Helping the Aviation Sector to achieve Net-Zero, Cathal Foley CEO PACE
Helping the Aviation Sector to achieve Net-Zero, Cathal Foley CEO PACE
The 2022 UN Climate Change Conference (COP27) is taking place in Egypt this week. Climate Change has become more relevant these days and you only have to look at the weather we have been recently having to see its impact. One of the biggest industries that is impacting on climate change is the aviation sector so how can change to live in a world where Climate Change is taking seriously. Ronan talks to Cathal Foley the CEO of PACE about the solution that PACE has for the aviation sector. Cathal talks about what PACE is, how PACE helps to achieve Net-Zero, how they power the consumer, sustainability, airlines carbon footprint, creating shareholder value, how Fexco helps them, and how being based in Kerry helps. More about PACE: Financial technology and business services company Fexco launched PACE (Platform for Analysing Carbon Emissions), to enable airlines, aircraft lessors, and financiers of the aviation sector to accurately measure and manage their carbon emissions to align with Net Zero targets. It is a really interesting new technology that allows those in the aviation sector to have an accurate sense of where they are and also model potential future changes – for example, someone like SMBC can model what impact the introduction of Sustainable Aviation Fuel across its fleet. It’s particularly timely given the recent announcements by Ryanair and IAG of their adoption of sustainable fuel. The technology will also be most helpful as lenders are increasingly seeking to understand carbon emission data when evaluating requests for credit.

Artpool is Pauline Foessel’s baby. A professional Art Curator, initially she created a social network for other professional art curators working in galleries and museums all over the world.

They have a very important role in selecting the artists but also working closely with them, ensuring their art is displayed in the right environment, often challenging them in the process. “If you visit an exhibition and you really enjoy it, then it’s likely the curator did a very good job.

Remi Tuyaerts talks about decentralized non custodial earning options in crypto
Remi Tuyaerts is no stranger to startups. While studying at Nottingham University, he used an exchange year to work on a series of social entrepreneurships in Malaysia. Holding a position of COO for the student project he oversaw the setting up of three self-sustaining projects involving the local populations setting up a black soldier fly farm to eat organic waste (and using the larvae as food for local animals), setting up a mushroom farm in abandoned houses and another project which converted plastics into beanbag and employ homeless people. While he first came across bitcoin in his first year in university, it wasn’t until his final year as a computer scientist that the technology really interested him. With two other fellow students he set up a platform to provide credit for small and medium sized companies. His two fellow students knew nothing about technology and he knew nothing about finance, all three went on a journey that led them to a successful exit for a company that had great ideas but no actual turnover three years later. “We did look at blockchain as part of the solution but this was in 2017 and it just wasn’t ready.” Tuyaerts stayed on as CTO for a period until the business was acquired by a Dutch bank with 350 employees. At this stage he wasn’t getting his hands dirty anymore and he wanted to build again. tune in to hear the full interview. Your host is Jillian Godsil

Green Hydrogen insights with Michael Hecht, CEO for Greater New Orleans Inc.
Green Hydrogen insights with Michael Hecht, CEO for Greater New Orleans Inc.
It is now undeniable: climate change and extreme weather caused by carbon emissions is here, and the need to transition to a green energy economy in America is imminent. But supporters and critics alike have reasonable questions and concerns, how can we transition the energy economy at scale without upending whole markets and suffering massive job losses? Many argue the answer is Green Hydrogen, including Michael Hecht, CEO for Greater New Orleans Inc. (GNO Inc.) Ronan talks to Michael about his background, green hydrogen, Irish tech, the American energy mix in the future, New Orleans, and how tech has helped. More about Green Hydrogen in America: The global Green Hydrogen market is on track to grow 6,000% by 2031, and with tax credits thanks to the Inflation Reduction Act, could become much cheaper than traditional gray hydrogen - hydrogen that is produced using environmentally harmful natural gas or fossil fuels. Three cities are leading the way for America’s transition with regional Green Hydrogen hubs: New Orleans: Louisiana is the #1 consumer of gray hydrogen in the country - 3 times as much as the next state and produces more oil and gas jobs per capita. Southern Louisiana is now at the forefront of the energy evolution, leveraging scale to kickstart a Green Hydrogen hub that will reduce the cost of Hydrogen to $1/gallon, retain and create 100,000 jobs, grow regional GDP by 3.5%, and shrink carbon emissions by 68%.  New York: The Empire State is leading a regional "hydrogen ecosystem" for the northeast. By leveraging a 4-state partnership with New Jersey, Connecicut and Massachusetts, offshore wind and PV to decarbonise the entire hydrogen value chain. The Port Authority will even be taking advantage, acting as a customer and facilitating Green Hydrogen exports. Utah: The ACES Delta Green Hydrogen project located in central Utah is a one-one-of-its kind- clean energy storage project that will be crucial for a a 100% clean energy economy in the region. The Green Hydrogen hub will have the capability to store energy for months at a time. Once completed, the hub will be able to provide Green Hydrogen to other states in the Intermountain West.

The new EU Common Charger Law with Maltese MEP Alex Agius Saliba
The new EU Common Charger Law with Maltese MEP Alex Agius Saliba
Earlier this month the EU passed a new law on common chargers that comes into effect by the end of 2024, requiring all mobile phones, tablets and cameras sold in the EU to be equipped with a USB Type-C charging port. From spring 2026, the obligation will extend to laptops. The new law, is part of a broader EU effort to reduce e-waste and to empower consumers to make more sustainable choices. Under the new rules, consumers will no longer need a different charger every time they purchase a new device, as they will be able to use one single charger for a whole range of small and medium-sized portable electronic devices. Regardless of their manufacturer, all new mobile phones, tablets, digital cameras, headphones and headsets, handheld videogame consoles and portable speakers, e-readers, keyboards, mice, portable navigation systems, earbuds and laptops that are rechargeable via a wired cable, operating with a power delivery of up to 100 Watts, will have to be equipped with a USB Type-C port. Alex Agius Saliba, the Maltese EU lawmaker who steered the common charger bill through the EU assembly talks to Ronan about this new law and why it was badly needed. More about Alex Agius Saliba: Alex is a Maltese politician who was elected as a Member of the European Parliament in 2019 on behalf of the Labour Party. Alex has been serving on the Committee on the Internal Market and Consumer Protection, the Committee on Petitions as Coordinator and the Committee on Employment and Social Affairs.

Ransomware insights with Andrzej Kawalec, Vodafone's Gobal Head of Cybersecurity 
Ransomware insights with Andrzej Kawalec, Vodafone's Gobal Head of Cybersecurity 
Increased digital dependency means that ransomware is the next global pandemic, and this time there is no vaccine that can act as a silver bullet to prevent it. The last twelve months have witnessed an explosion of ransomware incidents across the world. These incidents have also started to have real life consequences, with the attacks on both the Colonial Pipeline and Ireland’s Health Service Executive highlighting that ransomware can impact the public’s everyday life. As society becomes more reliant upon technology and digital systems, driven by the pandemic and the advent of remote working, Andrzej Kawalec Head of Security at Vodafone Business, believes ransomware is set to become the next global pandemic. Much like the COVID-19 pandemic, ransomware is a global problem, and we even see different variants of ransom across the world. The nature of modern cybercrime means that these attacks are now targeted, with cybercriminals undertaking research to understand exactly how much money to demand as ransom. In the future, Andrzej believes we will see misinformation used as a ransom. With an individual or organisation’s brand more important than ever, cybercriminals will look to hijack social media profiles in exchange for a ransom payment. This is the future of extortion. Ronan talks to Andrzej about this and why the focus should be to minimise the impact of an attack and ensure that those businesses that are hit are able to survive without too much damage. More about Andrzej Kawalec: Andrzej Kawalec is the Head of Security Portfolio at Vodafone Business. Andrzej manages Vodafone Business’ global portfolio of security offerings.  He is widely recognised for his expertise in cyber security and digital change. A former CTO himself, he has a vast amount of experience working at the board-level across public and private sectors, helping to define and promote cyber security strategy.  He believes that Security is the enabling layer for innovation. From autonomous driving to digital healthcare, the technologies and societies of the future will not reach their full potential without secure digital foundations. Prior to joining Vodafone, Andrzej was Global CTO for security and Director of Security Research at HP, as well as head of Strategy and CTO at Optiv the world’s largest security Systems integrator.

