Sludgefeed: Blockchain and the Rohingya Crisis

Blockchain should be used for good. It’s a beautiful idea. Satoshi would have wanted that. But the endless ICOs, pump-and-dumps, and get-rich-quick-schemes are not helping society. They are enriching the few at the expense of unfortunate investors.

This selfishness is especially frustrating while a genocide has been occurring in Southeast Asia. The persecution and ethnic cleansing of the Rohingya people is a serious issue. Fortunately, some people are trying to use blockchain technology to help refugees, in more innovative ways than just cheap remittances.
