Recently Tatiana traveled to Las Vegas for the World Crypto Convention. There were a lot of interesting blockchain folks to talk to, and of course financial applications to discuss. For this segment, Tatiana is joined by Joshua Scigala the CEO of Vaultoro and Sasha Hodder, blockchain attorney and host of the Hodlcast podcast.
Tatiana, Josh, and Sasha discuss the various projects featured by some colleagues at the conference. They include a chat with Bryan Katis of Troo.io, a trust platform that functions a bit like a decentralized credit bureau, but far more advanced. The ladies spoke with Henry James from Fincross, a next-generation digital investment bank based in Mauritius that aims to serve institutional, corporate, intermediary and private clients in B2C, B2B and P2P environments. The jurisdiction piqued Sasha’s interests, and we got an in depth look at the benefits to working in Mauritius. Finally, a more in depth conversation with Equibit’s Co-Founder, President & CEO, Chris Horlacher, breaks down some of the advantages of moving a project to Switzerland, along with the latest developments at Equibit including launching their main net and allowing for mining of their token.
