Episode 16 of the Hacker Noon Podcast: An interview with Tor Bair from Enigma.

In this episode Trent Lapinski and Tor Bair discuss privacy, blockchain, the problems with the centralized tech industry, security, and data science. 

“I don’t want to get too much into why truth is broken right now in the tech space, that’s a whole other can of worms, but I think we can all appreciate that it is getting harder and harder to know what is trustable.”

“The moment we start believing there is no other way, then it is just a race to the bottom. There will only be two companies in the World, and that’s if we’re lucky. There may only be one.”

“We have to be building a movement at the same time we’re building the technology. I think we need to be funding these kinds of solutions like this is the apocalypse event for the Internet.” —Tor Bair

Episode 15 of the Hacker Noon Podcast: An interview with Venture Capitalist Julian Moncada.

In this episode Trent Lapinski and Julian Moncada discuss emerging technologies such as blockchain, augmented reality, virtual reality, to artificial intelligence. 

“I think that is really important that if you’re a hacker or developer that you balance the excitement you have around a new technology, around a new potential problem to solve, with the opportunity in the market and building a sustainable business.”

“If you build one without the other, if you have a great business plan, or you have some amazing idea but its not feasible, technically you’re not going to get very far.”

“I also think the inverse is true, you can build amazing tech, but if you haven’t thought through the market for it, or the value proposition it offers. Whether its a market we’re use to or whether it is a completely new market that doesn’t mimic anything today, if you had to make a call on that side of your business that can be very challenging as well.” —Julian Moncada

We need to get to a point as an industry where we can point to things and say, ‘hey this is a productized example where the blockchain is better’ and it is being used at scale.
