Canadian blockchain firm GuildOne has been named a Blockchain Pioneer by the world’s leading blockchain industry research and strategy organization.
CALGARY, Alberta, December 07, 2021--(BUSINESS WIRE)--GuildOne Inc. (GuildOne) is honoured to announce that the company has been accepted as a Blockchain Pioneer by the prestigious Blockchain Research Institute (BRI).
Founded by disruptive technology experts and early blockchain innovators Don and Alex Tapscott, the Toronto-based think-tank unites global experts in building a strategic vision for blockchain’s role in digital transformation.
"Blockchain is unlocking new avenues for sustainable business, providing business leaders with powerful tools to track and mitigate our carbon impacts," said Don Tapscott, Executive Chairman of the Blockchain Research Institute. "At the Blockchain Research Institute, we are pleased to partner with innovative companies like GuildOne, who are paving the way for a blockchain-based low carbon economy."
As a Blockchain Pioneer, GuildOne joins members including Microsoft, Accenture, Deloitte, NASDAQ, and many other forward-looking companies across diverse industries. Through Pioneer status, GuildOne will benefit from access to BRI’s ecosystem and valuable database of 100+ blockchain research projects and will be collaborating with BRI on original research from ESG1, GuildOne’s sustainability division.
Scheduled for release in Q2 2022, the whitepaper will focus on the ESG1’s experience in using public and private blockchain networks to build an automated low-carbon economy, mapping the project’s verified carbon credit tokens from their genesis at an industrial carbon sequestration facility to two separate market pathways: private transactions as offsets, and as a publicly-traded green investment product.
The paper will provide a deep understanding for industry and government on the practical applications of blockchain and tokenization for sustainable project financing, carbon accounting and as a basis for climate-focused investments.
"We’re honoured to be a Pioneer and a BRI member - the success of blockchain relies on the strength of its ecosystems. We view BRI as a powerful and visionary community that will help accelerate our progress towards platforming the low-carbon digital economy," said GuildOne CEO James Graham.
