Blockchain will keep you young …
Can Blockchain help you stay young ?
Maybe, maybe not but here are a few ways to look and feel younger….
- Exercising and staying active
- Learn a new skill or language
- Well balanced diet
- Friends and family
Exercising and staying active
It’s well known that any kind of exercise, whether 20 minutes a day or a walk up the stairs, helps you stay healthy and young.
In fact , exercising helps your brain remove proteins like amyloid. This is one of those proteins that accumulate over time and some believe play a part in Alzheimer’s or make those with Alzheimer’s worse. And there hasn’t been a drug that lowers amyloid.
Blockchain and exercise….
maybe with a Fitbit and some heart-rate sensors that monitor whether your heartbeats faster or slower, maybe written to the Blockchain. Possibly obtain rewards with a token or bitcoin for more steps , better heart rate , cholesterol, etc. maybe some amyloid like sensor. If possible.
So there is a use case for Blockchain here.
Learn a new skill or language
There is a ton of research around challenging your brain to reduce your risks of dementia. But how complex does the challenge have to be to reduce dementia? Learn mandarin at 75? Learn cryptography at 65? Learn how to salsa dance at 90? Skydive at 100? And how often , how much is needed ?
Finding new activities that interest you and trying to get better is the important part. Your brain stays active and interested.
Instead of your brain just giving up sometimes , it’ll find alternative options because it’s always finding new challenges.
Blockchain and new challenges …
Of course learning about Blockchain, cryptocurrency, and technology is a challenge , but it serves no purpose if someone quits in a few minutes. Find something that you’ll enjoy and stick with it. And mix it up every year.
Who says a 91 year old can’t build smart contracts in solidity ? Why not. Maybe they would bring a different perspective. It might also create an adventure or new bonding experience with grandkids or great grandkids.
Sleep is something the tech space and some musicians, actors, etc brag they don’t ever need or get. But it’s well known a good nights sleep is not only good for you , but can help you stay youthful and attentive and productive.
Blockchain and sleep …
Turn off the tv. Don’t put your smart phone near your bed. Stop eating unhealthy and drinking caffeine right before bed. Do some yoga and meditation. Breathe deeply.
Sleep patterns could be stored on the Blockchain and maybe if you add smart sensors that listen to your breathing and voice and heartbeat, a Blockchain like token or bitcoin reward for sleeping better and longer could be a good incentive.
Well balanced diet
Eating more vegetables and fruit makes you healthier and younger. And is great for your memory and cognitive capabilities. A well balanced diet is key.
Stay away from saturated fats and trans fats. They damage you and your heart and your brain. Avoid fried foods.
Certain studies claim you can reduce your risk of Alzheimer’s by like 40% by eating Blueberries, raspberries, blackberries (all high in antioxidants), Leafy greens like kale , & fish. But you need to avoid things like red meat , butter , fried foods , anything with high saturated and trans fats.
There are tons of Blockchain and IOT and artificial intelligence use cases for supply chain , food , agriculture , and restaurants. Look at the recall for lettuce now.
It’s not a ‘Blockchain will save lettuce ‘ but it could be one piece of an integrated ecosystem platform that catches recalls long before people get sick or even die form poison food.
Friends and family
There are many studies that show us having a good social circle helps people live a healthier longer life. Many Studies about Grandkids and grandparents and happy kids becoming happy adults and grandparents extending their lives and being healthier. Same with good friends.
Blockchain and family
The thanksgiving dinner this year might not be a happy medium if you brought up bitcoin and crypto last year. So tread lightly. But Blockchain and Wallets and economic theory are all conversations people should have. What better way to teach various generations.

Ports, harbors & marinas can often pose hazardous risks due to murky and dark water conditions, which in turn makes it difficult for divers to perform biosecurity inspections.
The Ookeani – Luure underwater surveillance platform utilizes remotely operated vehicles (ROVs) is to improve safety and security for underwater surveillance inspections and capabilities.
Hazardous Risk to Divers and inspectors
One of Pagarba’s clients handles high risk diving and inspection situations and locations, where there is a high volume of departures and arrivals from domestic and international vessels. One of the clients maritime responsibilities is to manage the safety, security & risk factors due to marine pest invasion.
Many times the underwater locations like this can be dark, murky, and filled with kelp and seaweed and other debris so as to present very low visibility for the professional divers inspecting that area.
And when there are a high number of large and small vessels coming in and out of these ports and marinas, and the occasional visit from large predators like whales, sea lions, and sharks, these divers are at even higher risk and sometimes dangerous situations.
Underwater visual inspections powered by the computer vision & AI Ookeani-luure platform with the blueye robotics ROV
When a buffet of risks and dangers face humans during underwater inspections, Pagarba’s Maritime client needed a system and solution to complete tasks without this stress and worry. There is also future savings on high risk insurance liability costs. That’s why they turned to Pagarba Solutions to improve their visual inspections and underwater surveillance video analysis using the Ookeani-luure AI powered blueye robotics ROV.
This underwater ocean surveillance intelligence ROV platform has allowed them to perform far more in depth and detailed automated search and analysis visual inspections, detections, checks & precision predictions for invasive pests by using its computer vision and video intelligence capabilities. The team can discover, review, analyze and predict underwater challenges from their mobile app or tablet on the surface and ensure the safety and security of the professional divers. They can even run simultaneous inspections with multiple ROVs.
Not only are ROVs becoming more frequently used for these types of inspections, but Pagarba and some of their clients are researching and experimenting with autonomous underwater ROVs and discovering new ways to automate , analyze and optimize the use of a variety of different ROVs. Call it the Intelligent ROV surveillance platform for biosecurity and compliance with computer vision, AI powered video search and analysis – including survey designs and identification of specimens found in ports, harbors and marinas.
