Quotes from Charles d’Haussy

“We help them build infrastructure built on blockchain which is really affordable and to help them to provide more financial services to the rural community. This is where the technology really helps enable the people and the part of society that are underserved.”

“What blockchain brings is a higher level of confidence that whenever you do a donation for a charity you will have the possibility of knowing where the money is going, leading to total transparency.”
