The theory of #cryptocurrency, say @libra_ says that because there's #blockchain and no one needs to go through a bank to hold #crypto, there shall be #FinancialInclusion but in reality, inequality in #bitcoin is as bad as in fiat, if not worse...

@Libra_ There are three primary sources of economic inequality in #bitcoin

1. #Bitcoin is obtained via substantial fiat investment in compute
2. #Bitcoin CX is not grandma friendly
3. Value of #bitcoin is determined by fiat exchanges rather than by underlying decentralised commerce
@Libra_ Then there are some secondary sources

1. #bitcoin can't address causes of poverty and financial exclusion that (a) Amartya Sen and Jean Dreze (b) Abhijit Bannerjee et al. have addressed in their Nobel winning research.
2. #Bitcoin does not change social or political incentives

Never underestimate the motives and means to really mess up someone's life and their dreams. #digitalidentity
Also, don't underestimate the value of your #digitalidentity. It is worth much more than a bank account balance or a fraudulent credit card charges.
Those types of financial damages can be remedied. But your future, your dreams, your self-esteem, your confidence can't be easily restored, no matter the assurance provided.
