Awesome, but a different part of my Venture Studio, the things that we work on and do, will be heavily involved in building actual applications to do things like banking the unbanked. John O'Connor's company, for example, the RealFi initiative in Kenya, allows me to wake up and have a Kiva-like experience but do it on my phone and use a stable coin and a blockchain to do that, as opposed to...
Has IOHK or Emurgo or CF employed or hired anyone from Africa who can assist in regulation planning?

And we're glad to see that there is still some innovation there. We still do learn from ideas that Blockstream has presented. Russell O'Connor's work on simplicity, for example, was very elegant and really helped us think through some ideas about Plutus. We would hope that the Bitcoin core developers take some of our work more seriously, in particular, work on sidechains, and in particular our work on UTXO wallet design.
We'll probably do a pilot with that team and something involving supply chain management with coffee production. It's a great, really low hanging fruit, amazing industry to think about, and there's a lot of return there which could touch pretty much everything from micro insurance to microfinance to a lot of aggrotech revolutions. Some IoT stuff, some AI stuff, and so forth. So that's going to be a fun jurisdiction to plan and we have some great partners on the ground and John O'Connor will make some community updates at some point about progress that's been made.
