In the 90’s, the Internet revolutionized the world by re-inventing information, media and telecommunication and media inclusion to the world. People could enjoy and benefit from easy access to digital communication, information, media, entertainment, education, social media, at their fingertips, as it never been happened in history before. Now, another revolution is happening, with momentum at times stronger than the Internet wave. Blockchain will re-invent the financial industry through distributed ledger technologies and brings wealth and status inclusion to the world by further diminishing the boundaries among nations and connect isolated economies. I am very fortunate to have experienced the Internet revolution in the early days of my career, and extremely grateful to be part of the Blockchain revolution now, and to be able to contribute my previous professional experience to help to bring a better future to humanity; through technology, collaboration between communities, and meeting of minds globally.
