Tech Intersect #80: Robert Greenfield IV: The Emerging Impact of Crypto and Open Banking in a Decentralized World
Show Notes Chapter Markers

In this episode of Tech Intersect, I chat with Robert Greenfield IV. the President and CEO of Emerging Impact, a benefit corporation that supports major NGOs and government agencies leveraging emerging technology in humanitarian aid and welfare programming.

Together, we explore what it means to leverage blockchain’s distributed ledger technology and cryptocurrencies to modernize financial services in emerging markets, the needs of emerging markets and how the crypto industry might replicate the ills of the current system if it’s not intentional about empowering rather than exploiting, why crypto use is booming in countries like Nigeria despite regulatory bans and the mindset shift required to create generational wealth for marginalized communities not only as investors but also creators.


Are you ready for your advantage?  

With Bitcoin and Ethereum leading the way, the cryptocurrency market is booming. And growing. With over 14,000 different types of crypto (and counting), crypto is a fast-paced, fast moving emerging asset class. Find out what banks, governments, and companies like Paypal don’t want you to know about owning crypto and holding it in your own wallet or self-guided crypto IRA. Bottom line? It’s a wave. And you deserve this opportunity to ride it all the way to financial freedom that leads to economic empowerment and generational wealth.
