People often talk about potential uses of cryptocurrency to help the underbanked in Africa, Asia, and Latin America, but what about the Caribbean? Back during Consensus, I met with Oliver and was fascinated by his work in Barbados and other islands. There are some unique opportunities specific to the region that offer real world utility and even a stable coin! Are you as intrigued as I was? Tune into this episode of the Tatiana Show and learn more about the innovation at Bitt and the work they are doing in partnership with the local central banks and the government. No matter where you are on the political spectrum, one has to applaud the forward thinking policies that can give a competitive edge to some of the smaller countries in the world stage.
As a bonus, here is a cool music video by Oliver, really fun! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3QIjz4k-8vI