Demonstrating Futurist Thinking with Thomas Frey
Demonstrating Futurist Thinking with Thomas Frey
Thomas Frey is who you will undoubtedly find when you do a Google search on “futurist speaker”. Having shared the stage with many A-listers, Frey has earned that moniker. But his true skill demonstrated repeatedly in this week’s episode is taking an event or innovation and the extrapolating the future. In this episode we see him do that in real time. It’s a unique glimpse into the futurist process. https://futuristspeaker.com Why a futurist? As a futurist, my goal is to expand our understanding of the future. Every day, thousands of emerging technologies spring to life, thousands of researchers make new discoveries, and thousands of new trends start to reveal themselves. As we move down the path of advancing technology, our relationship with the future has never been clearer; making this both the most exciting and scariest time to be alive, in all human history. There is a constant battle being waged over the needs of the present vs. the needs of the future. Naturally the future cannot be our only priority; otherwise, we lose our ability to function in the present. Near-term issues invariably take precedent over long-term potential; yet, our ability to prioritize importance is directly tied to our vision of the future. Still, it is our vision of the future that determines our actions today. I use this phrase a lot: “The future creates the present!”  Yes, this is just the opposite of what most people think. They believe the work we’re doing today will automatically create the future, but from a little different perspective, it is the images of the future that we hold in our head that determines the decisions we’ll make today. Welcome to the Futurists where your hosts Brett King and Robert Tercek interview the worlds foremost super-forecasters, thought leaders, technologists, entrepreneurs and futurists building the world of tomorrow. Together we will explore how our world will radically change as AI, bioscience, energy, food and agriculture, computing, the metaverse, the space industry, crypto, resource management, supply chain and climate will reshape our world over the next 100 years.

What if the metaverse could really help make banking better?
What if the metaverse could really help make banking better?
Web3 has been called a lot of things: the future of a decentralized web, the money layer for the internet, and the identity layer for the internet. Some see Web3 as a new patron model for the internet—a way for artists and creators to get compensated for their work through new communities and cooperative ownership, as well as the sale, trading and ownership of NFTs and other digital goods. Much of the gaming economy is centered around these types of communities, as are the half dozen or more versions of the metaverse, in which avatar-led facilitators act as the primary-user experiences, and digital goods can be acquired and communities formed. But web3 and the metaverse can mean a lot more for banking. In this episode of One Vision, Bradley hosts a conversation with Caroline Hughes, Co-Founder and CEO of Lifetise, a metaverse that is focused on financial education and helping people create the opportunity to be financially secure and create a life they love. You’ll be sure to love what they are doing.

It’s not all doom and gloom for fintech. Now is the time to build.
We consume a lot of information each day. When we read the latest news about what’s going on in fintech, venture capital, and the different spectrums of new technology, we aren’t always provided context around the broader story, nor are we often brought into the lives of those building what’s next. Context is important, as is understanding how technologies are impacting our lives. Those that shape the news can either remove or fan the flames of biases around our perception of these changes and how they impact our communities. In this episode of One Vision, Bradley chats with Mary Ann Azevedo, Senior Report at Techcrunch, about how she sees the current fintech landscape, and how she approaches the craft and responsibility of reporting the changing face of technology.It’s not all doom and gloom for fintech. Now is the time to build.

Connecting Music Artists to their Fans - using NFTs as a gateway
Connecting Music Artists to their Fans - using NFTs as a gateway
Alex Nahai, co-founder and CEO of DancingSeahorse.com, has a long music career both in working with some of the most prominent artists and companies in the industry. He speaks fondly of times where he was backstage at some of the biggest names in the business including Prince and Calvin Harris and attending events at Coachella. “Each time, the energy was amazing and I felt so privileged to be present. I really wanted to be able to share that feeling with other fans.” With 20 years in showbusiness, Nahai became involved in Web 3 about 18 months ago. He had witnessed the rise of NFTs and the growth of utility in NFTs, and with his partner Andy Nematalla, felt there was an opportunity to use NFTs in the music business. “As NFTs grew in utility, we could see a way of providing relationships between fans and artists, giving the fans access to events and experiences. We certainly felt we had the access to the top names in the music business to make this work.” To find out more, tune in. Your host is Jillian Godsil

Tech is a game changer for any industry Natalie Kaminski, JetRockets CEO
Tech is a game changer for any industry Natalie Kaminski, JetRockets CEO
The war in Ukraine has been going on for seven months now and during that time we have seen some great leadership in action. One great example of this is CEO Natalie Kaminski of software startup JetRockets.  When Russian invaded Ukraine, she did something pretty unbelievable: she helped 46 of her Russian engineers (plus spouses and children) safely relocate out of the country. In the first days of the war, Natalie realised their Russian employees were in physical danger because of their association with an American company. Natalie feared that the Russian police might suspect employees of anti-Russian sentiment and that they could be arrested or have their bank accounts shut down. Where other tech companies have abandoned their employees in the region, Natalie helped every single person who wanted to relocate to get out safely. She's also dedicated significant effort to hiring tech talent based in Ukraine, many of whom had been left unemployed by the war, with 6 Ukrainians already onboarded. Ronan talks to Natalie about this and more. More about Natalie Kaminski: She came to the US at 18 by way of Russia, Ukraine, and Israel with $500 in her pocket and a desire to be financially independent. She had no one to fall back on. Two decades later, she's an active supporter of female leadership in her own and other businesses, has great insights into how the tech industry has changed and the struggles that female founders specifically still face. She is also the acting CTO for many of JetRockets’ clients, so she sees this again and again firsthand.

The temptation of an entrepreneur with Phil Teare, co-founder PureVolt
Serial entrepreneurs are always reinventing themselves as they see new opportunities and take them. One such serial entrepreneur is Phil Teare and his latest venture is PureVolt, a company that provides solar panels installations for homeowners. So, how did Phil get into solar panels? Ronan talks to Phil about this and more. Phil talks about his background, what PureVolt does, the challenges of setting up a new business, working in a power crisis, government grants, how solar panels reduce your bills, solar farms and EV’s. Phil also talks about range anxiety, renewable energy, and digital nomads. More about Phil Teare: Despite his background in science and engineering, it was in business that Phil found his passion. He always believed that successful businesses are built onsustainability. As the science of climate change became clearer over recent years, he came to see that sustainability was just as important in other areas of his life.

Alessandro De Grandi on buying bitcoin in 2010 and building a IRL/Virtual metaverse in The Nemesis
Alessandro De Grandi on buying bitcoin in 2010 and building a IRL/Virtual metaverse in The Nemesis
In 2010, Alessandro De Grandi, CEO and founder of The Nemesis, was playing Second Life, basically a rudimentary Web2 Metaverse, when he bought his first bitcoin, two of them actually. They cost less than a dollar each and he sold them for around $75 a few years later to his great satisfaction. However, it was the sensation of buying bitcoin in a metaverse that changed his thinking. “It was a beautiful sensation. Something changed in my mind when I realised that we could make the metaverse into something that everyone could enjoy. While Web3 had not been invented, I just understood the internet was going to merge with the metaverse.” De Grandi was not a hardcore game, preferring casual games, he instinctive understood that casual gaming would be the gateway drug to the metaverse. He also understood that people, and indeed brands, would need handholding to move from Web2 to Web3. He and his co founder Riccardo Zanini, together with The Nemesis’ CTO Andrea Bernasconi (who had several years of experience in 3D graphics and in the world of videogames) first began working on The Nemesis back in 2018. De Grandi stresses that over the past four years the team has not spent a penny on marketing but focussed all their time, money and energy on building the platform.

What does it take for your financial brand to go beyond the arc?
There are so many interesting paths that financial services and fintech have taken the past decade. How we serve customers across the landscape of products and services has seen a sea of change and the addition of digital experiences as the business model has changed. Yet, when we think about the ways that financial brands can go down the wrong path, the list of lessons is a long one indeed. To avoid some of these pitfalls, it is important to truly understand and appreciate your customer experiences, those journeys that shape the connectivity between brands and the customers and communities they serve.

That time when magic robots helped you get a loan
That time when magic robots helped you get a loan
When was the last time you applied for a loan or some form of credit? Was it a magical experience? Did it take just a few minutes from application to funding? What if robotic process automation could mimic the human element for the more common requirements for lending and what if the majority of these, often tedious, parts of the loan application process could be done simply through a mobile phone? There are many efficiencies still to discover in financial services, and automating more and more of the customer experience can make perfect sense while it frees up real well-trained humans to talk to customers when they need you most. In this episode of One Vision, Bradley chats with Joseariel Gomez Ortigoza, founder of Shastic, a companion application that helps make any process at your financial institution or fintech that much more efficient and customer-centric.

How can more spending lead to more giving?
How can more spending lead to more giving?
When we think about the way we spend money, we might think that the opportunity cost of that spending is what we cannot save or what we cannot invest. But what about the opportunity cost of not giving? Think about how much you have donated to charities or causes throughout your life, whether it was in the form of money or your time. What if every time we spent money, we saved some and simultaneously helped the organizations that take care of people in the most need across our communities? This needs to become standard practice within the financial services ecosystem, because we can make banking better. In this episode of One Vision, Bradley chats with Susan Langer, the CEO of Spave – recent winner of Best of Show at Finovate Spring – as she talks about how her team has built a way to integrate spending and savings activities that help share purpose and value everyday. It’s time to rethink spending and savings and giving – now we can do all three at once.

