Very interesting conversation that. Now, next up, we have Creek today is actually right to explore, just how blockchain technology is able to instill, a more sustainable future. With her pile of expenses, one. I've been looking forward to you and I see what they have to say. Awesome. Welcome, welcome. Welcome, everybody. I'm super super excited for this conversation. I would have been able to jump into this amazing, amazing channel. So welcome everybody. Say we are talking about how to smack you watching for a

more sustainable future. So it's going to be very interesting and I'm very excited to dive into the first time you actually, right? I am and I also want to get a chance for our amazing panelists also introduces and go ahead with Mark Capital with you early and growth investing in a range of different Industries. All of which would intersect with the boxing referee. Only thing weighs. We are focus on security, fintech data platforms. 2017. Galant Infinity

more recently blockfi and awesome. Thank you so much and going to pass it over to Austin. Welcome, Austin. Hey, Ashley, and everybody else great to be here and big. Thanks to Draper going home for hosting us and all the sponsors and speakers that made the possible. It's been a been a great day. So I quit Snapchatting me and pass it along. So I I am the co-founder of electricity which is all about decarbonizing cities at scale benefiting the Community First. And the, you know, if I'll get into that during the

panel. I'm also a co-founder of some other technology Ventures. So I've been working with your going home over the years. Joseph recently in Dubai and really really big supporter of a team. So I'm excited to be here and write you a shot, everybody. Thank you so much. You're definitely said, it's a high view. I also seen you have a doctor van. Welcome. How are you that? Thank you, everyone for Darlene, taking time to join this panel, as well. And I would like to introduce myself as a serial entrepreneur traveling to the last 15 years. And since 2015.

I've been working on blockchain and trying to create an ecosystem which includes exchange some some of the projects and recently this exchange business. We went public in last July and so you and Han Solo by providing a lot of activity. Back in 2016. We are trying to create how or a 3.0 can create impact on on the, on the on the unit t, g v. That's amazing. I'm actually really excited to dive into that as well. So, thank you so much. Hey, how's it going to Ashley, Austin? Mark and tell dr. Been great. Seeing

an investment company in advisory called 72 bluxome investment, which was been working on the field since 2016 and I co-founded do you sell a blockchain lab? Which is now blockchain if you sell a where we teach true that the prop campus about the different applications of blockchain. My personal Focus doesn't like his own security tokens and was blood we wrote a book called The sto Financial dilution and that's a little bit about me, get it on Amazon. All all proceeds go to UCLA.

Perfect. Definitely check that out for sure. How are you? I'm, well, how are you? Yeah, thank you so much, Ashley for having me and dripper going home as well. I'm very excited to be speaking with all of you and do. My background is from blockchain technology. And actually G is in tracking from the University of Waterloo. A couple years back. I found it, but your words, which is my company. And I'm also the CEO of is. So, our focus is mainly, it's a digital rewards platform. So we also, we focus on rewards for shopping for consumers, that the

same time. We also offer out payment processing for for businesses and consumers as well when they shop on Merchants. I love that. That's really, really exciting. I know you're also from Toronto, which I am as well. But yes, everyone, thank you so much for the amazing. Introductions. I'm really excited to dive in here. A little bit more about your perspective, of course receive conversation. So, yes, you are able to leverage locked in for a more sustainable future

asking, you know, what are some of the key characteristics when it comes to blocking technology. I would say that, like, you want you want the general overview of why blockchains and praying, I think that if the concept of embracing different players, right? So something we always go over and classes like the world. As we know today has been a centralized environment where a few players control all the data and how the date of transact Amon prep users in different Industries.

And I think that the thing that it's interesting about blockchain tribute Ledger technology that allows multiple players participate, right? And then by doing, so you bring all the buzz words that we've talked about for your transparency mutability trustworthy and efficient. Great example device. Yes, perfect. Perfect. Thank you so much. I was going to have to talk tonight if you wanted to add anything as well. And turns of Well, I need to bring it to the simplest level. I

think that was Bitcoin did and was blocking, does is it allows people to have the world's greatest barter system right for peer-to-peer transactions. There's been no way better up until now to do it. And, you know, going back as far as glass beads and shelves. Those became very easy to counterfeit and to trick people and trade them the wrong thing, but you can't do that with Bitcoin. You can't do that with any real crip. Do you know somebody with Nico and raised something that false promises but with any real cryptographic transaction and it can't be defrauded. So I'm I I

