Deepak Chopra Officially Enters The Blockchain Space

It is important to note that Mr.Chopra had already stoked the ire of Ethereum bigwigs more than 2 years ago for being announced as a speaker at the Ethereal conference in New York in 2018. Vitalik Buterin himself blasted him as a ‘fraud’ publicly on Twitter. Nonetheless, the talk went well, as per Mr. Chopra.

Fast forward to 2020, the globally revered public speaker has announced his plans to officially launch his own token. Termed ‘Love in Action,’ its launch will coincide with Suicide Prevention Week. In the words of the Chopra Foundation, the token is a “worldwide campaign to heal the world.”

When the ex-United States (FDIC) regulator turned blockchain regulation commentator Jason Bretts tapped Chopra for technical details about the token, the latter said:

We are currently working on our strategic roadmap for the ‘Love In Action’ token. Our goal is to leverage the ‘proof of state/work’ on the Hedera platform to incentivize healthy behaviors and promote wellbeing via the token. We will initially leverage hbar as the currency and convert to our own coin in the latter part of 2021.