Nick Vale - on how to rent, loan or borrow NFTs - and why
Nick Vale - on how to rent, loan or borrow NFTs - and why
Nick Vale – ahead of the NFT pack Some ideas make sense – once you hear them, like the infamous luggage on wheels and why did no one think of that before 1972. Others require a bit more imagination such as the touch screen and pinching to change the size of images. If hindsight is 2020 vision, it makes utter sense that these developments took place, but the trick is being the first to have the vision before everyone else. For our example today, enter the reNFT platform which offers the rental infrastructure for the metaverse. Co founder and CEO Nick Vale first came across NFTs in the form of Crypto Kitties. Unlike others who first pooh poohed these loveable digital assets or even those who later saw art with a capital A as the sole preserve of NFTs, that is the provenance feature, Vale saw much more. It probably helped that he came with a gaming background, working in the traditional indie video game development realm. He helped create Total Miner, the first port of Minecraft to Xbox which went to be the number one, best selling indie game on Xbox. Afterwards he worked on Miner Duty, a shooter game using a lot of UGC components, which climbed to the number three best seller position. Tune in to listen to more. Your host is Jillian Godsil

Some companies reinvented themselves very quickly, Michelle McDaid the Senior Director of Engineering at Workhuman
In February 2020 I recorded my last ever face to face podcast with Jason Adams and Michelle McDaid. Shortly afterwards the pandemic hit and remote working became part of our daily lives with the acceleration of the digital workplace. As how we worked has changed I reconnect with Michelle McDaid the Senior Director of Engineering at Workhuman, and talk to her about remote working and more. Michelle, talks about how the pandemic impacted on Workhuman, what she thinks the future workplace will be, if remote and hybrid working has made staff more productive. Michelle also talks about creating more diverse teams, different skillsets, solving problems and mental health.. More about Michelle McDaid: Michelle McDaid is the Senior Director of Engineering at Workhuman, one of the world's fastest-growing integrated Social Recognition and management platform and a keen supporter of women in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM).

When we lose privacy and rights, we lose democracy
When we lose privacy and rights, we lose democracy
Data is central to everything that we do. But as we go about our daily lives, how do we ensure we are protected? It’s not just about what data is being collected and what is being done with it; it’s also about who holds the power to make those decisions. And what guardrails do we have in place to ensure companies are acting ethically? Can we push them to change? In this episode of One Vision, Theo chats with Joe Toscano, author of Automating Humanity, on data privacy and rights. When we don’t have protected communications, we lose democracy and freedom. As Joe said, “Democracy is an active fight.”

Tom Serres, VC, on how to invest
Tom Serres, VC, on how to invest
Many entrepreneurial students start their first company while in college, but few start a company that will go on to be the largest political fundraising platform in the US. By the time Tom Serres came to sell his company, Rally, in 2014 it was powering 70,000 political operations across the US from aspiring senators to dog catcher campaigns. At its heart was a mechanism to raise funds efficiently over the internet and by 2014 it accounted for 50% of all political donations collected online. The experience of running his own company and raising money saw a natural segue into opening an advisory firm, Animal Ventures in 2016 working with Fortune 100 companies. And in 2019 he opened Serres Warburg Investments, a private equity entity, which was to invest in all things Web 3. “I was ten years in Rally but the last three showed me how to scale and fast. Learning from my own company means I can really identify with other founders – I’ve got the tee-shirt.” Tune in to find out more about how Tom invests in Web 3 Your host is Jillian Godsil

Maarten Ectors - on creating an index token that gets invested in such a way to beat the market - From Pollen DeFi
Maarten Ectors - on creating an index token that gets invested in such a way to beat the market - From Pollen DeFi
Maarten Ectors is a man of many parts, mostly disruptive. He joined the Pollen DeFi team in October just after the initial founders put the project together. He reckons it’s all about the money, follow the money. “Take a step back,” Ectors advises. “Ten years ago if you had money it was relatively easy to invest through a broker or asset manager. Then Warren Buffet came along and burst the bubble pointing out that most of the managers never beat the market. So the next opportunity was indexed funds which were expected to go up – continually. Except that is not sustainable so where can money go now? “So, why not create an index token that gets invested in such a way to beat the market. But if the market goes down, then you go short. If the market goes up, you go long. And what if we can make something that the investors pay gas fees to rebalance their assets? And that last part is the key to Pollen.” To find out more, tune into the podcast Your host is Jillian Godsil

Zhanat Makhataeva, PhD candidate in Robotics Engineering at Nazarbayev University School of Engineering and Digital Sciences, on the human memory augmentation app she is developing
A very common problem amongst older people is the development of cognitive disorders. This results in more round the clock care needed which can be very expensive. But it’s not all doom and gloom as there is a solution being developed that will help. Zhanat Makhataeva, PhD candidate in Robotics Engineering at Nazarbayev University School of Engineering and Digital Sciences, has developed an app for digital headsets called ExoMem , an AR-based human memory augmentation system. Zhanat talks about the app, the equipment used with the app, future versions of the app, the freedom users will have, and Microsoft HoloLens. Zhanat also talks about how developing the app came about, how improving technology has helped, battery life, memory, trying to live a normal life, future plans for the project, AI, and her internship with Microsoft in London. More about the app Zhanat is developing: The app works by recognising and remembering objects and their location to aid individuals and mitigate the effects of conditions such as dementia or Alzheimer’s. Zhanat believes that AR head-mounted displays, computing technologies, and AI algorithms can significantly benefit research in assistive systems and human-technology interaction, especially for people affected by cognitive impairments and memory decline. The augmentation of hearing and vision in humans, which can help both healthy people and people with cognitive impairments, is a possible direction for AR and AI research. By restoring the perception and memory functions of people with cognitive impairments, we can improve not only the lives of patients, but also those around them.

Bit.com and Toya Zhang - Building in a Bear Market
Bit.com and Toya Zhang - Building in a Bear Market
Toya Zhang hails from a traditional communications background in Finance, but in 2015, part of her job involved investigating Bitcoin for a client. She went down the rabbit hole and never looked back. “The whole industry is evolving – from ICOs, IDOs to Web3 and NFTs – I am really fascinated by the evolution, and now as CMO at Bit.com, a cryptocurrency exchange specializing in options trading, I am evolving with everyone else.” Zhang joined Bit.com in January 2022 and is very committed and connected to the growth of the exchange. Bit.com was founded in 2020 as a spinoff from Matrixport, a crypto bank established in 2019. Matrixport was valued at $1 billion in 2021, while Bit.com is ranked in the top 3 crypto options exchanges in terms of trading volume. Bit.com is registered in Seychelles with offices in Singapore and Hong Kong. “Bit.com has a solid team. They began at the hard end, if you will – by launching a sophisticated crypto options exchange. It took eight months to go live, but it propelled them into the top of the space.” Two years on, Bit.com has fleshed out its offering from just options trading to adding futures, perpetual futures, spot markets, and several savings products. “We are consolidating this growth and looking to expand further in Europe. Beginning life as we did an options exchange, we also have a lot of institutional traders, many of which are registered with offshore companies.” It is evident from our conversation that Zhang aligns her personal values with that of Bit.com and the care it extends to its customers – from building solid products to ensuring client money is genuinely theirs. And the good news is that Bit.com is hiring despite this bear market. When asked why now, the answer is uncomplicated. “We weren’t aggressive until we were ready. We began with options, futures, and the spot market. Today we have about 50 tokens listed and added yield products. But they are only added once everything was fully bedded in and our UI was fine.” Not that Zhang likes the bear market, but as she says, it’s possible to breathe and take time to think in a bear market. “It’s exciting to have this time to consider what might be coming down the track next. Web 3 – however it is defined – is the next big thing, along with GameFi and the metaverse. We are all building now. “As an exchange, we are at the heart of the cryptocurrency movement. We are deeply rooted in this space, the engine of the industry, if you will. We need to keep on offering the best services, provide liquidity, and continue to manage risk. “It’ll take time, but bear markets provide great building opportunities. I’d say within five years; these innovations will be here.” And where does Bit.com fit into all this? “We are simply a centralized service provider on top of the decentralized digital world.”

