Webex Information for Preproposal Conference - IPB 20-0801: Exploring Blockchain for Traceability of WB Loan Disbursements.

Brian Behlendorf <bbehlendorf@...>
 

Hi all,

I realize this is last minute, but I received word that the World Bank is issuing a tender (see attached) for "Exploring Blockchain for Traceability of WB Loan Disbursements", and is hosting a call tomorrow to answer questions. I figure this may be of interests to members of you three SIGs to consider applying for. Good luck if you choose to pursue it!

Frontiers in Blockchain: Blockchain Uses for Social and Economic Equity in Agriculture and Food Production

Alicia Noel
 

Hi everyone,

As I mentioned on the call today, Frontiers in Blockchain is inviting submissions for a research collection on Blockchain Uses for Social and Economic Equity in Agriculture and Food Production (https://www.frontiersin.org/research-topics/12379/blockchain-uses-for-social-and-economic-equity-in-agriculture-and-food-production), at Swiss academic journal Frontiers in Blockchain.  This collection will be part of the Blockchain for Good section of the journal (https://www.frontiersin.org/journals/blockchain/sections/blockchain-for-good#).

I am an editor for the collection. We want it to showcase a wide range of examples of how blockchain technology is being leveraged to benefit farmers and others involved in food production. It would be great to include projects from the Hyperledger community. Please let me know if you or anyone you know would be interested in participating and I can add you into the Frontiers system as contributors.

Frontiers is a leading Gold Open Access publisher based in Switzerland, and Frontiers in Blockchain was launched in August 2018, with the aim to provide a trusted source of high-quality, peer-reviewed research articles which are free to access online. An Article Processing Charge (https://www.frontiersin.org/about/publishing-fees) applies for papers that are accepted for publication. If you know of a potential contributor whose employer/institution/funding body is not able to provide sufficient funding for publication, the processing charge should not be a barrier for submission - please have them contact Ursula Rabar (mailto: blockchain@...) to discuss an appropriate solution to ensure that they are able to contribute regardless of their funding situation.  

Best wishes,
Alicia

Dear SI-SIG Community,

2/4 Meeting Recap

You can find the meeting notes for our last meeting: https://wiki.hyperledger.org/display/SISIG/2020-02-04+Meeting+Agenda

2/18 Meeting Agenda

This week's meeting agenda is available here: https://wiki.hyperledger.org/display/SISIG/2020-02-18+Meeting+Agenda

We will be discussing the Hyperledger Global Forum SIG activities. If there is a meeting topic you would like to discuss, feel free to include in our meeting agenda. 

Talk soon,

Nancy Min


Have you registered for Hyperledger Global Forum, March 3-6?

Brian Behlendorf <bbehlendorf@...>
 

Hello Hyperledger Community,


Less than four weeks to go until Hyperledger Global Forum 2020! I am so excited to see not only long time friends but all the new people, projects, deployments, and energy in our community. We've grown so much even just since the last Forum in Basel just over a year ago. This time no one needs to bundle up in scarves and mittens, as Arizona in springtime is gorgeous.


As digitally connected as our community is, in-person meetings like this are essential to developing a healthy Open Source software community. Community itself is an inherent part of blockchain technology - our ledger platforms are operating systems for cooperative networks. Whether you're a developer or product manager or business-level decision-maker, if you want to better understand the full scope of what everyone in the Hyperledger Greenhouse are building and deploying, and where the enterprise blockchain movement is going, you want to be here!


I wanted to make sure that you do not miss out on standard pricing, which ends on February 18. Save up to $400 if you register by the deadline. Hotel rooms will most likely sell out in advance - I encourage you to book ASAP to secure a room at the conference rate, which was just extended through Friday, Feb 14.


At Global Forum, you will have the chance to talk directly with Hyperledger project maintainers and the Technical Steering Committee, collaborate with other developers and executives on ideas that will directly impact the future of Hyperledger. Plus you get to promote your work among the enterprise blockchain community.


This year’s agenda will feature more than 80 sessions, including dozens of breakout sessions plus panels, workshops and a Demo Theater. You can search the agenda and also browse by filter type including industry, project focus. There’s some really great technical sessions/workshops lined up that I would like to highlight:



Going into Production! Performance Best Practices in Hyperledger Fabric - Alfonso De la Rocha Gómez-Arevalillo, Telefónica

Hyperledger Fabric is getting traction in the corporate world, with more and more companies deploying Fabric-based projects and PoCs. One of the main limitations Telefonica’s found is getting a PoC into production because of a lack of performance best practices. In this talk Alfonso will answer common performance questions such as: What configurations should I fine-tune to get the most out of my infrastructure? And How many peers, endorsers and ordering nodes do I need?


Governing DLT Networks - David Treat, Accenture & Rob Palatnick, DTCC

Accenture and DTCC have co-authored a paper, Governing DLT Networks, and will present their work with David Treat, MD, Global Blockchain Lead at Accenture and member of the Hyperledger Board and Rob Palatnick, CTO of DTCC and Chair of the Hyperledger Board. Proposing a governance operating model to address approaches to managing the activity, connectivity, software changes, contractual agreements and transaction finality for every participant across the network.


