Using Blockchain Technology to Clean Up the Niger Delta

With SI, we give each citizen the choice to put down their guns and pick up their cell phones – giving up bullets and picking up Bitcoin.’ This transforms each person from economic prisoner into an entrepreneur, who earns a living by doing good for their community and their local environment.
