Kyoto joins BC100+ initiative to help scale sustainable development impact goals through blockchain

We are pleased to announce that Kyoto has been accepted into the BC100+ initiative. 

Spearheaded under the “High Patronage of H.E. Csaba Kőrösi, President of the 77th UN General Assembly”, the BC100+ brings together an array of organisations who share a common goal - a commitment to leveraging blockchain technology in support of the UN Charter values and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Commenting on the news, Ashton Hunt, Co-founder of Kyoto, stated:

"Joining the BC100+ initiative is a step forward for Kyoto and reaffirms our dedication to leveraging blockchain for the greater good. 

“Trust in public institutions is waning on a global scale, and the urgency to address pressing issues like climate change and biodiversity has never been more critical. Through our participation in BC100+, we aim to use the transformative power of blockchain to address these challenges head-on."

The BC100+ initiative

The BC100+ initiative, formed in the wake of the 2023 SDG Summit and the 2024 Summit of the Future, is committed to fostering an open, evidence-based dialogue on the potential of blockchain technology to advance the 2030 Agenda. By bringing together a diverse coalition of stakeholders, BC100+ seeks to promote the responsible and impactful use of blockchain technology to address global sustainability challenges.

Kyoto’s commitment to using blockchain for better

As a signatory of the BC100+, Kyoto is dedicated to collaborating with stakeholders across sectors to explore innovative solutions that align with UN Charter values and the 2030 Agenda. The organisation truly believes that blockchain technology has the potential to rebuild trust, empower communities, and redistribute value on a global scale. Through participation in the BC100+, Kyoto aims to drive meaningful change and unlock global, digital solutions to systemic issues.

By joining the BC100+ network, the project also aims to widen its collaborative efforts and expand the reach of blockchain’s use cases in addressing long-term societal challenges. Through collaboration, innovation, and advocacy, Kyoto and fellow BC100+ members are committed to accelerating progress towards a more sustainable and equitable future for all.
