Key Takeaways:

I saw an opportunity for blockchain to really reshape the telco business model and present new opportunities. - David
So blockchain as a centre for trust and transaction settlement made a lot of sense. That is now live, so that was one of the proof of concepts. - David
I'm a founder, innovator of, it's called the digital asset broker. This one was slightly different because it wasn't just using blockchain for trust, it was really using blockchain to create a whole new business for IoT devices. - David
There is a blockchain based solution out there which has been implemented with some of the biggest companies in mobility in the world. And energy and Web3 and blockchain are a key component of that. - David
 I think services around identity are gonna be absolutely critical and a massive business opportunity. - David
There's millions of people who are in poverty, millions of people who don't have access to business or a career or jobs or career paths. And It would be really exciting to see Web3 fill that void. - David