think what it is a gave people, the world's best water system and the world best time clock and those two things are very important at the base levels of any transaction any time stamping, her long, the data. So so yeah. Related to blockchain, you know, I'm on the side of guy at heart. I like building companies and most of them are in this world. So so yeah, very important thing for Humanity. It's a piece of meat frogs us, just like the phone did the computer dead cars. Did the mobility of all that stuff. I

think we're at the crypto is a kind of another LeapFrog moment for us as Humanity. Yes, I definitely agree with you. I think majority of people hear about cryptocurrency and they think that's the only application but that's literally just one, right. There's so many different applications to think about a corset. He's popping and sustainability. You would like to hear from you. Basically, if you look at any other than place, I can get a lot of influence about know how, how the things have musically done. But if your

activities all decent life. So I'm not Democratic level. So you can come around this technology and you can give you something in your shed. You in 2016. We created this Initiative for black and white bag with the support of Public Relation and unn spg's. What state is Alderbrook chain service providers of potentially go to work at that time. I came in, they put system try to create impact. And leveraging the 17th of January 3rd of un and how we can initiate uofc blockchain

in to see how we can deploy these. And, you know, I choose the un's Call of Duty 2030 17, goals to how we can contribute a lot of initiatives around that that also include like three point Roblox vacation, where one of the groups from Asia. Came out with providing education, Insurance healthcare, insurance medical and health for free. So that is right. Now that is a chewable because she has an underlying technology going to send a note that I decide which they are leaving from the policyholders and giving them credit in terms of

truck noises. Text Mommy comes into the picture and Dad couldn't stand by you in 20. Origin for u.s. Policy of Premium renewal renewals Etc to the real usage of blockchain can comment. So yeah, so that's that's what's up. I'm so happy. Yeah, I mean, I think that blockchain has proven its employees of the years to really show examples of how we can use this incredible technology, and Prince and Slick. If I wanted to get money to China tomorrow. I'm not going to go through a bank. I'm going to be using Bitcoin for some sort of cryptocurrency. Right?

So I think it's really been helpful to a lot of different Industries, a lot of different ways and it's only getting more and more Innovative as we go on cuz we're figuring out new ways of using it, new implementations of it. So I think that it it really has good potential to be even bigger than what it is right now. Yes, I definitely agree with you. I think there's a lot. Definitely that Scott can definitely be done in the future, for sure. I think is water potential.

I already got to think about them both ways. What, you know, what is its energy usage look like and how to how those equations change the early days? Wasn't that great, but I think it's actually in my View kind of counterintuitive. It sits out a really positive impact in some ways were the few companies out there that are finding ways to find really not traditional sources of energy, that might be wasteful, like gas, flaring, his company called Caruso energy. That's going and putting facilities where otherwise gas would get flared. So probably create more

greenhouse gas. Still burning the gas, but using it to to mine. Bitcoin is a really unique, you know, turn on Staples on energy usage, but then I think a lot of other people are watching use casings or energy, use casings, or what-have-you is really really amazing. And so you can think about changing the way people think about sustainability because you can send them differently. The potential for blockchain globally, essentially. I love that. You want to elaborate on little bit, which is talking about some of the

words when the problems we're facing right now in some of those. Well, I think I think energy we're seeing where I mean consumption of energy for mining is one that I think is getting a dress pretty well. That's just another approach to that is to change from there. A bunch out there that are a computer. Probably will show up and also another great use case for for blockchain is still pretty early days of supply chain. There's all kinds of problems in the world today.

I definitely agree with you. I also want to pass it over to the Austin to punish are, you know, some examples of some other problems are also facing right now that she solved. Sure. Yeah, and you just touching, I'm kind of something more, you know, spark in my brain really quick regarding sustainability. I think, right? Or energy systems are networks. Other than that, we do in our daily lives because most people aren't going to live in a village like this true sustainability living off the land, not polluting it all, you know, but

most people don't live that way in the modern world so cold with, you know, what they're doing a show Revolution. And actually crude oil is more efficient and storing energy and transferring around the world than coal. And then, ultimately gasoline with you mentioned is still flared off. In some situations if it's too far out or unusable to some degree was predominantly flare. Overall, until they realize they can do for cars. I was very efficient fuel for cars in other systems. Like that in our modern world is using technology to keep advancing in making our

systems are reducing the carbon footprint. So, one of the ways that, you know, focusing on that in in the real world is we'd be received and working with the California energy commission. A large grant for a $28,000 community East Los Angeles. I'll come back without kado on her website and everything and it actually there's a team currently playing others are in Glasgow. If it's yopi 26 announcing a lot of amazing things working with local carbon Parts, which we can touch on later. But in Los Angeles time using blockchain to

