The one element that has always been lacking when it comes to exchanging services and goods is trust. For decades we have turned to “middleman” institutions to provide trust and proof-of-transaction between counter-parties, but thanks to the blockchain, that’s all changing. From a medical doctor, then professional kite surfer to a serial entrepreneur, bestselling author, and keynote-speaker, Julian Hosp’s life pattern is as advanced as the technologies nowadays.
He co-founded the Singapore based FinTech company TenX, which has developed a technology that makes cryptocurrencies spendable anytime, anywhere and has raised USD $80 million in its initial token sale in June 2017. Julian was named one of the top Blockchain and Cryptocurrency experts to follow by Influencive in 2017. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.
