The Bitcoin Game #30: The Biggest Blockchain Company You've Never Heard Of

Published on November 19th, 2015 by Rob


Hello, welcome to episode 30 of The Bitcoin Game. I'm Rob Mitchell.

What’s the oldest blockchain company you can think of? What if I told you a Blockchain company in Estonia called Guardtime was founded before the Bitcoin white paper was released? And what if I told you they are now a highly profitable company, doing large amounts of business with government, the world’s largest defense contractor, and a multinational communication technology company?

I only found out about Guardtime, thanks to Bitcoin journalist Brian Cohen. I was blown away as I learned about the company, because it appears my understanding of the landscape and history of blockchain technology had been flawed.

I immediately requested an interview, and Guardtime’s founder and CEO Mike Gault responded promptly. We set up an interview with Jamie Steiner, Guardtime’s director of business development. I hope you enjoy this interview.
