Our CEO Leyla Arsan has participated as a panelist to “The Blockchain Ecospace powered by Women in Tech” webinar, which was organized on November 25, 2020 by Disrupt Network. It was an interactive panel and participants had the opportunity for networking.
The Blockchain Ecospace panel was moderated by Disrupt Network, which helps education and dissemination in the blockchain area. In this interactive panel every panelist shared their profession on the blockchain ecosystem and had the opportunity for networking with the participants after presentations.
CEO of TAGES Leyla Arsan, CEO of MenaPay Çağla Gül Şenkardeşler, CEO of CryptoIndexSeries Gökçe Phillips and Director of XYZ Technology Ayşegül Şensoy joined the panel as speakers.
Panel started with the presentation of CryptoIndexSeries. Gökçe Phillips, Co-founder of CryptoIndexSeries, gave details about data, tools and insights of her company provided for crypto professionals: “There’s a lot of information but it is unorganized. With all this information market professionals try to collect classify and standardize data. So basically there is quite a lot of activities for any market professional to do before giving any trading decision. We are trying to make life easy for crypto market professionals. We have introduced index universe and real time news feed so you don’t miss any news. We give you the power to create your own customize reports and you can clearly manage your portfolio.”
Our CEO Leyla Arsan was the second speaker and she talked about TAGES’s latest innovation, Plastic Twist Platform, which combines environmental responsibilities through plastics and tokenization. She started to her presentation highlighting the effects of plastic pollution and gave significant examples of economic system; “The current economic models generate costs. The linear economy and recycling economy, all these generate costs and doesn’t solve the plastic problem and creates more… We have produced so much plastic products, so why not using them as a resource for the next one instead of producing virgin plastics. A so- called the new plastic economy by economic forum sets targets for the circular economy. There are three ambitions. The main three targets were fundamentally redesign and innovation and it is 30%, the reuse is 20% and recycling is 50%, which are the potential plastic packaging for the market. There is still no meaningful relationship between the costs; producers and consumers pay for the plastic and the global environmental impact. I think this reflects the failure of the financial system.”
Leyla Arsan mentioned the importance of collaborating, creating awareness and social impact. She talked about convergence and redesign, innovation moonshots; close key knowledge gaps and engaging policy makers. Leyla Arsan continued to her presentation sharing Plastic Twist Platform’s aim: “Blockchain will be the solution infrastructure and what we offer is plastics. It helps to platform monetizing and incentivizing the sustainable reuse of plastics by twisting tokens. Plastic Twist offers a composite solution connecting a technological format with concrete diverse solutions to kickstart an alternative plastic economy. Plastic Twist Platform brings together and supply and demand for recyclable material but also for expertise and products. The core dynamic of the platform is the allocation and the exchange of plastic tokens for material knowledge and commitment to the individuals. The new currency is independent of the current speculative value of plastic. It reflects the dimensions that the material has the sustainable practice. So the blockchain environment is needed to define this complexity transparently which works on hyper ledger system ERC20. If you are a corporate or an industry or an individual looking empower environmental ideas, you can buy twists, spend them on the pre-twist market, supporting a maker who will give you products and the plastic certification that you purchased. These actions remove plastic from the environment and collaborate to a local business and incentivize the use of clean energy in its distribution. Your contributions will be noted an endorsement in the Plastic Twist ecosystem, which along with the number of twists purchased can be used to reflect your environmental action.”
