During our recent visit to Starfish Mission, we spoke to some of the most impressive and innovative blockchain startups coming to market today. One of those was Lumeos.IO whose founder and CEO Ali Ayash gave us the scoop on how the company plans to use its blockchain technology to allow individuals to protect and monetize their own data and earn Lumeos tokens in the process.
This conversation was another enlightening view into the future and infinite possibilities blockchain technology offers. Ali’s mission to empower us to own and monetize our own data has the power to truly revolutionize the way people make passion income. Have a listen here and you can check them out on their site and social channels, Facebook, Twitter and Telegram.
We spent some quality time recently at Starfish Mission, and got to speak to co-founder Matt Quinn and core team member Jon Connors about their work. Starfish originally opened as a coworking space to serve the blockchain community, but it has quickly evolved into an innovation hub for blockchain projects of all kinds.
This was one of the more colorful conversations we’ve had with the juxtaposition of Jon Connors, a proud and self-proclaimed Anarchist (he even has a tattoo!) with the more diplomatic and soft-spoken Matt Quinn. Starfish’s other co-founder Alicia could not join us, but we look forward to bringing her on at a future date.
Paul Hainsworth, CEO of Open Garden joined us on this episode of Popping the Bubbl to talk about his vision to completely change the game in communications by disrupting traditional mobile networks and introduce a new way to connect to the internet using blockchain technology.
Paul’s story is quite fascinating. He worked in the mobile communications world for approximately fifteen years where he honed his product management skills at different traditional mobile operators such as Blackberry and Sprint. During his time at Blackberry, he became unsatisfied with the manner traditional operators conducted business, which sparked a desire to try something different, something that would alter the communications business and completely disrupt the established centralized approach.
Anyone who has been following this podcast knows that Pete and I are fascinated by all things Blockchain, so it was a wonderful treat to chat with Chelsea Rustrum, Founder of Blockchain for Good and Blox 7 and David Sneider, CEO of Deconet on this very topic. Together, they are moving the needle when it comes to evangelizing blockchain technology and paving the way for a more sovereign entrepreneurial system.
We know Chelsea from her work and advocacy with Blockchain for Good, where she has created a community that values the important societal changes blockchain technology can actualize. She met David who is also an entrepreneur, friend, and client at a blockchain event where they started discussing the topic of collaborative ownership and distributed value. Chelsea was immediately swept up by the idea and they decided to come together and collaborate on this project.
