Transforming Ocean Research Through Blockchain

Recording: Transforming Ocean Research Through Blockchain, Mar 12, 2019


Ocean acidification, temperature rise, deoxygenation etc. damage fisher livelihoods and coastal economies, while data insufficiencies make identifying mitigation or adaption strategies tough. SmallScaleOA (SSOA) incentivizes data-sharing for coastal research and transparent, traceable seafood. Using phones, satellites, blockchain, and IoT, SSOA will exponentially decrease data collection costs, increase the inclusivity and community-relevance of scientific research, and fill knowledge gaps, while equitably compensating data producers and processors.
