From challenges to solutions

The Challenges at the Future of Trust Summit 2018 are as follows:



Challenge: Enexis Netbeheer

Build the unimaginable but buildable

The 8.7 million animal species have working ecosystems to fulfil their basic needs like housing, eating, transportation,  and energy. None of these ecosystems are based on ownership, money and identity like we know and use it. And if you look carefully, you’ll discover that some of these ecosystems are not even based on scarcity (like we need it for our business models) but on commons and abundance.

In the Nature 2.0 track, inspiring unimaginable non-human narratives will be combined with an exploration of those new and buildable digital entities  that appear when we use the possibilities of blockchain, artificial intelligence and autonomous assets to create open source ecosystems. Think  about  DAOs (distributed autonomous organization), AI-DAOs, digital twins, autonomous assets (like self-driving cars), user-curated lists  and distributed market places for sensor & AI data and AI algorithms.

As one of the enablers of the basic need of energy, the Dutch grid company Enexis Netbeheer wants to explore with you what the disruptions of tomorrow could be that we cannot imagine today. What can we learn about the future? How can we use these insights beneficially for society?




Challenge: Loyens & Loeff

How to get to the ultimate ICO procedure in the Netherlands? What is there to learn from other countries and how to effectively move forward?

One of the areas of most concern to ICO investors and entrepreneurs is the current regulatory and legal environment. To fund innovative ideas of start-ups, scale-ups, and vested parties, the market would benefit from a standardized procedure to set-up quality ICOs, which are transparent, trusted and have KYC and anti-money laundering procedures in place. At the same time, entrepreneurs, investors and regulators will have clarity and the certainty of proper and at the same time swift proceedings. How can we get to an ultimate ICO procedure? Who do we need in terms of expertise, safeguards and documentation to take the next step?

As a leading international law firm, with offices in the Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg and Switzerland and other key financial centres around the world, Loyens & Loeff has in and after the Blockchaingers Hackathon helped many start-ups, scale-ups and incumbents. They want to enable companies to get to the funding they need. Based on the experience of Loyens & Loeff and as a Legal Partner of Blockchaingers, developing an ICO market guide could be one of the roads for the European ecosystem.




Challenge: Radboud University/Stichting OCF 2.0

Creating a democratic Hybrid Banking System, where people (or organisations) can engage in transactions in which they use multiple values such as mobility, time, energy or waste simultaneously as a means of payment.

The aim of this track is to create a peer-to-peer system that enables transactions on the basis of hybrid mixture of means. Could a transaction system be built, through which everyone can manage a specific set of their assets (time, mobility, waste etc.)? One that is not exclusively based on money. How to let anyone with an Internet connection participate in a (local) hybrid transaction system?

For the last four years, research facilitated by Stichting Our Common Future 2.0 has explored how such a 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. This has resulted in an overview of nearly 100 possibilities. Now is the time to move from research and knowledge to building prototypes.

The ambition of this track is to contribute to a broader societal transition towards sustainability, the circular economy, and the participation of people (inclusivity). We think that changing our way of shaping everyday transactions has impact on the social and ecological sustainification of the economy. We like to come to peer-to-peer exchanges with available means at hand.




Challenge: Dutch Ministry of the Interior and Kingdom Relations

How to trust each other in a digital world, using a new (digital) identity?

What is your identity? It’s a hard question for all of us, but we all know new technologies will impact our identity on a large scale.

There are numerous things that can determine your identity, from your passport and bank card to your Facebook account or sports club membership. Right now, people have (very) limited real control or sovereignty over their identity, with hundreds of organizations having pieces of personal data.

Public and private organizations are experiencing a larger demand for control over personal data from data subjects. Many values in society can be served by giving citizens and companies more control over the personal data that constructs their identity. It can offer, for example, a higher level of freedom, self-determination, equal opportunities, privacy, security, efficient services and less bureaucracy. The need to have control over your personal data is growing. What are the opportunities in this field and how can we tackle the problems involved?

Besides the aspect of control, there is also the question of authentication and identification. How can new technologies improve trust in the way we identify entities? What if there was a self-sovereign identity, which was yours and only yours? Not issued and controlled by the government and where only you have a say in where and when you want to use it? It’s time to discuss the future of how we get to trust each other in the digital world.

The Dutch Ministry of the Interior and Kingdom Relations asks for your advice. What do you think should be our approach to move forward on co-create a new global Digital Identity?

