Our guest today is Sloane Trugman, an advisor and activist in blockchain. Sloane focuses her work on social impact and believes that blockchain can assist in solving the 17 sustainable goals that the UN intends to fix by 2030. She explains that cryptocurrency functions better than fiat in trying to solve global issues because crypto does not belong to any of the current geo-political economies; it lies outside of the current practiced industries.
