For the first time, I refused myself the sweet safety net of a script. Just me my curiosities and questions, and a uniquely inspiring and courageous person I looked up to, sitting across from me. And in perfect accordance with Stephen King's wise words from his memoir on writing and life in general- "The scariest moment is always just before you start. After that, things can only get better."- my trepidation for freestyling subsided and our conversations flowed beautifully.
It was a pleasure interviewing individuals at the forefront of society's unquestionable movement towards blockchain, a technology that facilitates direct, transparent, and fast connections between people and any institution that they decide to interact with (banks, insurance companies, etc.). I hope you enjoy our conversations, which were conducted through Gifts of Awesome (www.giftsofawesome.org) and livestreamed from the incredible City Blockchain Summit in New York. Feel free if you would like to conduct your own interview with entrepreneurs, or even create your own company, as I would be beyond happy to point you towards essential resources and opportunities.
