Release for the Blockchain Maturity Model
LinkedIn
March 14, 2023
The Government Blockchain Association Association (hashtag#GBA) will release the world premier hashtag#blockchain assessment standard called the Blockchain Maturity Model (BMM), available April 30th, 2022.

The Key Takeaways:

Governments need blockchain solutions, but do not know how to judge a viable blockchain solution from a less mature one. Therefore, hashtag#governments will always resort to traditional government contractors, leaving emerging blockchain companies behind.
The BMM offers a set of industry standards, providing governments and others the information needed to evaluate blockchain solutions.
The Blockchain Maturity Model (BMM) will help blockchain companies improve their solutions, as well as demonstrate that they have met trusted and vetted industry standards

Offline Payments and CBDC - Key Takeaway
LinkedIn
October 10, 2023
Offline Payments and CBDC - Key Takeaways

I wanted to share some interesting insights on implementing offline payment capabilities for central bank digital currencies (CBDC). This is based on recent research published by the BIS Innovation Hub.

Providing offline payments is important for many central banks but complex to implement, with no one-size-fits-all solution. Different central banks have different motivations based on their local context and objectives around inclusion, cash-like features, and resilience.

On the technology side, solutions are at varying stages of maturity, from leveraging existing tech like smart cards to more novel approaches. Vendors face challenges like proving security/production-readiness and obtaining funding.

Central banks need to take an iterative, requirement-driven approach to design, clearly specifying their needs and collaborating closely with vendors to find optimal solutions. Many interlinked design choices exist around areas like user experience, security, risk management and integration. ️ Trade-offs are likely.

Central banks should drive innovation by setting requirements and standards. This helps vendors develop suitable solutions and demonstrate value. Analysis shows gaps in existing threat modeling frameworks for novel tech like DLT, so extending frameworks could help strengthen security.

Overall, offline payments are complex but important for many central banks. Careful, collaborative design focused on specific jurisdictional contexts is key to creating CBDC solutions that meet central bank objectives around inclusion, cash-like features and resilience.

Credit card giant Visa has launched an NFT creator program
LinkedIn
March 14, 2023
Credit card giant Visa has launched an NFT creator program in an effort to bring small businesses into the digital economy.

“We’ve seen rapid growth in the NFT ecosystem over the past year,” Cuy Sheffield, head of crypto at Visa, told TechCrunch. “We think NFTs represent a new form of e-commerce.”

The idea of a small business is evolving from the traditional “brick-and-mortar mom-and-pop shops” to include other independent businesses with creators and entrepreneurs who want to build digital-focused companies and harness new tools like NFTs, Sheffield said.

The one-year immersion program, the Visa Creator Program, will bring together a global cohort of creators including artists, musicians, fashion designers and filmmakers the ability to build their businesses with NFTs.

There’s no “hard cap” on the number of creators for the first cohort and all members will have access to Visa clients and a broader network of mentors, Sheffield noted.

“Large merchants and brands are asking every day how they can get involved.” Sheffield said. “The thing that’s so exciting to us about NFTs is we think it lowers the barrier to entry for people to build a business and sell online.”

The Harmonious Symbiosis of AI and Human Singularity: Advancing Workforce Efficiency and Quality
LinkedIn
October 14, 2023
In recent decades, the advent of Artificial Intelligence (AI) has been a catalyst for discussion, deliberation, and in some cases, discord, within the professional and academic communities. The discourse often orbits around the potential ramifications of AI on the future of the global workforce. Pessimistic narratives foresee a scenario where AI usurps human jobs, leading to widespread unemployment and socio-economic disarray. On the flip side, a more nuanced and optimistic perspective envisions AI as a potent tool for augmenting the quality and efficiency of human labor rather than replacing it. This dichotomy of viewpoints underscores the need for a deeper, more nuanced exploration of AI's role and potential in modern work ecosystems.