Blockchain Platform For A Billion Customers: A Telecom (Digital Marketing) Case Study - Babu Jayaraj, Reliance Jio Infocom Ltd.

India with 1.2+ Billion registered mobile subscribers have been plagued with unsolicited communications from the unregistered telemarketers. A consortium of telecom operators under the TRAI's guidance have built a Blockchain based platform to regulate marketing communications. This talk is about learnings/experiences in designing and building the Hyperledger Fabric based platform by consortium of telecom operators including choosing right technologies, overcoming platform stability issues, scaling performance and building business practices/process around the new platform.


Building Secure Protocols Using Ursa- Mike Lodder, Sovrin Foundation & Brent Zundel, Evernym

It's notoriously difficult to properly implement blockchain protocols that use cryptographic algorithms.In this talk, Mike and Brent will explain some of the features in Hyperledger Ursa and how to use them to solve some of the most common problems faced by people looking to build private and secure protocols on blockchains.


A Standardized Approach to Creating Digital Tokens - Paul DiMarzio, Enterprise Ethereum Alliance; Marley Gray, Microsoft & Jonathan Levi, HACERA

In this session, the speakers will lay out the value of digital tokens and dive into a few examples of how the Token Taxonomy Framework (TTF) can be used to simplify the design and implementation of new token classes.

DIDs without blockchains - Daniel Hardman, Evernym,

Decentralized Identifiers (DIDs) are like DNS without any registrars. They're a foundation of decentralized identity, and are relevant to most Hyperledger projects. In this session, Daniel will explain how peer DIDs work, and show developers how they can get support for them in an hour or a day (depending on their circumstances).


Panel: Business Interoperability – The Key to Supply Chain Traceability - Rich Meszaros & Sarah Banks, Accenture; Melanie Nuce, GS1 US; David Cecchi, Cargill

Technology such as blockchain has the power to solve complex challenges and achieve improved supply chain traceability. In order to tap into this powerful technology, interoperability, enabled by robust data and transaction standards, are a must! Segments of the supply chain, such as the food industry, have made significant progress leveraging data standards to support food safety and product transparency use cases.

Workshop: Intro to Hyperledger Besu - Danno Ferrin, ConsenSys

There is no better way to learn about Hyperledger Besu than by doing.In this session attendees will set up and run Hyperledger Besu nodes that connect to public networks as well as start their own permissioned network between the other attendees in the session.


Workshop: Hyperledger Fabric 101 - Swetha Repakula & Morgan Bauer, IBM

The workshop will involve participants standing up their own Hyperledger Fabric network, deploying smart contracts, and interacting with their contracts using decentralized applications. Attendees will leave the tutorial with a better understanding of the properties of permissioned blockchains, and decentralized application development. Recently announced Hyperledger Fabric 2.0 features and updates will also be explored.


Workshop: Hands-on Experience with Avalon on How to Bridge On-chain and Off-chain Worlds - Yevgeniy Yarmosh & Dan Anderson, Intel

Avalon addresses blockchain scalability and privacy challenges by moving compute intensive and private data processing off-chain. Other similar approaches typically trade resilience and integrity for scalability and privacy. During this workshop, you will understand Avalon architecture and how it extends a notion of computational trust.


Workshop: Getting Started with Indy and Aries: Beginner and Advanced Scenarios - Stephen Curran, Cloud Compass Computing, Inc. & John Jordan, Government of British Columbia (Canada),

This full day technical workshop will cover beginner and advanced sessions on getting started with Hyperledger Indy and Hyperledger Aries.

Keynote speakers confirmed so far:

Keynote: Don Tapscott: The Blockchain Revolution -State of the Union, Co-author, Blockchain Revolution: How the Technology Behind Bitcoin and Other Cryptocurrencies is Changing the World, and Co-founder, Blockchain Research Institute

Keynote: Sheila Warren: Blockchain Matters: How it’s Already Changing the World, Head of Blockchain and Distributed Ledger Technology, World Economic Forum

Hi Tafadzwa,

Our team is developing a blockchain application for hemp seeds that will consolidate information from the hemp seed grower, as well as the certifying agency.

I am very curious as to the similarities and differences for this work in our country and yours. Your interest in facilitating growing hemp to help farmers and the environment is admirable. Thank you for your work.

Would you be available for a videochat on Wednesday at 4pm GMT (8am PST where I am, and I believe 6pm CAT, where you are)?

I will be on tomorrow morning's call, and hope that you can make it.

Looking forward to hearing back, and thanks!

Best,

Jim

Hello good people. My name is Tafadzwa Dutoit Nyamande and I am the Head of Industrial Hemp Business Development for Zimbabwe Industrial Hemp Trust(ZIHT). ZIHT is the leading organisation steering the development of the hemp industry in Zimbabwe. From 2 years ago we were involved in the lobbying with the government for the recognition/legalisation of hemp agriculture. In August this year, the government released the statutory instrument recognising hemp as agricultural commodity. ZIHT hold holds the first cannabis research licence and in October we planted the first hemp pilot project in Zimbabwe.

