Lucius Gregory Meredith, chief technology officer at Synereo is a mathematician and cryptocurrency expert. The Synereo platform began as a decentralized social network but out of a need for smart contracts, high scalability, and concurrent transactions, the project has become something much more than a replacement for facebook. Greg’s work is fascinating and novel, and frankly I don’t do it justice in this interview. Interested listeners should follow up on the provided links. What lead me to Synereo however was not the tech, but the idea that conversations about the direction of development could be conducted by users, on the platform in question itself. This would filter the noise of open forums like Reddit and Twitter, where uninvolved parties have equal voice.
After we’ve heard from Greg, Jake Brukhman of CoinFund discusses investment in the cryptocurrency space. The CoinFund blog is one of the most insightful and impartial out there, driven by the research their team conducts. We occasionally syndicate CoinFund content on ConsenSys Media - it’s definitely worth a read.
