Michael is the Founder and CEO of Lightstreams, a blockchain protocol for greater dApp speed and privacy.

He takes issue with the hype surrounding blockchain technology as a one-size-fits-all approach, and believes that we should view distributed ledgers as part of a suite of complementary technologies that can be used to usher in the advent of a decentralized internet. Central to this belief is the need for a combination of distributed off-chain storage, to enable cheap storage of files and privacy that is otherwise non-existent on a public ledger.

Anita Schjøll Brede is CEO of Iris.ai - the company using AI to help speed up the research process for academic and corporate R&D – which has recently launched its Project Aiur. This is the project that will use AI and Blockchain to allow scientists to semi-automate the time-consuming process of checking the factual base of any research hypothesis.

The goal of Project Aiur is to liberate researchers and academics from a publishing system of misaligned incentives that encourages them to exaggerate facts and omit assumptions as they are told to produce quantity of research over quality. As it stands such practices are deemed acceptable in an industry that lacks accountability and is driven solely by profit rather than a commitment to the betterment of scientific progress.

In his second book, "The Age of Anomaly" Andrei Polgar predicts the next global financial crisis. The worst part is, the average person will most likely be blindsided due to a complete lack of basic financial preparedness.
 
Andrei is one of the few economists out there who specializes in
exotic assets such as domain names (perhaps the only economist who covered the short domain mania of 2015-2016) and, of course, crypto. http://oneminuteeconomics.com/
 
Blockchain Show co-hosts Ian Collins and Ethan discuss topics such as cryptocurrencies and Blockchain in the context of the
next global financial crisis.

Decentralized ledgers are secure and unbreakable until…. quantum computing. The Quantum Supremacy race between China, USA and Europe is on…Quantum computers are coming faster than anticipated.

Adam Koltun, Evangelist for the Quantum Resistant Ledger and Co-Hosts Ian and Ethan discuss the Quantum technology threat and security challenges for distributed ledgers and what it means for the current cryptocurrency landscape.

 
  • The reality of a adding Quantum resistance to existing blockchains. (Hint: It is easier to implement changes in the initial codebase than to add them later.)

  • We don’t need (should not) to wait for Quantum Supremacy

  • A single actor could disrupt the cryptocurrency economy at any time

  • Companies are making a lot of public progress / while Government programs have likely made more progress than they advertise

  • Upgrading in cryptocurrency is not easy. BTC is an example of political struggles

  • The future quantum resistant ledger

Robin is the co-founder and CEO of HelloGold. HelloGold is a start-up that creates simple and accessible Gold products for everyone. Founded in 2015 and headquartered in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, HelloGold built the world’s first Shariah compliant gold digital application that changes the way you buy and sell gold.

Once the digital gold tokens (GBT) are successfully traded on exchanges, the tokens will be available for purchase. This will create a stable cryptocurrency fully backed by physical investment grade gold. Further information about HelloGold can be found at www.hellogold.com.
