Management Innovation from the Management Innovation eXchange (MIX). Together we’ve compiled what we believe is one of the most extensive frameworks for enterprise blockchain governance to-date which takes into account all the stakeholders in the ecosystem including organizations securing the network, $GO token holders, developers, etc.We view the GoChain ecosystem as a commons — something where its users have access to and a common interest in its long-term success. In sum, GoChain governance will be about ensuring that the GoChain blockchain will be valuable for all and is around for a very long time. Our governance players are networked and distributed. They help preserve and enhance the value of our GoChain commons — something that each stakeholder has an interest in seeing be successful.Such a framework has taken time to develop and will continue to take time to fully implement. However, we are proud to begin to take steps toward it today by inviting two of the most important stakeholders to participate in our governance: our community of $GO token holders and the organizations staking their reputations to operate nodes and run the network.Phase 1Over the past two years, the GoChain Foundation has been the primary driver behind development of GoChain technology, proposing and approving updates, and building out the network. The plan from day 1 was to build up enough reputation in the network, then begin to pass along the torch to the nodes and the community to make governance decisions.Starting today, organizations operating nodes and $GO token holders will be able to: 1) Propose changes, and 2) register and vote for or against those proposals.Phase 2Proposing ChangesIn order to submit a proposal, visit the GoChain Foundation github. Proposals must be well thought out and submitted following the submission template. This template includes a 1) summary section with a clear and concise description of what the problem is, 2) a why section where the proposer explains the driving motivation for the change, 3) a specification section with details of how the proposer intends for the change to be implemented, and 4) an additional information to add color, commentary, references, and more.Proposals that will be considered are those that aim to establish voter support for a specific course of action. For example, the direction of software development, or adopting or changing some policy.Proposals that receive a minimum of 50 reactions (“thumbs up” or “thumbs down”) on Github with a minimum of 75% being “thumbs up” will be advanced to a consensus vote on the network. We highly encourage proposers to engage with the community in a positive way both before and after submitting a proposal. Engaging the community will allow you to gather feedback, gauge the sentiment for or against the proposal, and better understand your proposal’s chance of success before investing time in a proposal.Specific details on all of the rules and procedures will be published shortly on the GoChain Foundation website.Voting For/Against ChangesThe beauty of a governance model built on the concepts of Networked and Distributive Governance of a Commons is that it creates a voting system that ensures broad representation of all stakeholders. The ecosystem is designed to be a living entity and a self-governed legal jurisdiction. That’s the difference between successful commons governance and the all too familiar systems which suffer from abusive self-interests, or when regulation is left to governments or overly hands-off self-regulation models (think 2007 Financial Crisis).There are multiple stakeholders in the GoChain ecosystem, but to begin with, two critical stakeholders will participate in voting: 1) the community of $GO token holders and 2) the organizations staking their reputations to operate nodes and run the network. Both stakeholder groups will have an equal share of influence in the vote (50% and 50%, respectively).The initial implementation of voting has been designed with simplicity in mind. It should be simple for stakeholders to vote and simple for the system to tally. All stakeholders will vote through their MyGoChain portal and the vote will be recorded transparently on-chain.Stakeholders will have the option to vote in favor of a proposal (yes), against a proposal (no), or abstain from voting. When the voting period begins, a snapshot of the $GO token balances will be taken of all registered addresses and each stakeholder will receive that number of votes. This means that token holders with more $GO will have proportionately more stake in a vote.For a proposal motion to pass, at least 75% of the non-abstain votes must be in favor of passing it. Additionally, it is especially important that stakeholders in the GoChain ecosystem participate. Therefore, there will be a quorum requirement of 20% for every vote. This means that at least 20% of all votes cast must be non-abstain for the result to be considered valid.Specific instructions on how to vote on your MyGoChain portal as well as details and rules about the voting process will be published shortly on the GoChain Foundation website.Implementing Proposed ChangesIf the quorum requirement is met, and more than 75% of the votes are in favour of activating the proposed change, then the GoChain Foundation team will make every effort to expedite the changes in accordance with the wishes of the stakeholders. In the future, this procedure will become more defined.Proposals Currently Under ReviewThere are two 2 major proposals which are in the process of gathering support on Github. We encourage you to share these with other stakeholders, conduct your own thorough research, and get involved in the process.Questions?No worries, we will be hosting an AMA to address any lingering questions or concerns. Additional details and date / time to follow.Contact Information:The GoChain FoundationAdam Norris, Director of Operations[email protected]Originally published at https://gochain.foundation on October 23, 2020.Governance Phase 2: GoChain Improvement Proposals & Voting — GoChain was originally published in GoChain on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.

