as amended (the "Exchange Act") and the rules and regulations of the United States

(2)	do and perform any and all acts for and on behalf of the undersigned which may be

with the SEC and any stock exchange or similar authority, including completing and
executing a Uniform Application for Access Codes to File on Edgar on Form ID; and
(3) 	take any other action of any type whatsoever in connection with the foregoing which,
in the opinion of such attorney-in-fact, may be of benefit to, in the best interest of, or
legally required by, the undersigned, it being understood that the documents executed by such

such form and shall contain such terms and conditions as such attorney-in-fact may approve in
such attorney-in-fact's discretion.
The undersigned hereby grants to the attorney-in-fact full power and authority to do and
perform any and every act and thing whatsoever requisite, necessary or proper to be done in
the exercise of the rights and powers herein granted, as fully to all intents and
purposes as the undersigned might or could do if personally present, with full power of
substitution or revocation, hereby ratifying and confirming all that such attorney-in-fact
shall lawfully do or cause to be done by virtue of this power of attorney and the rights
and powers herein granted. The undersigned acknowledges that neither Akerna nor the

at the request of the undersigned, are not assuming any liability for the undersigned's
responsibility to comply with the requirements of Section 13 or Section 16 of the Exchange

requirements, or any liability of the undersigned for disgorgement of profits under
Section 16(b) of the Exchange Act.
The undersigned agrees that each such attorney-in-fact herein may rely entirely on information
furnished orally or in writing by the undersigned to such attorney-in-fact. The undersigned
also agrees to indemnify and hold harmless Akerna and such attorney-in-fact against
any losses, claims, damages or liabilities (or actions in these respects) that arise out of
or are based upon any untrue statement or omission of necessary facts in the information
provided by the undersigned to such attorney-in fact for purposes of executing, acknowledging,
delivering or filing Forms 3, 4 or 5 (including amendments thereto)
 and agrees to reimburse Akerna and such attorney-in-fact for any legal
or other expenses reasonably incurred in connection with investigating or defending against
any such loss, claim, damage, liability or action.
This Power of Attorney supersedes any power of attorney previously executed by the undersigned
regarding the purposes outlined in the first paragraph hereof ("Prior Powers of Attorney"),
and the authority of the attorneys-in-fact named in any Prior Powers of Attorney is hereby
This Power of Attorney shall remain in full force and effect until the undersigned is no
longer required to file Forms 3, 4 and 5 with respect to the undersigned's holdings of and
transactions in securities issued by Akerna, unless earlier revoked by the
undersigned in a signed writing delivered to the foregoing attorneys-in-fact.
This Power of Attorney may be filed with the SEC as a confirming statement of authority
granted herein.
IN WITNESS WHEREOF, the undersigned has caused this Power of Attorney to be executed
as of this 6th day of August, 2021.
