Fylakia Mnimis(Memory Box) is a collection of 555 unique video NFTs on the Solana Blockchain. Each NFT represents the idea of Memory that is contained in a Fylakio Mnimis (Memory Box).It is a unique piece of Art made by the drypoint technique , applied on a transparent plexiglass. This Memory Box created by the Greek famous Artist Xenis Sachinis, encapsulates the history of the symbols that all inmates of the Nazi Camps wore on their uniform and at the same time, it embodies the presence of Memory and Nemesis. By putting the engraved and inked matrix between two mirrors, in this three dimensional box, we multiply its idol to the infinitive, thus protecting Memory to perpetuity.
The 1st edition of the e-book "Virtual Power Plant Solution for Future Smart Energy Communities" was issued recently. This book provides a general overview of virtual power plants (VPP) as a key technology in future energy communities and active distribution and transmission networks for managing distributed energy resources, providing local and global services, and facilitating market participation of small-scale managing distributed energy resources and prosumers. The book also aims at describing some practical solutions, business models, and novel architectures for the implementation of VPPs in the real world.

The Municipality of Argos-Mycenae became the first Municipality to install Blockchain technology. In the context of the integration of new technologies and the modernization of its administrative structures, the Municipality of Argos-Mycenae became the first Municipality of Greece to implement the Blockchain technology in its services.
The specific application created and implemented by Blockchain 2050 BV, is expected to lead to a series of innovative and efficient services to citizens, while ensuring the inviolability of a series of documents issued and certified by municipal services. In addition, time-consuming and costly procedures for certifying and uniqueness of a document are avoided, as it is an interactive platform for electronic signature and document authentication with Blockchain technology.
Thus, the need to provide services that are more reliable, faster, safer and with the least possible participation of the citizen and the public service is effectively covered, while reducing the possibility of errors to the minimum possible level.
The entry of the Municipality of Argos-Mycenae in Blockchain technology creates the belief that other Municipalities and public bodies will follow the path of technological development of new systems, modernizing their structures and services to the citizens.

As of 30/June/2020, a team of stakeholders from quite different verticals, work objectives and geographical origins gave birth to a brilliant initiative of a quite pioneering vision: Space Waste management via Blockchain Technology. The project aims to counter the problem of space debris. More than 20.000 objects larger than 3 inches and over 128 million of smaller size, are populating several orbits around Earth. Most of them pose a great risk since they contain toxic and hazardous materials. By using Blockchain technology, space waste management will be effectively conducted by accurately mapping out floating debris. Blockchain technology is selected as a major pillar of this pioneering work because it presents significant potential for secure data sharing and improving the robustness of data collection of space debris and space waste management among the numerous projects and different stakeholders.

Regarding the forthcoming HORIZON EUROPE calls and topics which are relevant to clusters: CL4 (WP7 - Digital, Industry and Space), CL5 (WP8 - Climate, Energy and Mobility) and CL6 (WP9 - Food, Bioeconomy, Natural Resources, Agriculture and Environment), we are planning to base our contribution onto Blockchain technology and tokenization for data transparency, security and enhanced adaptation. Specifically for tokenization we should mention that it is quite essential to numerous transactions aiming to remove any original sensitive payment or personal data from business systems, thus to protect them from negative financial impacts of a data theft. It provides safety and security to consumers and also compliance with industry regulations significantly easier, being applied to any potential vertical today.
