Swarm City on Ethereum: Bonus Interview with Matt Carano

In this special bonus episode of the Neocash Radio podcast, we talk more with Matt Carano, who works with Swarm City’s “Communications Hive”, a decentralized autonomous organization (DAO).

Swarm City decentralized sharing economy on the Ethereum blockchain with SWT tokens

Matthew Carano talks about Swarm City, decentralized ridesharing, SWT tokens on the Ethereum blockchain

Matt joined us on this week’s Wednesday night podcast, and now he’s speaking with us about Swarm City, now that they’ve branched off from the mess that was Christopher David/Arcade City. Matt talks with us a little bit about how Swarm City and its Ethereum-based SWT tokens are looking at ways to create peer-to-peer sharing without any intermediaries. Decentralized ridesharing is the first use case—picture Uber and Lyft without the middleman taking a big cut—but Matt tells us how else Swarm City is looking to connect users directly.

Popular cryptocurrency exchange service Changelly has recently made it possible for users to buy SWT tokens with their debit or credit card, which as Matt explains, could allow for all of the cryptocurrency workings to happen behind the scenes if a service provider made a UI using Changelly. (As always, we are not providing financial advice or recommending buying or selling anything; we are merely reporting news.)

We also learn a little more about Swarm City’s upcoming releases—Boardwalk and Storefront—and Matt also talks about “Trelleth”, a free add-on that he co-created for popular project management tool Trello. Trelleth uses the Ethereum blockchain to tokenize task cards, which “gives anyone the ability to organize, communicate, and crowdfund any project and any task all from Trello.”
