I've mentioned earlier this week the value of blockchain can be realized by focusing on business need (not the tech) and effective public/private partnerships. Here's a perfect example - bring banking capabilities to people who don't have access to them, and have the government (who can reach them) participate. 

Malaysia, one of the most populous countries in the world, is partnering with the private sector to do exactly that. If more people across the world can access banking and financing tools, more economic growth at scale can happen. Still early days, but a trend worth watching . . .
