Blockchain: an opportunity for the third world

Sometimes, the authors of the developed world, and even those of the first world, consider that third world countries are condemned to poverty. Corrupted by corruption, and unable to bring order and prosperity to their populations. Governments in regions like Africa seem unable to generate progress on the continent.

However, those who think that way forget that basically all developed countries were once very poor countries. With practices similar to that of third world countries. And that, nevertheless, they managed to face their internal problems and progress with the passage of time.

Which see the important opportunity represented by this new technology to improve the efficiency of its operation. As well as obtaining greater security in the handling of information.

Finally, it is important to highlight that although the Middle East and Africa region is going through a process of digital transformation, for the update of its administrative procedures. And within which would enter the investment in Blockchain. It continues to be only a small fraction within the large amount dedicated by governments to this task.
