RightMesh features in film exploring the technology that is helping solve world hunger, the refugee crisis and income inequality.
MAPLE RIDGE, ON, March 7, 2019 /CNW/ - Alex Winter's TRUST MACHINE: THE STORY OF BLOCKCHAIN will premiere in Canada on Monday, March 11th at 4:30pm at Cineplex Odeon - International Village Cinemas (88 West Pender Street). Tickets are available online on Eventbrite.
Award winning filmmaker Alex Winter (Deep Web, Downloaded) drills down on blockchain, the decentralized technology that supports cryptocurrencies. Why are banks terrified while UNICEF Ventures embraces it to help refugee children? Through the film, Winter reveals that the proponents of the blockchain—a verified digital ledger—are already using the technology to change the world; fighting income inequality, the refugee crisis and world hunger. The film is narrated by Rosario Dawson.
John Lyotier, Maple-Ridge based CEO of RightMesh, is featured in the film explaining how RightMesh's mobile mesh networks are necessary for blockchain to ever take hold globally: "The network RightMesh is developing to connect the world's 3.9 billion unconnected people to the wider world and enable them to participate in the market and the economic system surpasses any other current or proposed use for blockchain." Lyotier will be speaking more about this topic on the panel discussion, 'Combating Global Poverty on the Blockchain' at SXSW in Austin Texas on March 16.
