To understand the ways in which blockchain can most effectively be used for social impact, our team conducted phone interviews with people in upper-level management positions (often CEOs and founders) at 110 organizations. These interviews were augmented through digital surveys. For this report, we focused on organizations in the following key sectors:

  • Agriculture and land rights
  • Climate and the environment
  • Digital identity
  • Financial inclusion
  • Governance and democracy
  • Health
