Episode 28 of the Hacker Noon Podcast: An interview with Wayne Chang and Gregory Rocco of Alpine Intel, a new unit within ConsenSys.
In this episode Trent Lapinski interviews Wayne Chang and Gregory Rocco from Alpine Intel to discuss bringing blockchain solutions to enterprise companies.
“Alpine is a new unit within ConsenSys. We were effectively the cryptoeconomics team at Token Foundry and we found a lot of demand for our services, and basically we want to build these new economies.”—Wayne Chang
“What we look to do is engineer value rather than create speculative value. We’re personally not affected by crypto winter. As Wayne mentioned, we’re focused a lot on enterprise too and seeing where the value can be driven in enterprises.” — Gregory Rocco
“The combination of a global computer, smart contracts, tokens, all these things are going to help drive the transaction cost down of doing business, and you’re going to unlock new kinds of transactions that are going to form new markets that we couldn’t even imagine before.” — Wayne Chang

Episode 27 of the Hacker Noon Podcast: An interview with Cameron Chell, Chairman and Co-Founder of ICOx Innovations, and co-creator of Kodak Coin.
Today’s show would not be possible without Digital Ocean. Learn more at do.co/hackernoon.
In this episode Trent Lapinski and Cameron Chell discuss bringing blockchain technology to enterprise companies we already know and trust, and what it is going to take to move from centralized systems to decentralized systems.
“Our thinking, yet to be proven, is that we go to these established brands who are already transacting in tens or hundreds of millions of dollars in revenue and they can utilize a coin or the crypto infrastructure that can either reduce their costs or increase customer attraction.”
“Ultimately, society and certainly all economics run on trust, there is no other currency other than trust. When you have a system that can replace trust or create an environment where you can transact in a trustless way, the impact globally to me is beyond measure.” — Cameron Chell
