EP.12 How Blockchain Will Disrupt Cloud Storage - Bill Cordes

Cloud storage has become a fundamental tool for business success, and personal data management. Most people don't know where they'd be without iCloud and Google Drive. The trouble is, these centralized platforms create all kinds of security and privacy concerns, and they also lock users into one company's view of how their data should be accessed.

That’s where blockchain comes in. As you know, blockchain is a distributed ledger, so one of the most sensible applications for the technology is increasing data veracity, and security, while creating new paradigms for data storage. In this interview, Bill Cordes and I discuss why cloud storage is ripe for blockchain disruption, and what decentralized solutions are being built to create new options for secure data storage online. If you've ever complained about running out of space on your smartphone, or if you care about the security of your cloud data, this is the episode for you!

About Bill: Over the course of Bill’s career, he has operated, advised and invested in over 100 leading software and technology-enabled businesses. Bill is also an accomplished angel investor, making over 24 investments since early 2014. In that short timeframe, four portfolio companies have successfully exited (Dollar Shave Club, Fitmob, Geekatoo and TurboAppeal).

What you will learn in this episode:

  • Learn how blockchain could help make cloud storage safer.
  • Learn how you can leverage blockchain based cloud storage for your business.
  • How tokenomics will play into the use of distributed cloud computing.
