In this week’s Blockleaders Podcast we hear about OpenLitterMap and Litter Coin, an open source collecting geographic data on litter, brands and plastic pollution. 

Founder Sean Lynch talks about how his background playing video games and his studies in geography in university came together to give him the ‘ah-ha’ moment he needed to create OpenLitterMap. 

Thus he created a game type software where users can log litter and pollution and earn crypto in return. The data collected is openly available. Anyone can download the data for free, and use it for any purpose, without permission.
