The potential and pitfalls of blockchain

Bondcast episode 2

Tuesday, November 27, 2018

There’s been a lot of hype around blockchain. Some say it will revolutionise the way we operate, while others are sceptical of its potential. Now the international development and humanitarian community is beginning to explore how this new technology can be utilised for more effective and transparent activities. 

At Bond, we’ve seen some interesting examples of NGOs using blockchain technology to support the communities they work with overseas. On the second episode of the Bondcast, we debate whether blockhain can bring transparency and empowerment to donors, NGOs and the people they aim to support. In this podcast, Bond's Lena Bheeroo chats to Rhodri Davies, head of policy at Charities Aid Foundation, and Ben Joakim, CEO of blockchain finance system Disberse.