The Dutch government is stepping up the effort in research and R&D, and this challenge is one of the main policy goals in the governmental strategy for digital government. Take a look a the e-government strategy launched in May 2018 (in Dutch):




Challenge: Dutch Ministry of the Interior and Kingdom Relations.

How to become a fully open government?

We would like our government open: information, algorithms and software owned and used by the government should be available and accessible to everyone.

Openness and transparency will have an impact. Economical impact through companies creating innovative applications with open data, democratic impact by giving access to parliamentary and administrative open data and societal impact by giving access to financial and other administrative data.

How can we develop and participate in initiatives to increase this impact? What are the opportunities and challenges for a truly open and trustworthy government? How do we move forward from policy towards implementing an open mindset throughout the government?

The Dutch government is stepping up the effort in research and R&D, and this challenge is one of the main policy goals in the governmental strategy on digital government. Take a look at the e-government strategy launched in May 2018:




Challenge: Dutch Ministry of the Interior and Kingdom Relations

How can our government become a platform acting as a skilful intermediary organizing collaboration?

One of the largest challenges of our society is to have a government that uses the opportunities that new technologies offer us. Within the services our government offers, it appears to be hard to simplify the services to the level society is expecting. Several private platforms have clearly shown how the power and knowledge of all of its users can add value to its existence.

One of the opportunities for a new way of filling in the role of our government is to see our government more as a platform. A platform that acts as an intermediary between several parties in society guided by certain public values.  Can we imagine a government acting as a skilful intermediary that organizes collaboration, connects people and providers and organizes high level digital services on stable foundation of standards and values?

How can we organize our government in a way that serves our society? Are the rules and options of our government changing fundamentally? Will a government as a platform approach, in which the public sector collaborates with private sector partners, citizens and perhaps even robots, create a better outcome for all?

The Dutch government is stepping up the effort in research and R&D, and this challenge is one of the main policy goals in the governmental strategy on digital government. Take a look a the e-government strategy launched in May 2018 (Dutch). ( ).




Challenge: APG 

How do you want to manage our own pension?

APG, the biggest pension service provider of Europe, has a 100-year track record of managing pensions. APG is working together with startups, building the new pension infrastructure of the 21st century, more transparent, efficient and personal.

Continuing its efforts in the Blockchaingers program, APG this season is out to explore people’s drivers and interests in managing their own pension? How involved do you as a client want to be and how to facilitate your involvement?




Challenge: APG 

How to grow trust of people in their pension?

APG, the biggest pension service provider of Europe, has a 100-year track record of managing pensions. APG is working together with startups, building the new pension infrastructure of the 21st century, more transparent, efficient and personal.

Trust is key in everything personal and financial, but especially when it comes to your retirement, as you want to be sure that your 30 or more year pension-investment pays out when you need it.  APG wants their customers to have peace of mind on their pensions. How to achieve this goal?




Challenge: Kadaster

Make all information on real objects readily available for authorized persons and machines in a distributed data ecosystem, to facilitate a circular economy.

Our generation faces enormous challenges which will have an effect on our physical environment. We have to make the transition to an energy neutral and circular economy. We have to deal with evolving demands for housing, caused by ongoing urbanisation and an ageing and diversifying population. The necessary adaptations in the built environment require huge investments which will only lead to returns in the long run.

These developments require adequate information about buildings, and real objects in general, to be available for a wide range of functions, such as planning, financing, construction, buying and selling and management. This calls for an integrated approach to information provision regarding real objects.


Kadaster envisions a future where trustworthy information on real objects is readily available for authorized persons and machines in a distributed data ecosystem. Both public and private data can be tied unequivocally to a unique object identity. A distributed ledger will function as the trusted backbone for all kind of public and private services. Considering the private nature and/or commercial confidentiality of at least some of the data, special attention must be given to ownership and access regime to the data.

We are convinced that we can only take this concept further in good cooperation with an ecosystem of public and private partners, including municipalities, construction companies, energy providers and public agencies, and software and service developers.

Work already done

Kadaster has produced the first proof of concept for a Digital Building Dossier in early 2018. This was our starting point for the previous edition of the Blockchaingers Hackathon in April 2018. This concept features the creation of unique building IDs, enabling public and private parties to add required data, and rule based access to these data. We saw some really good applications of this concept as a result of the hackathon in April 2018. We intend to develop this concept further, in cooperation with partners in the public and private sector. This is one of the initiatives mentioned in the Netherlands’ Agenda Digital Government (June 2018).

