Circular exchange of
tokenized assets

BUIDL a community system fed by material and social assets (such as mobility, data, energy) to create a richer and more inclusive community (founded on community-based business models). In this new hybrid payment system people can manage and exchange assets other than money, do it peer-to-peer and against the right exchange rates.

THE CHALLENGE

If we want to incentivise a local, inclusive and circular economy, we need to be able to label assets as to provenance: this energy is green, solar panel induced and local. How can we manage and exchange these assets, peer-to-peer, at the right exchange rate and within a circular economy?

For the last four years, research facilitated by Our Common Future 2.0 Foundation (https://www.newbusinessmodels.info/) has explored how such a community system could take shape. This has resulted in a White Paper on system requirements and an inventory of possible means, resulting in a typology based on different types and value categories, with nearly a hundred possibilities. Now is the time to move from research and knowledge to the building of prototypes.

The ambition of this track is a contribution to a broader societal transition towards sustainability, the circular economy, and people’s participation (inclusivity). We think that changing the ways we shape everyday transactions impacts the social and ecological sustainability of the economy.

DOMAIN EXPERTS PRESENT AT THE HACKATHON

Business Models – Radboud University, TNO, Hanze UAS;

Transaction-systems – Innopay, Betaalvereniging;

Commodities

TOOLBOX

Any platform that offers the possibility to deal with multiple values/currencies simultaneously and the ability to create smart contracts between transaction partners.

ELIGIBLE TEAMS

Startup: depending on the stage of development; only if they already have an established organisation, with a portfolio of challenge-related solutions up and running.
Mature SME: preferred, with the ability to understand the problem and a hands-on approach to creating applications.

PROTOCOL OR
APPLICATION SOLUTION?

Application solution
Suggested protocols are: (1) Ripple Consensus Network (multiple currencies), (2) Ethereum (smart contracting), and possibly (3) OpenChain (partitioned consensus if required by the solution).

OPEN SOURCE OR PROPRIETARY

Open source, so results can be shared.
Motivation

Acceleration of social and material sustainability for all kinds of people in their everyday lives NOW!

Ambition and goals

Goal is to walk out of the Hackathon with five prototypes of Apps that truly allow Inclusive Banking

Track record in innovation and acceleration with teams/companies

Since 2010 we have worked with both smaller and larger groups (up to 450 people) on co-creating knowledge and solutions. This is probably our fifteenth project over the years and our first ‘digital’ one.

CONSORTIUM

Current consortium. The ‘Inclusive Banking’ Challenge has a consortium made up of payment organisations (such as Innopay and the Dutch Association of Banks), research institutes providing knowledge about business models and hybrid transactions (Radboud University and TNO) and businesses, as we’d like to work with their commodities (Remondis, Engie, DLL etc.). We also have the support of various pension funds, as they have already acquired experience in recent years with the idea of turning commodities into transactional value (APG, PGGM).

 

Welcoming: We would love to have representatives for cities (London, Copenhagen, Maribor, Antwerp, Milan, etc.) join our consortium.
