Take 3, Scene 24: The Influence and Evolution of Blockchain, Part 2

On this episode of Take 3, we’re joined again by Michael Lisse and Derek Tiffany to hear their fresh insights from the Consensus Blockchain Summit in New York City. Michael and Derek had joined us prior to the summit to discuss how blockchain has evolved since its onset and how it has influenced the financial industry. Michael talked about what he was expected and hoping to see from the Summit, and Derek looked at the impact of blockchain from a technical perspective.

For this episode, they have both come back into the studio for a debrief on Consensus, a look at the way blockchain has shifted industry focus beyond the financial, and a discussion around the evolution of blockchain and what the future of this might look like.
