GENEVA, April 12, 2019 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/ --

The most prominent ICT Forum was the right setting for Horyou, the social 
network for social good, to establish the relevance and timeliness of its 
digital currency with a purpose

HoryouToken was introduced by Yonathan Parienti, founder and CEO of Horyou, the 
social network for social good, at the World Summit on the Information Society 
- WSIS Forum 2019 - the most prominent global ICT event co-organized by United 
Nation agencies ITU, UNESCO, UNDP and UNCTAD, which gathered industry 
representatives and government officials from 193 countries and took place from 
8-12 April, in Geneva.


During a high-level policy session on inclusiveness and access to information, 
as well as in a workshop around HoryouToken*, Yonathan Parienti, initiator of 
the concept of a Blockchain with a Purpose, elaborated on the relevance and 
timeliness of a socially inclusive digital currency. His contribution to the 
forum, especially in the 'Technology for Sustainable Development and Impact in 
an Ever-Changing World' workshop, highlighted the role of HoryouToken to 
support social good actions, information and projects, echoing the UN 
Sustainable Development Goals. While making it possible for any person to 
support social good, HoryouToken also provides access to a redistribution 
service called Proof of Impact, a traceable, transparent system that will 
monetize daily transactions and fund real-world social good projects, people 
and organizations around the world.

"Many entrepreneurs, citizens and members of the youth are waiting for the 
extra push for their projects and social good actions, which can be made 
through visibility but also funding. This is the reason why we developed a 
currency for inclusion - a transparent, decentralized way to impact people, 
leveraging a global community of change makers," said Mr. Parienti during the 
high-level policy session. 

Yonathan Parienti highlighted the power of social networks like Horyou, which 
promotes meaningful connectivity amongst its global community, spreading to 
more than 180 countries. "These citizens are shaping tomorrow's world and 
sharing initiatives that touch their hearts. They represent culture, art, 
diversity and advance innovation," he added. 

The WSIS Forum has traditionally promoted cutting-edge discussions about 
disruptive innovations thanks to its crowdsourced agenda, which has put topics 
such as Big Data, AI and Blockchain at the center stage, gathering from 
innovative corporations and startups, government officials to members of the 
youth and social entrepreneurs. "Being among such important actors in this 
ecosystem is mere proof that we are following the right path for social 
innovation and technology for good," declared Mr. Parienti.
