Leapfrogging into the Future
DECEMBER 30, 2015
One such conversation was with a doctor from Burma. He was intrigued by what this distributed infrastructure could mean for his work in Burma. We discussed how Burma is now the first “smartphone only” country in the world. When speaking about the blockchain to many people in the United States, I get a puzzled look on why the technology matters. And why should these transactions cost the poor more than they cost the wealthy? I last went to Burma in 2007.
