Samantha Radocchia, or "Sam Rad" for short, is an entrepreneur, speaker, author, futurist and emerging tech advocate who combines the mindsets of an anthropologist and a technologistwhich is why I was so excited to have her join me on our podcast. Did you know that On The Brink With Andi Simon is ranked in the top 9 futurist podcasts for 2019? (You can read about it on LinkedIn.) This led us to ask, What is a futurist?, which led us to Sam Rad, a perfect guest for our program. Sam did a podcast with me back in 2018 on blockchain which was shared widely. In this podcast, we focus on her new book, "Bitcoin Pizza: A No-Bullshit Guide to Blockchain,"  as well as what has been happening with blockchain in the year since we last spoke. Don't miss it!

Now that you've started to see, feel and think in new ways about your business (visual awakening), you're ready to go visually exploring, which is a very exciting part of the Blue Ocean methodology.

125: Jared Tate—Creating DigiByte, Cryptocurrency With the Best Speed, Ease and Security

Posted by Andrea Simon on Mar 14, 2019 6:00:00 AM

Jared Tate shares how he is powerfully disrupting currency with blockchain!

You might just be a real fan of Jared Tate. So many in the DigiByte (DGB) world are. Jared founded DigiBYte in 2013, then the next year, launched DGB's genesis block to create a better cryptocurrency. Recognizing that blockchain is the wave of the future (or more accurately, the tsunami), disrupting all kinds of markets and creating new ones, we did a podcast with Jared in June 2018. So much has happened since then that we did another one just now, and Jared was terrific, again. Clearly, blockchain and cryptocurrency are two phenomena you should be watching carefully, and listening to our podcast with Jared is an important step in that direction.
