BioCoin - biodiversity information cryptocurrency


In a recent blog post Towards a biodiversity token: Bitcoin, FinTech, and a radical suggestion for the GBIF Challenge I discussed the idea of a “biodiversity token”, using cryptocurrency to fund GBIF activities. Turns out there is something like this already, called “BioCoin”, being developed by QuestaGame! The BioCoin website looks very slick, and has Donald Hobern listed as being on their advisory panel. Is this for real?

I’ve attached their white paper describing the idea in more detail: White Paper - Developing a Global BioBIT Coin.pdf (194.7 KB)


So that got interesting very quickly, see
