In this episode, I’m joined by blockchain expert/consultant Alex Preukschat to discuss what the near future holds in store for us. Blockchains promise to revolutionize our lives in a big way, simplifying many of our daily administrative chores and making things like wire transfers super cheap and fast. There are countless applications for blockchains, and they will probably change the internet as we know it.
If you’ve never heard of blockchains, you’ll probably have heard of Bitcoin or other cryptocurrencies, which are all based on blockchain technology. Blockchains are the backbone of any crypto token. If you have any interest in this space, this is definitely one episode you don’t want to miss. Even if you have never heard of these topics and don’t really have an interest, I still recommend you give this a listen, as whether you like it or not this will be a big topic in the near future, so it’s best to know more about it.
