Blockchain For Ethical Finance In U.K.
Responsible Finance & Investment (RFI) Foundation is a non-profit with the goal of bringing together various forms of responsible finance practices to encourage consensus as the basis for standards, practices and regulations. The organization will now work to incorporate a blockchain tool for tracking companies’ sustainable commitments. Public blockchains use a ledger of transactions that is totally transparent for anyone to look at. This will highlight in real time when ethical credentials are not upheld. This is especially beneficial for tracking standards of what is considered “green” or where donations are actually going. The system will hopefully help curb “greenwashing,” where companies actions don’t match how ethical or environmentally friendly they claim to be.
CTFC Questions Smart Contract Developers
Brian Quintenz of the U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission has addressed the question of accountability regarding smart contracts. Blockchain technology has created an entirely new mode of operation for financial interactions and supply chain management systems. However, the problems highlighted by the CTFC show continued lack of understanding, and potentially a new era of financial regulatory practices. One of the primary goals of public cryptocurrencies is to remove intermediaries. Government regulatory bodies such as the CTFC operate as nothing other than intermediaries. One examples in question are who is to blame if code is written into a smart contract where the developer is aware that an overseas user would be breaking U.S. law by using the contract. Another is can code written to provide investment incite constitute advice given by the individual who coded the program.
