The talk starts with an introduction of human society development and different forms of control and social organisation. Afterwards it shows some of the most economical critical moments in human life to expose some of the bad economic policies destroy our standards of living as in the case of Venezuela, where we recently experienced more than 2 million percent inflation rate during 2018. Finally we dive into the new emerging economies and their impact in the Venezuelan and Latin American context.

Self-Sovereign Identity (SSI) has been an increasingly hot topic following the rise of blockchain technology. The ability to regain control over our personal data and have the autonomy on sharing what we want with whom (without even having to disclose this personal data), has gathered immense appeal from governmental organisations to financial instutions. But what about the 1.7bn people currently socio-economically excluded? That is the problem Tykn is aiming to solve.
The world is full of failed projects built on great intentions and exciting tech. Meeting a need and making sure users recognise their solution is vital. An experience designed to show the user you know her wants and needs and that you have shared values and intention will bring her to the tech. UX is the art of design for emotion, of turning a casual visitor into your brand ambassador.