Welcome to the curated world of Metropolis
Welcome to the curated world of Metropolis
Curated metaverse platform Metropolis World engages Flare as a key interoperability partner powering seamless movement between different metaverses and blockchains Metropolis World, a soon to launch curated metaverse platform, announces a partnership with Flare, a new blockchain which enables secure decentralized interoperability between chains and metaverses. Flare’s blockchain technology will allow for the seamless movement by users between different metaverse ecosystems and blockchains, such as Decentraland and Sandbox, which is a key aspect of Metropolis’ vision for the metaverse. The Flare partnership means that Metropolis World becomes a one stop destination as it now has a bridge into other metaverses. Metropolis users will be able to move into other worlds easily without borders. Metropolis World differentiates itself from other metaverse platforms due to its design aesthetic: its cities are created digitally by hand and every property is a unique standalone piece of art. Unlike the majority of NFT collections Metropolis is not utilizing generative art to create the actual cities. The real-world ecosystem is already developed as it has formed partnerships with a wide range of high-profile ambassadors from the worlds of music, art, gaming, NFT, crypto and business whom it is calling founding citizens. These include — 3LAU, Bored Elon, Chad Knight, Dillon Francis, Diplo, Fvckrender, Valfre, Meltem Demirors, Outlier Ventures, Steve Aoki. Metropolis’ first metaverse city called Celeste is launching in the fall and over the next 12 months it will drop its avatars and the ecommerce platform. Within 18 months it expects to launch six cities with each property sold as an individual NFT. Hugo Philion, CEO & Co-founder of Flare, said: “Interoperability is a critical challenge, not just for blockchains, but also for metaverses. We share Metropolis’ vision for a seamlessly interconnected metaverse universe, and as their key interoperability partner, we will be implementing decentralized and insured LayerCake bridges to ensure safe transit for all user assets.” Rashid Ajami, Co-Founder of Metropolis World, said: “The backing of Flare enables us to offer users the seamless movement between different metaverse ecosystems — this really sets us apart and reflects our big picture vision of how the metaverse is going to evolve.” Rania Ajami, Co-Founder of Metropolis World, said: “Metropolis will offer a metaverse experience unlike anything else out there. We see huge scope for the platform globally as the melding of digi-physical immersive experiences for our users blends into one life, but not just in our capital cities of the metaverse but on other platforms too thanks to our partnership with Flare.” To listen to a podcast with Rashid and Rania - tune in here.

A fintech founder’ story: For the love of people and love of hope
When we reflect upon who we are and where we are in our career path, who has influenced us the most in our journey, to become the person we are today? In this episode of One Vision, we welcome the return of our co-host Stephanie Foster, as we chat with Dana Wilson, CEO and Founder of CHIP, on wealth management and the importance of empowering others to live their financially authentic lives.  There is no magic bullet — nor a single set of remedies — when it comes to fostering diversity and inclusion. From family endowment, education, employment, access to finance, to representation, and social attitudes, there are many factors that influence both equality of opportunity and equality of outcomes. But if we are intentional about creating space for others at the table, and making sure people are seen and their voices are heard, we can fight for — and effect change — together. We belong here.

James West and Globe Derivative Exchange
James West and Globe Derivative Exchange
James West, CEO Globe Derivative Exchange James West is a man who likes numbers, preferably lots of them. His PhD is in Biostatistics and at one stage he was also an ergodic theory researcher. For reference this is the definition of ergodic mathematics: relating to or denoting systems or processes with the property that, given sufficient time, they include or impinge on all points in a given space and can be represented statistically by a reasonably large selection of points. I rest my case. Although West explains ergodic dynamic systems using doughnuts because doughnuts are more interesting than regular planes as fundamentally there’s a hole in a doughnut. When asked if it mattered if it was cream filled or chocolate covered the answer was no, neither made a difference, although usually the math department preferred chocolate filled. For a time, West was also an entrepreneur in residence which was much more than just about numbers. He was employed by a VC to come up with business ideas in an incubator-like environment with 100 other like minded people. “It was like being in college, only being paid for it,” suggests West.

Mandating the return to office is it the right way forward? Aislinn Mahon, General Manager of Huckletree D2
Mandating the return to office is it the right way forward? Aislinn Mahon, General Manager of Huckletree D2
According to a recent staff memo circulating across social media, Elon Musk recently made his stance on hybrid working clear, demanding the end of remote working for all Tesla employees or else they would face termination. As employees make decisions to return to the office there has been global concern that the gender imbalance will be stretched further.  The permanent switch to more home working following the pandemic will cause an increase in inclusivity issues within the workplace, according to experts, unless employers carefully monitor their new working policies to make sure everyone’s performance is recognised equally regardless of whether they work from the office or not. There is a fear that those who receive more “face time” with management will benefit from more recognition and preferential treatment. Ronan talks to Aislinn Mahon, General Manager of Huckletree D2 about this and more. Aislinn talks about her background, Elon Musk’s stance on hybrid working, the positives of co-working spaces, Zoom meetings, mental health and meditation. Aislinn also talks about the different types of companies based in Huckltree, the help companies can get in co-working spaces, and the best strategy that works for companies. More about Aislinn: Aislinn is expert in new market entry and identifying new opportunities for strategic growth, and helped launch Huckletree in Ireland in 2017. She's also deeply passionate about the practice and teaching of yoga. Superpower: Building inner confidence.

Applying old world laws to new world technologies Victor Timon, Partner at Lewis Silkin
AI technology has opened up ethical concerns about the technology when it comes to privacy, surveillance, bias and discrimination. The £7.5m fine imposed by the U.K. on facial recognition company Clearview AI for breaking the UK’s data protection laws reflects the scale of the problem emerging. The Government’s recent appointment of Dr Patricia Scanlon as the country’s new AI Ambassador will help lead a national conversation on the role of AI in people's lives, emphasising Ireland’s commitment to an ethical approach to the use of the technology. The strong emphasis on deploying an ethical approach in the technology’s application should help prevent mishaps similar to the Clearview AI scandal in the U.K, but how can the public be safeguarded from such practices? Ronan talks to legal AI specialist, Victor Timon, Partner at Lewis Silkin about this and more. More about Victor Timon: Victor Timon is Partner in the London and Dublin offices of the international law firm Lewis Silkin.

The new era of information and misinformation
The new era of information and misinformation
Unfettered data collection coupled with powerful emerging technologies have given rise to a new digital era. With so much data at our fingertips, how do we separate information from misinformation and propaganda, and parse facts from fiction? Just because something is trending, it doesn’t mean it’s real.  In this episode of One Vision, we chat with Alaric Aloor, CEO and Co-Founder of Archonsec, and advisor for MATR Ventures, about the benefits and perils of technology. In a world of fractured conversations, sound argument is becoming a lost art and insanity can be contagious. Unless collectively, we are willing to learn and do what is right to solve the hard problem — with intention — together. But will we?

The confusing world of Tokenomics - made clear in this podcast with Roderick McKinley
The confusing world of Tokenomics - made clear in this podcast with Roderick McKinley
Roderick McKinley studied economics to master’s level motivated to understand what drives economic inequality and environmental mismanagement. After taking his CFA exams he began working with private equity investors to finance renewable energy infrastructure in Chile. An exciting opportunity but it also ate into his personal autonomy and, combined with 20-hour days, resulted in burnout. “So, I decided to use my quantitative skills to set up my own business modelling consultancy instead, which I ran right up to 2020 when my first tokenomic engagement turned up. I had first heard about Bitcoin back in 2013, but dismissed it as a naïve fad, and did not give it serious scrutiny – which was a mistake of course.” McKinley is now a tokenomics expert in crypto coming full circle around to cryptocurrency and the irony is not lost on him. He committed to this career pivot after realizing that the fundamental view of economics is similar across traditional and cryptocurrency domains. [R1] [JG2] McKinley explains this in terms of his view of economics as the study of human behaviour involving scarce resources, and the effects these behaviours have on those resources Tune in to listen to Roderick explain the dark arts of Tokenomics.

