b_verify: a blockchain prototype for SME finance

Passionate about financial inclusion, Mark has spent two years at the MIT Digital Currency Initiative researching and prototyping alternative credit systems for small-medium enterprises (SMEs) in emerging markets. Through a knowledge-sharing partnership with the Mexican Government and the Inter-American Development Bank, Mark envisioned and led the development of the "b_verify" prototype for blockchain verifiable claims for agricultural financing (academic papers and open-source code forthcoming).

 The b_verify team performs a live demo of the first software prototype for the Inter-American Development Bank.
