"Nature 2.0 aims for an ownerless layer of natural resources
and intelligent agents that promote sustainable public utilities
in a world of abundance"

                                   -Trent McConaghy

8.7 million animal species have working ecosystems to fulfil their basic needs like housing, eating, transportation, and energy. None of these ecosystems are based on ownership, money and identity like we know and use it. And if you look carefully, you’ll discover that some of these ecosystems are not even based on scarcity (like we need it for our business models) but on commons and abundance.

Nature2.0 is one, and possibly the most ambitious track of the hackathon, the biggest blockchain hackathon in the World (April 11th -15th 2019). It is also an open community that will gather on We want to bring together the worlds of blockchain and AI to explore and build ecosystems, beneficial for society. Another way to put it is that we want to unveil and explore disruptive change before it happens. Working assumption and main challenge of Nature2.0 is the UNIMAGINABLE, but BUILDABLE

In the Nature 2.0 track, inspiring unimaginable non-human narratives will be combined with an exploration of those new and buildable digital entities that appear when we use the possibilities of blockchain, artificial intelligence and autonomous assets to create open source ecosystems. Think about DAOs (distributed autonomous organization), AI-DAOs, digital twins, autonomous assets (like self-driving cars), user-curated lists and distributed market places for sensor & AI data and AI algorithms.

Nature 2.0 is an exciting new topic on the intersection of AI and (you guessed it) nature, and while the crowd is exploring this concept, Ismaël is exploring the crowd.

How would the Nature 2.0 narrative sound in your words?

The Cradle of Civilization Gets an Upgrade

– Trent McConaghy
Here’s a broader question that we could all ask: how can we transition from a mentality of scarcity — a zero-sum game of “I win, you lose” — to one of abundance — a positive sum game, where “everybody wins” ?

Curated Governance with Stake Machines
– Dimitri De Jonghe
Humans have the tendency of being egocentric. Personal gains are more tempting than doing something for the common good. It’s our will to survive and thrive and it’s easy to forget that collaboration probably leads to more sustainable solutions. But not all is lost… I hope…

Blockchain and Tokenization: Beyond the Hype
– Rutger van Zuidam
Some say the blockchain bubble has burst. We prefer to look at what has been learned and focus on the real potential. We do this by doing we have always done: discover the future by actually building it. In collaboration with everyone who wants to be part of it.
