Last Week on Blockleaders

Reading Time: 2 minutes

This week was dominated by the theme of social impact. Our Blockleaders are amazing individuals who use the blockchain to make a difference and bring a positive change to our world.

Monday started with reworking the world of Venture Capitalism, and by the end of the week, we covered how to revolutionise voting. Our journey took us through changing world registries, using compassion as a force of change, and building a new world basic income.

Here are the people we met this week:
