Episode 7: Stablecoins and Global Financial Inclusion

Episode 7: Stablecoins and Global Financial Inclusion

The Money Movement

Huge swaths of the global population have mobile devices, but don't participate in the financial system. Stablecoins and the proliferation of digital currencies present an exciting new opportunity for people to connect to a more open and inclusive financial system, creating new economic opportunities for those who have been excluded from the banking sector. 

Live on YouTube @ 1pm EDT Thursday June 11

This week we are joined by several guests who bring a wide range of perspectives on the potential for stablecoins to broaden access to the global financial system for billions of people. We are joined by Harish Natarajan, Lead Financial Sector Specialist on Payments & Market Infrastructures in the Finance, Competitiveness and Innovation Global Practice at World Bank; Danelle Dixon, who is the CEO and Executive Director of the Stellar Foundation, one of the preeminent blockchain projects in the world that is focused on global financial inclusion, and by Tristan Cole, Founder and CEO of Sempo, an innovative startup leveraging stablecoins to power digital money distribution in partnership with leading global NGOs.  

We will dig into the big picture challenges, the technical innovations that stablecoins on public blockchains represent, and a hands-on view of the impact these technologies are having today on people everywhere.

Tune-in and join us live on YouTube on Thursday, June 11 at 1pm EDT, and subscribe on Apple PodcastsSpotify and YouTube.
