The only way to support a revolution is to make your own

Coinmonks’ weekly letter — 05

I live in India where currently 493 million people using internet, everyone has smart phones and data(3G/4G) cost is less then 2$/month. Indians need lot of basic financial education, so we can have financial inclusion of 1.3 billion people, here everyone is getting a bank account now and there are TV ads about mutual funds everywhere. In my view, India should leapfrog this financial revolution with the help crypto.

When people don’t know how to fill a bank deposit form but know how to operate a smart phone. You should rethink all the fundamental systems in place.

Now let’s jump on this week’s highlights. 👇

  • BlackRock Exploring Crypto
  • Messaging Giant LINE’s Cryptocurrency Exchange Begins Global Operations
  • Thiel and Bitmain Lead Investment Round in Block.One
  • Microsoft asks the U.S. Congress to regulate face recognition.
