Digital Currency Ecosystems: Can we leverage them to create financial inclusion at scale?

You voted for this

Libra, Celo, Stellar, Ripple. Join us for a deep dive conversation with these global payment platforms and digital currency creators to explore how these emerging technologies can actually address the needs of those excluded by the formal financial system versus providing just another way to buy a Whopper (Burger King started accepting Bitcoin, but only in Germany). How are they fostering an ecosystem for tech innovators? How can their tech be used? We want to use your live questions and comments to drive a conversation that gets us a step closer to creating a roadmap to an inclusive financial system for the world’s most vulnerable populations.
