  • 63. ITW Nicolas Merle - Cofondateur SmartB

    ITW Nicolas Merle - Cofondateur SmartBLa blockchain au service des projets à impactLa technologie blockchain, souvent associée aux crypto-monnaies, est à l’avant-garde de l’innovation, promettant des changements transformateurs dans la manière dont les politiciens, les gouvernements, les institutions et les organisations à but non lucratif (OBNL) allouent des fonds à des projets à fort impact. Imaginez un monde où les fonds publics seraient distribués avec précision, évitant ainsi le gaspillage et l’inefficacité. Cette vision devient tangible grâce à des applications judicieuses de la technologie blockchain.Statistiques sur le financement inefficace :Un rapport de la Banque mondiale révèle que jusqu'à 30 % des fonds publics alloués aux projets succombent à l'inefficacité, à la mauvaise gestion et à la corruption. Ces chiffres alarmants soulignent le besoin urgent d’un système transparent et responsable pour orienter les fonds vers des projets qui font réellement la différence.Potentiel de transformation de la blockchain :Au-delà du battage médiatique autour des pièces stables, des NFT et des arnaques aux ICO, la nature décentralisée et transparente de la blockchain peut révolutionner la gestion et l'allocation des fonds. Cette technologie favorise une culture de confiance et de responsabilité, remettant en question l’approche conventionnelle du financement public.Le rôle de SmartB dans l'identification des projets à impact :À Montpellier, en France, SmartB, une startup pionnière, exploite la blockchain pour aider les gouvernements et les OBNL à identifier et soutenir des projets à fort impact. SmartB fournit un système de traçabilité précis, garantissant une utilisation efficace et efficiente des fonds publics. En offrant des informations en temps réel sur l'avancement du projet, les transactions financières et les mesures d'impact, SmartB minimise le risque de mauvaise allocation et de corruption.Exemple concret :Imaginez un gouvernement visant à améliorer l’éducation dans les communautés mal desservies. La plateforme de SmartB permet aux responsables de suivre chaque centime, de l'allocation au déploiement des ressources, garantissant ainsi que les fonds atteignent leur destination prévue. Cette transparence responsabilise les citoyens en présentant des résultats tangibles, favorisant ainsi la confiance dans la gouvernance.Conclusion:La technologie Blockchain laisse espérer un système de financement public plus responsable et plus efficace. L'approche innovante de SmartB, ancrée dans une traçabilité précise, va au-delà du battage médiatique du Web3. L’intégration de la blockchain dans la gouvernance et les opérations des OBNL ouvre la voie à un avenir où les projets à fort impact fleuriront et où les ressources publiques seront utilisées de manière responsable. Alors que nous sommes à l’aube d’un changement transformateur, la question demeure : les décideurs politiques et les institutions saisiront-ils l’opportunité de redéfinir la manière dont le financement public façonne notre monde ?
