How can we use blockchain technology for social good?


Blockchain and other Distributed Ledger Technologies (DLTs) have disruptive potential beyond transforming the way industry records and manages transactions (by leveraging a shared and verified database of ledgers in a distributed manner).

By providing transparency and accountability in new and distributed ways, blockchain technologies have the potential to empower underserved populations in myriad ways – including the establishment of trusted digital identities.

In other words, blockchain technologies can promote positive Social Change: Blockchange.


Blockchange is an initiative of the NYU GovLab with support from the Rockefeller Foundation.
