“Countries are moving towards knowledge as their main source of income because we can’t rely, as a mining country or an oil country, just on our natural resources. We need to definitely take into account how technology is going to be part of the new Venezuela that we’re going to rebuild once this ends.”
Welcome to Season Two of Distributed Dialogues. This season was inspired by the Human Rights Foundation’s Oslo Freedom Forum, focusing on the intersection between human rights and decentralized technology. In each episode we’ll tell stories where basic human rights have been jeopardized, then present ways in which decentralized technology might serve as a tool for overcoming these challenges.
This episode is called ‘œThe Devil’s Excrement’; in it, we bring you the reality of Venezuela’s authoritarian government, what life is like under the veil, and what promises crypto may hold to unlocking a brighter future.
