One Belt, One Road, One World: Connecting International Innovation to the Developing World

At the 19th National Congress in October 2017, China’s President Xi Jinping’s visionary “One Belt One Road” initiative was unexpectedly included in the Communist Party’s Constitution, reflecting President Xi’s ambitious desire to cement his legacy in leading China to take a global leadership role in the world.
 
The Belt & Road Initiative is intended to drive trade and capital flows between the East and the West, by improving the infrastructure of ancient overland and maritime routes, connecting more than 65 countries across Europe, Asia and Africa. These routes represent the highest growth developing countries over the next few decades, covering two-thirds of the world’s population, and constituting a third of the global Gross Domestic Product. It is anticipated that this initiative will consume most of China’s outbound investment in the upcoming decades, costing over US$1.7 trillion per year through 2030. Based on this infrastructure’s investment, the annual trade volume between China and the countries along the Belt & Road routes is expected to exceed US$2.5 trillion over the next 10 years.
 
As the world pivots from West to East, the Belt & Road Initiative is freeing the flow of trade and capital for the benefit of all its constituent countries. This is best achieved through blockchain cutting edge technology, which is disrupting every imaginable industry by disintermediating traditional central authorities controling information flow and by allowing third parties to conduct trade and services in a trusted but completely decentralized way. In addition, blockchain technology naturally complements the natural development of the Belt and Road, as most of the early effort is focused on infrastructure projects such as railways, roads, ports, power plants, and Information Technology networks.
 
As such, there is a unique opportunity for the best-in-class international blockchain companies to strategically collaborate together to provide the communications and operational backbone that can directly overlay on top of the infrastructure build-out. By collaborating, there is an opportunity to create unifying platforms to allow the interoperability of all the critical software services for the Belt and Road such as logistics, back office, reservation, payment transfer, trade finance, and so forth. These services should interoperate with Artificial Intelligence, Industry 4.0, autonomous vehicles, big data, and Internet of Things solutions to truly enable smart cities to flourish.
 
Even though the Belt and Road may be a Chinese initiative, it takes a global effort involving international organizations, technology companies, the finance industry, professional services, local government/firms, and the participating cities along the new Silk Road. The mission of the One World Blockchain Alliance is to connect the most innovative blockchain companies in the developed world to the vast opportunities of the developing world for the benefit of all. One Belt, One Road, One World – all connected by The Blockchain.

Tech for Tao: ArtPi Access :>> Yanling Duan

Yanling Duan
Undoubtably China is due to become one of the most influential cultural exporter and art market for the world followed by its economic growth in the 21st century. In- depth understanding and creditable critique is crucial for generating interests and appreciation for Chinese creative works in the global market. However understanding and trust remains the major hurdle today. ArtPi, a global art market intelligence platform powered by blockchain is designed to foster a sustainable ecosystem interweaving art, education, technology, human psyche so to generate a paradigm shift in the perception of cultural and art value. ArtPi employs its own cryptocurrency to incentivize analysts and critics to share their views and insights, while providing a platform for individual trade and agent & consultant service from industry experts. Ultimately, the platform solves some critical problems facing the cultural & art market today: forgeries, manipulation and circulation hurdle.

HTTPSI: New Internet Identity Protocol for Society :>> Wendell Brown

Wendell Brown, CEO and Co-founder of Averon, will discuss the initiative for a new Internet Identity Protocol, called HTTPSi. As Walter Isaacson said last year "The Internet Is Broken: It's packets are encoded with the address of their destination but not of their authentic origin." This fundamental flaw of the Internet, the lack for a secure identity layer, is the central cause of a myriad of major problems across the globe, from fraudulent financial transactions, stolen email accounts, bank hacking, fake news and election tampering. Today we can create the future of the Internet as it should be, truly secure and accessible for everyone.

