September sees the launch of the Blockchain Alliance for Good (Bisgit.IoV) – a free membership organisation aimed at boosting the usage of Blockchain technology to generate good social and environmental solutions. The Alliance unites Blockchain enthusiasts from around the world and provides them with a springboard for “good” innovations.  

Led by Barbara Mellish, a former senior banker, “Blockchain Alliance for Good will promote Total Value exchange which will revolutionise the adoption of Blockchain and Cryptocurrencies”. Based in the UK but operating internationally, Bisgit.IoV comes out of the not-for-profit Centre for Citizenship, Enterprise and Governance – the world’s leading Think Thank in the Movement of Value.

Over the next 3 months, plans include its own Hackathon (October), University of Cambridge conference (11th November), a free quarterly online specialist magazine (December 2016), and the appointment of the Blockchain Alliance for Good Advisory Board. In 2017, Bisgit has been commissioned to author a book from a leading academic publisher, launch of university accredited online courses, and a peer-reviewed academic journal in 2018. The Alliance is now actively seeking nominations and contributions.

Furthermore, every quarterly edition of Social Value and Intangibles Review (SVIR) will have a supplement on Blockchain for Good. Future editions will feature articles on applications in retail, customer loyalty cards, social media, micro payments, money laundering, supply chain transparency, NGO and charity markets. The Blockchain Alliance for Good is also keen to develop imagineering around what the 2020’s  Blockchain world will look like, including AI, bots and mobile apps.

Internet-of-Value Blockchain Initiative for Socially Good Integrated Transactions (Bisgit.Iov) can be found at www.bisgit.org. Official hashtag of the Alliance is #goodistrending.

The Centre for Citizenship, Enterprise and Governance (CCEG), is the leading open source international Think Tank on the Movement of Value. With over 50,000 members, including 6000 of the largest companies in the world and 2000 politicians, CCEG has over 100 commissions at socialearningsratio.com   and over 10 SaaS platforms at Seratio.