Our goal

The integration of the BIM-model, a standard in the building industry and the way of collecting data about building at the source, is a critical success factor for this concept. This Blockchaingers season we want to find out how to

– how to include existing standards, e.g. BIM

– how to tie existing solutions into the ecosystem;

– how to manage access to (private) data in this distributed environment;




Challenge: Dutch Chamber of Commerce

 The Chamber of Commerce becoming an oracle in the Digital Infrastructure of a Nation.

The Dutch Chamber of Commerce mission is to help entrepreneurs do business as efficiently as possible, thereby adding value to a nation’s digital infrastructure.

Implementation of a pilot aiming at this goal of becoming an oracle is the first step, which the Chamber of Commerce will take this fall. Building on top of this first step and experience this season can potentially be a groundbreaking paradigm shift for the Dutch entrepreneurial landscape, to create new and better products and services for companies.

How can the Chamber of Commerce reach its goals? Which (inter)national organizations and people should be on board in this mission?




Challenge: Dutch Ministry of Justice and Security & Dutch Ministry of Finance

Increasing the trust in approval management
Giving approval is a frequent and important activity for everybody both offline and online, in both daily and working life, in civilian, governmental and business domains. Examples are abundant and include approving a purchase contract, agreeing with a financial budget, giving consent for using personal data, confirming your filled-in tax income form, accepting cookie requests on your computer, accepting terms & conditions for a specific app in the app store, accepting terms of employment, etc.

The way approval requests are currently presented ironically gives limited real insight into the terms, conditions and consequences for which approval is required in the first place. What makes it even more confusing is that the format of this information and the location where approval should be given differs every time depending on the platform, service and entity to be approved. Once you have decided to accept or decline an approval request there is often no clear overview of your given responses and therefore there is no simple way to revise previous decisions. In addition, the growing threat of identity theft and fraud demands a safe haven for giving approval, providing the highest compliance to privacy and security laws. In short, the world needs a user-friendly, simple but informative approval infrastructure for all approvals of all types and forms across the globe, that gives great real insight into all the previously given approvals, offers the possibility of changing a specific reply (where applicable) and protects users from malice.

Right now people have (very) limited real control over their given approvals. The Dutch government wants to explore how people can regain control over their approval management. Blockchain technology and new cryptographic possibilities could perhaps provide the opportunity to make this happen. With what solutions can you come up using all your creative powers, skills and knowledge of the latest technologies and trends?




Challenge: Dutch Public Safety Alliance.

Fully informed rescuers on the scene

How to get validated, secure and relevant information on the spot to emergency services and all different involved organizations at (any) incident the Fire department responses to?

Currently, there could be over 10 organizations holding information which is possibly relevant for those tackling the incident. This information is mostly centralised within these organizations. Data regarding the dangerous goods stored in the involved building or transported by the truck involved in a major traffic incident. Data about the presence of people in the building or the use of the material. This leads to delay, lack of clarity and sometimes to a lack of crucial information for rescuers on the scene.

Is there a way of distributing relevant information (about buildings, vehicles, etc.) in a horizontal, decentralized form? Could valuable information coming from non-validated sources (civilians, companies) be exchanged during times of fire, accidents or other incidents? Could the report of a crime or dangerous situation by privately owned sensors be anonymous and still trusted? Dutch public safety organizations are forming an alliance to experiment and launch new ways of tackling complex problems, new ways of collaborating and new technology. The Instituut Fysieke Veiligheid (IFV), Ministry of Justice & Safety, Safety Region Noord-Nederland and Safety Region Rotterdam are welcoming ideas and ideations to create two hackathon challenges.




Challenge: Dutch Public Safety Alliance. 

Decentralized information management in a crisis situations

Currently, the architecture of all systems for crisis-management is 1) centralized and 2) centralized at multiple organizations, who each have a piece of the puzzle. In the Netherlands, the National Crisis Management System (LCMS) is used by all the actor who are needed by the response to a crisis situation. With decentralized techniques emerging, how can the information management of a massive public interest like crisis management, be redesigned towards a more risk-tolerant system? Dutch public safety organizations are forming an alliance to experiment and launch new ways of tackling complex problems, new ways of collaborating and new technology. The Instituut Fysieke Veiligheid (IFV), Ministry of Justice & Safety, Safety Region Noord-Nederland and Safety Region Rotterdam are welcoming ideas and ideations to create two hackathon challenges.




