Joe failed the edit from 14m36s→14m56s; Matt’s voice is muted and he’s talking about IoT scaling and security; he said he”d love to talk to a hacker about IoT security.
This episode we’re talking all about using blockchain in real life, practical situations. To begin with, we chat about what blockchain actually is, how smart contracts have ‘changed the game’ and how people are using it in the current world.
We look at projects like Estonia’s KSI, Gitcoin and Everipedia for some great examples of how people are solving real-world problems. We then discuss where we think the technology is going, what makes sense for using blockchain – and what doesn’t.
Along the way, we also:
- chat about the Marshall Islands’ upcoming smart banknotes
- look at some exciting flight news from Boeing;
- highlight on the latest from Nextcloud and Raspberry Pi;
- discuss the latest in privacy headlines; and
- look at a great way to check what your browser may be leaking online.
Finally, we check in with some old podcast friends – who’ve both seemed to find themselves in some…tricky situations.
