In episode 4, we interview Jeremy Cogan for our “Blockchain and You” series. We ask his past, present, and future takes on blockchain, cryptocurrenies and their impact on his life.
How and when did you first hear about blockchain technology?
Who are you and what is your role in Blockchain WTF?
Once you had a grasp on the technology, what impact did you see it having?
Once I kind of understood the technology, I was very surprised that there’s something so potentially revolutionary, so impactful, that was out there that I hadn’t heard of. I think that blockchain technology has the potential to touch so many different industries. It’s hard to not see it catching up.
What influence do you think cryptocurrencies will have?
I think cryptocurrencies are really the money of the future, and when I say future, I’m talking about the near future. I think it’s right around the corner. You see places like Japan and India already adopting blockchain as a major payment solution. So it’s really only just a matter of time before it hits the global economy.
When were you intrigued, and when were you sold?
I was intrigued as soon as I heard about the technology. The point where I was sold was probably when I saw some major businesses, some big banks, really putting a lot of money into research and development of the product. At that point I figured it was probably gonna come to market eventually.
What’s your prediction for the future of blockchain technology & cryptocurrencies?
I only see a bright future for both blockchain technology and cryptocurrencies. I think that technology has already past its tipping point. It’s gonna come eventually, and mass adoption is right around the corner. At that point, the technology is probably going to affect every one of our daily lives.
