Blockchain has the power to revolutionize commodity trading by lowering transaction costs, boosting liquidity and, crucially, providing the mechanism to track, price and trust a range of ESG attributes, which consumers are demanding. But what is blockchain technology, tokenization, smart contracts etc? What about regulation, security and power consumption? In this episode we do a blockchain 101 and look into the commodity trading use-cases being developed by tech’s vanguards. Our guest is Clint Nelsen, a prolific blockchain entrepreneur and co-founder of Startup Weekend – the worlds largest grassroots ecosystem of tech entrepreneurs. Today, Clint is co-founder of Neo, a cross-industry coalition and group of companies focused on tokenizing commodities and their trading.
