Weekly we propose videos from the Blockchain Zoo youtube archive!
This week video is: Eradicating Poverty with Blockchain | BlockTalk #6
How can blockchain change poverty? The lack of trust and thereby of trade financing in developing economies leads to extreme resource scarcity and an inability for economic growth. Vally Azar, VP of Growth at Kommerce, shares his insights on this matter and outlines how blockchain bridges the gap and allows money to flow in and kickstart healthy capitalism. He also introduces his Kommerce project and how their live pilot on the Ethereum testnet is already reducing poverty and hunger in Africa through blockchain technology.