What is Blockchain? A 1,500...

A gearshift is currently needed to address sustainability, and business-as-usual runs the risk of exacerbating the increasingly acute social, economic, and environmental issues of today.This is the key message of the World Economic Forum’s landmark report ‘Unlocking Technology for the Global Goals’, which outlines a plethora of use cases of emerging technologies for sustainability. Unsurprisingly, blockchain technologies comprise a fourth of the mapped-out synergies between technology and solving sustainability issues.Blockchain technologies are immutable, decentralized, and efficient — an antithesis of business-as-usual. Tech writer Daniel Ling highlights how blockchain technology has revolutionized information databases, as it enables a fully transparent, independent, and public ledger for transactions. This has changed the way organizations operate as well, with fraud risks mitigated by immutable and secure blockchain payment systems. With corporate giants like Maersk and Walmart leveraging blockchain platforms in their supply chains to boost transparency and efficiency, we’re beginning to see why blockchain technology can be a viable solution for a sustainable future. Here’s how:1. ‘See-through’ supply chainsGlobal supply chains are often complex and, to some extent, opaque. While many companies have committed to mitigating supply chain risks such as human rights violations, corruption, and environmental degradation, there remains a wide issue of transparency. By leveraging blockchain platforms, full transparency and traceability can be uncovered in the entire supply chain. Last year, the World Wildlife Fund partnered with BCG Digital Ventures to create a blockchain that tracks tuna catch from sea to table. By recording the entire process in an immutable decentralized ledger, the organizations hope to deter illegal, unreported, and unregulated fishing in the high seas.Conservation International is a global environmental organization that works with various stakeholders in identifying and protecting nature’s bounty, which humans are dependent on. They recently partnered with GoChain as a node validator and also to pursue novel blockchain-based sustainability solutions centered around transparency and green, responsible supply chains. GoChain’s Proof of Reputation blockchain network minimizes resources and costs while also tightening security because of the diversity of nodes in operation. GoChainis working with Two Hands — a brand dedicated to direct harvester to consumer contact and undisrupted supply chains. Using GoChain’s blockchain-based track and trace products and solutions, Two Hands is looking to evolve from existing POC or MVP blockchain-based traceability solutions to a truly distributed and scalable track and trace system. This will be capable of covering all kinds of actors and logistics through a means that is also cost-effective.2. Sustainable resource managementDigital assets developed on top of blockchains also present an opportunity to improve sustainable goals of equity and accountability. Blockchain platforms can improve peer-to-peer transactions, dynamic pricing, and optimal balance between supply and demand. As such, CCN editor Samburaj Das writes that the World Food Programme (WFP) has launched a project called Building Blocks, which enables transactions of WFP Food and cash on a public Ethereum blockchain. The pilot, which transferred cash to over 10,000 Syrian refugees, saved the agency $150,000 a month, including 98% of bank-related transfer fees. In the same vein, IBM is spearheading the project Call for Code, which aims to develop blockchain applications for funding and coordinating disaster preparedness and humanitarian relief. This aims to eliminate the constant asymmetry of demand and supply in disaster relief efforts.3. Transforming carbon marketsLastly, blockchain technology can significantly improve how carbon emission is traded, facilitate clean energy trading, and improve flows in financing climate change mitigation projects. Companies, states, and organizations today buy what are called carbon offset credits to compensate for the carbon dioxide they emit. By recording these transactions on an immutable blockchain, buyers are guaranteed transparency and are assured that the transactions are valid and settled automatically. Using tokens created on the blockchain, consumers can buy, sell, or exchange renewable energy with each other. Currently, China uses a ‘Carbon Credit Management Platform’ on a blockchain developed by Energy-Blockchain Labs and IBM, which introduces smart contracts in carbon trading. Likewise, another platform called Poseidon utilizes the Stellar blockchain to let consumers offset their carbon emission ‘voluntarily’ through an app.Blockchain’s decentralized and transparent nature makes it a perfect match for radically changing the centralized and opaque nature of most complex businesses and processes today. In that light, it represents a viable partner for creating a sustainable future.Originally published at https://gochain.io on May 7, 2020.What is Blockchain?

