THE WAY THINGS OUGHT TO BE
...at its core, value is not divided, but rather is whole; it is a blend of economic, social, and financial components which, when taken together, give us the total returns we seek in our investing, in our philanthropy and in our lives.

The Impact Token Project
The brightest minds in investing, philanthropy, business and the not-for-profit/NGO world have worked to develop frameworks for investing in, incentivizing, measuring, evaluating and benchmarking the creation of Social Good. Foundations, think tanks, corporations and universities have developed complex and thorough data tracking methodologies. The largest investment managers in the world have allocated more than $8 trillion of financial capital toward advancing for-profit Impact-focused business models. Individuals and institutions in the United States alone have dedicated foundation assets of nearly $1 trillion to creating sustainable Social Impact. Yet even with this staggering collection of expertise and resources, the “Holy Grail” of Philanthropy and Impact Investing has eluded the ecosystem for decades. The dream? Simply put – Capturing and (even more profoundly longed for) Monetizing the Creation of Social Good - in a way that aligns incentives and can be easily understood.
Blockchain technology, smart contracts and cryptocurrencies are being researched and theorized as solutions for addressing issues of provenance and transparency and as a means of providing donations to global NGOs in decentralized currencies, and though these applications will eventually provide remarkable utility to the industry as a whole, they have yet to capture the imagination of the broader community.
The Impact Token Project and its associated token/cryptocurrency, ITKN, represent that “Holy Grail” for an industry in excess of $10 trillion globally. The Impact Token Project represents the nexus of economic theory, blockchain technology/philosophy and the remarkable research and efforts of Social Good Ecosystem participants. This white paper describes how The Impact Token Project and ITKN will bring together the entire system to finally deliver on a grand ideal long envisaged but never thought achievable.