create a fish in officially managed Network to give people incentives. I'm so full disclosure. And so we're going to be integrating some of Systems into these communities. Would really, I mean, that's how the world Works value. And upside, they will do the thing that align with that your behavior. If you, if there's no outside, people going to keep saluting and doing doing the bad things that that we're currently do. And I think we're obviously in a Consciousness shift overall specially with what happened, past couple years, and what we saw the impact of what happens, if the

traffic stops for a day or a month or a year and in Flight slow down and it has a big impact but it does have to stop at just need to get more efficient. So yeah. Creating these types of communities learning to them cuz they're not perfect from day one and they are subsidized like a lady. So I got rid of people have too often that, right? Like we have to do a lot of community outreach to get people to participate in programs, can't force people to do it, but the incentives parts are really the most interesting things to the people. Answer, the big

companies record all these big companies or firstly buying carbon credits, but what if there's better ways? Do it then just buying and and greenwashing and kind of slipping it under the rug like actually create communities from the bottom out that are decarbonise from day one. So, I think that's what we're going to start. See all around the world. Yes, I am excited about that. I also would like to hear from Alex is. Well in terms of what are some examples of some of the problems that we're facing right now. Well,

I think that one of the key things that you have an ability, is it really that allegation of, what's being done? Right? So carbon credits generator indoors about like three thousand different carbon-credit. How do you validate? Those three thousand different types of assets? Write them this, you at the clock. Where are they being generated? How are they being treated? How did he negotiated? So as we rolling through this first or error of PSG widely supported by the Bible in the administration. I think that

blockchain specially into carbon credits and going to be a very elegant solution and how to like great an order for a new asset class. That is frankly like very scattered. Definitely. Yes, definitely agree with that as well. And Millennials to actually be encouraged to defeat their carbon Footprints, right? How can we have one thing as an incentive or get them motivated to do? So, I'm basically for all of us, right? When you see the new generation of crypto, Bitcoins be coming to the Moto G sustainability of

the great impact motor wire, wire blockchain creating some sort of an impact or console of a know someone to give incentives to be part of this cool thing. And to use the use of looking at the Call Miriam for any kind of transactions activities that I think that's the best way to break. The other one who is actually leading the race. So I believe that you don't level. I think we can let you. I love that. I love that so much. Thank you so much for sharing that

you're creating that instant incentives for individuals. Certainly be more first to do. So and so and so meanly with our focus is making it very easy for users to already use the hobbits, but they have businesses that have already processed and operations and place. We won incentified, those to make it worse, the stainable for them. So how you do that is when sensible as this right here, at your incentivizing it with the word, your 10 devising, consumers till it's safe. Purchase certain products that are green for their

household or for businesses certain certain products to use that arm. Energy. Efficient, right. So that's how that's how we're sort of establishing a rewards network around being sustainable for users consumers and also for businesses. Do we really want to help each business in a variety of different Industries on how they found, how they can become more sustainable and help them with their Vision to be warm. So that, I mean, that in the Millennials into becoming more green, you know, to really get that message out there

and and you got a really Market it correctly, right? So we're working with a bunch of different environmentally friendly companies, for instance, just like electricity right now. So we're really working together closely to figure out the solution. I love that. I'm definitely going to be looking at our morgue me that armoire for subpoena. Will the next beautiful, right? So I'm definitely one of the things the blockchain offers is in other account emerging economies around the world and a

lot of times not having a sense of the financial system makes it so that you don't really have a choice. Has been doing a lot of other economies outside of the developed world. They can purchase pay the payments ecosystem and it really it changes their often. So I think that's pretty exciting. Places for those markets, but it's a Gateway into much more financial inclusion, and it's not the right way. I love that. I love that. You're touching it, like, the key areas of where we can happen. So that is definitely a

lot. Of course. He talks about a lot of great a way for us, to incentivize a lot of people, but it's going to take some time before we see a really big impact. Right? One is in sustainability on a larger scale often keep it over to Austin sense to start the conversation. I mean, get the bad rap for it, you know, proof-of-work intensity, but if you look at the economics, the money printing business and banking system of the world is much more efficient than something like the coin is on a verb. I'm in Bitcoin is also the buyer of Last Resort is Marcus Durley. Already know people are finding

