24 Oct.: FundTrack 3rd place winner in WyoHackathon 2020 - Blockchain for social good - Supporting the UN Social Development Goals.
Thank You Everyone!!!...
Helped my good friend Len to bring his FundTrack project up to WyoHackaton speed!...
...much UN SDGs & Cardano Kaizen, sorting FundTrack professional implementation details, its mutual relevance & suitability review for Cardano ecosystem and UN SDGs, writing/honing Appendices.
I first met Len in Fall 2017 as we joined the U of Nicosia digital currencies & blockchain MSc community. Since then we discussed a lot our NGO financial and projects management views. Len was also a very early adopter of Cardano, and managed to convince me to pay attention to the whole ecosystem [including the latest developments with IdeaScale - Project Catalyst: Blockchain for Social Good and the Fund2 Challenge].
So I figured I'd lend a helping hand this time around for the WyoHackaton with Cardano and UN SDGs.
We did pay a renewed deal of attention to the WyoHackaton criteria, and to U.N. SDGs & digital transformation policies.
Not just fleshing out the FundTrack concept, but augmenting it with clear-cut, implementable practical governance methods, see how that pans out in UN SDGs + blockchain environment with a human-centered design geared for wide adoption.
My decades of management, entrepreneurial, and business development experiences, in finance and various industries in the Indo-Pacific region, do also include the ways NGOs work.
I have first-hand experience in designing, self-funding, and implementing on the ground and in person with my local teammates, disaster relief efforts in the Indo-Pacific region, including improvised and decentralized supply chains for direct relief goods deliveries calibrated to pre-identified survivors, thus exempt of FWA- Fraud, Waste, and Abuse.
From Kobe, Japan, January 1995, to Banda Aceh, Indonesia, Boxing Day 2004, to Fukushima & North-East Japan (Tohoku) March 2011, while Sichuan, China, August 2008, was a bit off-limits to foreigners, but some actions could be indirectly implemented.
As for the next level, I'm keen to work on computational law governance & int'l regulatory issues... topic of concern to some autonomous systems convergences around data, algorithms, and blockchain. Followed Ms Caitlin Long since 2017 and became aware of the Wyoming Legislature digital working group and committee, operating online since 2020.
Some of this involves dealing with evolving computationally embedded compliance, risk management, and predictive models, as part of complex adaptive systems, gradually edging out layers of ineffective governance swamped in deep paper paradigm. Think digital personal (self sovereign) identity, a portable economic identity for everyone, but also, post-covid turbocharged human-centered ODR- Online Dispute Resolution, and Alternative DR using escrow on blockchain.
Regulatory coherence and consistency (because it's hard to "simplify" complex systems and nearly impossible to "change" overnight human nature and bureaucracies), standards unification, & int'l interoperability matter, if we want business-legal-tech systems that work for people & warrant access to justice for all and for the Earth we walk upon to keep us alive.
