If that sounds interesting to you, thatís a pretty common experience here.
    Ah yes, blockchain will solve things for PNG and every other undeveloped 4th world country. I've heard the same pitch from countless Uber/Lyft drivers who "work for blockchain startups" but for some reason still need to trade the depreciation of their car for cash. Sounds like some incredible exposure you are getting in your MBA program.

    the bookers thought he was talking about recruiting with the talk titled "headhunting on the blockchain".

    Well it may change nothing, but it also costs PNG absolutely nothing to allow a special economic zone there. Itís an exposure playóif all these blockchain startups are incorporated in PNG, perhaps theyíll look to PNG over other potential nations as a test market, where perhaps some solution will catch on and deliver real value to the nation. Alternatively, PNG can do nothing and continue to experience high levels of corruption. Seems worth the nonexistent risk to me.

    Also, blockchain tends to me more applicable for developing countries, due to the corruption as lack of existing systems. PNG doesnít have a good land rights system so situations arise where multiple people have deeds to the same land. That type of distrust hampers investment because people are worried theyíll lose the land theyíve invested in. Pretty simple fix with blockchain, and thatís just one example.

    How is blockchain encryption a simple fix for a corrupt system of land tenure?