Challenge: TVM

Risk management and insurance from the cargo perspective

Traditionally transportation insurance companies focus on ensuring the truck, boat or train first. Trends are the insurance of the cargo becomes more and more important. And will in the longer term also be impacted by trends like self-driving trucks and different means of transportation like drones. This comes with needs and opportunities for transportation companies and their customers, moving to one insurance and risk management solution for all movements necessary to get a freight from NY to Berlin. We like to summarize this as ’risk management and insurance from the cargo perspective’. To achieve effective solutions, we have to solve challenges like shifting responsibilities for the cargo at different stages of the journey and variability in rules for cargo in different countries.

Transport Verzekerings Maatschappij (TVM) is a so-called mutual cooperation owned by transporters with over 50 years experience in cargo insurance, a market leader in the Netherlands with a solid business in Belgium and a growing business in Germany. TVM is moving from a specialized transportation insurer towards a logistic services cooperation, as new tech solutions like permanent track&trace and like the use of data(-analytics) brings huge opportunities for clients of TVM to getting them what they really want (having their risk managed), rather than ‘just’ being handed out an insurance policy.

Is it possible to truly open up for all parties involved in transport? For all parties to add trust to the chain? Is it then possible to have freight owners directly insuring and for TVM to directly manage their risk? Is it possible to work towards a simple solution covering both risk management and insurance, where today solutions on both subjects are fragmented? Fragmentation is caused by different laws in different counties, not integrated (technical) solutions, many different insurance companies and policies, data owned and protected by different actorS, etc etc.

Logistics is a dynamic and complex business with huge impact on today’s society in many ways. If you share our enthusiasm and drive to make a positive impact, believe like we do the mutual cooperation basis is a great starting point, please join us in our challenge!




Challenge: DUO (with the support of Hanzehogeschool and Rijksuniversiteit Groningen)

Worldwide deployment of your diplomas and credentials

You should be able to verifiable deploy your credentials and diploma’s worldwide, without any friction, for living, working and being educated. How to make this a reality and how to transform these credentials into value/rights?

Can we build a wallet where your lifelong-learning credentials and diplomas are easy accessible, shareable and usable, and do those credentials come with vouchers or tokens for more and future education?

DUO, Hanzehogeschool and Rijksuniversiteit Groningen want to add value for their students and alumni. As the Dutch Executive Agency of the Ministry of Education, DUO has the unique position to bring value to validated credentials and the alumni owning them.



Challenge: DutchChamber of Commerce

The Chamber of Commerce becoming an oracle in the Digital Infrastructure of a Nation

The mission of the Dutch Chamber of Commerce (KVK) is making life easier for entrepreneurs by providing useful information and trust, safety and security when doing business. Like a citizen has an identity each company has an identity, registered by the KVK.

The Dutch Chamber of Commerce is building an identity-checker that gives an entrepreneur the possibility to identify himself in the digital world. Implementation of this pilot is the first step for a role as an oracle, which would be a groundbreaking paradigm shift for the Dutch entrepreneurial landscape, to create new and better products and services for companies.

How can the Chamber of Commerce support entrepreneurs in the Netherlands, Europe and all over the world? How can we make doing business easier because we can trust our partner? Which (inter)national organizations and people should be on board in this mission?




Challenge: Crypto Valley Association

How to decentralize governance?

Centralization is the biggest reason for slow and inefficient progress for every big project, organization or ecosystem. Crypto Valley, which itself has over 1000 members, wants to challenge the ecosystem in developing a decentralized governance model, supported by technology. What is the ultimate decentralized governance model for a blockchain project and what steps are needed to get to this model? The Crypto Valley Association (Zug, Switzerland) is one of the world’s leading blockchain and cryptography ecosystems.




Challenge: KLM

Creating a seamless flow at airports through biometrics

KLM and its partners want to develop the  ‘seamless flow’ concept: one biometric scan per traveller, biometric scanners to recognize these travellers and consequently no more showing of boarding passes or passports and no lines to wait in.

KLM has successfully finished a biometrics pilot in Aruba airport, with biometrics gates (facial recognising). KLM for this pilot collaborated with the Dutch National Identity Agency, the Dutch Ministry for Justice and Safety, Schiphol Airport and the Royal Netherlands Marechaussee.

Now it is time to scale this pilot and ask and answer the right questions, to build a customer prototype able to for instance place biometric information on a smart device in such a way, that it is GDPR proof and cannot be spoofed (jailbreaking).




