Guest Interview:
Some of the topics that we cover in our chat with Melanie include:
  • Blockchain as a software protocol that tells the web how to send assets and ensure that only one copy of that asset is transferred.
  • Phase 2 and 3 of the Blockchain and how quickly they are being adopted.
  • How Blockchain technology is being applied in different industries.
  • We ask the question: ‘Is Blockchain technology as significant as the printing press and the internet? Or is it all hype?’
  • Reflecting on the 1st era of information transfer (the internet as we know it) and comparing it to the 2nd era of value transfer.
  • Why Government and Economics have not been disrupted by the internet yet.
  • Technology as an enabler - How the Blockchain could free millions of people from poverty overnight.
  • The role of the Blockchain in Autonomous Systems (ie: self driving cars).
  • We look at assets as a service and how the blockchain could shift human desire for ownership by eliminating uncertainties about the future.
  • How Melanie got into the Blockchain and Cryptocurrency space.
