Description

// ABOUT THE EVENT

Experts agree: blockchain technology will disrupt many aspects of our lives. While we often hear about Bitcoin and other “coins”, there are numerous applications of blockchain technology that fall outside of the cryptocurrency realm, including applications for social impact.

There are blockchain solutions designed to enable financial inclusion, optimize energy access, improve education, hack healthcare, track and facilitate aid & development, fight corruption, protect democracy and individual rights, and many others.

At MakeSense Frankfurt, we want to open the dialogue about how these promising solutions based on blockchain technologies can be used for doing good. During this event, you will learn more about concrete use cases and what it means for social entrepreneurs and sense makers.
