Blockchain Disruption Podcast - Episode 2 - How to Get Started in Blockchain with Paul Puey

Blockchain is a daunting topic for a lot of people, largely because of how new it is and how quickly it is evolving. It’s only been 10 years since the Bitcoin white paper was released, and in that short time, an entire industry has exploded into existence.

To help get you acquainted I wanted to have a chat with Paul Puey, CEO of Edge. Paul is one of the most passionate blockchain thought leaders I've met. He has been a part of this movement since the early days, and he was responsible for creating one of the earliest and most popular Bitcoin mobile wallets.

Paul and I discuss Bitcoin basics, what makes decentralized systems so exciting, and why blockchain is going to disrupt virtually every industry. If you're excited about this technology but want someone to explain it in simple terms, this is an interview you shouldn't miss!

What you will learn in this episode:

  • How Bitcoin and Blockchain are related and what the term “blockchain” really means.
  • What cryptocurrency “mining” is and why it’s important. (Hint: It doesn’t involve underground tunnels or precious metals).
  • Why blockchain and cryptocurrencies are so secure and why that matters.
