Blockchain Research Special: Water shortage affects 4 million Cape Town residents | Money Talks (
A small team from our startup Blockchain Company (BC) will be visiting Cape Town South Africa for 2 weeks this mid Feb, 2018. Not only do we love and see great potential for Cape Town and the diversity of South Africa, we also believe we need to help find solutions for Water Drought plaguing parts of our planet, from Cape Town to Southern California. 

Being there in Cape Town and experiencing water drought first hand and seeing how citizens and the city is coping, should give Blockchain Company team empirical insights, on how we can help find near and long term solutions utilising Blockchain and Distributed Ledger technologies. and are two assets among over 50 blockchain assets in our portfolio for roadmap development. We believe we have innovative blockchain solution ideas that can help solve all kinds of use case problems in the interim and for the long term sustainability of places like Cape Town and all over the world.

Mid-April 2018 could be the time, that four million people in South Africa run out of water. The government says Cape Town's largest water reservoir is at dangerously low levels.

A rising population, climate change and drought that's lasted more than two years have taken their toll on water supplies in South Africa's second largest city.

And as Melanie Rice reports, the so-called 'Day Zero' is fast approaching. We are joined by Dr. Anthony Turton, Environmental Advisor and Professor at the Centre for Environmental Management, University of Free State, from Bloemfontein in South Africa.