Project New Era – Why the Government needs the Private Sector to test Digital Currencies
Project New Era – Why the Government needs the Private Sector to test Digital Currencies
With Paul Sisnett, CEO of SMD Group, and Kunal Jhanji, Partner & MD at Boston Consulting Group Project New Era is a privately-led, cross-industry initiative that will evaluate a future digital currency ecosystem in the UK that could include stablecoins and a Central Bank Digital Currency (CBDC). Differing from other initiatives which seek to promote policy theories for digital currencies, Project New Era is about testing them in practice through a private sector pilot, using a live Digital Sterling (‘dSterling’) asset. The pilot, set to launch in September, will be run by the private consortium but aims to engage with The Bank of England, the Financial Conduct Authority and the Payments Systems Regulator to update them around the progress and learnings in order to help them make informed decisions on implementing a CBDC in the future. These authorities are not, however, directly involved in the pilot itself. Tune in to hear more - your host is Jillian Godsil

What you need to know about diabetes, John Simpson interviewed by Sangeeta Waldron
What you need to know about diabetes, John Simpson interviewed by Sangeeta Waldron
John Simpson Talks About Neuropad®: A Game-changer For People Living With Diabetes In this episode of the Irish Tech News podcast, I am joined by John Simpson, CEO of Neuropad®, a biotech company, which is a game-changer for the early detection of diabetic foot syndrome, a condition which can lead to serious complications such as foot ulceration and amputation. Feet are important, especially if you have diabetes, because with diabetes, it means you’re much more likely to develop problems with your feet – problems that could end up as amputations. But most amputations can be prevented. If you take good care of your feet and check them regularly, you can reduce your risk of developing foot problems, and this is how Neuropad is changing things. It is a pain-free, ten-minute patch test, which can be done by you at home or with your carer or doctor. This simple patch test has been recommended by the National Advisory Panel for Care Home Diabetes in its new national guidance for care home operators and their staff. In this timely podcast, we discuss why National Diabetes Week, which took place between 13 to 19 June was a tumbleweed moment with the UK media; how the global pandemic has severely impacted people living with diabetes; and about the unnecessary foot/leg amputations that are currently happening, can be avoided with better care. Alarmingly, 30 percent of people with diabetes are unaware that foot complications are common and serious if detected late. Another sobering statistic is that the five-year mortality post amputation is worse than most common cancers and much higher than breast cancer. John shares his in-depth knowledge about diabetes and talks about these staggering statistics and how foot complications are the most feared of all the complications of diabetes. This podcast conversation with John Simpson is a real eye-opener and shines a light on the things that we take for granted.

How communities self-organize in web3 and cryptocurrency ecosystems, Dr. Andrea Baronchelli
How communities self-organize in web3 and cryptocurrency ecosystems, Dr. Andrea Baronchelli
Ian MacRae talks to Dr. Andrea Baronchelli about how communities self-organize around cryptocurrencies and web3 ecosystems, and what we can learn about network effects and resilience from these communities.  How communities self-organize in web3 and cryptocurrency ecosystems What is self-organization and how does that happen in a decentralized system? How is it different from organizing in physical spaces? Web3 was initially designed for peer-to-peer transactions, so how do larger networks form out of peer-to-peer transactions? After they form are these networks more static or dynamic? Some communities have emerged out of black markets, and these systems tend to be extraordinarily resilient, even under constant threat. What can we learn from how they’ve evolved, and are there any lessons we can apply to making our own communities, businesses, or society more resilient? Are self-organizing systems possible outside of web3 and decentralized environments? What is needed to make them possible and effective at large scales? How do web3 and cryptocurrencies currently overlap with our society and economy, and how are they likely to impact us in the future? Dr. Andrea Baronchelli is Associate Professor in Mathematics at City University of London and Token Economy theme lead at The Alan Turing Institute. He researches how we shape, and are shaped by, the socio-technical systems we inhabit using data science, mathematical modelling, and lab experiments with human subjects. His work has appeared in a wide range of top scientific journals (including Science, PNAS and Nature Human Behaviour) and has been extensively covered by the media. He was warded the 2019 “Young Scientist Award for Socio and Econophysics” of the German Physical Society. Find him on Twitter at: https://twitter.com/a_baronca Ian MacRae is an award-winning author, psychologist and psychometrician, He has written six books about workplace psychology including High Potential: How to Spot, Manage and Develop Talented People at Work, and his latest book is Dark Social: Understanding the darker side of work, personality and social media.

How do algorithms work on digital communication platforms? Aaron Brace explains more to Ian MacRae
Ian MacRae talks to Dr. Aaron Brace about how algorithms shape our online relationships and interactions, with a focus on the influence of algorithms in the world of online dating. How do algorithms work on digital communication platforms?  What is their purpose, how do they filter social interactions and prioritize certain types over others?  What kind of messages tend to get through? How do algorithms encourage certain behaviours, emotions, presentation styles? Are algorithms on dating apps essentially the same? Do they encourage different behaviours or have any effect at all? Do we even know what the algorithms in dating apps are doing? None of them are open source... so do we really know what they're doing, or if they're any good? How and why are online dating apps different from other ways of meeting people for romantic or sexual relationships? Can we really compare?  And what long-term effects do the algorithms in dating apps have on our relationships and our society. Do we even know…?   Dr. Aaron Brace is the Co-Founder of ad-tech start-up Tack Tech, the first platform of its kind to enable advertisers to automate AI-driven audience testing and deploy ads across multiple ad networks simultaneously.

Spark World is billed as a win win platform - NFTs with the owners doxed in broad daylight
James Verheul likes to keep things interesting. He studied a triple major at the University of Cape Town in economics, finance and environmental finance. After college he entered into traditional finance working alongside wealth professionals, but his love of interesting things pulled him into crypto back in 2013. What interested him was Web 3, although it had not been named that as yet. Instinctively, he knew that change was happening in this space. “It’s definitely the hottest buzz word now, but even back in 2013 I knew I had slipped into the interesting section of the finance market.” Verheul defines Web 1 as read only, Web 2 as read and write, but Web 3 as read, write and own. “Going from centralised finance which is so laborious to decentralised finance is very exciting. And to be here at the beginning is off the charts.” Verheul was not only excited to be part of Web 3, but he also wanted to be part of the creation of Web 3. To that end he teamed up with Joly Horsfal to co-found Spark World. For both founders, NFTs are seen as core to DeFi. Tune in to hear more... Your host is Jillian Godsil

An inconvenient truth about ESG
According to a recent survey by the CFA Institute, 85% of investment managers across countries are increasingly incorporating ESG (Environmental, Social, and Governance) criteria into investment decisions. While opportunities abound in this fast-growing sector, what gets measured and how it’s measured can quickly grow in complexity. And are we focusing too much on what investors care about, and missing the broader picture of the impact on our planet and its people?  In this episode of One Vision, Theo chats with Alexandria Fisher, Sustainable Finance Manager of Global Risk Institute on social responsibility, ESG standards, and regulations. While perfection may not exist, we need to start somewhere.

What are bridges in Blockchain and how do they work?
What are bridges in Blockchain and how do they work?
A conversation with Glitter Finance co founder David Dobrovitsky on bridges in blockchain - what are they, how do they work, what can be the problems?  Benefits of bridges Interoperability – Cross-chains solve the problem of interoperability within the blockchain ecosystem, and users can transfer assets to other blockchains without sacrificing the advantages of the host network. Cross-chain collateral – This feature enables DeFi users to transfer assets from a blockchain with value but little decentralized applications (such as Bitcoin) to another blockchain with a developed ecosystem (like Ethereum, Cardano or others). Scalability – Blockchain bridges designed to handle high transaction volumes ensure greater scalability. The scalability makes it possible for DeFi developers to deploy their applications and users to enjoy such services without giving up the original blockchain’s liquidity and network effect. Efficiency – DeFi users can make and receive micro-transfers faster with cross-chain bridges without paying high transaction fees. This is especially important for the blockchain gaming and ecommerce experience. To learn more, tune into this episode. Your host is Jillian Godsil

Data plays a huge role in our daily activities. But does technology truly make our lives better?
It is often said, digital technologies are driving transformative change in our society. But at what cost? As consumers, do we truly understand how information is being collected and used, and the associated risks and implications? Can we truly trust companies enough to just ‘click and ignore’? In this episode of One Vision, Theo and Barb Maclean chat with Hessie Jones, Venture Partner at MATR Ventures on venture capital model, community building, and tech ethics. From data rights to privacy and security, there is still a lot of work to be done. Hessie’s advice: Ethics needs to become a standard. And remember, just because you can — doesn’t mean you should.

I found computers to be a huge enabler, Kyran O’Mahoney NCBI Chief Technology Officer
Something that is not mentioned enough is accessibility and thankfully technology has proven to be an enabler and lifeline to many, especially for people who are blind or vision impaired. Using technology has unlocked so much opportunities for them in their daily lives but also in education & employment. There is now less of a dependence on assistive technology as the strides in mainstream technology, devices, software and apps in embedding accessibility features has been impressive in recent years. The NCBI is heavily involved in making accessibility a part of everyday life, and Ronan talks to Kyran O’Mahoney NCBI Chief Technology Officer about this and more. Kyran talks about what NCBI does, his role with NCBI, accessibility is so important, accessibility tips for users of mobile phones and computers and where he sees the future of accessibility heading. More about NCBI: They have been around for more than 90 years and they want people who are blind and vision-impaired to have the same opportunities, rights and choices as others to fully participate in society. They also want to enable people who are blind and vision impaired to overcome the barriers that impede their independence and participation in society. NCBI’s core values give effect to their vision and permeate their mission and inform all of their actions to ensure that they achieve the highest standards in everything they do.

