16th Jan, 2017

Sustainable Development Goals!

Alas, our technology has marched ahead of our spiritual and social evolution, making us, frankly, a dangerous people.

Steven M. Greer

Inherent Sustainability

One of the core values of Ethereum Classic has always been sustainaility due to several reasons specially as a perpetuation strategy for not only ETC community but the human species itself. We now have new opportunities ahead to broaden ETC presence in the blockchain space by collaborating to include wider measures of value and thus becoming instrumental in achieving the United Nation’s Sustainable Development goals.


World has changed

Recently the COP21 conference raised diplomatic bars and was regarded as a monumental triumph and a victory for the planet.

It sets the stage for progress in ending poverty, strengthening peace and ensuring a life of dignity and opportunity for all.

195 countries are signators of the COP21 conference and they are naturally pushed to deliver sustainable results over the next decades because of their already signed commitment. In other words there’s increased interest and funding available to initiatives able to bring closer to reality the UN target for a more sustainable world at 2030.

Fintech Development Lab

Tomorrow, operating through the UN Innovation Centre, the Blockchain Alliance for Good launches its Fintech development lab to deliver the United Nations Sustainable, Development Goals. In a nutshell, the effort brings social innovation through the power of the blockchain to truly engage and empower communities to achieve structural and sustainable change.

ETC China Support

ETC China is one of the powers behind ETC community and has already signaled its support to the initiative.

Blockchain would have huge impact on civil society in positive ways. United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals is the perfect case how technology can improve human being’s happiness.

The CCEG is a Think Tank focussing on the movement of non-financial and social value. It has also signaled it is supportive of the idea.