Pronatura Noroeste & GoChai...

Pronatura Noroeste & GoChain To Launch Twelve-Month Pilot In Support Of Seafood Sustainability & Fishery Improvement Projects In Mexico — GoChainQualified fisher cooperatives will be on-boarded via GoChain’s Global Acceleration Program for Sustainability (GAPS) initiative and be able to leverage GoChain’s blockchain-based chain of custody system for seafood traceability and accelerated sustainability certification purposes.RENO, USA / ENSENADA, MEXICO, OCTOBER 21, 2020 — Pronatura Noroeste A.C., an award-winning, leading environmental organization in northwest Mexico, and GoChain, a global leader in enterprise and government blockchain solutions, today announced plans to collaborate on a pilot leveraging blockchain and other technology solutions in support of Pronatura Noroeste’s marine conservation and sustainable fishing initiatives. Pronatura Noroeste is the north-west regional representation of the Pronatura National System, Mexico’s oldest and largest conservation organization.GoChain and Pronatura Noroeste will initially work together on a twelve-month pilot project in coordination with two cooperatives from the western coast of Baja California, Litoral de Baja California and Eripac, and their red rock lobster and sea urchin Fisheries Improvement Projects (FIP), respectively. Specific details on each FIP can be found at the end of this document.The objective of this pilot project is threefold:(1) To assess the value and benefits of blockchain technology for granular track and trace and remote auditability purposes relative to existing solutions;(2) To help fisher participants’ expedite the timeline for achieving sustainability certifications on a highly subsidized, cost-effective basis.(3) To empower and improve the livelihoods of local fishers and to potentially provide new market entry opportunities.With regard to each of these Fishery Improvement Projects, Pronatura Noroeste along with the participant fishing cooperatives will work with GoChain to leverage its turnkey blockchain-based track and trace system, GoTrace, to help fishers with their track and trace needs and to expedite the timeline for achieving select sustainability standards and certifications, specifically the MSC Fisheries Standard.Qualified fishers will be onboarded via GoChain’s Global Acceleration Program for Sustainability (GAPS) Initiative, which GoChain recently launched to support non-certified, small scale producers and harvesters globally with their sustainability and certification requirements. The pilot project will launch in Q4 2020 and comprise initially approximately [20] fishers across two fishing cooperatives located in northwest Mexico. Pronatura Noroeste currently works with nearly nine hundred (~900) fishermen across 13 cooperatives supporting red rock lobster and sea urchin FIPs in the Pacific coast of Baja California.“Fish are core components of the marine ecosystem, and stock depletion has a significant, and many times irreversible impact on the structure and function of biological communities in the ocean environment. An effective traceability system, like that provided by GoChain, will allow consumers to connect seafood to the fisheries sustainability efforts that are critical for both marine conservation and for coastal communities that depend on fishing. Traceability tools will help to tell the story that comes with every seafood product, giving markets the opportunity to provide clear incentives for better fishing practices.”- Dr. Gustavo D. Danemann, Executive Director of Pronatura Noroeste A.C.Seafood is one of the largest industries on the planet, contributing 12% to global livelihoods, and it isn’t stopping there. Over the past 50 years, per capita consumption of seafood has nearly doubled. However, the industry is often unregulated and nearing capacity. Presently, 89% of global wild fish stocks are overfished or being fully exploited, creating an increasing demand on fisheries.To make things more challenging, the fragmented global supply chains used to transport seafood from catch to a consumer’s table are plagued with three main problems: (1) Stakeholders lack end-to-end visibility, leading to fraud, high costs, & regulatory violations. (2) Stakeholders have difficulty reacting to demand shifts due to inefficient data systems. (3) Stakeholders & end-users do not have transparency into the product history, sustainable sourcing, and more.To address these issues, GoChain’s blockchain protocol paired with the GoTrace software allows every step, from the origin to consumer, to be recorded on an immutable, distributed ledger. This results in a transparent and secure history of seafood that consumers, regulators, and other stakeholders can trust. Margins are improved for fisheries. Consumers have confidence in what they eat and build relationships with trust brands. Regulatory bodies can crack down on fraud.Pending progress and outcome of the initial pilot, GoChain and Pronatura Noroeste anticipate identifying additional initiatives and opportunities for leveraging GoChain’s GoTrace system with other Pronatura Noroeste fishery sustainability and conservation programs throughout Mexico.