How Tapping into Our Creativity and Memories can Eradicate Toxic Happiness and Improve Mental Health
How Tapping into Our Creativity and Memories can Eradicate Toxic Happiness and Improve Mental Health
Jonathan Dickson About the artist Born in Dublin, Jonathan is a Kildare based visual artist. After graduating from the National College of Art and Design in 1991 he went on to lead a successful career as a multi-award winning illustrator and designer. During 2006 he dedicated himself to further artistic development outside the design industry. Positive reaction to work created subsequently led him to make the decision to leave this career behind and commit full time to painting. Since then he has taken part in numerous solo and group exhibitions. His work is held in public, corporate and private collections in Ireland, Europe and the USA. He has also been the recipient of a number of public, corporate and private commissions. Artist statement I paint and document what I experience around me (the visceral as much as the visual) as acutely as I can. Certain places and objects I experience resonate and won’t let me go until I work through them, sometimes I know why during the process and sometimes the obsession is revealed afterwards. I’m ever increasingly aware that hindsight reveals far more about my work than anything I could ever conceive up front and I’m happy to allow this to continue (for now). Allied to this I have a deep curiosity about the nature of perception and memory (both visual and conceptual) and how it affects the subjects that call to me.

Phil Ingram, CEO of Lepricon This is the question I pose to the new CEO of Lepricon Phil Ingram, can blockchain and gaming exist in the same space? Lepricon is celebrating its first birthday and Ingram takes on the CEO mantle with a hill to climb. “We’ve achieved a lot in the first year but now we need to tackle the elephant in the room – if gaming is going to be the first killer to on ramp people for mass adoption, then we have to make blockchain gaming more like video gaming,” says Ingram. “Blockchain is all about owning assets and that they can’t be taken away from you unless you leave your private keys at a bus stop. This is the point that enables a subtle shift from publisher first economies to player first.” Ingram makes a distinction between Play2Earn (P2E) and blockchain gaming.

It’s not the same according to him. “P2E risks focusing on grinding in video gaming – the place where you need to kill multiple monsters or repeat actions to move up to the next level. It’s very different and no one plays video games just to grind.” But the fact that rewards or assets earned or won in the game actually belong to the player is what is moving blockchain gaming in the right direction. “The problem is that blockchain is dictating the gaming and not the other way around. Indeed, many blockchain games seem to be glorified ways to sell NFTs. And what about those limited NFT runs – how does the 10,001st player get to play?” Your host is Jillian Godsil, award winning journalist, broadcaster and author

Rolling with the Punches: How JUSTTIP is transforming the service sector for tipped employees in Ireland
Rolling with the Punches: How JUSTTIP is transforming the service sector for tipped employees in Ireland
James Fahy, with his co-founder, Ciara Walsh are the brains behind the most flexible and robust cashless tip payment service on the market. As the Covid pandemic was at its height, James had noticed that cash was literally disappearing from sight as the whole world embraced digital and mobile based payment systems. As a result, when businesses finally started to reopen, thousands of service and hospitality staff saw their income drastically reduced because no one had any cash to tip. In addition, the customers that added a tip to the bill often did not know if their server got the tip. James realised that something had to be done and JUSTTIP™ was born in July 2021 Since then, James and Ciara have successfully on boarded over 160 locations across Ireland and built an executive management team brimming with talent and experience. But that was just the start; Justtip is now live in London and Las Vegas.

We are giving them an active pipeline, Martin Fitzgerald, CEO and Co-founder of Kwayga
Covid-19 has focused businesses more and more on their supply chains. Covid-19 has also made trade fairs and face to face meetings more or less a thing of the past. On top of that the Russian invasion of Ukraine has disrupted supplies of certain products such as sunflower oil. This has resulted in businesses seeking new solutions to help buyers diversify their suppliers, and suppliers to diversify their markets. Kwayga, an Irish start-up from Cork has identified an opportunity to bring better security to the global food supply chain by matching food buyers and suppliers in a trustworthy way. Ronan talks to Martin Fitzgerald, CEO and Co-founder of Kwayga about this and more. Martin talks about his background, what Kwayga does, dealing with pandemic and Brexit, their future plans, dealing with different languages and cultures. More about Kwayga: Kwayga is a B2B matching platform for buyers and suppliers in the food and beverage sector designed around trust and security. Using the platform buyers and suppliers discover, verify, match, connect, communicate in any language and trade. Finding new, good quality national and international suppliers or buyers, and being able to establish trust is a huge challenge that takes too much time and costs too much money and resources, especially for mid-sized companies. If a business is great at what it does, it should be easy for it to establish trust and securely trade with other businesses anywhere, in any language, at any time. Empowering buyers and suppliers to do this is Kwayga's mission.

Power of possibility: Investing in the future of work
Much has been written about the Great Resignation where people have left their jobs in search of more meaningful work and personal fulfillment. We are at a critical juncture in history; how we work, where we work, and when we work, are all being redefined.

In this episode of One Vision, Theo, along with guest co-host, Danielle Guzman, chat with Diana Wu David, Future of Work strategist and author of Future Proof, on finding purpose and our place in the future.

We also have some light-hearted banter about ‘lentils and sandal’ and where he wears his underpants…intrigued, well you will have to tune in! At the end I had to ask Dale, that burning question, of what’s next for him, and his answer might surprise you and give you that little bit of hope for a better tomorrow. On 29 April, Dale is one of the speakers, at the GEI 14 conference in London, which is a partnership with not-for-profit sustainability specialists A Greener Festival and the International Live Music Conference, the world’s leading platform for the touring and festival sectors. Dale will be on a panel discussion, looking at the energy and transport sectors that will play a key role in the fight against the climate crisis, which will impact live music and events significantly in coming years.

Artificial intelligence is embedded in almost every aspect of our lives, from financial services to healthcare, retail, and beyond, and will play an increasingly important role in everything we do and what we create.

Insights into the EU Digital Markets Act with Amandine Le Pape founder of Element
Insights into the EU Digital Markets Act with Amandine Le Pape founder of Element
Two weeks ago the EU parliament and Council negotiators agreed new EU rules to limit the market power of big online platforms. The Digital Markets Act will ban certain practices used by large platforms acting as “gatekeepers” and enable the Commission to carry out market investigations and sanction non-compliant behaviour. Before the  Digital Markets Act was agreed I spoke to Amandine Le Pape founder of British tech start-up, Element about it. Amandine talks about her concerns on the EU  Digital Markets Act and why she thinks enforcing interoperability between apps through Open APIs. Essentially allowing Big Tech to control the process, which will build weak solutions to keep regulators at bay. More about the Digital Markets Act: EU lawmakers agreed that the largest messaging services (such as Whatsapp, Facebook Messenger or iMessage) will have to open up and interoperate with smaller messaging platforms, if they so request. Users of small or big platforms would then be able to exchange messages, send files or make video calls across messaging apps, thus giving them more choice. As regards interoperability obligation for social networks, co-legislators agreed that such interoperability provisions will be assessed in the future. Parliament also ensured that combining personal data for targeted advertising will only be allowed with explicit consent to the gatekeeper. They also managed to include a requirement to allow users to freely choose their browser, virtual assistants or search engines. If a gatekeeper does not comply with the rules, the Commission can impose fines of up to 10% of its total worldwide turnover in the preceding financial year, and 20% in case of repeated infringements. In case of systematic infringements, the Commission may ban them from acquiring other companies for a certain time.

Betting on people: Bridging the gap between fintech and innovation
A significant amount of money has been invested in FinTech in the past decade; according to CFTE, the FinTech sector is now equivalent to 38% of the banking sector in terms of market capitalization. If FinTech was considered a city, it would rank 3rd as an employer in financial services, after New York and London. In a world where we are playing buzzword bingo on a seemingly daily basis, how do we stay on top of the real innovation trends in this fast developing world? And how can we facilitate pathways to these new opportunities and make sure that no one is left behind? As the saying goes, talent is equally distributed; opportunities are not.  In this episode of One Vision, Theo chats with Tram Anh Nguyen, co-founder of CFTE, whose mission is to leverage the power of education to create a more inclusive and welcoming new world of financial services. That’s certainly a purpose we can all get behind.

Government remote working regulations and Ireland Inc, Andrew Lynch the Co-founder and COO of Huckletree
Government remote working regulations and Ireland Inc, Andrew Lynch the Co-founder and COO of Huckletree
Late last year I interviewed Andrew Lynch the Co-founder and COO of Huckletree, and since then a lot has happened. Businesses are opening up again and the hybrid working model has been embraced as the government introduced new remote working regulations and got rid of all the Covid restrictions they had in place. As we get back to some form of normality in the workplace what can we expect. I talk to Andrew about this and more. Andrew talks to me about the new government remote working regulations, pandemic related issues, job enjoyment, tech predictions for the year, startup funding and sustainability. More about Andrew Lynch: Andrew moved back from the UK last year, where he did a master’s degree in real-estate investment, before working in private equity and then co-founding Huckletree. During that time Huckletree has opened 5 co-working spaces in the UK and one in Ireland. Andrew has seen companies join Huckletree Ireland as start-ups and grow and expand and, as they take on investment, grow very quickly to 30 or 40 people. The Dublin space brings its global member count to 2,000 people.

