In researching today I found this information on the plans for Dubai to closely integrate blockchain into their ongoing operations.

Another notable item on blockchain used in healthcare at the US state level..."With the aim to test how blockchain can improve medical processes, both Delaware and Illinois announced proof-of-concept blockchain pilots this August."

Mike,

I'll have a look at those two blockchain examples.

I'm also going to invite a couple other blockchain experts to join this project as well.

Brad, one item which is occuring in Europe is called GDPR, this is of particular importance to Blockchain usage because any company either based in Europe or holding data an EU citizens must comply with GDPR rules.  As one of the key operability characteristics of Blockchain is that data cannot be deleted the choice of any Blockchain should include the ability of EU users to remove their data or more overall have control of their personal information.  This is called "Self-Sovereign-Identity" and Hyperledger has a module called Indy within it with those capabilities.

More information on GDPR can be found here.

It is exactly these sorts if things which need to be owned by EU citizens themselves and not some sort of data agregator such as Facebook etc.  So Self Sovereign Identity will definitely be a key issue "All ZWBC participants assign values to their resources and attributes. Some values are positive: house, real estate, automobile, working capital, degrees earned, knowledge, etc. Some resources and attributes are negative: waste streams, financial debt, illness, addiction, utility bill, etc."

I realize I am posting a lot here but these items are important.  David Fleming created a seminal book "Lean Logic - A Dictionary for the Future and How to Survive It. He created a scheme which the UK government reviewed called TEQ's (Tradable Energy Quota's) which map out a way to reduce fossil fuel use without immediately destroying an economy.  More details can be found here.  This speaks to transitions which you detailed so "In this embodiment, we have weaned ourselves from carbon-based fossil fuel in  favor of  a renewable energy economy where existing biocarbon that is susceptible to forest fire, resulting waste from construction or demolition is used as a fuel supply. We have also implemented a carbon-negative "organic carbon engine" that uses sunlight to make oxygen through photosynthesis while simultaneously sequestering carbon as biochar."

Most information is currently off Blockchains, for instance "Information of course already has a price. For example, someone purchases a copy of the New York Times to gain access to information, or subscribes to Bloomberg for financial information." To gain access to such things into a Blockchain an entity called an "Oracle" is used.

One more important point, this organization based in India just joined the Hyperledger consortium and this is quite pertinent to this proposal as it addresses GHG reduction...

Mike, Thank you so much for your insightful comments. I think if the ZWBC proposal is to have a shot at being selected, it will need to be less theoretical and provide a specific project for a specific community. I have another business plan competition that is due April 30, so I'm considering "forking" the ZWBC into a second project that dovetails with GHG management and air quality management in Missoula, Montana. Are you interested in this as well? Sorry to have missed your call last night. Perhaps we could talk by phone this evening. -Brad