Challenge: Nuon/Vattenfall

Optimizing the use of resources for offshore wind installations 

Offshore wind faces extreme cost challenges and needs to reduce its environmental footprint (area and materials used), in order to fulfil growth targets set by governments.

Wrong management of wind farms can result in wear and tear of parts and loss of productivity. NUON/ Vattenfall’s challenge is optimizing the Annual Energy Production (AEP) of wind farms, considering all available data and allowing for communication between turbines. NUON/ Vattenfall wants to use the “machine learning” approach for this.

Possible paths to discover

Collecting the mass of data available and identifying which “hidden” data can be made available efficiently;

How can an algorithm be calibrated to meet all safety requirements?

What additional value does turbine-to-turbine communication have?

Can an algorithm help build wind farms in smaller areas and/or closer to each other while maintaining high AEP?

Can an algorithm help to balance production across assets and help the transmission system operator with balancing?

In the Hall of Knights, NUON/ Vattenfall wants to find out which of these paths are feasible and valuable to further explore, in order to develop a hackathon-challenge with great green and business potential.




Challenge: Nuon/Vattenfall

The Energy Internet – Grid Stabilization and Management

How do we solve the issue of integrating 100,000s of devices (EV, heat pumps, batteries, solar panels, IoT devices) into the grid, and get them to play their full role in balancing the grid?

Grid Stabilization and Management involves all use cases with processes connected to the frequency balancing of the grid and congestion management. This includes both the coordination of participating actors and appliances such as home batteries and EVs as well as the distribution of participant compensation.

Given the increased share of distributed energy resources with intermittent output in the grid, these processes are deemed to become increasingly important in the future. In order to coordinate large numbers of decentralized energy units, NUON/Vattenfall wants to explore the usage of blockchain to create a transparent mechanism for receiving bids for flexibility as well as the tracking of each users’ participation.




Challenge: Nuon/Vattenfall 

Create the key enabler to leapfrog energy transition 

As society, we need a <better>, <faster> and <cheaper> solution to create full disclosure in the flow of energy.

/<Better>: Good data, insight, clear, complete

/<Faster>: Real-time

/<Cheaper>: No additional hardware, low admin cost

We need a reliable system. Currently, only <large> green production is certified. <large>=1MW per month. Certificates are annual based. Certiq, the Dutch organization who is responsible and obliged to hand out certificates, is operating by order of the Dutch Ministry of Economic Affairs and Climate Policy.

Paths to explore

How can we create a reliable, single point of truth via blockchain/dlt?

How can we certify not only large-scale production but also small production on households?

How could you use IoT to measure in house consumption of the production of eg solar panels and measure feed-in without giving insight in the behaviour of the energy user?

How can we estimate the usage of “old meters” and inverters without IoT connection with AI/ML?

How can we be sure the produced energy is produced with renewable assets?

We have appr. 8mio meters we can use as data points, so how can we handle the Big Data?

To make the leapfrog in energy transition, we need insight to create above or ‘answer above questions’, plan the bridge to the Paris agreement and execute the plan




Turn deserts into fruitful fields

Fonio is a cereal, that could be crucial in feeding the world. It is one of the world’s fastest-growing cereals, reaching maturity in as little as six to eight weeks. It is a crop that can be relied on in semi-arid areas with poor soils, where rains are brief and unreliable. No pesticides are needed for its cultivation and it is gluten free. The problem with fonio is that the preparation of the seeds is extremely labour-intensive. Fortunately, a small hulling machine has been created, which should make the re-introduction of fonio more acceptable. The growing should start through the levels of farmers, village, region and rest of the world.

Which commons can we design to make fonio available and widely adopted? And what can those commons mean for the goal of solving world hunger? Can we build the unimaginable but buildable?

Can we design a digital food ecosystem that operates everywhere in the world that enables and eases the fonio production in Africa in general and (pilot) Chad in particular? Can we shorten the necessary supply chains?

The Food-community in the Netherlands ranges from huge corporates (second exporter of food in the world) to networks of innovative people. There are several initiatives supporting the challenge, like a preparatory hackathon for the creation of open source building blocks.




Creating a machine liberation front

What are the 5 rules that are required for a machine to comply with, to be an ownerless system, beneficial to society?

