Bitcoin Building Blocks / Andy Higgs

Episode Summary

Continuing on our August blockbuster blockchain theme, Andy Higgs joins us in this episode to discuss what Bitcoin is and how blockchain tech is already changing the world.

Episode Notes

You wouldn't think it, especially when hob-knobbing with the banking elite (as I don't!), but NZ is growing something pretty cool.

Our #8 way of thinking and innovating is expressing itself in pretty unique ways - Kiwi's are solving problems using blockchain technology right under our noses, and it's fantastic. Andy Higgs, the GM of a company called Centrality, joins me today. Centrality is one of these firms at the epicentre of innovation - ground zero for web 3.0.

This month I'm keen to take you on a bit of a journey around blockchain and with this episode, we're covering Bitcoin.

It's important in the context of wealth development, that some of your wealth is denominated using a currency from the future. Value is evolving and web 3.0 is all about this.

Mike Novogratz, as mentioned in the podcast, is a great person to follow on Youtube and social media if you're into this sort of thing - check him out presenting recently on something called 'the herd is still coming'.

If you'd like to learn more about Centrality or to collaborate in some way, get in touch with them here.

If you do wish to buy Bitcoin or Ethereum, and you have decided to based on your own research that it's a good idea, I recommend using VIMBA . By visiting them and signing up using this link, VIMBA will make a small payment to Darcy Ungaro (at no extra cost to you).
