Episode 89: BlockIS Mini-Series: Focusing on Logistics

Your Block.IS Mini-Series is back for its 3rd installment – and today Francesca Aliverti, focuses on the logistics sector, which has been truly been shaken as a place for best practices, through the use of blockchain. Logistics overall is a market projected to hit the 12 trillion mark in the coming years. Yet, a massive part of the sector is opaque and is pushing hard to radically innovate. But let’s hear it from the innovators themselves – Marco Filippi (Volvero) and JC Finidori (HODLNG)

Meet the guests:

Jean-Christophe (JC) Finidori: Founder & General Manager, HODLNG
Jean-Christophe holds an MSc in organizational behavior and a post-graduate degree in electronic media. A real self-starter, serial entrepreneur, backed by more than 25 years of experience on the Internet, he builds the narrative and collaborations around new technologies (from the Web 1.0 to the Decentralized Internet). Known for award-winning publications; honored by the Commercial Science Academy in France. Former UN civil servant with UPU; ICANN staff member; EY Senior consultant.
With HODLNG, we build a Blockchain solution for the liquefied natural gas (LNG) sector. LNG operators benefit from creating unique digital assets. A digital asset captures all information of a given LNG volume, including non tangible attributes associated with a cargo to divide, track, negotiate, offset, and strengthen sustainable actions; governed by smart contracts, triggering positive social impacts. Tracked-volume is coupled with GHG emissions and carbon compensation; achieving a proof-of-offsetting (certification) consensus. We duplicate the mechanism for social & governance (ESG) values. Fees collected throughout the digital asset’s lifetime are donated to vetted NGOs, indigenous communities, to achieve the SDGs.
