What is Nature 2.0?
Nature 2.0 describes systems in which natural resources govern themselves with the help of technologies like blockchain, smart contracts and artificial intelligence. Blockchain makes it possible to create decentralised systems that are based on smart contracts. Artificial intelligence can enable non-human entities to become agents.
These ownerless systems can be designed to act in the interest of sustaining and re-generating natural systems, to benefit the earth and to benefit humanity. For example, they could be programmed to contribute their profits to universal basic income.
How can we transition from a mentality of scarcity — a zero-sum game of "I win, you lose"
— to one of abundance — a positive sum game, where "everybody wins"
? Nature 2.0 combines and extends AI * blockchain into a symbiosis of biology and machine, for a future of abundance.
