New Trust Economy

Blockchain is the technology that’s inclusive of people that weren’t included before. It’s a major broadening of reach and access in the way that the internet initially was for people just to be able to communicate. Blockchain lets people invest and do things in terms of money now that they could never do before. In terms of inclusion, it’s become even broader. We’ve got developing countries inclusions and multiple markets that were untouched. We’ve got women in tech and marginalized people and places. We’ve got securitization of assets that totally eradicates things like white lie and prejudice in lending and other big barriers to opportunities for investment.

But what is blockchain and what is cryptocurrency anyway? Go back to the basics with hosts Monika Proffitt and Tracy Hazzard as they provide a perspective for everyone who is new to the crypto and blockchain space on the whole blockchain technology, as well as go deep into issues such as women in tech, gender balance in the workplace, having enough value-based advancement for women in the workforce, innovation applications, applications built on blockchain or crypto, what you had to go through to make it happen, what’s not happening or what’s missing, what’s not working, what it’s like to be at this stage of disruptive technology, what do we do that’s sustainable, how do we find that, why should you invest in it, is it a good investment, and many more.

Monika Proffitt is a social entrepreneur, speaker and writer working at the nexus of fintech, real estate, and social impact.

She has exhibited the artwork of hundreds of emerging artists, as well as her own, at international art fairs including Art Basel Miami, the Venice Biennale, Worldwide Los Angeles, and Frieze New York. Her new book, Blockchain 101: Fundamentals of a New Economy, is now available on Amazon.
