Report: More than 65 Ways Blockchain Technology Can Fix Global Environmental Challenges

San Francisco, United States, 14 September 2018 – A new World Economic Forum report released today at the Global Climate Action Summit in California identifies more than 65 ways blockchain can be applied to the world’s most pressing environmental challenges and calls for new global platforms to incubate ‘responsible blockchain ecosystems’ rather than just individual applications or companies.

Produced in collaboration with PwC, Building Block(chain)s for a Better Planet also identifies eight game-changers where the technology can fundamentally transform the way the world manages its natural resources. These range from decentralising management of natural resources such as energy and water, to creating more transparent supply chains that drive greater sustainability, and providing new mechanisms for raising the trillions of dollars that will be needed to deliver low-carbon and sustainable economic growth.

Blockchain-enabled solutions are currently being explored to improve the sustainability of global supply chains and could help overcome illegal activities by tracking fish from “bait to plate”, or commodities like palm oil, beef, and soy from “farm to fork”. Such transparency is vital in influencing consumer decisions, updating supply chain practices and triggering new governance arrangements. Blockchain-enabled smart contracts could, for instance, be used to underpin innovative tenure arrangements that give specific resource rights to communities or fishers.

According to the report, these and other opportunities have been largely untapped by developers, investors, and governments, and represent an opportunity to unlock and monetise value that is currently embedded in environmental systems.

environmental challenges“Blockchain’s potential to fundamentally redefine how business, government, and society operate has generated considerable hype,” said Sheila Warren, Head of Blockchain and Distribute Ledger Technology at the World Economic Forum’s Centre for the Fourth Industrial Revolution. “Despite this hype, there are many challenges to overcome – it is still a nascent technology undergoing rapid development. Now is the right time for stakeholders to work together to ensure the development of responsible blockchain solutions that are good for people and the planet.”

Celine Herweijer, Partner, PwC UK, added: “It is important for anyone thinking about developing or investing in a blockchain application for the environment to take a step back and ask three essential questions: will blockchain solve the actual problem, can downside risks or unintended consequences be acceptably managed, and has the right ecosystem of stakeholders been built?”

If harnessed in the right way, blockchain has significant potential to enable the transition to cleaner and more resource-preserving decentralised solutions, unlock natural capital and empower communities. This is particularly important for the environment, where the tragedy of the commons and challenges related to non-financial value are prevalent.

“If history has taught us anything, it is that these transformative changes will not happen automatically,” said Dominic Waughray, Head of the World Economic Forum’s Centre for Global Public Goods. “They will require deliberate collaboration between diverse stakeholders ranging from technology industries through to environmental policy-makers, and will need to be underpinned by new platforms that can support these stakeholders to advance not just a technology application, but the systems shift that will enable it to truly take hold.”

Building Block(chain)s for a Better Planet forms part of a series of reports from the Fourth Industrial Revolution for the Earth project, run in association with the World Economic Forum Centre for the Fourth Industrial Revolution.

All the listed sites are licensed and offer provably fair casino games. Crypto and Bitcoin owners like to have a Provably Fair gaming platform. Now they can enjoy their Fair games at licensed operators as well. We aim to list only the Provably Fair casino and Bitcoin betting sites with gaming licenses. 

All the listed Bitcoin Casino and Betting sites are: 

  1. Licensed in Curacao 
  2. Offers Bonuses in BTC 
  3. Has BTC as an account currency 
  4. Offers games from top providers like NetEnt, Evolution, and Ezugi or offers provably fair games
  5. Available to play from all over the World

BitPunterBitpunter.io gives you the best and most secure options to bet and gamble with your beloved Bitcoins. Betting and gambling with Bitcoin gives you great advantages such as anonymity and security. Our aim is to provide the best reviews of Bitcoin Casino and Bitcoin Betting sites and make your gambling experience as smooth as possible. We only list licensed Bitcoin Casino Sites with great bonuses and customer service. You can read our Casino Reviews and check out the games and bonuses they offer.

This way you will be able to have a comprehensive look on the Bitcoin gambling sector and decide where to use your Bitcoins for casino games and sports betting.

Bitpunter does Bitcoin Casino Site ratings according to 4 different criteria:

  1. 🔒  Trust & Fairness: The most important thing about a Bitcoin Casino Site is to know if you can trust the house. The first criteria here is the existence of Provably Fair games where you can be sure about the fairness of the game outcomes. We also rank more classical Bitcoin Casino Sites highly if they offer casino games from trusted providers like NetEnt, Microgaming, Evolution Gaming, and Ezugi. The second criterion about Trust is knowing that you will be able to withdraw your winnings. This is mostly about the casino site’s license as the licensing authorities is supposed to prevent the player funds and make sure they get paid out. We mostly prefer Curacao-based casinos.
  2. 🎰  Odds & Games: When it comes to the availability of a wide range of games, we take into account the Bitcoin Casinos working with top casino game providers. They are able to provide 100s of live and slots games with their deals. If we are ranking a Provably Fair casino site we know that the games are most probably made in-house. We allow those casinos to have simpler designs and still get good ratings. A Provably Fair casino site is respected if they have more than 5 games but there are still very good casinos like Wolf.bet with only 3 games or Primedice with only 1 game of Dice. When it comes to sports betting sites we make sure that they offer decent odds and bet types.
  3. 💰  Bonuses & Promotions: Our criteria are different for classical Bitcoin Casino Sites and Provably Fair Casino Sites. When it comes to classical Bitcoin Casino Sites, we expect them to give away hefty sign-up bonuses even tough it is supposed to be wagered 40 times. 40 times wagering is considered a fair amount of wagering as these sites are casinos not charities. When it comes to Provably Fair Casino Sites we do not expect them to give away juicy bonuses as they work on very low house margins like 1%. We focus on promotions, hourly-daily-weekly-monthly tournaments and give aways. Loyalty bonuses and cashback offers become more important at Provably Fair casinos.
  4.   Customer Support: Offering customer support was almost unthinkable when the first Bitcoin Dice and Bitcoin Casino sites started. They usually came with on-site chat sections where users had to communicate with each other and hope for solutions. Thanks to the increasing demands of crypto gamblers and higher competition in the market, we are now able to get proper Customer Support with proper tools like Live Chat and Email. We take getting good customer support and showing respect to the users very seriously. We also take a look at the BitcoinTalk forum where we check how the operators respond to fellow gamblers and how likely they are to solve their problems.

Mission of Bitpunter.io

Our aim is to provide up-to-date information on all licensed Bitcoin Betting and Bitcoin Casino sites. I know that those Bitcoins are very valuable for every HODLer and we want to be sure about the safety of our funds when we bet or gamble with them. That is why I have gathered all the licensed Bitcoin Gambling sites and reviewed them for you. You can find both the Pros and Cons of every reviewed site and make your own calculated decisions. You can contact us through our website Bitpunter.io if you have any questions:
