Crypto Across Emerging Markets With Leigh Cuen

Some people believe emerging markets will benefit more from the rise of cryptocurrency than populations with access to both Silicon Valley and Wall Street. But is that theory playing out on the ground? CoinDesk’s Leigh Cuen and co-host Lucía Gallardo hosted a program on this subject during Consensus: Distributed. Guests Christina Lomazzo of UNICEF, rapper Akon, Akoin project co-founder Jon Karas of Akoin and Paxful CEO Ray Youssef explored what cryptocurrency trends really do look like in emerging markets.
