Can Blockchain Technology Change The World For The Better?
Blockchain is a relatively new technology that is set to disrupt the financial services industry. It has already begun to revolutionize the way in which we transfer money and share information online. Blockchain technology can be used for so much more than just cryptocurrency. In fact, it can provide many opportunities for developing communities around the world by allowing them to build their own financial systems.
With the widespread adoption of blockchain technology, there is a growing interest in how this new technology can be used to help poor and impoverished communities. The idea of using blockchain to help impoverished people has become an important topic given the fact that most developing countries have poor infrastructure. Blockchain technology has the potential to drastically improve the infrastructure of developing countries, especially when it comes to their financial systems.
Blockchain can help many people who live in these countries gain access to financial services that they have never had before. It can also help governments and community leaders to more effectively manage their resources and improve the conditions for their citizens.
One example of this is Firefly, an alternative education platform designed to provide access to learning opportunities for students of all ages and skill levels through a decentralized blockchain-based infrastructure and network. Firefly provides a one of a kind educational experience for homeschool families. Acting as an extension of the homeschool dynamic, Firefly does not seek to take over the education provided by the family unit. Instead Firefly provides support, curriculum guidance, life skills and adventure education, in addition to a blockchain-based cryptocurrency component that rewards students for mastering content through the native token, which can be exchanged for other forms of cryptocurrency and USD.
One community leader in Washington, Mike Smart, aims to utilize blockchain technology among other various forms of forward, outside of the box techniques in order to develop self sustaining ecosystems in places stricken by poverty and gentrification. One of the steps Mike Smart is taking to help support communities internally is through a form of redistribution of wealth via Smart Digital Payments llc.
Smart Digital Payments helps overcharged and underserved businesses reduce expenses on payment processing , including cryptocurrencies, while increasing revenue from sales with the added benefit of empowering those marginalized in our communities. The company focuses on real world problems by redistributing resources that would have otherwise been squandered and using them instead, to empower poor and impoverished communities that need it the most.
Smart Digital Payments’s plan for the partnership with Randal Wyatt is to help TOPDX find businesses within the area that their organization serves in Portland Oregon, save the businesses money in credit card processing, turning a portion of the financial obligation over to the customers. Smart Digital Payments then use a % of the profits to empower Taking ownership pdx in their mission to improve these areas at no additional cost to the home owners.
When asked about his reasons for partnering with TOPDX Mike Smart Stated:
“What sparked this idea was witnessing the wonderful things Randal was already doing to help his community. I wanted to find a way that we could help Taking Ownership PDX receive steady funding to continue their mission without the added stresses and time burden of constant outreach for funding.”
Taking Ownership PDX, LLC., is a small-but-mighty community collective of contractors, realtors, neighbors, and businesses brought together by Portland musician, activist Randal Wyatt.
“Together we renovate and revive Black-owned homes that have requested our help, with an emphasis on enabling Black homeowners to age in place, generate wealth and simultaneously deter predatory investors and realtors to deflect the gentrification process.” Randal Wyatt

While SDP is proud to stand as an ally to the black community on sensitive issues such as race inequality and gentrification, the company also understands that these aren’t the only issues plaguing society today. So why stop there?
Smart Digital Payments has also partnered with the Capes Project.
C.A.P.E.S. stands for Creative Association of Peacefully Empowered Superheroes.
C.A.P.E.S. is the story of 3 young adults who want to positively impact the world and their community through collaboration, participating in art contests, collecting NFTs…
C.A.P.E.S. is about players and their superheroes from 3 factions (the spiritualists, the industrialists, the technologists) uniting to solve Earth Challenges and, at the same time, support charities in the “real” world.
Similar to the the C.A.P.E.S project NFT’s, Smart Digital Payments uses blockchain technology through their NFT project SDP OWLS to make a difference. SDP OWLS were originally created as a digital representation of each philanthropic effort that is supported within the SDP ecosystem. They are a fun way for those who like to support Smart Digital Payments’ many causes, to be able to enjoy a digital collectible backed by cryptographic code and have the potential ( no guarantee) to enjoy a ROI on their donation through the increased value of the NFTs over time.
Efforts that SDP OWLS support thus far are:
A great tool for the blockchain to utilize to assist with the success of these types of endeavors is the Metaverse. Smart Digital Payments has also invested a ton of time and resources into a Metaverse project called The Uplift World.
Read more about it in The Uplift Blog
"The Uplift" is based on the Uplift.Art principle to create a winning scenario for everyone. In this case: Every visitor, player, builder, creator or trader of NFTs. Everything is interconnected. Founded on positivity and collaboration, every participant can lift others up in a win-win upward spiral. The Uplift World wants everyone to win in terms of fun, creativity, meaningful connections and experiences, but also in "material" crypto or NFT rewards for being awesome and contributing to the whole. As an example, Uplift.Art gives a big chunk of its revenue to creators, users and, most importantly up to 50% to selected charitable projects that need funding to make the world a better place.
