Are you using Blockchain and DLT for social and environmental impact?

INATBA Social Impact & Sustainability Working Group is calling change-makers and entrepreneurs using Blockchain to tackle social and environmental challenges to fill the Social Impact Survey.

Social impact survey

INATBA SI&S WG and the Social Impact Survey

Scrypt and iPoint System, as co-chairs of the SI&S working group, in collaboration with the INATBA members IOTA, Kunfud and Impact have focused their efforts this year in identifying projects and organizations that aim to create positive social and environmental impact with the help of Distributed Ledger Technologies (DLT). To date, the working group has identified over 200 such organizations and projects in over 50 countries, worldwide.

The INATBA Social Impact & Sustainability Working Group prepared the Social Impact survey to map and analyze the “Blockchain for impact” ecosystem and identify the challenges met by projects when using Blockchain to achieve the UN Sustainable Development Goals.

The working group will analyse the results and will, later, publish them in a report.  The aim is to identify the trends and challenges and engage into discussions with entrepreneurs, investors, decision-makers and regulators to support social innovation and increase Blockchain and DLT projects’ impact.

Please note that:

  • Your responses will be treated as business in confidence
  • All personal data will be stored securely and not shared with any third-party 
  • The results shared in the report will be anonymized
  • The report will contain the names of the projects taking part on the social impact survey


Officially launched in April 2019, the International Association for Trusted Blockchain Applications (INATBA) offers developers and users of blockchain and distributed ledger technologies (DLT) a global forum. INATBA aims mainly to interact with regulators and policy makers to bring blockchain technology to the next stage.

Founded by 105 organization, the Association now counts about 160 members representing nonprofits and micro, small, medium and large companies. These organizations represent the full distributed ledger technology ecosystem and have joined forces to strengthen the collaboration within the ecosystem and to develop international frameworks for distributed ledger technologies.

The members are organising the discussions in 13 working groups, among them the Social Impact and Sustainability working group, that aim to leverage a variety of expertise to highlight the vast potential of Blockchain and other DLTs to tackle some of today’s most pressing issues, including climate change, modern slavery, poverty, inequality, food waste, fraud, corruption, and other areas addressed by the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The social impact survey is the first step to establish the dialogue with change-makers and entrepreneurs.
