On the last episode of the year, we invite Augur director of marketing Tony Sakich, on the show who has a sophisticated focused approach on what makes the blockchain network marketing profession....professional. Augur is an open source decentralized prediction market platform built on blockchain technology similar to Bitcoin called Ethereum. Tony introduces blockchain technology and the Ethereum platform, his background, past successes in the decentralized technology space and the future of the industry. Also, shout out to all the Street Fighter players who select Blanka!
Every day we buy products that impact our planet. Every product and business is different, but rarely do we have the information we need to make positive choices about what to buy. Enter, Jessi Baker, the founder of Provenance, which is building on the blockchain that presents a paradigm shift for business and society: from one where you need to generate trust in your brand and product, to one where trust can be implicit. Is there anything bitcoin can't do? Holy cow. This week we get her on the show to chat about the importance of supply chain transparency.
Every 10th episode we get together with some friends, drink drinks, and chat about bitcoin. Enjoy all the benefits of pouring a nice adult beverage into a functionally designed vessel of your choice, whilst chatting about finance, all without the repercussions, like the frequent 24-hour hangovers, the unsafe hook-ups, etc. Our homie Andrew joins us on the show who has NO CLUE what bitcoin is. We educate him and Marcello has to defend himself on why knowing the identity of the probable creator of bitcoin is important. Remember, sweetness is perceived more on the tongue than in the nose, so press play and drink us in, folks.
If you use Bitcoin, you definitely know that Bitcoin needs to become more practical. It’s great for cross border transactions but it doesn’t seem ready for the mainstream. What if I told you there was a way to buy things with bitcoin without having to wait for merchants to accept Bitcoin? That's right, Tap & Pay using Bitcoin at any NFC-enabled point-of-sale terminal on the planet, with Plutus, suckas! Feel like you're in a dream? Well let us pinch you! This is why it’s time for a new era of payments. Plutus merges both blockchain technology and existing international NFC infrastructure to bring contactless Bitcoin payments into the mainstream. CEO of Plutus, Filip Martinka, stops by to let you know how the revolution will be televised. We also name our Bitcoin MVP of 2015 award.
