This episode of the Tradestreaming podcast is a bit different than others. You’ll hear multiple voices in addition to me. These voices are the reporters behind Tradestreaming, covering how technology is impacting the business of big finance.
This week, we zero in on blockchain with Tradestreaming’s payments reporter, Josh Liggett. Josh drills down on his monthly Blockchain Hype Meter, which looks at how mainstream media covers the space in an effort to distill signal from the noise. To be sure, distributed ledger technology portends to be super-transformative, but there’s a vast distance between there and here.
We talk about the cryptocurrency Zcash, and why there was so much excitement around its launch. We’ll also chat about the growing influence of just a handful of people on the future of the blockchain.
