Eradicating Poverty with Blockchain

How blockchain can end poverty in developing economies – a talk with Vally Azar from Kommerce at Blockchain Zoo HQ.

Have you ever wondered how blockchain can end poverty? The lack of trust and thereby of trade financing in developing economies leads to extreme resource scarcity and inability for economic growth. Blockchain can bridge the gap and allow money to flow in and kickstart healthy capitalism.

Join us for an event with Vally Azar, VP of Growth at Kommerce, who is going to share his insights on this matter and outlines how emerging markets and blockchain can bring an end to poverty. He will also introduce his Kommerce project and how their live pilot on the Ethereum testnet is already reducing poverty and hunger in Africa through blockchain technology.

WHEN: Tuesday 1 October at 5 PM (UCT+8)

WHERE: Blockchain Zoo office in Ubud or Livecast
