Imagine the gains in prosperity if farmers in developing countries could access capital at the same cost as those in developed ones. Blockchain and digital currency technology can create huge economic gains that way by including everyone — but only if it’s done right.

Sweetbridge Alliance is an open source foundation that’s “all about protocols for prosperity.” It wants to create a stable-value token and other blockchain-based applications to provide the financial inclusion necessary to make that prosperity happen.
Blockchain is global but the U.S. has been a historic leader across many technology industry sectors. That’s why it’s imperative for Americans to innovate and lead the way with good policy.
But it will miss a golden opportunity, McGary says, if it doesn’t support the blockchain industry’s good actors. To spread that word, he and his team have met with Congress members and representatives from the U.S. Treasury, Chamber of Commerce and others in recent times.
