Episode #110: The Technological Revolution

Episode 110
January 15, 2017 — 80 mins
Guests: Bruce Pon

This week we dig deep into what is known as a tech revolution. You see, Bruce Pon, has helped to build a dozen bank and industry startups in Europe, Asia and the Americas while working with leading companies such as Mercedes-Benz, Volkswagen, and DuPont. He is an advisor / investor to six startups. He believes (as do we) that Blockchain will usher in the era of decentralized computing. Simply put, decentralization technology allows assets to be stored in a network of computers accessed via the Internet. An asset can be a gaming token, a concert ticket, an authorship claim on a book, or a digital currency like Bitcoin. This is a powerful idea: placing your trust in a network and not in a single entity like a government, a bank, or a multinational company.

He is the founder of such a database. Starting with the scale and queryability benefits of modern databases, BigchainDB adds blockchain characteristics of decentralization, immutability, and native assets. BigchainDB is for developers and enterprises that want to implement trading systems, clearing and settlement systems, decentralized energy grids, IoT and supply chain use cases, without sacrificing scale, security or performance. BigchainDB was built as a result of seeing scalability as a fundamental barrier to wider adoption of blockchain technologies. Our patent-pending approach to “blockchainify” databases give enterprises the possibility to get up and running with blockchain technologies quickly.
