I have wanted a crash course on something I still wouldn’t get into unless “Grandma” understood it – Blockchain and Crypto. Personally I just wanted to get educated and there was some I connected with recently, Mark Friedler. If you’ve ever wanted to know even what the basic concept is about, he helps break things down and I pose some interesting questions about it too. It was a great chat and wanted to share this with you all so that you’d be enlightened about this new revolution of a progression towards an absolutely cashless society. How do we get ready for something like this individually and in the business sense? For now, not for me, but maybe some Grandmas may beat me on this wave??