Early this year I enrolled for an MOOC hosted by The World Bank Open Learning Campus, Unlocking Investment and Finance in Emerging Markets and Developing Economies. Despite my finance background, this course introduced me to social impact principles and paved a path for me to enroll in the Blockchain for Business Professional Certificate that ultimately landed me here.

I believe hemp carries profound social impact opportunities for Zimbabwe as a poor country in dire need for economic and social development. I seek an opportunity to engage with the Hyperledger community to develop solutions in the following areas:
1. Setting up a diaspora equity investment fund to get Zimbabweans in the diaspora community to be directly and actively involved as part of a blended finance strategy. The diaspora constitutes the largest source of foreign currency contributions to the economy yet has limited opportunities/trust to invest in developing the country. 
2. Bringing together a consortium of global companies in the hemp industry that will benefit in the downstream and upstream opportunities from 'seed-to-sale'. Involvement will include, particularly but not limited to, players in hemp bioplastics, hemp biodiesel/renewable energy, hemp for paper industries, building with hemp/lime mixture aka hempcrete as well as hemp fiber for textiles. We will consider PPP arrangements as well as other innovative solutions. 
3. The involvement of small holder farmers in hemp farming, SMEs in supply chain, provenance tracking and identity management. 
4. Using DLTs and perhaps cryptocurrencies combined with available tools from World Bank and other development finance institutions to hedge against political and currency risk. 
5. The development of rural communities and rural growth point into satellite economic hubs perhaps leading into the formation of a smart city/economic zone on the backdrop of a hemp circular economy. 

Zimbabwe has significant low production cost and climate advantages to allow 3 or 4 harvests a year. I envision impact in millions of people's lives and a true revival of a trouble yet naturally well resourced economy. Hemp is a fast growing  plant with can grow in many regions of the country way more sustainably than, cotton, tobacco or even trees. Most Zimbabweans own productive land owing to the infamous land resettlement program as well as traditional farmlands. 

I look forward to engaging with the Hyperledger social impact SIG. I have made this my life task and I am prepared to be on the ground working with experts in their different fields in perhaps the most ambitious project of our generation, developing new industries from scratch as well as reviving old one but in a sustainable direction. 

One love and kind regards

Tafadzwa Dutoit Nyamande.

5. The development of rural communities and rural growth point into satellite economic hubs perhaps leading into the formation of a smart city/economic zone on the backdrop of a hemp circular economy. 

 

Zimbabwe has significant low production cost and climate advantages to allow 3 or 4 harvests a year. I envision impact in millions of people's lives and a true revival of a trouble yet naturally well resourced economy. Hemp is a fast growing  plant with can grow in many regions of the country way more sustainably than, cotton, tobacco or even trees. Most Zimbabweans own productive land owing to the infamous land resettlement program as well as traditional farmlands. 

 

I look forward to engaging with the Hyperledger social impact SIG. I have made this my life task and I am prepared to be on the ground working with experts in their different fields in perhaps the most ambitious project of our generation, developing new industries from scratch as well as reviving old one but in a sustainable direction. 

 

One love and kind regards

 

Tafadzwa Dutoit Nyamande.

Tafadzwa DuToit Nyamande
 



Hello good people. My name is Tafadzwa Dutoit Nyamande and I am the Head of Industrial Hemp Business Development for Zimbabwe Industrial Hemp Trust(ZIHT). ZIHT is the leading organisation steering the development of the hemp industry in Zimbabwe. From 2 years ago we were involved in the lobbying with the government for the recognition/legalisation of hemp agriculture. In August this year, the government released the statutory instrument recognising hemp as agricultural commodity. ZIHT hold holds the first cannabis research licence and in October we planted the first hemp pilot project in Zimbabwe.

Early this year I enrolled for an MOOC hosted by The World Bank Open Learning Campus, Unlocking Investment and Finance in Emerging Markets and Developing Economies. Despite my finance background, this course introduced me to social impact principles and paved a path for me to enroll in the Blockchain for Business Professional Certificate that ultimately landed me here.

I believe hemp carries profound social impact opportunities for Zimbabwe as a poor country in dire need for economic and social development. I seek an opportunity to engage with the Hyperledger community to develop solutions in the following areas:
1. Setting up a diaspora equity investment fund to get Zimbabweans in the diaspora community to be directly and actively involved as part of a blended finance strategy. The diaspora constitutes the largest source of foreign currency contributions to the economy yet has limited opportunities/trust to invest in developing the country. 
2. Bringing together a consortium of global companies in the hemp industry that will benefit in the downstream and upstream opportunities from 'seed-to-sale'. Involvement will include, particularly but not limited to, players in hemp bioplastics, hemp biodiesel/renewable energy, hemp for paper industries, building with hemp/lime mixture aka hempcrete as well as hemp fiber for textiles. We will consider PPP arrangements as well as other innovative solutions. 
3. The involvement of small holder farmers in hemp farming, SMEs in supply chain, provenance tracking and identity management. 
4. Using DLTs and perhaps cryptocurrencies combined with available tools from World Bank and other development finance institutions to hedge against political and currency risk.