“We look forward to working closely with Pronatura Noreste, Litoral de Baja California, Eripac and other local fisher communities with their certification efforts, to enhance market competitiveness with blockchain-traceable seafood products, and ultimately to improve livelihoods. We support and commend these fishers for their commitment to the FIPs and see this upcoming pilot as a great opportunity to showcase the benefits of blockchain technology and how it can be leveraged to advance sustainability, achieve milestones and realize greater transparency throughout seafood value chains.”- Henry Ines, GoChain, CEOMexico Baja California red rock lobster FIPThe Mexico Baja California red rock lobster (also known as California spiny lobster) FIP is being implemented to obtain the certification for MSC Fisheries Standard. The interest of implementing this FIP arose from the project Fish for Good of the MSC, whose results identified the potential of the red rock lobster fishery on the west coast of Baja California, Mexico, to enter in a process of fishing improvement. As part of the initial stages of this FIP, the fishery is also entering the ITM (In Transition to MSC Certification) program of the MSC.The target stock is ranging from the US-Mexico border to Cedros Island along the western coast of Baja California. The southern stock is already in an MSC certified fishery, thus there is a possibility that both stocks could be in the future the same Unit of Certification (UoC). The fleet is licensed and registered fishermen in Baja California, operating small vessels with wire traps, organized in fishing cooperatives.The FIP stakeholders are these fishing cooperatives, federal and state governments, an independent consultant and Prontaura Noroeste. These stakeholders developed a work plan to meet the improvement recommendations from the MSC pre-assessment to achieve a sustainable fishery status by the end of 2024.Mexico Baja California North Pacific red sea urchin FIPThe Mexico Baja California North Pacific red sea urchin — diver-caught FIP is being implemented to obtain the certification for MSC Fisheries Standard. The interest of implementing this FIP also arose from the project Fish for Good of the MSC, whose results identified the potential of the red sea urchin fishery on the west coast of Baja California, Mexico, to enter in a process of fishery improvement. As part of the initial stages of this FIP, the fishery is also entering the ITM (In Transition to MSC Certification) program of the MSC.The target stock is distributed along the western coast of the Baja California Peninsula from the Coronado Islands to Cedros Island in Baja California. The fleet is licensed and registered fishermen in Baja California, operating small vessels with hookah-equipment, organized mainly in fishing cooperatives.The FIP stakeholders are these fishermen, federal and state governments, an academic institution and Pronatura Noroeste. The stakeholders developed a work plan to meet the improvement recommendations from the MSC pre-assessment to achieve a sustainable fishery status by the end of 2024.About Pronatura Noroeste A. C.Pronatura Noroeste (PNO) is a Mexican non-governmental nonprofit organization established in 1996, dedicated to the conservation of natural areas and resources in northwest Mexico. PNO´s Marine Conservation and Sustainable Fishing Program has adopted Fisheries Improvement Projects (FIP) as a tool to conduct key small-scale fisheries toward sustainability. Through the design and implementation of a FIP, the fisheries stakeholders (particularly fishers and distributors) commit to modify strategic aspects of the management and operation of a fishery, in order to upgrade its performance as measured by clearly defined indicators. Implemented actions are evaluated by external reviewers, which grade the fishery through each level of improvement until the fishery becomes certifiable as “sustainable”, as defined by the international standards established by the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC). So far, PNO´s partnership with the MSC, fishing coops, communities, and other environmental organizations allowed the implementation of seven FIPs in northwest Mexico, developing the in-house technical capacity to promote actual improvement in the management and operation of the target fisheries.About GoTraceGoTrace is a turnkey blockchain-based Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) track and trace platform.