As the saying goes, “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough” — have you ever wondered what stops people in their tracks, and how we can overcome obstacles in our lives? As it turns out, you can use the power of the mind to rewire your brain and achieve the extraordinary. In this episode of One Vision, Theo chats with Frederique Murphy, author of “Lead Beyond the Edge: The bold path to extraordinary results” about her book and her personal transformation journey. As Frederique noted, an engaged brain learns better, retains better, and performs better. We hope you too can be inspired to step out of your comfort zone and take the leap to the edge and beyond.

Helping Fund the Ukraine, with Crypto Worms, Andrii Vyviurka
Helping Fund the Ukraine, with Crypto Worms, Andrii Vyviurka
Hi I am from Ukraine, I am 25 years old. I work as an IT specialist, I have my own web development team, designers, programmers and other specialists. Now I'm in my apartment, but we sounded sirens all night and we were sitting in bomb shelters, today the Russians dropped bombs on our city again, several dozen people were injured and several died, people are buried in the backyards of their homes, it's very awful in relation to ordinary civilians. You can probably see this in the news. Yesterday in Irpin near Kyiv, terrorists killed a journalist from the United States who worked and showed the truth to the New York Times. Two more of his comrades were injured and are currently in hospital in Kyiv.  Crypto worms is my own NFT project that I started creating six months ago. Most of the NFT from it was sold in the beginning and now people are just trading it. The game itself is for 2 people who play in battle with each other with different skills and weapons (the game is still under development.) These are people who trade NFT for resale and people who want to wait for the release of a game where they can reproduce their NFT to treat others, receive crypto tokens worms and health elixirs. Crypto game is not just a game, you can play it and earn more. 5. pUtin is a small man who is not friendly with the head and creates big problems for the whole world, Ukraine suffers the most in this confrontational people are losing their homes. The city of Mariupol, where 500,000 people lived, has been wiped off the face of the earth. It is scary to look at it. Now everyone is helping the country as best they can, some are volunteering to prepare food for soldiers and refugees, some are defending our land and their city with a machine gun. I, in turn, joined the funds and decided to make a charity project for people who lost their homes and to support our army, our army is many times smaller than the Russian, but our people are much smarter. Pictures for the NFT project are ready now I am working with NFT crypto markets where we will be added.  The project already has the name Strong Ukraine. Each picture of the project is unique and reflects the strength of spirit of the people. The NFT theme has been popular for a year now. I also successfully trade various collections and help with creation. Now there are a lot of videos on YouTube to create a collection in different languages, everyone can understand this. Or write to me if you want to trade or create your own collections, I can help if I am interested in the project. I have 50 unique pictures and the time provided is no longer needed as my collection is created in one style and other creators will find it difficult to understand my style. Now there is a greater need for advertising the project on a large scale not only in Ukraine but around the world. We now buy a lot of helmets and body armor, as well as night vision devices and thermal imagers. All this is needed. Now our volunteers bring us money, we buy it with money donated by people and add our own when needed.  To say what you can help us need to understand what country you are from and how you can help. It is a financial aid whether you can buy the things we need and transfer or accept women with children. Sites such as solsea and solanart help in the quick verification procedure, and I will ask them to post on the main page and on social networks as much as possible. The Crypto worms project has nothing to do with the Strong Ukraine charity project, these are different projects. Soon we will win over and return our territories, and all the partners who supported us and the people who helped financially and in all other ways will celebrate our common victory. Glory to Ukraine!

We don’t have a pipeline problem; we have a listening problem
How well are women and communities of color being represented in financial services? And how many brilliant ideas don’t get the opportunities they deserve because we are not listening to all the voices? Many people assume that we have a pipeline problem, that there are no women or prominent female leaders in financial services. But that cannot be further from the truth. We don’t have a pipeline problem; rather, we have a listening problem.  In this episode of One Vision, Theo chats with Sonya Dreizler and Liv Gagnon, founders of Choir, who are on a mission to change whom the finance industry listens to. You can’t be what you can’t see. Together, we can help change the status quo, one conference at a time.

See more on the Safe Harbour for Ukraine website here and on the gofundme page here.bour for Ukraine website here and on the gofundme page here. Safe Harbour for Ukraine A group of friends in Ireland are sending a bus filled with essential supplies to the Polish/Ukraine border and are returning with 40 women and children displaced by war. The goal is to provide accommodation and integration support for our guests for as long as is necessary. They will be treated with dignity and respect. This is a community based project with support from Cronin’s Coaches, Dennehy Commercials, and the enormous goodwill of the Irish people. The bus is leaving on St Patrick’s Day and will return approximately five days later. We are relying 100% on the goodwill of people in Ireland to make this happen. If you can help, especially by providing shelter in your home we’d love to hear from you. If you can’t provide shelter we have a list of urgently needed supplies below. In the coming days we will launch a GoFundMe page so you can make a cash donation. Our GoFundMe page is here. OFFERING ACCOMMODATION Finding suitable accommodation for our guests is the most challenging part. Your help would be greatly appreciated. You might have a spare bedroom you can offer, or even an entire property that’s not fully used. Right now we’re looking for properties in Cork and Limerick city, preferably within walking distance of shops and a bus route. It’s a big thing to offer a room in your home. Most of our guests do not have fluent, or even any, English. They’ve all been through a horrific experience. None of us know how long this war will go on for but we would ask that if you are making a commitment it is for at least three months. If you feel you could help, please fill out the form by clicking here DONATING ESSENTIAL SUPPLIES Refugees arriving at the Polish/Ukrainian border are tired, hungry and many are sick. We are providing supplies to those who have managed to cross the border and make it safely into Poland. If you can help we would greatly appreciate it.

The Sandbox - not an overnight success but right place right time
The Sandbox - not an overnight success but right place right time
There are many metaverses in Web3 with more springing up overnight. Some bright spark recently called the metaverse just space on someone’s computer (or more correctly computers) but on February 15, JP Morgan issued a report on metaverses which concluded by saying that the metaverse will most likely infiltrate every sector in some way in the coming years, with the market opportunity estimated at $1 trillion in yearly revenues. It’s a bit loose on specifics but the report leaned much more heavily into the hype than reality (from the title of the report). Someone who knows first-hand the opportunities involved in the metaverse, before it was even given that common term, is Sebastien Borget, co-founder of Sandbox, arguably one of the most successful metaverses and certainly leading the pack in this increasingly crowded field.

S.O.S. WAR IN UKRAINE, Kiev needs help, Victor Gry
S.O.S. WAR IN UKRAINE, Kiev needs help, Victor Gry
Jamil talks with Victor Gry, from Kiev to understand what is happening on the ground there. See more on their YouTube channel https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WY8sDvZdWEA What is your background? Is it a logical background for what you have been doing up until now? Hi Jamil Thank you for the opportunity to communicate with you. Russia started a war against the civilian population of Ukraine. At the moment, hostilities on the side of Russia continue for the seventh day. And my experience as a journalist tells me about the need to tell what is happening in my country to the citizens of Europe. Russia attacked Ukraine on February 24 at 5:00 am, when the civilian population was sleeping, unaware of Putin's terrible plans. Of course, today, the second of March, the key to victory is the united actions of Ukrainians in the struggle for their freedom. It is understandable and pleasant that we receive support from the European Union and the understanding that Ukraine can become a full-fledged member of the community. Ukrainians proved their masculinity, unbreakable temper and will to win not by word but by deed. Your communication tower was struck late last night. What’s the current state of affairs where you are in Kyiv? Ukraine is being invaded throughout the country. You probably know that the President of Belarus, Lukashenko, adopted a number of amendments to the constitution of Belarus in an emergency referendum, which now makes it possible to place nuclear weapons on the territory of the country. Two dictators, Putin and Lukashenko, should be brought before the tribunal, the court in The Hague intends to investigate the crimes of the Russian army in Ukraine. Their actions are a direct threat today not only to Ukraine, but also to Europe. You can observe the rhetoric of some of the leaders of the Kremlin towards Europe. From Belarus, fighter jets are flying towards us, bombing not only military bases, but also civilians, who are forced to hide in the basements of their houses from bomb attacks. One of these attacks was intended to leave the country without television, one rocket was aimed at destroying the TV tower in Kyiv, and the second rocket bombed the Babi Yar Holocaust memorial complex. Now the connection is established, the blow was inflicted on the building of the control room near the TV tower. The building where people worked. What is happening in Ukraine, you can see directly broadcasts on YouTube channels. It is pleasant to realize that volunteers are coming to Ukraine from 16 countries of the world who are ready to fight shoulder to shoulder with the Ukrainian people against the aggressor. Their total number has already exceeded 1000 people. You organized a volunteer organization. What is your organization doing right now? Fighting? Mobilizing people? How’s it going? Volunteer organizations work in Kiev, and my son is organizing in one of them. As a journalist, I keep in touch with them. All forces have been gathered to fight to prevent the capture of the Capital. The territorial defense, created from the men of Kyiv, is designed to prevent looting in the city during the curfew. A very active mobilization of people, the civilian population helps the military and local activists from the territorial defense in cooking, there are volunteer centers for cooking and providing food. We need help to purchase and provide food, essential goods to everyone who is now on the defensive and in the mobile volunteer groups in Kyiv. my mob Viber WhatsApp +38 050 831 24 02 email [email protected]

Come for the content; stay for the community
What makes a community? And what comes to mind when you see the word, community? A common bond, perhaps — around our mutual love for technology, and a conviction to bring inclusive finance to more in our society. Or perhaps a love of music, craft beer, and human connection. In this episode of One Vision, Theo chats with Lisa Moyle, Chief Strategy Officer and Co-founder VC Innovations / Fintech Talents on the fintech community, and the trends we expect to see in what’s shaping up to be a very busy 2022 in the financial services industry and beyond. There is never a dull moment in the land of fintech.

