区块链适用案例:解决非洲地区腐败等社会问题

基础设施匮乏是非洲和世界上其他发展中地区面临的主要问题。

不仅是技术因素阻碍了上述地区基础设施发展,人为干扰也是抑制其发展速度的关键因素。

XinFin非洲区经理Afrikanus Kofi Akosah Adusei强调,非洲基础设施发展状况令人堪忧:

“全球有超过三百万人无法使用电力,将近一百万人无法获得清洁水。我们的使命是为投资者提供激励,鼓励他们投资于这类低收益的项目。”

2017年7月22日星期六,Afrikanus在赞比亚举行的一次会议上作此声明,会议上约有40名来自非洲的企业家聚集在一起,了解该公司如何使用区块链在全球范围内提供低成本的基础设施融资。

腐败阻碍发展

各种繁琐的官僚制度和流程,以及人为的刻意的阻挠,使得合同的签订和执行环节成为发展中国家基础设施发展的重大瓶颈。

各级腐败通常导致合同金额庞大,然而大多数发展中国家的收入很低。除了其他因素外,腐败因素导致了非洲和世界其他地区的发展受到阻碍,经济增速缓慢。

解决社会问题

非洲等地区基础设施发展的主要障碍之一是缺乏透明的合同流程。考虑到区块链以透明性和不可篡改性作为其基本特征,使用这一系统后,可以预期以贿赂和资金转移形式进行的腐败将成为过去式。

另一个区块链公司Bitland目前也在试图改革非洲传统基础设施。在Bitland的适用案例中,通常能展现大众文化的房地产业,引入了革命性的库存清单系统。

这种解决方案有望通过消除中间商服务,以低成本的方式转让或交易房地产。但最重要的是,设立一个不可篡改的、透明的登记处预计将大大减少以前常见的土地纠纷,特别是当地人之间的这种土地纠纷曾造成许多社会危机和伤亡事件。

教育先行

尽管这些公司在上述几个方面已经取得了进步,但是非洲区块链革命仍需要做大量工作,其中一个根本方面就是教育。

大多数这些可观的项目的潜在收益是不能否认的。然而,项目总是假设这些产品的预期消费者自然会与改革的步调保持一致,这对于当地人而言要求过高。

因此,解决方案供应商应经常组织定期的、密集的视频群聊、研讨会和概念宣传计划,这是至关重要的。

非洲的发展空间是巨大的。公民也很好奇,渴望拥抱具有潜在收益的技术进步。但是,我们不能本末倒置。区块链教育是非常有必要的。

Inadequate infrastructure is a major problem faced by Africa and other developing parts of the world.

Besides the technical implications that have hindered the infrastructural development of the aforementioned parts of the world, human interference is also key in slowing down their rates of development.

Afrikanus Kofi Akosah Adusei, acting Africa community manager of XinFin, emphasizes the poor state of infrastructural development in Africa:

"Globally there are more than three mln people without electricity and almost a million without access to clean water. Our mission is to create incentives for financiers and encourage them to finance low profile projects."

The statement was made at a meeting held on Saturday, July 22, 2017 in Zambia, where about 40 African business men and women came together to learn how the company is using the Blockchain to provide low-cost infrastructure financing around the world.

Corruption hinders development

Cases of tedious bureaucratic procedures, coupled with deliberate human obstructions make the award and execution of contracts a major bottleneck towards infrastructural development in developing countries.

Allegations of corruption at various levels usually lead to inflation of contracts despite the low revenues of most of these developing countries. This and many more factors have been responsible for various setbacks and the slow development in Africa and other parts of the world.

Solving social problems

One of the major obstacles that have hindered infrastructural development in regions like Africa is the absence of transparent contract procedures. Considering the characteristics of the Blockchain, with transparency and immutability as fundamental properties, it is expected that corruption in the form of bribery and diversion of funds would become a thing of the past using such systems.

Another Blockchain company that is currently disrupting traditional infrastructural processes in Africa is Bitland. In the case of Bitland, real estate which is usually a cultural aspect of the people is introduced into a revolutionary system of inventory.

This solution is expected to bring along a cost effective way of transfer or trading of landed properties, by eliminating the services of middlemen. But most importantly, the opportunity of opening up an immutable and transparent registry is expected to significantly reduce the erstwhile common land disputes which have been responsible for so many social crises and deaths, especially among natives.

Education first

Despite the progress made by these companies among several others, one fundamental aspect of Blockchain revolution in Africa where a lot of work needs to be done is education.

The promise upheld by most of these beautiful projects cannot be denied. However, assuming that the expected consumers of such products will naturally align with such disruption may be asking too much from the people.

Therefore, it is essential that regular and intensive hangouts, seminars and deliberate awareness programs be organized very often by solution vendors.

The room for development in Africa is enormous. The citizens are also curious and eager to embrace the promise laden technological advancement. However, the horse must be put before the cart. Blockchain education is very necessary.
