Blockchain wallet Everex has announced that it will join the Blockchain for Social Impact Coalition (BSIC), blockchain software company ConsenSys’ social issues incubator, as well as compete in the BSIC hackathon scheduled for September 7th – October 7th. BSIC bases its focus on the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals.
“An important aspect of our vision here at Everex is making a difference for the better in people’s everyday lives,” said Everex CEO, Alexi Lane. “That’s why we’ve joined the Blockchain for Social Impact Coalition (BSIC): to join a growing coalition of blockchain products and solutions designed to address social and environmental challenges.”
“Diverse designers, developers, entrepreneurs and thought leaders all in one room designing transformational technologies, and addressing complex challenges,” added Lane. “This is exactly the sort of high stakes and high talent environment Everex thrives in.”
BSIC exclusively promotes Ethereum blockchain solutions and focuses on financial inclusion, supply chains, identity and vulnerable peoples, energy, and the environment. An initiative of Brooklyn-based venture production studio ConsenSys, it includes ABN-AMRO, Alice, Alpha Source, Disberse, EDU, Future of Property Rights, Slave Free Trade, MIT Solve and more than 16 others.
“The groups taking part in BSIC are a diverse set that actually complement each other quite nicely,” said Lane. “We will undoubtedly see a full spectrum transformation of the way things are, and in large part thanks to the companies taking part in this initiative.”
