"It was extremely difficult to create new books before the invention of the printing press. It was expensive and unsystematic. After the printing press, disseminating new books across the world became much simpler. The prices of books dropped and more people started reading. It’s the same way with the financial market today... It’s kind of like a world where there is only a couple hundred books, it’s not nearly as interesting as it could be." —Joey Krug
Distributed Dialogues is a collaborative show between the Let’s Talk Bitcoin Network and Distributed magazine. In each episode we introduce you to people who are using blockchain technology to change the way we interact with the world around us.
What if you could make money trading on the outcome of the next presidential election? How would one go about selling rental properties, TV shows or oil through a blockchain? And what exactly does it mean to be leading the race towards enterprise adoption of blockchain technology? As people begin to look at the many ways that blockchain technology can change the way we interact with the world, they begin to see opportunity.
New markets can grow fast, exceptionally so. But the risk of entering a new market can be profoundly underestimated. No matter how good a company, team or project is, if demand does not emerge at the speed and size predicted, success might be unattainable.
In this episode we run the business gamut, hearing from both new ventures in the crypto space, including the team at Augur, crypto’s best-known decentralized prediction market, and new moves by an older tech giant interacting with the Blockchain space. In between, we speak with Trust Token, a project that allows for the tokenization of real-world assets.
Guests include Eileen Lowry of IBM, Jeremy Gardner and Joey Krug of Augur, and Rafael Cosman of TrustToken.
