I interviewed the co-founders of the Swap Protocol and learns about the latest news: AIRSWAP! Don Mosites and Michael Oved speak about their discovery of cryptocurrencies, what led to the creation of the Swap Protocol and what it’s like to work at ConsenSys in Brooklyn, New York. We step through the process implemented by swap to enable peer-to-peer atomic exchanges of Ether and ERC20 tokens. Finally we discuss a new development AIRSWAP and the AIR token ICO! AIR will be a membership token that a user must hold so much of to use the AIRSWAP platform.
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.”