Unbank the world with Alex Mashinsky
Unbank the world with Alex Mashinsky
Alex Mashinsky, the serial US entrepreneur well known for installing broadband on the US subway, once famously declared Bitcoin the slowest database on the planet. It wasn’t until he understood it solved the issue of the digital double spend, that he got interested and when Mashinsky gets interested, he moves fast. The result is a Celsius Network, a crypto platform that has grown 20x in one year. Coupled with his interest in crypto was a singular dislike of how the banking system served its customers, or rather it didn’t. “I’m not alone in this opinion,” he says. “There was a recent survey where people said they’d rather visit the dentist than go sit with their bankers. We all have this visceral reaction.” Right now the banking system is particularly broken. As he points out, people work hard, get paid a salary, lose half it in taxes and then people can’t earn any interest on their remaining money. Indeed in this zero/negative interest climate, their money is devalued on top of which they get charged all sorts of bank and credit card fees. “The system is rigged. For most unaccredited investors you cannot participate in different investments, and you are excluded from value creation. That’s what we set up to change in Celsius. We are the opposite of Wall Street – where insiders get to call retail investors the plankton because they feed on them.

Why Waivlength can transform Social Networking, Caolan Ward, CMO and Head of Community
Why Waivlength can transform Social Networking, Caolan Ward, CMO and Head of Community
Caolán is CMO and Head of Community at Waivlength, an Irish startup creating a decentralised social media platform releasing later this year. While still studying Marketing, Innovation & Technology in DCU, he has previous startup experience with Merlin Mask - a project designing a better, cheaper, more sustainable face mask during the COVID-19 pandemic which placed in the top 5 out of 1000 entrants in the XPRIZE Next-Gen Mask Competition. Currently, Caolán is managing the current Waivlength community, all social outreach, and wider strategy surrounding their equity fundraise and Beta sign-up. Technology to Transform Social Networking Through seamless blockchain and cryptocurrency integration, Waivlength adds many features which set it apart from current mainstream channels. There’s a lot of buzz around the Web 3.0 movement and the changes it will bring to the industry, but few people actually know why it began and what it will bring. To understand this, let’s take a look back at its predecessors - Web 1.0 and 2.0. Web 1.0 or ‘World Wide Web’ as it was known, was just a set of static websites with lots of information and no interactive content. Slow dial-up connections for chat rooms and MSN messenger, AltaVista and Ask Jeeves. Then came 2.0. Faster internet speeds paved the way for interactive content. The web wasn’t about observing anymore, it was about participating. New platforms provided users with faster, more reliable, and feature-rich services. The global sharing of information spawned the age of ‘Social Media’. Youtube, Wikipedia, Twitter and Facebook gave voices to the voiceless and a means for like-minded communities to thrive. With the vast increase in internet users and volume of data floating around, big digital corporations soon realized how valuable of an asset personal information is. So began the mass stockpiling of data in centralized servers, with Amazon, Facebook and Twitter the biggest custodians. People sacrificed privacy for the convenience of these services; whether they knew it or not, their identities, browsing habits, searches and online shopping information was sold to the highest bidder. While the Web 2.0 democratized many power structures and created new opportunities, the economic engine is largely privatized and monopolized. Almost all online services are hosted on hardware owned by the “big three” cloud providers, which consist of Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, and Google. Facebook now boasts 2.9 billion users worldwide. Uber and AirBnB have created private networks for public infrastructure which they dominate. The Web 3.0 is the antithesis of this, it’s about multiple profit centers sharing value across an open network. The primary purpose of the Web 3.0 movement isn’t focused on expanding the functionality of the internet. Instead, Web 3.0 is focused on restructuring the way in which the internet is accessed and interacted with. We now have the development of what is described as a human-centred internet.

Already one million trees have been planted, Padraig Power refurbed Market Managing Lead for Ireland
Refurbished devices such as smartphones are becoming more popular for various reasons. These include buying a smartphone that is as good as new, less CO2 is generated and the money you can save when buying a refurbished smartphone. Ronan talks to Padraig Power, refurbed Market Managing Lead for Ireland about this and more. Padraig talks about his background, what refurbed does, refurbed long term goal, their average customer age, and their biggest selling smartphone last year. Padraig also talks about what’s important to phone users, and where they plant their trees. More about refurbed: Refurbed launched in Ireland in March 2021 and the company has already managed to get a refurbished device into 1% of Irish households. The company’s long-term vision is to get at least one refurbished device into every household in Ireland. Each device undergoes a rigorous 40-step refurbishment process to ensure products are brand new when the customer receives them and refurbed offers a wide range of products from household brands such as Apple, Microsoft, Sony, and Samsung just to name a few. In addition to generating 70% less CO2 compared to the manufacturing of a new device, for every product sold the company plants a tree to offset carbon emissions created during the refurbishing process. On that point, since launching in Ireland, Irish consumers have managed to help plant 20,000 trees.

Can incentivized savings be the new future for fintech?
There is no lack of Buy Now, Pay Later news in fintech, with hundreds of BNPL startups around the world vying for a piece of the pie. The trend has also attracted the attention of established giants, from Citi, J.P. Morgan Chase, and American Express, to Apple, PayPal, and Amazon, all competing for customers who want the ability to spread payments over time. Even the B2B space is catching on, with ACI Worldwide launching a new product for merchants to enable them to offer customers payment options with more than 70 BNPL lenders. While paying in installment isn’t new, the rapid rise in popularity of BNPL and easy access to credit has sparked concerns that it will encourage excessive consumerism and debt.

It's all about the DAO - interview with Jordan Gray of NEAR Foundation
Everything you wanted to know about DAOs but were afraid to ask ... Jillian Godsil interviews Jordan Gray from NEAR Another really crucial part of the community aspect to Web3 are DAOs or Decentralised Autonomous Organisations. “I like to break DAOs to their constituent parts,” says Gray. “Decentralised can mean the people are geographically disbursed or indeed the work is. There is not one person at the top telling everyone what to do – the work is collaborative or like a co-op.” When it comes to the autonomous portion, this is akin to the royalty split mentioned before at Codame. “Even decision making can be automated thereby eliminating boring or repetitive tasks. And unlike companies like Uber or Lift where automation is key to the success of the company, the rewards are spread evenly amongst the participants.” Tune in to hear more.

Fighting Climate Change with Technology
Fighting Climate Change with Technology
Miroslav Polzer is convinced that he is destined to play an important role in mastering the global climate crisis. His main vehicle is the International Association of the Advancement of Innovative Approaches to Global Challenges or IAAI for short. This organisation is accredited to the United Nations through the Economic and Social Council, the Department for global communications, the UN climate change process, UNFCC and the Green Climate Fund, which is the biggest international public climate finance mechanism of the UN system. The message of IAAI is big because the global challenges are big and as Polzer explains: “We are already partially in crisis mode and these global challenges affect everyone, hence the need to respond in a global manner.” Polzer argues that the world needs systemic solutions - we need to create an institutional framework, along with economic and societal frameworks. “The problems that we see don’t stop at national borders and the solutions rely on everyone taking action, right down to individual grocery shopping and choices. As a result, we are building an ecosystem on blockchain to capture our activities. We want to build on culture, technology and organisational innovation to get everyone engaged and empowered to take meaningful and rewarding action for the local and global public good, aligned with the goals and programs of the United Nations’ system.” Polzer is passionate about the UN. He sees it as the only player which has a true global mandate and he is actively building a United Citizens Organisation for Action for Climate Empowerment, based on the blockchain.
