Frederick Munawa here. I’m a Blockchain Consultant for entrepreneurs and financial services firms.
Blockchain Innovation is where I interview the brightest minds in Blockchain and cryptocurrency – entrepreneurs, executives, and top academics – to discuss present and future applications of Blockchain Technology.
Why? To determine how Blockchain can be used to increase profits, cut costs, and disrupt traditional industries and business models – so you can borrow their strategies, tools, and tactics for your own success.
Join me every Tuesday to learn how the brightest minds in Blockchain are pushing the envelope with Initial Coin Offerings (ICOs) & crowdsales, public blockchains, private blockchains, Bitcoin, Ethereum, Hyperledger, smart contracts, and much more.
