In episode 127 of the Disruptors for GOOD podcast I speak with George Coxon, Director of the Nano Foundation, on Nano providing the world an environmentally friendly and sustainable currency for a greener future.
George is Director of the Nano Foundation, Director of Appia and Advisor to the Global Blockchain Initiative. Nano is a digital, borderless currency, designed to bring financial inclusion to all and democratise the global economy.
A degree in Evolutionary Anthropology amplified George’s fascination with social behaviours, giving her a wide understanding of the ways by which efficient, decentralised digital money can empower the underbanked by offering a sustainable and fair medium of exchange anywhere on the planet.
George is clear that an economy that is open to all and empowers those that are marginalised, not only financially but also socially and politically, will be more robust and resilient.
About Nano’s Sustainable Currency
Nano is the world’s most efficient decentralised currency with 0 fees, network settlements in av. 0.2s and a carbon negligible footprint. It is a new currency that happens to be digital. Simple. Just like the cash in your pocket, choosing to transact with nano ensures that 100% of the value is transferred directly to the recipient. Created to facilitate both local and international payments, choosing to use nano makes moving money across borders effortless and feeless.
Nano was created to perform efficiently without the need for mining, an energy-intensive mechanism to process transactions. Instead, nano uses an innovative voting system where no mining is required.
This efficient mechanism allows the nano network to use magnitudes less energy than other digital currencies, providing the world with an environmentally-friendly, and sustainable currency for a greener future.