Long lines, frustrated people, burnt out employees, repetitive paperwork — this system has gone unchanged for decades. Perhaps rightfully so, vehicle registration is very cumbersome. From manufactures, law enforcement, and insurance providers, multiple parties involved are all trying to coordinate via paper and digital systems that are fragmented, prone to errors, data manipulation and duplication.Vehicle registration centers are internationally known for their inefficiency — source:independent.orgHow Can Blockchain Help?Vehicle registration and licensing systems are incredibly reliant on centralized databases with limited interoperability. Introducing a single, immutable and unalterable digital ledger can alleviate many of the pain points involved. All parties would be guaranteed to be working with the same data, duplicates and fraud could be eradicated, and consumers could interact with this entire system from their fingertips at home or mobile. To understand further, let’s look at what a vehicle registration life cycle could look like built entirely on blockchain:Manufacture: Smart contracts are integrated into Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) processes and use API to mint a unique NFT token for every VIN.Dealerships: Upon delivery manifest and receiving processes, NFTs are transferred to dealer ownership.Insurance Agency: A digital insurance card is issued to the consumer with a provable policy via QR code checking blockchain.Consumer: Upon car purchase, dealers transfer NFT to customer. Insurance policy is verified via QR code from consumer’s digital card. The dealer sends a transaction with customers metadata to a smart contract controlled by registration authority department. Title, registration and other documents are digitally provided to the consumer.Registration Authority: Internal registration and system portals are synced with blockchain to receive and update driver profiles with new ownership from dealers transaction. Fees associated with registration can be paid digitally via dealer. License plates, tags and other physical paperwork is sent to address on file.Law Enforcement: Police can issue violations straight to drivers via license plate or VIN scan, even if not present. No more stolen parking tickets or wind blowing them away. Authorities could also suspend drivers licenses for failure to renew, or lapsed insurance in real-time. Drivers could be immediately notified via registration authority app synced to blockchain API. Payments for violations can be accepted digitally.All the above steps can always fallback to legacy processes if the customer does not wish to participate. Digital identity management can be added on top of registration authorities systems for digital drivers licenses. Renewing licenses or tags is as easy as signing a transaction with your car’s NFT and sending to the registration authority with a digital payment to update.Below is an example overview of technical architecture for a registration authority using the GoChain blockchain:Build a next generation vehicle registration systemBlockchain technology is being implemented world wide for use cases such as vehicle registration due to its ability to manage financial transactions, asset transfers and regulatory obligations.

GoChain — Property Rights &...

GoChain — Property Rights & Land TitlesIn 2010 Haiti was hit with a 7.0-magnitude quake that leveled much of the capital Port-au-Prince and left 1.5 million Haitians homeless. In the chaos of the aftermath, international agencies relocated homeless families to undeveloped and empty land 10 miles north of the capital. Within months thousands more claimed plots and started rebuilding homes without true legal title to the land.This would expose a serious problem for Haiti.Without a system or registry of land tenure the disputes piled up as people began returning to their land only to find that others had claimed it. With no proof of ownership, it was impossible for these disputes to be settled and those who previously owned land were now having to forfeit their rights as landowners. Furthermore, this made it difficult for Haiti to receive aid as donors did not have assurance as to whether they were helping the rightful landowners or not.Disputes over land tenure are not unique to Haïti. In India, about one-third of the 11 million civil cases pending in courts involve disputes over property ownership. According to the World Bank , 70% of the world’s population lacks access to land titling.Even the United States of America’s system is subject to vulnerabilities. US title registry relies on stacks of paper documents requiring hand signatures and manual input from intermediaries. The intermediaries who often make mistakes in recording data. The overall system is outdated and lacks security, verification, protection and trust.Dayton claims slander, sues in prairie land fightThree reasons you need an effective property and land registry systemRegistered property and documented ownership of land is necessary to protect ownership rights and support investment, productivity and growth. Along with cadaster and surveying systems, land registries are needed to prove and secure property and use rights. Land registry systems are part of the land information ecosystem an detrimental to a growing and peaceful economy. The benefits of land