Badminton, Bearskins, Blockchain and “Bants”.

Mark is back on the (short) road to Blockchain Event town – London – in this episode.

Mark talks with Mick Hagen, founder and CEO of Mainframe, enjoys the build up to the 8pm live physical AirDrop and then gets caught in the frenzy for balloons and plastic tokens (I didn’t get one…)

Mick is one of those fabled creatures who do enormously well in the tech industry – a drop out from a major college. But he’s no Pied Piper of unfulfilled promise.

We chat about Web 3.0, the future of communication on the Blockchain, how we still sense good in the world, distributed teams and distributed technology and why there are still many reasons to be excited by Blockchain.

Picking up the pace, we have got 2 fascinating interviews with Blockchain and Crypto Pioneers in this episode.

In Part 1 – Mark and Ethan talk to Dave Hendrick, Co-Founder of SeriesX and its’s project Vertalo. Dave is a habitual tech innovator.

Vertalo is looking at how Blockchain tech can aid in corporate governance. This is a key area where start-ups can benefit, but also has applications in more established businesses.

In Part 2 (29.00min) – Matthew Sullivan, Founder and CEO of quantmRE tells us how Blockchain and Crypto is disrupting the housing and real estate industry.

The QUANTMRE Network is a Membership based Network built on blockchain technology that facilitates the primary issuance and secondary trading of investment tokens backed by fractional equity interests in single family residences.

And we have many more podcast interviews in the pipeline – this shizzle is getting real!

Scalability is likely that the biggest obstacle to mainstream adoption of decentralized ledgers. Last week, a team of ex-blockchain developers emerged from stealth mode with a unique solution: remove the block from the blockchain.

Enter Constellation. We are joined today by CTO Wyatt Meldman-Floch and Zac Russell the Head of Marketing. 

This team knows the problems of legacy blockchain protocols first hand. Upon experiencing the congestion of the Ethereum blockchain during a previous attempt to build a DApp, they pivoted to build, from the ground up, a platform protocol that relies on a horizontally scalable directed acyclic graph (DAG).

Not only does the Constellation team predict the realization of a transaction throughput several thousand times faster than most blockchains, but they believe they can achieve such speeds without the use of the plutocratic proof-of-stake mechanisms.

Visit Constellationlabs.io where you can learn more about the following:

  • Why scalability is the key to mainstream adoption of decentralized ledgers

  • The reasons why legacy blockchain networks will not be able to upgrade sufficiently

  • The dangers of blockchain plutocracy and the need to make nodes accessible to the layman

As we learn how our data is manipulated by Facebook and their thousands of clients, a Blockchain solution emerges thanks to Brian Gallagher's Insights Network which is launching their app this week. The app allows users to get rewarded in cryptocurrency (INSTAR, Insights' token) for sharing their personal data for things like surveys, instead of it being harvested and sold without their knowledge. With the Facebook data/Cambridge Analytica story and the upcoming GDPR in Europe, the issue of data protection is front and center. Insights Network seeks to give consumers the ability to control and be rewarded for their data.

This episode we are very fortunate to feature two interviews from thought leaders from around the Wide Wide World of Blockchain

We begin with Tricia Martinez, from Wala a South African-based financial company bringing blockchain financial solutions to thousands across Africa and other emerging markets. Mark, Ian and Ethan ask the questions as we hear about the particular challenges facing people in those countries, and how blockchain and cryptocurrency technologies can bring benefit to the developing world just as much as the developed world.

We also feature an interview (at the 29 min mark) between Ian and Blockchain Ambassador, Author, Consultant and all-round Guru, Jamil Hasan  who works with organisations looking to leverage Blockchain technology, pre- and post-ICO.

If you've got a Blockchain problem, and you can find him (which you should be able to...just click the link below) then you can hire...The J Team!