Claire, a gas, instead of burnt head using it to the power of mining operations, whether it's Bitcoin or any other crypto your energy that's wasted in grids energy. That's why it's not being used is typically what they claim seeks out cuz you know, that's efficient way to mine. Ice blocks name, all the big mining rsk all the big mining companies around the world in the pools are focused on, you know, any grading sustainable mining practices. I've been involved with some solar mining operations in California in the

past and it is very economically incentivized to move in that direction. So I think you know, the future of Bitcoin mining is renewable. It'll probably be a hundred percent renewable until lock the Never Say Never And tell the world is a hundred percent renewable. In time, creating those incentive structures, as Chantelle mentioned, earlier for the miners, in the mining pools and working with corporations around the world. To find alternate solution. So, one of the things that I was just in Glasgow, what can electricity and Global carbon Parts announced was

that I forgot how many basically I set aside at the sub National level with contracts and agreements for the next decade at least. And I do believe it'll just keep getting renewed to be kind of her lungs of the planet. I'm in. Those are going to be basically a new way to tokenize, all that Landon, and create a new type of standard or credit system that has measurable. And that will never be developed m-theory right that we at least want me to go out for a very long time. I M most of the biodiversity in

the world is in Latin America. So the more we protect those for us no matter what the better as the ones of the planet. So that's One way, it's one creative way that Global carbon Park steam just announced at the UN Summit in Glasgow, or yesterday actually, so I think there's going to be all kinds of innovative systems like that, that are emerging and creating those incentive structures. And like I said before, it's better to buy and carbon credits that are kind of produce from their new, you gotten miserable forests and medical things around the world that can be surveyed 24/7 by

satellite and you can show that it's growing instead of shrinking, right? That's, that's the most important thing. The wetlands are in Port. I think you'll see what land projects that will be becoming more and more thing. Instead of building walls around cities Wetlands protection. He's much better and helps the sequester carbon and also help protect from Hurricane things like that. If the flooding caused flooding in the big problem from these big storms that we're seeing lately for every one degree of Celsius of temperature rise, you know, on the planet Earth, you see about 7% on average

more precipitation in the air, which means they are hurricanes, bigger, storms, bigger droughts on the flip side. Your fires as well. So, you know, they got to do what it wants to do whether we like it or not, but we should be fueling the fire at the very least. We should be doing our part to the minimize our damage which we have in the past hundred years, but now we're starting to return the title little bit. And we have to I think it if we have to reason why the temperature and the floods in the fires are going to get so bad. It's just going to be on the look what happened in Australia,

four years ago, right. Pretty fortunate in in in certain areas do to be able to move around a little more. But yeah, I think definitely coming up with creative systems is the way forward. I definitely agree with you that you heard about from yesterday. But yes, we're going to be happy about that. I know it doesn't think that what you're going to see if you're talkin about like integration of the Bitcoin mined. I agree with Boston and if you look at the date of the date of shows that already 56% of Bitcoin mining is done through renewable energy or quasi, renewable, nuclear

and hydro and you also have other things, right? That is an evolution. You have geothermal energy like in the case of El Salvador now being used mine Bitcoin, all the energy from renewable sources, like solar or when that cannot be there. Now being piped into your point, Ashley becoming this life, third evolution of Bitcoin, which now is the store of value of, right? So people that have energy for players that produce energy and that's not necessarily got stored energy, or sell it and I was stored in B

one. So I think it's enough The asset class. I love that. I love that very much commence on a global energy and how the Bitcoin recently. Pretty much premium from the Bitcoin price from the market trade market Marketplace. What's happening in Bitcoins? In the PC market is actually categories that clean coins and that is fetching a premium for all the time. You're actually focusing into EST and impact in The Big Bang Theory. These are the audience for this Grill comes to that kind of initiative is actually making, you know between the Bitcoin

mining password. Was amazing. Thank you. So, so, so much a little bit more about what you're working on his wealth with Mark. I'll just get back to me on line up on our website at apple.com. Awesome. Awesome. And what about yourself often? Best way for me is Twitter, a t Davis, just shoot me a message. They're happy to connect anybody and talk about, you know, some cool things, the other websites electricity. And of course. Perfect. Is actually just about to have her first. Go ahead and share LinkedIn.

Perfect. Perfect for Instagram for a website, is the same angles 7ct in. Continue the conversation in any of those. First off for share. Perfect. Thank you so much. You guys can connect with me through Instagram or any social media that the right success, but I think all of these social values and really make this conversation super valuable. So I really appreciate that and want to say thank you. Everyone is going into this conversation. I hope this is a blockchain. Make a more sustainable future self.
