Exploring the Blockchain Charity Sector and Charity Projects

Written By Ivan on Tech

Dec 27, 2020

Anyone who has ever heard about the concept “Industry 4.0” will likely know that blockchain technology is revolutionizing sectors left and right. With that said, however, blockchain in the charity sector is still a relatively new concept. Nevertheless, blockchain charity projects can transform traditional nonprofit accountability and transparency. Accountability in nonprofit organizations is paramount to a charity’s success. Without trust, a charity cannot expect to have donors.

Clearly, transparency in nonprofits and charitable causes needs to increase for trust to be restored. Several reports of misappropriated donations and funds have marred the charity sector. People are now often less-inclined to donate to charities since they have to trust humans to ensure that donations reach their intended destination, without any funny business along the way. 

Thankfully we now have blockchain technology. We no longer need to trust humans. Instead, we can trust maths...

Blockchain in The Energy Sector - Use Cases

Written By Ivan on Tech

Nov 13, 2020

As the conversation about clean and sustainable energy becomes ever more present, the use cases for blockchain in the energy sector are becoming more compelling than ever.

Exploring Blockchain Scaling Solutions in 2020

Written By Ivan on Tech

Sep 27, 2020

The growth of Ethereum over recent years has propelled blockchain technology beyond what many thought was possible. As the crypto community eagerly awaits the seemingly ever-delayed Ethereum 2.0 upgrade, many are wondering, could Layer-2 solutions provide the sustainable growth and scaling of the network that is needed?

Successful implementation of Ethereum’s Layer-2 solutions can be said to be important  both for the security and overall success of the network, but also the mass adoption of cryptocurrency and blockchain technology. Specifically, scaling solutions are imperative for increased network activity. 

Proponents of Ethereum would say that Ethereum is at the forefront of various fields such as payments technology, financial infrastructure, and global enterprise, but with network congestion and gas fees at all-time highs, scaling solutions are highly sought after, as the demand for Ethereum usage far exceeds the capacity of the network.
