The potential and pitfalls of blockchain

There’s been a lot of hype around blockchain. Some say it will revolutionise the way we operate, while others are sceptical of its potential. Now the international development and humanitarian community is beginning to explore how this new technology can be utilised for more effective and transparent activities.

In this podcast, we debate whether blockhain can bring transparency and empowerment to donors, NGOs and the people they aim to support. Bond's Lena Bheeroo chats to Rhodri Davies, head of policy at Charities Aid Foundation, and Ben Joakim, CEO of blockchain finance system Disberse.
