World first blockchain for sustainable development goals roundtable was held lately in Washington D.C.
It was hosted by 1776.VC and participated by around 200 industrial leaders, investors, and policy makers from all over the world.
When the unknown person going by the name of Satoshi Nakamoto, created blockchain technology in 2008, he had a single vision: a peer-to-peer electronic cash system.
What he didn’t realize is that his creation was not limited to this one application.
The ability to be integrated into various industries from logistics to health care, from energy to agriculture, has led to blockchain being referred to by many as a disruptive innovation.
Although blockchain is gaining popularity quickly, it has yet to be embraced by the public sector.
