On the 10 th of October 2019, Istanbul Blockchain Women initiated Blockchain Use Case Series at ING Innovation Centre, Istanbul. Istanbul Blockchain Women laid its foundations in 2018, with the aim to support and increase the presence of women in particular, in the blockchain ecosystem. Plastic Twist was represented at the first event of Blockchain Use Case Series.
CEO of Tages, Leyla Arsan, was invited to speak about the ideology behind, and to announce the launch of, Plastic Twist: The Art of Making a New Plastic Economy which will take place at Pera Museum on the 10 th of November, 2019. Plastic Twist aims to create a new plastic economy, using blockchain techniques. Arsan stressed about the importance of rethinking plastics as an asset, rather than waste.
Plastic Twist aims to revalue plastics in three steps: gamification, asserting the importance of valuing plastic as an asset, and creating a marketplace for the buying and selling of plastic. The marketplace will model the style of blockchain – an immutable and distributed database, where data can be stored safely. This is a new kind of economic ecosystem, one that requires no banks or centralised agencies for the purpose of trade. In doing so, Plastic Twist has launched its own Plastic Wallet, an application available on android and IOS devices, where one can purchase Plastic Tokens, creating not only a new marketplace, but also a new currency for the trade of plastics.