Blockchain's Answer to Climate Change :>> Lisa Walker & Laszlo Giricz

Lisa Walker Lazlo Giricz
Even with the positive progress made by the Paris Agreement, carbon emissions are not yet on track to stay within a safe limit for the world’s climate. However, we have never been better placed to solve this problem. Using blockchain, we are building a platform to empower retailers and consumers to rebalance the unavoidable carbon emissions that we all create each day. By connecting consumers with the carbon credits that finance protecting and restoring forests, we boost the world's natural capacity to absorb carbon emissions, whilst contributing to multiple SDGs, educating consumers on their invisible emissions and creating a more effective global market for carbon.

How Countries Can Structure Financial Regulations to Leverage Advanced Technology Research, with Dustin Boyer

Dustin Boyer
Advanced technological innovations are becoming more capital and labor intensive while at the same time returns on investment capital are decreasing. Cryptocurrencies and initial coin offerings are taking the world by storm but are they sustainable? Countries that over regulate these emerging markets risk being left behind in a time of exponential growth. Countries that let crypto markets run wild risk destabilizing their economies. This talk will explore ways that regulators can take advantage of new financial tools to not only build long term stability in emerging cryptocurrency markets but to use those tools to advance and profit from bleeding edge technology research.

The New Pivot to Asia: Fintech and the Need for Smart Regulation, with Dr. James Cooper

James Cooper
Blockchain technology has the potential to promote and harmonize the collaboration between the East and the West. China, with its world’s leading data industry and network industry, has incubated numbers of talented developers. However, due to several limitations, including restrictions from the current anti-cryptocurrency policies and immaturity of the market, there is a lack of right understanding of blockchain technology. More specifically, owing to the limited recognition of blockchain in China, the public tends to mix the blockchain technology with cryptocurrency, which is a product based on blockchain technology. Contrary to the East, blockchainized companies are allowed to finance in Western countries. Some projects with great development prospect can raise capital in the West. Possessing a massive information base and outstanding personnel, China can serve as an incubation center for the actual implementation of blockchain projects, which will ultimately foster the success of prospective blockchain projects. Lastly, we are deploying our “one belt one road” plans. Previously, the West regards China’s “one belt one road” concept as merely helping other countries to build infrastructure, along with exporting goods and products. However, technology export is one of the major components of this strategic concept. Via the launch of Blockchain Centre Vilnius, which will happen on 27th of January, we aim to educate the next generation by introducing a technological paradigm shift that redefines the way money, value and trust is transacted. Blockchain centre will enhance the knowledge of the public about the infinite potentiality of blockchain technology, and the adoption of blockchain technology in the world.

The Future of Retail: How Self Sovereign Identities -a Novel Form of Revenue Optimization- and Sustainability Will Create Value For Both Retailers and Customers, with Samantha Zirkin and Matt Shay

Samantha Zirkin Matt Shay
For all its advances and amazements, modern commerce does not yet allow for individualized communication at scale and in real-time. Point 93 changes that. By empowering individuals with their own blockchain identities, and a new mode of conversation that captures previously unknowable data and sentiment, Point 93's technology optimizes how we buy, price, and sell. It revolutionizes communication and eliminates trillions of dollars of inefficiency and waste. As the entire retail industry moves towards personalization and real-time communication, retailers are better able to understand and partner with their customers to effect change and create value for both parties. Emerging technology, like Point 93, has a critical role this evolution. At the National Retail Federation (NRF), Matt Shay serves as chief advocate and spokesman for the United States’ largest private-sector industry employer. Since his arrival in 2010, Shay has transformed NRF into Washington’s most powerful voice supporting the retail industry, leading the organization to new levels of effectiveness on policy issues, increasing awareness of the industry’s economic impact and expanding political engagement. Working with retail and associate partners, the NRF advances efforts that integrate sustainability practices and corporate social responsibility goals into daily business operations. Through conscious capitalism, retailers and suppliers commit to transparency and initiatives that address health, energy conservation, education, the environment, worker equality, and overall sustainability goals.

