Episode 71 - The Best Blockchain Use Cases Aren’t Flashy, They’re Practical - Blockchain Disruption

Some of the best use cases for blockchain aren’t especially flashy. One of those examples is Fluree, which aims to provide a blockchain-driven records-keeping solution with appeal to a broad range of businesses. Brian Platz, co-CEO of Fluree, and his team aren’t striving to reinvent the wheel — instead, they want to leverage existing technologies to reduce the cost and hassle of blockchain adoption.

Platz hopes Fluree can be used as a tool for companies to build practical deployments of blockchain technology, ushering in a new era of decentralization, business transparency, and industry collaboration. He believes that the business value in blockchain will reside more in records-keeping than simple transactions in the future, and that’s exactly what he is trying to accommodate with FlureeDB.

Listen to today’s episode to find out more about Fluree and the future of blockchain.

About Brian Platz: Brian Platz was an entrepreneur and executive throughout the early days of the internet, having founded several successful SaaS companies. Before establishing Fluree, his current project, Brian co-founded SilkRoad Technology, a leading HR platform, which grew to over 2,000 customers and 500 employees in 12 global offices.  Brian is now completely focused on helping companies navigate the complexity of the enterprise blockchain movement, and is the co-CEO of Fluree.
