The following markets are partially addressed by startups and companies, but so far the available blockchain options didn't serve the needs for a IoT driven future. That will change with ARTIS 2.0, as it addresses the problems at the core.
Energy system are typically very centralized and the market is historically highly regulated. But due to the need to act against climate many countries are becoming serious in their efforts to allow a broad participation in building and running Distributed Energy Resources (DER) and forming energy communities.
The EU - a market with over 200m households - the Clean Energy Package mandates all member states to allow the exchange of energy among neighbors in 2021 and grant tax relieves and grid fee reductions. Read more about this here.
Distributed Energy Resources (DER) will see massive investments over the next decades in order to tackle climate change. Ideally the capital flows are as efficient as possible and therefore the ARTIS 2.0 blockchain network will be best positioned to serve that upcoming markets.
After every boom in the crypto markets, there is a phase where people secure their wealth in real-world assets, e.g. houses or other real-estate. Investing in DER will be one of the safest options to invest, as it is clear that the energy consumption will increase over time and people need energy to live a convenient life.
Data is kept in silos of big and small corporations and most data scientists struggle to find the data needed to develop the next great AI system.
Making that data available in an open marketplace is something which will benefit innovation and human development in unprecedented ways. The first steps into that future can be seen with the Ocean Market using standard ERC-20 data-tokens and a Balancer pool logic for staking and curating the data sets made available by the publishers.
The Corona-Pandemic has accelerated the trend towards online purchase and delivery to everyones doorstep. Unfortunately, the transport industry is said to have only a 10% overall efficiency and when talking about solutions, it comes down to a concept called Physical Internet (PI), where standard boxes are hauled from storage unit to storage unit with small trucks, being loaded and unloaded in line with the routing for the packages.
This will reduce cost and improve efficiency, but it also will need a fully automated blockchain based accounting system in order to have an open market and to make sure everyone can benefit from it. You find a more in depth explanation here.
Traveling during Corona became hard and even before the many new restrictions were imposed, it was hard to plan a trip and book tickets for it.
This is mainly due to the siloed information and the vast amount of participants in the transport sector. Contractual obligations and business models make even small integrations really hard to implement.
This will change with an open platform like ARTIS 2.0, which will allow data, money and identity information flow in an easy way. More on this subject here.
Tesla's revenue in 2020 from their emission credits was $1.4 billion [Bloomberg, Jan 27, 2021] and it visualizes how important carbon credit markets have become. Government use them to support a green agenda and companies known for their polluting business model support some development opportunities to reduce or at least not further inflate the carbon emissions.
Beside the carbon markets there is a real chance to solve climate change via carbon sequestration in soils and that is a potential mega market in order to avoid widespread fraud. Details on this opportunity can be found here.