In an ecosystem called ‘nature 2.0’, which is beneficial for (future) society and all its inhabitants, an attitude change towards machines is necessary, to boldly spoken liberate machines from human oppression. Several communities want to help creating ownerless machines.

How do we design a construct where these machines are autonomous and behave in a way that it fits the ecosystem, by bringing basic needs into abundance, while serving human race and earth at the same time? What pre-set of starting points and values do we need, and how can we articulate this in a flexible but vigorous way.

In the Nature 2.0 track, as we are looking for the unimaginable but buildable, every hackathon team’s ambition should be to create a community or ecosystem surrounding the team prior to the hackathon. The complexity of the Nature 2.0 challenge forces the teams to take a dream as their starting point and prepare with a diverse group of experts, who in turn will help them in venturing out after the hackathon. The first meetup is planned on October 1st!



Challenge: DutchChain

Creating an ecosystem dashboard

Each ecosystem is an information network in its own context. The world is interconnected, all contexts are interlinked. The current platforms like LinkedIn, Twitter, YouTube and Medium are 1) not interconnected and 2) cannot provide the context for any specific ecosystem.

DutchChain wants to explore how to create an optimal people network and information (knowledge and activities) interface system, to allow all ecosystems to connect and interact. How to allow for optimal interaction between the ecosystems, asking and answering questions and connecting to people who are valuable for your specific initiative or goal?

Could we have a filter per ecosystem, which indexes all context and information on a topic, based on your personal preferences, publications and contributions? Could we create a meta-wiki alike search engine stream, which exactly shows what the trends, publications and thought leaders of a certain topic are for you?



Challenge: DutchChain

Creating a DAICO innovation instrument for the tokenization of the DutchChain ecosystem

We want to develop an economic incentive infrastructure to commonize DutchChain, which enables people to use, contribute and benefit from the components of its infrastructure, like the Hackathon.

The introduction of a token, or a Decentralized Autonomous Initial Coin Offering, could be a way to better the input/impact ratio: more impact using a more effective infrastructure, enabling the ecosystem to be more successful.

Now we have to ask ourselves, when a new protocol needs to be initiated, how to get to the best economic infrastructure and how to design the token? What will the token holder own and/or do with the token? How will the token be actually used? When will transactions occur? And how do you as token holder interact (app, doc) when you are using the DutchChain infrastructure?

DutchChain will eat its own dog food and itself is challenging the ecosystem to build a prototype of the system during the Hackathon,  with 10.000 euro in cash and DutchChain acceleration power for the winner.

Check these videos for the first two iterations and the parties involved so far:




Challenge: BiomimicryNL

Developing open-sourced building blocks based on nature’s designs and processes

Biomimicry is the science of studying natures designs and processes and applying this in technological and social initiatives. The biomimicry community is challenging the ecosystem to come up with new questions.

What would help you most? The narrative of ant colony resilience? Where individually limited intelligent entities collectively become a superorganism, capable of changing roles based on contextual change and highly attuned sensorial information exchange? Or the narrative of the forest where we as humans see individual trees competing for sunlight? But where the forest actually is “one” singleton in which trees compete in a cooperative framework.

This highly connected and interdependent system operates on different layers of information and resource exchange supported by the underground mycelium network. Would that help you rethink cities? Could we use the forest analogy and the ecosystem services forests provide as a framework for city design? M2M ecosystems? Or even the interoperability challenge we face in the blockchain, AI and machine-realm? Let’s discuss and find out how we can co-create conditions that are conducive to life!

Inspiration from nature? Great. But flipping this around: the biomimicry community is now asking you: what question do you want to ask nature for the development of open-sources building blocks? Biomimicry experts can help biologise a design question: which functions should we look for in nature (and in the community) for your question?

Challenge: Ocean Protocol & Brightlands

Creating an Artificial Intelligent Decentralized Autonomous Organization

We arrived at the point where we can create networks that are capable of fully supporting digital life. We want to take it a step further by creating an unstoppable A.I., which is alive, evolves just like a small virus would, starts owning itself and has access to resources.

This Artificial Intelligent Decentralized Autonomous Organization (AI DAO) will be fully intelligent and autonomous in governance and decision making.

This challenge has a common ground with initiatives like Nature 2.0 and Artonomous. Could this entity be launched in the physical domain? How about a DAO Bed & Breakfast or a DAO road network?

Ocean Protocol and Brightlands aim to challenge the ecosystem to create this new entity, or smart virus, and are now looking for feedback, insights and possible collaborations.
