Sthorm, a project founded by Argentines and Brazilians, announced the addition of two partners to its board: Bob Richards, founder of NASA Collaborative Companies, and Scott Bagby, pioneer in the market for innovative technology products and one of the first members of the team that revolutionized telecommunications twenty years ago with the introduction from Skype.
Sthorm’s plan is to use, among others, blockchain tokenization and other methodologies, developing decentralized solutions with a focus on health and sustainability to save the planet.
For this venture, Dr. Richards, who worked alongside Carl Sagan for years, has agreed to become chair of Sthorm’s new GreenBook projectan initiative to convert advanced information technologies into tools for environmental regeneration.
“We have a vision of the Earth united as one world, in which the innovations necessary to achieve prosperity and restore the balance of life on this planet unfold in full view and are easily accessible to all.”, he emphasized.
Scott Bagby stressed that his mission is do for applied science what the open source movement did for information technologywhich can combat global problems such as infectious diseases and climate change.
Founded in the state of São Paulo over a decade ago, Sthorm has a team of developers, entrepreneurs and innovators based in Latin America, but with a global vision and reach.
Both founders of the company, Pablo Lobo and Mariano López Hermida, point out that the proposal is “at the intersection between ESG and Open Source movements” and point out that “Sthorm creates and uses cutting-edge technologies to address pressing ecological and social risks“.
The team gained wide recognition a few years ago, at the height of the Covid-19 pandemic, when it used blockchain technologies and other alternative financing and governance mechanisms to raise USD 20 million for the Hospital das Clínicas da Faculdade de Medicina. da USP (HCFMUSP) during that crisis.
Lobo emphasizes that the history of everything we use today in digital technology was built on open source protocols and the goal of ecosystem members is to bring this concept to science so that it is also accessible to more and more people, researchers and scientists from all over the world.
López Hermida says that the objective is make the chain of knowledge and transformation of science accessible to a greater number of people, researchers and developers, so that everyone can collaborate with their experiences in the construction of a new collaborative science.
“We are not going to change the world, nor do we believe that our utopia of building decentralized science will dominate the future. The fight is much more important than victory. And we won’t stop fighting”, concludes López Hermida.