registration extend from the citizens to governments.Institutions need reliable information in land registries for matters such as assessing and collecting taxes adequately. Other benefits include the efficient provision of services and infrastructure. As well as help in facilitating the expansion of urban areas and assist city planning to avoid or mitigate the effects of environmental or climate-related risks to urban populations. Authenticity, security and trust is absolutely pertinent to the efficiency of title registries, however there are still many obstacles within the current registry system.1. Reducing or eliminating time delaysCurrently the application process with Land Registry in the US can take up to 16 weeks to complete. During this gap legal problems can arise. Delays in processing documents by the Land Registry can have far-reaching consequences, especially in real estate transactions creating stress and headaches for everyone involved. One of the most important parts of the home buying and selling process is conveyancing — the legal act of transferring home ownership from the seller to the buyer. If document retrieval is delayed during this process you may have to cancel the conveyance altogether.2. Stopping fraud and real estate scamsThe real estate industry is extremely profitable. Big money and big opportunities. This can attract criminals who use creative ways to expose vulnerabilities in the title registry system and scam victims all over the world, whether buyers, sellers or realtors. One of the most notorious scams involves title fraud.Scammers will fabricate documents to make it look like they are the property owner. They use these fraudulent documents to take out a new mortgage on a property. With a secured loan, the scammer can take the cash and leaving the real owner with the remaining payments and a legal battle. This can be prevented by using GoChain’s tamper proof system for title registry.3. Preventing human error and improving document managementState governments are responsible for creating and managing public documents such as property documents, deeds and titles. Unfortunately, those in charge of these important records are only human so mistakes are inevitable. Records can have mistakes such as name misspellings, wrong addresses, or misinformation including the use of incorrect social security numbers. Most public record discrepancies are harmless, but on property records, they can affect the sale and purchase of a home, causing delays and sometimes completely canceling the sale or purchase of property.How GoChain’s blockchain is evolving the way property is registeredGoChain’s blockchain-based registry not only provides the solutions mentioned above, but satisfies the requirements of an effective registry system without the high ticket price of building a custom blockchain.GoChain’s registry reduces and eliminates time delays by tracking property titles, verifying ownership, and keeping a record of all transactions in real time. There would no longer be a registration gap of weeks or months. Equally, blockchain technology could enable title to the property to be transferred to the buyer immediately funds are received into the seller’s solicitor’s account. The process of buying and selling a home should be painless and fastGoChain’s registry eliminates fraud and scams by ensuring the authenticity of title documents as each transaction on the blockchain is verified with mathematical proof. GoChain’s decentralized network of high reputation network validators including Dish Network (NASDAQ: DISH) ensures the added advantage of a secure, tamper-proof ledger system for data management. Once a document is added to the registry, it can never be hacked or edited by a bad actor.GoChain’s registry significantly decreases the risk of human error by offering a digitized system with immutable transactions. Each change and update to the registry is continually examined and verified on the network — No changes or transaction can take place without 100% verification of its authenticity. Using blockchain ensures an interoperable title registry and the potential to make investing, transacting and leasing real estate more efficient and more transparent.“As for the benefit of a blockchain-based land registry, look to Haiti. There are still people fighting over whose land is whose. When disaster struck, all of their records were on paper, that being if they were written down at all.” — Elliot Hedman, Chief Operating Officer of Bitland GlobalAdoption of blockchain for land registration has begun in many countries including the Ukraine, Georgia, Sweden and Dubai. The Dubai Land Department has announced the implementation of a blockchain system to record all real estate contracts. Additionally, the platform will record updates that occur after a property sale such as recording liquidation and payment defaults or changes to the mortgages. This also incorporates the management of personal tenant databases, including identity cards and residency visas, and allows payments to be made electronically directly between transaction participants.Build the next generation of title registries on chainBlockchain technology is being implemented world wide for use in land registration due to its ability to manage financial transactions, asset transfers and regulatory obligations.
