Today’s databases are vulnerable, fragmented, and expensive to maintain. In a world where everything and everyone is connected to the internet and where user data is maliciously used as a form of political currency, asset tokenization, and decentralized ledger technology (DLT). Blockchain middleware solutions help individuals and businesses to benefit from the unlocked value that interoperability and improved transparency may offer in our increasingly open society in need of a focus on stakeholder capitalism.
It is estimated that nearly 50% of the world’s 1.7B unbanked population own a smartphone or other smart device. Innovation in open banking and decentralized finance allows anyone with an internet connection to trade new classes of assets and utilize complex financial instruments that are revolutionizing financial markets in real time. Decentralized exchanges, allowing citizens around the world to trade digital assets without any intermediary, and the tokenization (and fractionalization) of traditional assets, such as real estate and other traditional equity investments, truly demonstrate the opportunity for internet users.
Keith D Smith has a deep passion for the potential democratization of financial services and the internet by the decentralized autonomous organization (DAO), and the tokenization of traditional financial assets drives him daily to learn how to help deliver a world where power rests at the fingertips of the people.
