Lifting 5 Billion Out Of Poverty  

Predators will always capture, distort, and gangster any central medium of exchange, says Dr. Patrick Byrne, Overstock CEO - which is why blockchain has the potential to defeat global poverty and terrorism.

Byrne set an audacious goal of lifting 5 billion people out of poverty in 5 years, and he inspired the crowd at TNABC to join him with the story of a lone Peruvian economist who brought down the powerful home-grown terrorist group Shining Path - not with guns and bombs - but with a public ledger that liberated the people from their economic chains, thus demonstrating the astonishing potential of blockchain to defeat global poverty & terrorism.
