EP.22 Blockchain Emergency Services for Communities in Need - Mark Jeffrey

If the recent onslaught of reporting in extreme weather events has taught us anything, it’s that emergency services infrastructures vary wildly depending on region. While reform takes time, digital solutions may empower communities to create their own emergency response networks to help one another stay safe and healthy in times of need. In this interview, I connect with Mark Jeffrey, long-time Bitcoin author and serial entrepreneur. Mark’s latest project, Guardian Circle, is aiming to use Blockchain technology and sound tokenomics to turn everyday citizens into emergency responders. If you’ve ever been in a tough spot, or if you’re interested in how Blockchain can benefit developing nations and communities, definitely check this episode out!

About Mark: Mark Jeffrey has over 25 years of experience as a tech entrepreneur including three successful exits. He is an award-winning serial entrepreneur of innovative technology companies backed by Tier One investors. These include The Palace (sold to Communities.com in 1998), ZeroDegrees (sold to InterActive Corp/IAC in 2004), TargetClose, Mahalo (now Inside.com), ThisWeekIn, and Guardian Circle.  He has authored over 8 technology books.

  • How blockchain can disrupt emergency services.
