Episode #95: The JOBS Act

Episode 95
October 26, 2016 — 70 mins
Guests: Paul Puey

Given the current focus on blockchain development, it makes sense to support the development of decentralized applications. Wefunder’s BitPay integration allows ANYONE from cryptocurrency enthusiasts to mainstream investors to support companies using bitcoin, in full SEC compliance supported by Title III of the JOBS Act. The JOBS Act, passed earlier this year, has updated national securities laws to recognize modern modes of online capital raising and Airbitz is the first blockchain-focused company to take advantage of this. Airbitz, Bitcoin wallet provider and creator of the Edge Security SDK for decentralized apps, is announcing the launch of its equity crowdfunding campaign and CEO Paul Puey comes back to the show (for the first time in 90 episodes, mind you) to talk shop. Puey basically solved the problem of securely storing bitcoins without having to worry about lost passwords which will result in helping bring the bitcoin economy to the 99 percent of humanity who can benefit from this amazing technology and currently is out of the loop. BTW if you are out of the loop, you’re probably not here, right now, so you’re a PAB. *clicks heels and flips on green carpetbagger hat* *grabs onto stem of passing dandelion seed* THE WORLD IS FULL OF WONDER IF YOU’LL OPEN YOUR EYES AND SEEEEEEEEEEEEE *fades into cloud of dandelion seeds*
