Blockchain for Social Impact Conference 2018
As blockchain becomes the shared infrastructure for more and more people to collaborate with one another, participate in global marketplaces, access essential services, and protect their personal data and assets, it is the responsibility of the larger tech community and governments around the world to make sure this technology reaches the vulnerable populations who need it and stand to benefit from it the most.
The global refugee crisis, the fragile state of democracy in many regions, communities without infrastructure, and our planet’s unsustainable agricultural practices are constant reminders that there is much work to be done and that the task is too large for any one project or organization to make a lasting impact.
