Gregory Landua first guides the listener through a "Cryptocurrency and Blockchain 101" for all of those unfamiliar with these new technologies. (for those listeners who are really familiar, you can skip to the 24 minute mark). He then explains how his new project Regen Network is building a blockchain and cryptocurrency that is based on the monitoring of the effects of regenerative agriculture. The result would be a new economic force on the planet that is rooted in the regeneration of planetary ecosystems and agricultural lands. This is all pretty mind blowing, but listen carefully for the hour and a quarter and you will be introduced to a vision for an entirely different economic system who's value is based off of restoring soil, water, forests, and oceans.
