Economic and Business Model Assessment for Blockchain Social Impact Venture

Case Synopsis -

When you pair blockchain technology with industrial hemp you open a door of unlimited potential. In a world where simply planting 1 million trees may not be enough to address climate change, we at Atlas' believe one solution is pairing blockchain technology with one of our planet's best carbon sinks to increase the amount of hemp we grow around the world. But not only does this pairing contribute to climate action - with blockchain technology we can also address other sustainable development goals such as reducing poverty, good health and well-being, quality education, and so much more. In this assignment students will gain experience of how blockchain technology is utilized in the digital - decentralized era and how it can be used to create social impact in communities around the world.
