Eating away at the corruption, and without the capacity to give order and prosperity to their populations. Governments in regions such as Africa seems unable to generate progress in the continent. However, those who think that way are forgetting that basically all developed countries were once very poor countries. With practices similar to those of the countries of the third world. And that, however, were able to face their internal problems and progress with the passage of time. This is the opportunity that the technology Blockchain would be offering to the countries of the Middle East and Africa. Therefore, the chains of blocks, represent a technology that is disruptive.
