When the first human built a wheel 6 or 7,000 years ago, they couldn’t have possibly imagined that..
Of course, it wasn’t possible to imagine almost any of this at the time, but the potential was there.
And in the same way, we can’t fully imagine all of the ways that cryptocurrency – or any other technology – might change our lives. Nonetheless, it’s a question worth asking, perhaps especially if it means that many aspects of finance and other areas of our life might be reinvented.
And in this episode, that’s a lot of what I explore with Bernard Golden.
You might remember Bernard from his brief appearance in episode three, but as a recap, Bernard Golden has been named by Wired Magazine as one of the ten most influential people in cloud computing, he regularly keynotes at conferences around the world, and he’s led several Silicon Valley tech companies as CEO or executive for nearly 2 decades. But over the past couple years – he’s turned his attention largely to cryptocurrency and blockchain, which he describes as “the next innovation platform that will transform our society”.
