    Collecting funds to support displaced people around the world is only half the battle. The other half is delivering it to people in need – no matter where they are. UNHCR + the UN Refugee Agency are turning to USDC, running on the Stellar blockchain.

    Eliminating the need for those fleeing instability to carry cash, credit or debit cards – aid recipients can access vital support via a Vibrant digital wallet – and exchange their USDC for local currency at any MoneyGram location.

    Mercina Tillerman-Perez is VP at Circle Impact. She joins Thinking On Paper to tell us how they are approaching it, who they are working with, and where the success stories are. It's a long road, there are no easy or quick fixes, but crypto can be used to help get aid and money where it should be.

    Book Club: The Order Of Time (Part 4) - Your Personal Lesson In Quantum Mechanics

    Book Club: The Order Of Time (Part 4) - Your Personal Lesson In Quantum Mechanics

    Welcome to book club. We're still reading the Order of Time by Carlo Rovelli. It's still warping our minds like time and space. This is The surprise episode when I forgot to tell Jeremy our special guest was a quantum physicist!

    What role does quantum gravity play in time? Are they the same thing? What is granularity, and why does it mean time doesn't flow? Hell yeah! What's Planck length? Why does it matter... Superposition of electrons, fine... but superposition of time? The past present and future are just probabilities? WTF?

    Please enjoy the show as much as we did.

    #72 Delivering Cheap Pineapples: How Blockchain Can Make Global Logistics Cheaper, Faster & More Sustainable

    Disruptors and Curious minds! Here's a crazy fact: The global logistics industry is worth €8 trillion a year. It's the critical backbone of the world economy. Yet, it’s haemorrhaging billions due to theft, inefficiency and poorly managed data sharing.

    The dawn of emerging technologies heralds a new era of optimization—ushering in cost-effective, swift, and planet-friendly operations. The ripple effect? You get to enjoy lower-priced goods and speedier deliveries. This week on Thinking on Paper, we learn how...



    Todd Haselhorst is CEO and founder of HEALE, a unified API platform—leverages tokenization and Zero-Knowledge (ZK) proofs to revolutionize data exchange and route optimization for shipping, trucking, and freight.

    We’ll explore how cutting-edge solutions are redefining the landscape of freight, shipping, and delivery companies. These businesses are not just looking to shave off excess costs; they’re on a quest to fortify their data against breaches and ensure their financial health is robust.

    Book Club: The Order Of Time (Part 3) - What Happens When Nothing Happens?

    Book Club: The Order Of Time (Part 3) - What Happens When Nothing Happens?

    Disruptors and curious minds, book lovers. Welcome to book club. We're reading The Order of Time by Carlo Rovelli....And this week It's a battle between Newton and Aristotle and Einstein in the referee. It's twisted. Like space and time. Who is right? Does time move, what happens when nothing happens?

    Gravitational fields.

    Quantum gravity.

    Just what the hell is time?

    Benjamin Franklin said once you lose it, you’ll never find it again. Theophrastrus said it was the most valuable thing you can spend. Pericles said it was the wisest counsellor of all. Oscar Wilde said punctuality steals it away.

    Turns out they were all wrong.

    Ladies and gentlemen, Albert Einstein. “The distinction between the past, present and future is only a stubbornly persistent illusion.”

    Or,

    “Put your hand on a hot stove for a minute and it seems like an hour. Sit with a pretty girl for an hour, and it seems like a minute.”

    Isaac Newton said, “Absolute, true and mathematical time, of itself, and from its own nature flows equably without relation to anything external.”

    Aristotle said, “Remember that time slurs over everything, let all deeds fade, blurs all writings and kills all memories. Exempt are only those which dig into the hearts of men by love.”

    Time really is all we have.

    Please Enjoy The Show.
