JJ interviews Michael Wagner and Gabriel Allred. We explore The Cannabis Revolution, powered by the Tokes Platform, it is a cannabis business and social movement using cryptocurrency and blockchain based technologies to further cultural acceptance of marijuana legalization.
We start out at the beginning with what inspired the idea and talk about the many parts of the Tokes Platform. We talk about their experience using the Waves platform. Most legal cannabis businesses are unbanked given the disconnect between the States and Federal government over marijuana policy. This is one use case for cryptocurrencies that can really take off.
This past week in episode 213 I mentioned how we are looking to collaborate with more people around the world. Well this is the pilot episode of that effort!
I’d like to introduce Sorin Amzu, a podcaster from Romania and crypto-holder. Sorin has two other podcasts in Romanian: Startups Romania and Banii Vorbesc. Sorin is interested in doing more English podcasts and working with Neocash Radio. In this pilot episode Sorin interviews Ofir Beigel — blogger and owner of 99Bitcoins.com.
They discuss discovering crypto and where it made be headed. Ofir relates his experience with 99Bitcoins.com and talks about the dangers of investing in something you don’t understand. …and much more!
David Werba joins JJ to talk about Musicoin and the upcoming Initial Token Offering (ITO) for MUSICONOMI. Musiconomi aims to be a total solution for artists and musician from song sharing to ticket sales. Having demonstrated a functional proof-of-concept with Musicoin the team is seeking funding to accelerate development.
We also talk about the music industry and the various issues with the legacy system. We also talk about Cofound.it and how they are helping out David and the team with the fundraiser. Expect a public announcement regarding the ITO in about a week. for more information check out:
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).
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.
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.”
