Blockchain for Reconciliation exists in response to the 92nd call to action put forward by the Truth and Reconciliation Commission. We aim to bridge the gap between Indigenous people and emerging tech, because digital equity is the fastest route towards overall equity.
Through engaging Indigenous communities on the potential of distributed ledger technology, we work with them directly on developing use cases for strengthening their communities. Be it through more frictionless and transparent systems of governance, distributed identity systems, or encrypted communication, we see many avenues for promoting Indigenous autonomy while helping communities become competitive in the current technological landscape.
We also educate tech companies on how they can support the 94 calls to action put forward by the Truth and Reconciliation Commission. Through finding novel use cases for technology that has already been developed, we hope to expedite implementation, as well as create a dialogue between the tech community and the Indigenous community on how best to move forward together.