Goodwill In, Goodwill Out: Realizing New Inclusive Models of Commerce Through Liquid Social Capital, with Gert Sylvest

Gert Sylvest
Increasingly companies are born as digital multinational commercial organisations. The e-commerce proportion of global commerce is rapidly increasing, B2B marketplaces and networks transact GDP-sized volumes on a weekly basis. Despite this, commercial divides on trade fundamentals such as access to finance, access to market and information asymmetry have not significantly diminished. Companies compete for access to market on price not quality. More than 80% of oustanding receivables cannot be intermediated. This is the reality today where economic operators don't know which companies to trust. This partifularly impacts MSMEs, which make up 99% of all companies, and particularly in countries that are at the lower end of the Transparency International index - currently hosting more than 5Bn people. The traditional answer to this is for companies to build up trust, over time, in social networks of relationships. However that is exactly the reverse of how supply chains operate today, where interactions and relationships either decay in data silos, lack digitization, or are built on centrally defined identities and ratings. The net result is that commercial goodwill lacks liquidity, and we fail to overcome the commercial divides. Blockhain seems well positioned as an enabler. But to create viable business models around it, we need to provide that which blockchain in itself does not provide: the right governance, shared standards, digitization, adoption and data sharing incentives for the supply chain. Here is how we can make it happen at GDP scales.

Tokens and Trading Inside Contracts: How Blockchain Will Bring Agreements to Life :>> Dave Hanley

Dave Hanley
Skipping Smart Contracts’ Evolutionary Stage: why moving directly to revolutionary blockchain contracts will be the only thing that saves it from certain death. The use of blockchain as a means to record contract elements and signatures in a world where final signed and notarized contracts are still required has varying level of benefit. So much so that we opted out of putting Tomorrow’s estate planning documents in the blockchain at launch, despite the number of miners and traders on our team. However, in a world of living contracts, where the contract as a longitudinal impact on parties and where assets, asset value, recipients, recipient needs, and recipient priorities may change, creating an open, easy and documented marketplace for easy exchange unlocks new value. A marketplace for nonstandard items can be created within the trust and across trusts. Examples: Estate belongings: Trade mom’s piano for $10,000 in cash today. Heirs horse trade art for property while parents are alive or after. Estate asset transfer: Private stock, illiquid assets, and liquid assets can be traded in a marketplace to create a real price among heirs, versus relying on external valuations. Tax benefit shifting: Tax-benefitting actions such as donations or capital loss will have disproportionate benefit depending on the recipient. Trading those benefits prior to the sale/trade/gift allows for the potential unlocking of tax benefit. Another element in a living, longitudinal contract is the Atomizing of contract elements and the unlocking of a marketplace. Atomizing through tokenization allows interested parties to easily sell and trade benefits and risks in an open and documented format. Examples include: Trading equity rights: Sell liquidation preference for cash, shares, or other upside, shifting the benefit to those who value downside protection from those who value something else more. Finally, we will cover the power of mutual agreement in unlocking contract operations and benefits. When multiple parties agree in a living contract to participate in the function and administration according to certain milestones or plans, unlocking operations and benefits can be difficult and often subject to legal proceedings. Through appointing parties internal and external to determine whether a milestone has been accomplished, providing an open and documented action, and using unique keys for each individual to unlock, subsequent rights or steps to a contract can be unlocked, be they payment, information access, or something else. Estate Execution: Multiple trusted individuals may hold keys to the trusteeship of a trust, but they may lack information rights, access to documents, or ability to enact portions of a trust. When all three trustees agree that an individual is deceased or incapacitated, they may all “turn their keys” to unlock the benefit or operational capability. Taking contract elements that require legal language and documentation and recording signatures and the document text in the blockchain is purely evolutionary and woefully insufficient to effect change. The revolution needed will require innovations such as tokenized transfer of nonstandard assets, atomizing contract elements for trade, and multi-party consensus to free us from the binds of the legal document and move to a more open future.
