As we all despair about current societal issues and the seemingly never-ending list of threats; climate change, war, questionable leadership (without getting too gloomy), there could be an actual solution available, and it could lie within Blockchain Technology.
In 2017 we saw the World Food Program employ Ethereum to distribute 1.4 million food vouchers to 10,500 Syrian refugees in Jordan. And it is aiming for one million transactions, per day. This innovative program, dubbed “Building Blocks”, demonstrates how database efficiency will deliver tangible benefits to the most vulnerable. I applaud the World Food Program’s efforts and believe that its success is a sign of great things to come.
