I sat down with Catheryne Nicholson, CEO and cofounder of BlockCypher, for FC’s first-ever podcast.
BlockCypher is a blockchain Web services company. What’s a “blockchain Web services company?” you ask. Turns out, it’s not as boring as it sounds. In fact, it’s really interesting, Brave New World technology. Think: Bitcoin and the future of fiat currency. And in this podcast Catheryne explains.
She also shares BlockCypher’s founding story, and walks us through the evolution of blockchain. Then, she and I get big picture and discuss the potential of crypto-currencies to upend the status quo and make the world a more equitable place.
Plus, what secret message did the universe send Catheryne to become an aerospace engineer? Listen to find out!
