Over the years, my views on blockchain have changed rather drastically.
In the beginning, I was filled with enthusiasm for the technology and its potential to “revolutionize everything” – whatever that meant. Nevertheless, the more I worked on trying to apply it to the real world, the warier I became of its unintended consequences. The idea of vulnerable populations, such as refugees and internally displaced people, becoming testing grounds for this technology, with little to no regard for their safety, was particularly enraging to me.
