    Using Blockchain to achieve Global Social Impact, Samantha Ouyang

    Using Blockchain to achieve Global Social Impact, Samantha Ouyang

    The Power that Improvements on Supply Chains using Blockchain has on Global Social Impact, with Samantha Ouyang and TKS

    This is part 2 of a 4 part continuing series on the Knowledge Society Samantha Ouyang, TKS Activator

    Samantha is a 17 y/o TKS Activator who has been working in blockchain research and development for the past 18 months, taking special interest in the social impact of blockchain. She first started off by researching cryptography, the technical workings behind blockchain, and current limitations, publishing her own articles and videos explaining technical components and reviewing interesting applications. She then moved into blockchain development after teaching herself Solidity, building her own decentralized applications (dApps) and other blockchain-related projects to tackle global issues. This included dApps and frameworks to secure property rights in developing countries, prevent cyberattacks on nuclear power plants, render the pet industry more transparent, combat bias in AI, and reduce blood donation expiry, winning hackathons and other competitions that allowed her to present her ideas to companies such as S&P Global. Her efforts compounded and she was soon presented with a job offer. 

    For 5 months, she worked as a smart contract developer at ViewFin, a global fintech company based in Toronto and Shanghai. As the youngest employee, she integrated a decentralized indexing protocol into the company's token exchange platform and spearheaded her own project there to prevent child labour in the chocolate supply chain. Over the summer, she got to conduct research on smart contract evolution under the guidance of a professor at the University of Waterloo as well. As she grew her network in the blockchain enterprise solutions community, she has also gotten the chance to moderate fireside chats with leaders in the blockchain industry and spark insightful conversations on the potential of blockchain in ESG. She hopes to take her work in blockchain further by delving into IoT, bridging the gap between hardware and software so that she can innovate with the synergized power of both.

    BAXE - Take back the Internet

    BAXE - Take back the Internet

    BAXE is not just a platform, it’s an ecosystem with a vision to take back the internet. As CEO and co founder Christian Moore explains:

    “This is our mission; I have been blessed by a team of highly intelligent capable executives who are passionate about our dream to use blockchain and Web3 technology to make a difference and put control back into the hands of the community and the world.”

    Or to describe it another way, the team behind BAXE call it the world’s first DLT based super app.

    The BAXE Management team has diverse and relevant career backgrounds to contemplate such a major opus: Moore’s background is legal and finance, COO Andrew Broad capital markets technology CTO Dylan Blankenship is blockchain development, CFO James Maher is a CFA and market analyst and CMO Ben Lightfoot’s is in digital media, Facebook to be more precise.

    Much like the app the team is also decentralised across Australia and Asia, their careers have also brought them into the intersection of West meets East in terms of technology and business models which has fuelled the thinking behind the BAXE super app.
