In late April I had the privilege to sit down with the highly decorated Dr. Jane Thomason. Dr. Thomason is the Chief Inspiration Officer at fintech.tv, Industry Associate at The Centre for Blockchain Technology, and FinTech Speaker/Advisor. In our chat, she provides her crypto origin story which includes her son buying into Bitcoin at ten cents back in 2010. She explains how all the pieces clicked for her with crypto when remembering the relief response to the 2004 Boxing Day Tsunami disaster and how blockchain could help with providing transparency and better direction in distributing resources far more effectively during disasters. Thomason weighs in on some of the crypto/blockchain projects currently providing a service to humanity by means of aiding in various humanitarian projects; highlighting some of the potential Electroneum offers as well as opportunities to improve. She goes into several other topics as well, including how countries are acting quickly to capitalize on the potential that blockchain/crypto offers for them in the road ahead. Check out the interview here and be sure to let us know what you think on Twitter.
