Projects

  • Australian Government - Department of Agriculture and Water Resources Australian Government - Department of Industry, Innovation and Science Project: Water Ledgerhttps://www.business.gov.au/assistance/business-research-and-innovation-initiative,South E
    In March 2017, Civic Ledger successfully applied for funding under the Business Research and Innovation Initiative (BRII) to develop and deliver a Feasibility Study Report to consider whether a blockchain based distributed exchange platform could increase the transparency in water market trading. Civic Ledger was one of four companies selected by the Department of Industry, Innovation and Science. During the development of the Feasibility Study Report, we found that the original hypothesis evolved rapidly through the Challenge process and differed in some significant ways from the original proposal. As such, the problem to be solved was reposed. Civic Ledger designed a blockchain-based solution to solve the complexity of the trade itself. Further, we were able to articulate the importance of defining the governance arrangements (public policy and ASIC / ACCC implications) and Standards to support the blockchain solution design for application within global water marketplaces. The purpose of the Water Ledger project was to verify all transactions (water trades) and update State registries in real time to prove in the public interest that something happened (a state of change) and its provenance of such a transaction (water trade).,In partnership with Marsden Jacobs Associates, Civic Ledger has been engaged by South East Water to deliver a Feasibility Study on the potential of a blockchain based micro-trading platform for the purpose of enabling residents at Fishermans� Bend to trade rainwater / reclaimed water.
