The social economy or social and solidarity economy (SSE) refers, in the French-speaking context, to the branch of the economy grouping private organizations (companies, cooperatives, associations, mutuals or foundations) seeking to reconcile economic activity and social equity.
From fair trade to solidarity savings, through social innovations in the field of environmental protection, the fight against exclusion, health or equal opportunities, the ESS brings a response to many contemporary social issues

The economy, a tool for reclaiming the sovereignty of disadvantaged countries
Indeed, the “nerve of war” in the capitalism system that rules the world is the economy. Demonstrations and other popular movements have a limited geographical impact, there should be demonstrations all over the world at the same time with a common goal to put an end to social injustices.
According to the Oxfam report, a Non Governmental Organization (NGO) published at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland:
“To put an end to the crisis of inequality, it is essential to build the economy around ordinary citizens, not the rich and the powerful. “
You will see for yourself the extent and impact of social inequalities consulting this report, there are many statistics that I prefer to save you so I selected an eloquent extract of their summary article:
“The number of billionaires last year saw its biggest rise in history, with a new billionaire every other day. This incredible boom is equivalent to seven times the amount that would put an end to extreme poverty in the world. 82% of wealth created in the world last year benefited the richest 1%, while the situation has not changed for the poorest 50%. “
Definitions of the technical terms addressed:
* Blockchain: A (or a) blockchain, or chain of blocks, is a technology of storage and transmission of information without control organ. Technically, it is a distributed database whose information sent by users and internal links to the database are checked and grouped at regular time intervals in blocks, the whole being secured by cryptography, and thus forming chain. By extension, a blockchain is a distributed database that maintains a list of records protected from falsification or modification by storage nodes; it is therefore a distributed and secure register of all the transactions made since the start of the distributed system.
* Devop: Devops is a movement in computer engineering and technical practice aimed at unifying software development (dev) and computer infrastructure management (ops), including system administration.
Appeared around 2010, the Devops movement is mainly characterized by the promotion of automation and monitoring (monitoring) of all stages of the creation of software, from development, integration, testing, delivery up to deployment, operation and maintenance of infrastructure. Devops Principles Support Shorter Development Cycles, Increased Frequency of Deployments and Continuous Deliveries to Better Achieve Business Goals.
