Too Long; Didn't Read

After two years of frontier knife-fighting, or for what passes as business in the West Africa, I returned to the U.S. seeking financial and green energy solutions for the complex needs of sub-Saharan Africa. My path took me from Seattle, Phoenix, San Diego, and Los Angeles — to the posh heights of San Francisco. I soon learned how the <a href="https://hackernoon.com/tagged/blockchain" target="_blank">Blockchain</a> can create localized economies, offering a tool that can place value on resources readily available to anyone anywhere. This new technology serves as an economic model that side-steps many of the obstacles facing Africans’ capacity to build the next generation of energy infrastructure. As I traveled down the new logic lines the Blockchain revealed, I came across the next evolution of decentralization.
