For cryptocurrency to truly make a global impact, there needs to be a stable digital currency that even governments can use and trust.
It’s our mission to create the first true asset-backed digital cryptocurrency: a global currency that is 100% backed by over $5 billion USD of sustainable old-growth forestry assets and a further 100 metric tons of unencumbered gold assets registered through the Bank for International Settlements (BIS).
It will be traded on its own proprietary exchange platform and has no fixed cap of circulation, allowing more Carbon Dollar X to be issued as more Carbon Credits are deposited: similar to the functioning of the gold standard.
DISTRIBUTED LEDGER TECHNOLOGY
The throughput of Carbon Dollar X’s distributed ledger technology equates to hundreds of thousands of transactions per second, regardless of the distance of the parties partaking in these transactions.
This is not only between ten and a hundred times faster than that of Visa or MasterCard, but outranks the throughput of Bitcoin which is limited to between three and seven transactions per second.
It takes a few seconds or even fractions of a second to issue cryptographic proof that the transaction has been assigned an order to which be processed by the ledger community and that it will go through with certainty to such extent that the cryptographic proof would hold up as evidence in court.
This is not only the strongest level of security, but parallels that of the gold standard due to the level of strength in distributed ledger technology’s math proofs. Its Byzantine status allows the Carbon Dollar X distributed ledger technology to keep getting consensus throughout its community whereas its asynchronicity prevents malicious DDoS attacks: threats seeking to send a server a large number of requests requiring intensive handling of resources and processing which inevitably shuts it down from overload.
Ordering on the Carbon Dollar X’s distributed ledger technology will be established by when each transaction reaches most of the community as that will also establish its designated timestamp. With this new fairness rule introduced, no individual or organization can influence the processing speed of their transaction: whichever transaction reaches the community first, be it for one Carbon Dollar X (1 CDX) or one million Carbon Dollar X (1’000’000 CDX), will be ordered and timestamped first to such that they are validly held in court.
Chief Executive OfficerAn Organizational Psychologist by formal education, Ian is widely regarded as a possibility expert. His clients and colleagues frequently refer to and access his uncanny ability to see game-changing possibilities others don’t see and turn them into profitable new realities.
Ian’s been an entrepreneur since undergraduate days launching his first company in 1971. He focused on the healthcare sector, and hospitals specifically, resulting in a sterling reputation across his native Canada. This early work involved some of the most renowned transformations in the healthcare scene including the founding of the first ever program designed to teach physicians how to be medical school Deans and Department Heads.
Over time his consulting work expanded into a wide variety of industries globally and across North America including technology companies, government ministries, professional services, education, manufacturing, finance and insurance, agriculture and retail operations. Major companies such as KPMG, Royal Bank of Canada and UNIFI Insurance retained his services for well over ten years. Year after year he was able to expand their thinking to see the opportunities all around them.
Not only is he able to unify people and focus them on their highest possibilities, he is a gifted corporate speaker having spoken to senior corporate audiences around the world. This rare ability led to the honor of being inducted into both the USA and Canadian Speaker Halls of Fame. Successful Meetings magazine declared him “One of the top 21 speakers for the 21st century.”
Ian founded a company with access to a software technology capable of ensuring fault-free software source code. Faulty software is an almost incalculable expense for world businesses. This technology is still in development.
Ian admits to having low tolerance for incremental change. There are such enormous possibilities available to us, he insists. As one colleague put it, “Ian is a possibility magnet!” He’s also written seven books and contributes frequently to various professional blogs and newsletters.
Ian and his wife Georgia live in Scottsdale, Arizona and hold dual citizenship.
