Session: Technology and Humanity in Times of War
Hegel believed, “The essence of human civilization is that people are the ultimate goal…All our science and technology, ideology and culture, public services, and all modern civilizations are to serve people and make people live better.”
This is where Blockchain serves the people.

This discussions looks at the role of cryptocurrency and blockchain in times of adversity and how we can better use it to serve humanity.
