The Fight for Sanity and Freedom, and the Revolution of Dignity - a Ukrainian mother and artist's story of Courage
Kate Taylor was given the opportunity to study under the prominent Ukrainian artist and architect Borys Kutcher for several years, which is where her foundation as an artist started. Throughout her early years, she focused primarily on realistic watercolors and oil paintings. After many years of painting in watercolours, Kate moved forward, experimenting with abstract art in various mediums. This progression helped Kate to broaden her horizons and discover new areas of painting. When Kate decided to explore more on a professional level and entered The Contemporary Art School in Kyiv at the Modern Art Research Institute of the National Academy of Arts of Ukraine, she successfully completed the course and earned the title of contemporary artist.

What are bridges in Blockchain and how do they work?
A conversation with Glitter Finance co founder David Dobrovitsky on bridges in blockchain - what are they, how do they work, what can be the problems?  Benefits of bridges Interoperability – Cross-chains solve the problem of interoperability within the blockchain ecosystem, and users can transfer assets to other blockchains without sacrificing the advantages of the host network. Cross-chain collateral – This feature enables DeFi users to transfer assets from a blockchain with value but little decentralized applications (such as Bitcoin) to another blockchain with a developed ecosystem (like Ethereum, Cardano or others). Scalability – Blockchain bridges designed to handle high transaction volumes ensure greater scalability. The scalability makes it possible for DeFi developers to deploy their applications and users to enjoy such services without giving up the original blockchain’s liquidity and network effect. Efficiency – DeFi users can make and receive micro-transfers faster with cross-chain bridges without paying high transaction fees. This is especially important for the blockchain gaming and ecommerce experience. To learn more, tune into this episode. Your host is Jillian Godsil

Data plays a huge role in our daily activities. But does technology truly make our lives better?
It is often said, digital technologies are driving transformative change in our society. But at what cost? As consumers, do we truly understand how information is being collected and used, and the associated risks and implications? Can we truly trust companies enough to just ‘click and ignore’? In this episode of One Vision, Theo and Barb Maclean chat with Hessie Jones, Venture Partner at MATR Ventures on venture capital model, community building, and tech ethics. From data rights to privacy and security, there is still a lot of work to be done. Hessie’s advice: Ethics needs to become a standard. And remember, just because you can — doesn’t mean you should.

I found computers to be a huge enabler, Kyran O’Mahoney NCBI Chief Technology Officer
Something that is not mentioned enough is accessibility and thankfully technology has proven to be an enabler and lifeline to many, especially for people who are blind or vision impaired. Using technology has unlocked so much opportunities for them in their daily lives but also in education & employment. There is now less of a dependence on assistive technology as the strides in mainstream technology, devices, software and apps in embedding accessibility features has been impressive in recent years. The NCBI is heavily involved in making accessibility a part of everyday life, and Ronan talks to Kyran O’Mahoney NCBI Chief Technology Officer about this and more. Kyran talks about what NCBI does, his role with NCBI, accessibility is so important, accessibility tips for users of mobile phones and computers and where he sees the future of accessibility heading. More about NCBI: They have been around for more than 90 years and they want people who are blind and vision-impaired to have the same opportunities, rights and choices as others to fully participate in society. They also want to enable people who are blind and vision impaired to overcome the barriers that impede their independence and participation in society. NCBI’s core values give effect to their vision and permeate their mission and inform all of their actions to ensure that they achieve the highest standards in everything they do.

How Tapping into Our Creativity and Memories can Eradicate Toxic Happiness and Improve Mental Health
Jonathan Dickson About the artist Born in Dublin, Jonathan is a Kildare based visual artist. After graduating from the National College of Art and Design in 1991 he went on to lead a successful career as a multi-award winning illustrator and designer. During 2006 he dedicated himself to further artistic development outside the design industry. Positive reaction to work created subsequently led him to make the decision to leave this career behind and commit full time to painting. Since then he has taken part in numerous solo and group exhibitions. His work is held in public, corporate and private collections in Ireland, Europe and the USA. He has also been the recipient of a number of public, corporate and private commissions. Artist statement I paint and document what I experience around me (the visceral as much as the visual) as acutely as I can. Certain places and objects I experience resonate and won’t let me go until I work through them, sometimes I know why during the process and sometimes the obsession is revealed afterwards. I’m ever increasingly aware that hindsight reveals far more about my work than anything I could ever conceive up front and I’m happy to allow this to continue (for now). Allied to this I have a deep curiosity about the nature of perception and memory (both visual and conceptual) and how it affects the subjects that call to me.

Can blockchain and gaming exist in the same space?
Phil Ingram, CEO of Lepricon This is the question I pose to the new CEO of Lepricon Phil Ingram, can blockchain and gaming exist in the same space? Lepricon is celebrating its first birthday and Ingram takes on the CEO mantle with a hill to climb. “We’ve achieved a lot in the first year but now we need to tackle the elephant in the room – if gaming is going to be the first killer to on ramp people for mass adoption, then we have to make blockchain gaming more like video gaming,” says Ingram. “Blockchain is all about owning assets and that they can’t be taken away from you unless you leave your private keys at a bus stop. This is the point that enables a subtle shift from publisher first economies to player first.” Ingram makes a distinction between Play2Earn (P2E) and blockchain gaming. It’s not the same according to him. To find out more, listen to the podcast with your host Jillian Godsil

It’s not the same according to him. “P2E risks focusing on grinding in video gaming – the place where you need to kill multiple monsters or repeat actions to move up to the next level. It’s very different and no one plays video games just to grind.” But the fact that rewards or assets earned or won in the game actually belong to the player is what is moving blockchain gaming in the right direction. “The problem is that blockchain is dictating the gaming and not the other way around. Indeed, many blockchain games seem to be glorified ways to sell NFTs. And what about those limited NFT runs – how does the 10,001st player get to play?” Your host is Jillian Godsil, award winning journalist, broadcaster and author

Rolling with the Punches: How JUSTTIP is transforming the service sector for tipped employees in Ireland
James Fahy, with his co-founder, Ciara Walsh are the brains behind the most flexible and robust cashless tip payment service on the market. As the Covid pandemic was at its height, James had noticed that cash was literally disappearing from sight as the whole world embraced digital and mobile based payment systems. As a result, when businesses finally started to reopen, thousands of service and hospitality staff saw their income drastically reduced because no one had any cash to tip. In addition, the customers that added a tip to the bill often did not know if their server got the tip. James realised that something had to be done and JUSTTIP™ was born in July 2021 Since then, James and Ciara have successfully on boarded over 160 locations across Ireland and built an executive management team brimming with talent and experience. But that was just the start; Justtip is now live in London and Las Vegas.

We are giving them an active pipeline, Martin Fitzgerald, CEO and Co-founder of Kwayga
Covid-19 has focused businesses more and more on their supply chains. Covid-19 has also made trade fairs and face to face meetings more or less a thing of the past. On top of that the Russian invasion of Ukraine has disrupted supplies of certain products such as sunflower oil. This has resulted in businesses seeking new solutions to help buyers diversify their suppliers, and suppliers to diversify their markets. Kwayga, an Irish start-up from Cork has identified an opportunity to bring better security to the global food supply chain by matching food buyers and suppliers in a trustworthy way. Ronan talks to Martin Fitzgerald, CEO and Co-founder of Kwayga about this and more. Martin talks about his background, what Kwayga does, dealing with pandemic and Brexit, their future plans, dealing with different languages and cultures. More about Kwayga: Kwayga is a B2B matching platform for buyers and suppliers in the food and beverage sector designed around trust and security. Using the platform buyers and suppliers discover, verify, match, connect, communicate in any language and trade. Finding new, good quality national and international suppliers or buyers, and being able to establish trust is a huge challenge that takes too much time and costs too much money and resources, especially for mid-sized companies. If a business is great at what it does, it should be easy for it to establish trust and securely trade with other businesses anywhere, in any language, at any time. Empowering buyers and suppliers to do this is Kwayga's mission.

Walking the talk and driving authentic inclusion
One step forward, two steps back. Despite increasing awareness and promises from corporations, metrics such as the gender pay gap and funding for female founders have barely budged. How then, can we truly move the needle for workplace gender equality in financial services and beyond? In this episode of One Vision, Theo chats with Nadia Edwards-Dashti, co-founder of the Harrington Starr Group, on her new book, FinTech Women Walk the Talk. As Nadia pointed out, FinTech, as an industry, has always been about driving changes. Together, we can ignite the passion of our allies, and build an ecosystem that is fully representative of the diversity of the society whom we serve.

Eco Entrepreneur and Climate Campaigner, Dale Vince, OBE There’s a saying that goes, ‘don’t meet your heroes as they may disappoint’, well I pleased to say this wasn’t the case when I spoke to green entrepreneur, Dale Vince, OBE for this episode for Irish Tech News  Dale is one a what I would call a conscious CEO, where his work focuses on three key areas – energy, transport, and food.

We also have some light-hearted banter about ‘lentils and sandal’ and where he wears his underpants…intrigued, well you will have to tune in! At the end I had to ask Dale, that burning question, of what’s next for him, and his answer might surprise you and give you that little bit of hope for a better tomorrow. On 29 April, Dale is one of the speakers, at the GEI 14 conference in London, which is a partnership with not-for-profit sustainability specialists A Greener Festival and the International Live Music Conference, the world’s leading platform for the touring and festival sectors. Dale will be on a panel discussion, looking at the energy and transport sectors that will play a key role in the fight against the climate crisis, which will impact live music and events significantly in coming years.

Insights into the EU Digital Markets Act with Amandine Le Pape founder of Element
Two weeks ago the EU parliament and Council negotiators agreed new EU rules to limit the market power of big online platforms. The Digital Markets Act will ban certain practices used by large platforms acting as “gatekeepers” and enable the Commission to carry out market investigations and sanction non-compliant behaviour. Before the  Digital Markets Act was agreed I spoke to Amandine Le Pape founder of British tech start-up, Element about it. Amandine talks about her concerns on the EU  Digital Markets Act and why she thinks enforcing interoperability between apps through Open APIs. Essentially allowing Big Tech to control the process, which will build weak solutions to keep regulators at bay. More about the Digital Markets Act: EU lawmakers agreed that the largest messaging services (such as Whatsapp, Facebook Messenger or iMessage) will have to open up and interoperate with smaller messaging platforms, if they so request. Users of small or big platforms would then be able to exchange messages, send files or make video calls across messaging apps, thus giving them more choice. As regards interoperability obligation for social networks, co-legislators agreed that such interoperability provisions will be assessed in the future. Parliament also ensured that combining personal data for targeted advertising will only be allowed with explicit consent to the gatekeeper. They also managed to include a requirement to allow users to freely choose their browser, virtual assistants or search engines. If a gatekeeper does not comply with the rules, the Commission can impose fines of up to 10% of its total worldwide turnover in the preceding financial year, and 20% in case of repeated infringements. In case of systematic infringements, the Commission may ban them from acquiring other companies for a certain time.

Betting on people: Bridging the gap between fintech and innovation
A significant amount of money has been invested in FinTech in the past decade; according to CFTE, the FinTech sector is now equivalent to 38% of the banking sector in terms of market capitalization. If FinTech was considered a city, it would rank 3rd as an employer in financial services, after New York and London. In a world where we are playing buzzword bingo on a seemingly daily basis, how do we stay on top of the real innovation trends in this fast developing world? And how can we facilitate pathways to these new opportunities and make sure that no one is left behind? As the saying goes, talent is equally distributed; opportunities are not.  In this episode of One Vision, Theo chats with Tram Anh Nguyen, co-founder of CFTE, whose mission is to leverage the power of education to create a more inclusive and welcoming new world of financial services.

Helping Fund the Ukraine, with Crypto Worms, Andrii Vyviurka
Hi I am from Ukraine, I am 25 years old. I work as an IT specialist, I have my own web development team, designers, programmers and other specialists. Now I'm in my apartment, but we sounded sirens all night and we were sitting in bomb shelters, today the Russians dropped bombs on our city again, several dozen people were injured and several died, people are buried in the backyards of their homes, it's very awful in relation to ordinary civilians. You can probably see this in the news. Yesterday in Irpin near Kyiv, terrorists killed a journalist from the United States who worked and showed the truth to the New York Times. Two more of his comrades were injured and are currently in hospital in Kyiv.  Crypto worms is my own NFT project that I started creating six months ago. Most of the NFT from it was sold in the beginning and now people are just trading it. The game itself is for 2 people who play in battle with each other with different skills and weapons (the game is still under development.) These are people who trade NFT for resale and people who want to wait for the release of a game where they can reproduce their NFT to treat others, receive crypto tokens worms and health elixirs. Crypto game is not just a game, you can play it and earn more. 5. pUtin is a small man who is not friendly with the head and creates big problems for the whole world, Ukraine suffers the most in this confrontational people are losing their homes. The city of Mariupol, where 500,000 people lived, has been wiped off the face of the earth. It is scary to look at it. Now everyone is helping the country as best they can, some are volunteering to prepare food for soldiers and refugees, some are defending our land and their city with a machine gun. I, in turn, joined the funds and decided to make a charity project for people who lost their homes and to support our army, our army is many times smaller than the Russian, but our people are much smarter. Pictures for the NFT project are ready now I am working with NFT crypto markets where we will be added.  The project already has the name Strong Ukraine. Each picture of the project is unique and reflects the strength of spirit of the people. The NFT theme has been popular for a year now. I also successfully trade various collections and help with creation. Now there are a lot of videos on YouTube to create a collection in different languages, everyone can understand this. Or write to me if you want to trade or create your own collections, I can help if I am interested in the project. I have 50 unique pictures and the time provided is no longer needed as my collection is created in one style and other creators will find it difficult to understand my style. Now there is a greater need for advertising the project on a large scale not only in Ukraine but around the world. We now buy a lot of helmets and body armor, as well as night vision devices and thermal imagers. All this is needed. Now our volunteers bring us money, we buy it with money donated by people and add our own when needed.  To say what you can help us need to understand what country you are from and how you can help. It is a financial aid whether you can buy the things we need and transfer or accept women with children. Sites such as solsea and solanart help in the quick verification procedure, and I will ask them to post on the main page and on social networks as much as possible. The Crypto worms project has nothing to do with the Strong Ukraine charity project, these are different projects. Soon we will win over and return our territories, and all the partners who supported us and the people who helped financially and in all other ways will celebrate our common victory. Glory to Ukraine!

We don’t have a pipeline problem; we have a listening problem
How well are women and communities of color being represented in financial services? And how many brilliant ideas don’t get the opportunities they deserve because we are not listening to all the voices? Many people assume that we have a pipeline problem, that there are no women or prominent female leaders in financial services. But that cannot be further from the truth. We don’t have a pipeline problem; rather, we have a listening problem.  In this episode of One Vision, Theo chats with Sonya Dreizler and Liv Gagnon, founders of Choir, who are on a mission to change whom the finance industry listens to. You can’t be what you can’t see. Together, we can help change the status quo, one conference at a time.

Safe Harbour for Ukraine A group of friends in Ireland are sending a bus filled with essential supplies to the Polish/Ukraine border and are returning with 40 women and children displaced by war. The goal is to provide accommodation and integration support for our guests for as long as is necessary. They will be treated with dignity and respect.

The bus is leaving on St Patrick’s Day and will return approximately five days later. We are relying 100% on the goodwill of people in Ireland to make this happen. If you can help, especially by providing shelter in your home we’d love to hear from you. If you can’t provide shelter we have a list of urgently needed supplies below. In the coming days we will launch a GoFundMe page so you can make a cash donation. Our GoFundMe page is here. OFFERING ACCOMMODATION Finding suitable accommodation for our guests is the most challenging part. Your help would be greatly appreciated. You might have a spare bedroom you can offer, or even an entire property that’s not fully used. Right now we’re looking for properties in Cork and Limerick city, preferably within walking distance of shops and a bus route. It’s a big thing to offer a room in your home. Most of our guests do not have fluent, or even any, English. They’ve all been through a horrific experience. None of us know how long this war will go on for but we would ask that if you are making a commitment it is for at least three months. If you feel you could help, please fill out the form by clicking here DONATING ESSENTIAL SUPPLIES Refugees arriving at the Polish/Ukrainian border are tired, hungry and many are sick. We are providing supplies to those who have managed to cross the border and make it safely into Poland. If you can help we would greatly appreciate it.

The Sandbox - not an overnight success but right place right time
There are many metaverses in Web3 with more springing up overnight. Some bright spark recently called the metaverse just space on someone’s computer (or more correctly computers) but on February 15, JP Morgan issued a report on metaverses which concluded by saying that the metaverse will most likely infiltrate every sector in some way in the coming years, with the market opportunity estimated at $1 trillion in yearly revenues. It’s a bit loose on specifics but the report leaned much more heavily into the hype than reality (from the title of the report). Someone who knows first-hand the opportunities involved in the metaverse, before it was even given that common term, is Sebastien Borget, co-founder of Sandbox, arguably one of the most successful metaverses and certainly leading the pack in this increasingly crowded field.

S.O.S. WAR IN UKRAINE, Kiev needs help, Victor Gry
Jamil talks with Victor Gry, from Kiev to understand what is happening on the ground there. See more on their YouTube channel https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WY8sDvZdWEA What is your background? Is it a logical background for what you have been doing up until now? Hi Jamil Thank you for the opportunity to communicate with you. Russia started a war against the civilian population of Ukraine. At the moment, hostilities on the side of Russia continue for the seventh day. And my experience as a journalist tells me about the need to tell what is happening in my country to the citizens of Europe. Russia attacked Ukraine on February 24 at 5:00 am, when the civilian population was sleeping, unaware of Putin's terrible plans. Of course, today, the second of March, the key to victory is the united actions of Ukrainians in the struggle for their freedom. It is understandable and pleasant that we receive support from the European Union and the understanding that Ukraine can become a full-fledged member of the community. Ukrainians proved their masculinity, unbreakable temper and will to win not by word but by deed. Your communication tower was struck late last night. What’s the current state of affairs where you are in Kyiv? Ukraine is being invaded throughout the country. You probably know that the President of Belarus, Lukashenko, adopted a number of amendments to the constitution of Belarus in an emergency referendum, which now makes it possible to place nuclear weapons on the territory of the country. Two dictators, Putin and Lukashenko, should be brought before the tribunal, the court in The Hague intends to investigate the crimes of the Russian army in Ukraine. Their actions are a direct threat today not only to Ukraine, but also to Europe. You can observe the rhetoric of some of the leaders of the Kremlin towards Europe. From Belarus, fighter jets are flying towards us, bombing not only military bases, but also civilians, who are forced to hide in the basements of their houses from bomb attacks. One of these attacks was intended to leave the country without television, one rocket was aimed at destroying the TV tower in Kyiv, and the second rocket bombed the Babi Yar Holocaust memorial complex. Now the connection is established, the blow was inflicted on the building of the control room near the TV tower. The building where people worked. What is happening in Ukraine, you can see directly broadcasts on YouTube channels. It is pleasant to realize that volunteers are coming to Ukraine from 16 countries of the world who are ready to fight shoulder to shoulder with the Ukrainian people against the aggressor. Their total number has already exceeded 1000 people. You organized a volunteer organization. What is your organization doing right now? Fighting? Mobilizing people? How’s it going? Volunteer organizations work in Kiev, and my son is organizing in one of them. As a journalist, I keep in touch with them. All forces have been gathered to fight to prevent the capture of the Capital. The territorial defense, created from the men of Kyiv, is designed to prevent looting in the city during the curfew. A very active mobilization of people, the civilian population helps the military and local activists from the territorial defense in cooking, there are volunteer centers for cooking and providing food. We need help to purchase and provide food, essential goods to everyone who is now on the defensive and in the mobile volunteer groups in Kyiv. my mob Viber WhatsApp +38 050 831 24 02 email [email protected]

Come for the content; stay for the community
What makes a community? And what comes to mind when you see the word, community? A common bond, perhaps — around our mutual love for technology, and a conviction to bring inclusive finance to more in our society. Or perhaps a love of music, craft beer, and human connection. In this episode of One Vision, Theo chats with Lisa Moyle, Chief Strategy Officer and Co-founder VC Innovations / Fintech Talents on the fintech community, and the trends we expect to see in what’s shaping up to be a very busy 2022 in the financial services industry and beyond. There is never a dull moment in the land of fintech.

Unbank the world with Alex Mashinsky
Alex Mashinsky, the serial US entrepreneur well known for installing broadband on the US subway, once famously declared Bitcoin the slowest database on the planet. It wasn’t until he understood it solved the issue of the digital double spend, that he got interested and when Mashinsky gets interested, he moves fast. The result is a Celsius Network, a crypto platform that has grown 20x in one year. Coupled with his interest in crypto was a singular dislike of how the banking system served its customers, or rather it didn’t. “I’m not alone in this opinion,” he says. “There was a recent survey where people said they’d rather visit the dentist than go sit with their bankers. We all have this visceral reaction.” Right now the banking system is particularly broken. As he points out, people work hard, get paid a salary, lose half it in taxes and then people can’t earn any interest on their remaining money. Indeed in this zero/negative interest climate, their money is devalued on top of which they get charged all sorts of bank and credit card fees. “The system is rigged. For most unaccredited investors you cannot participate in different investments, and you are excluded from value creation. That’s what we set up to change in Celsius. We are the opposite of Wall Street – where insiders get to call retail investors the plankton because they feed on them.

Why Waivlength can transform Social Networking, Caolan Ward, CMO and Head of Community
Caolán is CMO and Head of Community at Waivlength, an Irish startup creating a decentralised social media platform releasing later this year. While still studying Marketing, Innovation & Technology in DCU, he has previous startup experience with Merlin Mask - a project designing a better, cheaper, more sustainable face mask during the COVID-19 pandemic which placed in the top 5 out of 1000 entrants in the XPRIZE Next-Gen Mask Competition. Currently, Caolán is managing the current Waivlength community, all social outreach, and wider strategy surrounding their equity fundraise and Beta sign-up. Technology to Transform Social Networking Through seamless blockchain and cryptocurrency integration, Waivlength adds many features which set it apart from current mainstream channels. There’s a lot of buzz around the Web 3.0 movement and the changes it will bring to the industry, but few people actually know why it began and what it will bring. To understand this, let’s take a look back at its predecessors - Web 1.0 and 2.0. Web 1.0 or ‘World Wide Web’ as it was known, was just a set of static websites with lots of information and no interactive content. Slow dial-up connections for chat rooms and MSN messenger, AltaVista and Ask Jeeves. Then came 2.0. Faster internet speeds paved the way for interactive content. The web wasn’t about observing anymore, it was about participating. New platforms provided users with faster, more reliable, and feature-rich services. The global sharing of information spawned the age of ‘Social Media’. Youtube, Wikipedia, Twitter and Facebook gave voices to the voiceless and a means for like-minded communities to thrive. With the vast increase in internet users and volume of data floating around, big digital corporations soon realized how valuable of an asset personal information is. So began the mass stockpiling of data in centralized servers, with Amazon, Facebook and Twitter the biggest custodians. People sacrificed privacy for the convenience of these services; whether they knew it or not, their identities, browsing habits, searches and online shopping information was sold to the highest bidder. While the Web 2.0 democratized many power structures and created new opportunities, the economic engine is largely privatized and monopolized. Almost all online services are hosted on hardware owned by the “big three” cloud providers, which consist of Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, and Google. Facebook now boasts 2.9 billion users worldwide. Uber and AirBnB have created private networks for public infrastructure which they dominate. The Web 3.0 is the antithesis of this, it’s about multiple profit centers sharing value across an open network. The primary purpose of the Web 3.0 movement isn’t focused on expanding the functionality of the internet. Instead, Web 3.0 is focused on restructuring the way in which the internet is accessed and interacted with. We now have the development of what is described as a human-centred internet.

Already one million trees have been planted, Padraig Power refurbed Market Managing Lead for Ireland
Refurbished devices such as smartphones are becoming more popular for various reasons. These include buying a smartphone that is as good as new, less CO2 is generated and the money you can save when buying a refurbished smartphone. Ronan talks to Padraig Power, refurbed Market Managing Lead for Ireland about this and more. Padraig talks about his background, what refurbed does, refurbed long term goal, their average customer age, and their biggest selling smartphone last year. Padraig also talks about what’s important to phone users, and where they plant their trees. More about refurbed: Refurbed launched in Ireland in March 2021 and the company has already managed to get a refurbished device into 1% of Irish households. The company’s long-term vision is to get at least one refurbished device into every household in Ireland. Each device undergoes a rigorous 40-step refurbishment process to ensure products are brand new when the customer receives them and refurbed offers a wide range of products from household brands such as Apple, Microsoft, Sony, and Samsung just to name a few. In addition to generating 70% less CO2 compared to the manufacturing of a new device, for every product sold the company plants a tree to offset carbon emissions created during the refurbishing process. On that point, since launching in Ireland, Irish consumers have managed to help plant 20,000 trees.

It's all about the DAO - interview with Jordan Gray of NEAR Foundation
Everything you wanted to know about DAOs but were afraid to ask ... Jillian Godsil interviews Jordan Gray from NEAR Another really crucial part of the community aspect to Web3 are DAOs or Decentralised Autonomous Organisations. “I like to break DAOs to their constituent parts,” says Gray. “Decentralised can mean the people are geographically disbursed or indeed the work is. There is not one person at the top telling everyone what to do – the work is collaborative or like a co-op.” When it comes to the autonomous portion, this is akin to the royalty split mentioned before at Codame. “Even decision making can be automated thereby eliminating boring or repetitive tasks. And unlike companies like Uber or Lift where automation is key to the success of the company, the rewards are spread evenly amongst the participants.” Tune in to hear more.

Fighting Climate Change with Technology
Miroslav Polzer is convinced that he is destined to play an important role in mastering the global climate crisis. His main vehicle is the International Association of the Advancement of Innovative Approaches to Global Challenges or IAAI for short. This organisation is accredited to the United Nations through the Economic and Social Council, the Department for global communications, the UN climate change process, UNFCC and the Green Climate Fund, which is the biggest international public climate finance mechanism of the UN system. The message of IAAI is big because the global challenges are big and as Polzer explains: “We are already partially in crisis mode and these global challenges affect everyone, hence the need to respond in a global manner.” Polzer argues that the world needs systemic solutions - we need to create an institutional framework, along with economic and societal frameworks. “The problems that we see don’t stop at national borders and the solutions rely on everyone taking action, right down to individual grocery shopping and choices. As a result, we are building an ecosystem on blockchain to capture our activities. We want to build on culture, technology and organisational innovation to get everyone engaged and empowered to take meaningful and rewarding action for the local and global public good, aligned with the goals and programs of the United Nations’ system.” Polzer is passionate about the UN. He sees it as the only player which has a true global mandate and he is actively building a United Citizens Organisation for Action for Climate Empowerment, based on the blockchain.

The innovation mindset: It’s not just about the tech
When we talk about innovation, oftentimes we think about those in technology. But innovation goes beyond artificial intelligence, robotics, and quantum computing. Beyond the bits and bytes, it is also about changing mindsets and thinking critically and differently. It is about being comfortable with the uncomfortable. It is about allowing ourselves the time and opportunity to learn to be clumsy and to embrace failure as part of our journey.  In this episode of One Vision, Theo chats with Jennifer Sertl, Founder and President of Agility3R and Adjunct Professor at RIT, on innovation and the importance of cross-pollination. Perhaps it’s time to slow down and imagine a little.

Betting Big on In-Game Fantasy Sports Betting and the Future of Rugby, Paddy Power
Paddy Power is a veteran of the gaming industry.  As a fourth generation ‘bookie’ he has helped create, develop and ultimately personify one of the wagering world’s most famous brands, ‘Paddy Power’.Paddy Power (the brand!) is a cornerstone of the Flutter Group, which has grown to become the world’s leading gaming and wagering company, with brands including Fanduel under its umbrella.Paddy’s expertise throughout his career has been mainly focussed on the fearless pursuit of creating an iconic, relevant and relatable brand.   Paddy Power has consistently been the most famous betting brand in the UK & Ireland and has won countless awards for various campaigns over the past two decades, both within and outside it’s sector.Paddy’s successful campaigns are as varied as setting up a ‘bookie stall’ in St. Peter’s Square to shout odds on the next Pope during the 2005 Papal Election (the Vatican Guard were none too pleased!), to launching a ‘Rainbow Laces’ campaign, persuading Premier League footballers to wear Rainbow Laces to raise awareness of homophobia in Football.‘What would nobody else dare do?’ Is a question Paddy and his team often asked, and the answer invariably led to an unexpected and successful campaign.  Like persuading Prof. Stephen Hawking to become a Paddy Power brand Ambassador for the FIFA World Cup in Brazil in 2014 - his job was to mathematically calculate how to take the perfect penalty to help England get over their awful record in penalty shootouts….as it turned out England were so bad they didn’t make it far enough in the tournament to even have a penalty shoot out! In more recent times Paddy has hosted a 26 show series of The Green Room, a weekly sports & entertainment show on Irish national TV, and has made various sports and culture documentaries on behalf of Paddy Power (the brand) as they spread their reach away from the traditional core territories.This type of uninhibited, creative thinking and action (along with a vastly superior social following to its peers) has consistently been the difference which has created an unrivalled brand affinity among Paddy Power advocates.As a founder and President of ASX, Paddy's ambition is to facilitate a new era of engagement among sports fans where they can be entertained on their own terms rather than the more traditional terms of those gone before.

She first started off by researching cryptography, the technical workings behind blockchain, and current limitations, publishing her own articles and videos explaining technical components and reviewing interesting applications. She then moved into blockchain development after teaching herself Solidity, building her own decentralized applications (dApps) and other blockchain-related projects to tackle global issues. This included dApps and frameworks to secure property rights in developing countries, prevent cyberattacks on nuclear power plants, render the pet industry more transparent, combat bias in AI, and reduce blood donation expiry, winning hackathons and other competitions that allowed her to present her ideas to companies such as S&P Global.

As the youngest employee, she integrated a decentralized indexing protocol into the company's token exchange platform and spearheaded her own project there to prevent child labour in the chocolate supply chain. Over the summer, she got to conduct research on smart contract evolution under the guidance of a professor at the University of Waterloo as well. As she grew her network in the blockchain enterprise solutions community, she has also gotten the chance to moderate fireside chats with leaders in the blockchain industry and spark insightful conversations on the potential of blockchain in ESG.

How to earn passive income while Gaming
Interview with Artur Pszczolkowski, CMO and VP of GamerHash Formed in 2017, GamerHash is a well-established project with just under 1 million users and a solid commercial base. In fact, given the commercial premise of the project, it is surprising there are not more copycat companies following their business model. However, it would be hard to catch up now given their early player advantage. In a nutshell, GamerHash combines unused CPU and GPU of gamer devices to mine cryptocurrencies. It only works on gamer devices with their powerful graphics cards. There is no extra electricity consumed, in fact it takes advantage of the electricity already being used. The software automatically selects which cryptocurrencies to mine from a basket of twelve. The user is unaware of the details but receives a reward in Bitcoin. The cost of these gamer machines is typically between $4000 and $5000. The more powerful machines are capable of mining more cryptocurrency, but an average machine can generate approximately $100 a month – enough to pay for bills or purchasing digital services or items, while the more powerful machines can earn around $250 per month, providing a possible decent payback of just over a year. So, the gamer who typically has the machine on 24x7 can earn a passive income without expending extra cost. To find out more, listen to the podcast.

Adieu 2021. Hello 2022.
As we bid farewell to 2021, how would you remember the year that was the “new normal” or the “great resignation”?  For some, this may have been a record year with funding and innovation. For some others, this may be a year for reflection and recalibration. Or perhaps changes and uncertainty are simply part of the new reality we are in. Regardless of where you are geographically and what role you play, one thing is for certain: There is no better time than now to be part of fintech, to flex your creative muscles and find new ways to serve more of our society, to put your heart and soul into an industry that never sleeps.  In this episode of One Vision, Arun, Bradley, and Theo reunited to chat about the year that was 2021, and what we think the future would hold for our ecosystem and beyond.

Ido Hoorvitch a researcher at CyberArk explains why he hacked WiFi networks in Tel Aviv
CyberArk recently released new research from researcher Ido Hoorvitch who recently went on a mission in his hometown of Tel Aviv to uncover how many WiFi networks he could crack with one simple trick, much like Alan Turing in his quest to crack the Enigma code. Ronan talks to Ido about this and more. Ido talks about his background, why he decided to uncover how many WiFi networks he could crack with one simple trick, and what he found. Ido also gives tips on how enterprises and consumers can protect themselves, and if there is any other potential hacks that could cause concern. More about Ido’s research: After sniffing 5,000 WiFi hashes and installing hashcat, Ido was able to execute several cracking attacks that took advantage of a habit most people in Israel have -- using their cellphone number or a weak alternative as their Wi-Fi password. Using this method, he easily broke more than 70% of the sniffed WiFi networks' passwords. This should be a wake-up call for enterprises and consumers alike. The continued move to hybrid work has expanded an already porous corporate security perimeter. The routers that were susceptible to this attack, from many of the world’s largest vendors, are used by households and businesses worldwide. The hack Ido did was ‘undetectable’ and couldn’t have been stopped by two-factor authentication, making it incredibly powerful.

Repurposing AK47s for peace, CRYPTO KALASH stories with Bran Symondson
The Artistic Expression of War to Improve the Environment and Re-establish Masculine Identity with Bran Symondson Bran Symondson is a British photographer, artist, philanthropist, entrepreneur, and art collector. He is considered to be one of the most acclaimed reportage photographers of the 21st Century. Bran started his career in the 1990s working alongside renowned photographers such as Gavin Bond, David La Chapelle, and Nadav Kander. In 2004, Bran started the selection process to join the British Army Special Forces Reserves. After completing pre-deployment training in 2007, Bran was deployed to Afghanistan, Helmand Province. During the tour in Afghanistan, Bran continued to capture images on his camera of the civilians he met along the way, collating images of the land and people - he vowed to himself he will create some inspiring art if he ever made it back to London. He documented his life-changing experiences under gunfire with a simple Canon G9 camera, these significant images culminated in his first show “The Best View of Heaven is from Hell”. The photographs Bran took of young Afghanistan boys holding decorated AK47s with butterfly stickers and flowers gave Bran the idea to embellish the assault rifle with money and butterflies. It was during his last tour of duty training the Afghan National Police (ANP), which now patrols this province, that Symondson became fascinated with the force’s distinctive ethos. So he returned as a civilian photographer “embedded” with them to document something far more unique than the endless fields of opium. The Sunday Times decided to commission Bran to go back to Afghanistan and re-shoot the images as a civilian photographer. After being awarded the 2011 Amnesty International Media Award for his photograph “Lost Boys”, Symondson decided to develop the concept of his photographs further and he began to work on the sell-out show “AKA Peace”.

Using Blockchain to Reunite Families, Kristine Smith
Leveraging Blockchain Technology to Reunite Families Impacted by Failures in Local Judicial Court Systems, with Kristine Smith Kristine A. Smith is a Star Producer and Ambassador for the Erasing Family Documentary, (www.erasingfamily.org)  a free non-profit feature-length film about family court induced trauma and real-life reunifications ,  the film is endorsed by the American Psychological Association. This film is designed to help erased kids open up to reuniting with their parents. Kristine Smith has been written about in Jamil Hasan's book Block Chain Ethics, in Chapter 4 "Cracking the Glass Ceiling".  Jamil writes of Krissy’s sudden status as a newly minted “bitcoin” millionaire in 2017 and her struggles as a “non-custodial” parent and her ongoing custody battle in Chester County Pennsylvania “Family” Court. Jamil details the story of how Krissy made money on cryptocurrency to donate to Ginger Gentile the Director of the Erasing Family social impact documentary, in order to make it free and available to educate the masses (including divorce attorneys!!) on the mental health crisis caused by “Family” Court.. Krissy Smith has been a proud and loud voice for the #PsychiatricSurvivor and the #FreeBritney movements. In the state of Pennsylvania, Krissy is an advocate for 50-50 Shared Parenting. She believes that anything less than that will perpetuate the mental health crisis underlying many suicides, homicides, and mass shootings in our society. Smith doesn’t want others to suffer the same fate she has, missing out on the holidays with her offspring. To achieve that goal, she has been rallying support for HB 1397, a proposed Parenting Time bill in Pennsylvania. This bill promotes gender equality in custody determinations and aims to protect the right of children to continue to have both parents meaningfully involved in their lives following a separation or divorce.

Mathematics and statistics can be used to test if data is real, Diarmuid Hayes SciFest finalist
SciFest, Ireland’s largest and most inclusive second level STEM fair programme took place recently, and it aims to give students of all abilities and backgrounds the opportunity to develop research, problem solving, critical thinking, and presentation skills. Participation in the SciFest programme is free at all levels. Since its foundation in 2006, SciFest has grown from a single STEM fair of 170 students to 99 STEM fairs with 10,000 students participating around the country. Ronan talks to Diarmuid Hayes one of the SciFest finalists. Diarmuid talks about his background, the SciFest National STEM competition, his SciFest project, Benford’s law and how he proved how accurate Ireland’s Covid data is. More about Diarmuid: Diarmuid Hayes is a student at Coláiste Iognáid, Galway. Diarmuid investigated a a law in nature called Benford’s Law that all data follows. If the data does not follow Benford's Law, then the data is likely fake and possibly manipulated either on purpose or accidentally. He subsequently developed a dashboard test that incorporates Benford’s Law, statistical and graphical techniques to test if data is real or fake. The platform is a user-friendly application so that anyone can test data quickly and efficiently. His innovative project will be helpful for scientists or students to be used as an analytical tool to check that their data is not biased in any way and will help identify if images or videos are fake or real so that public can be made aware of fraud, fake news, or scams.

We have all heard of the increase in phishing scams via emails and texts that are designed to steal financial details from you. One of the most popular ones claims to be from An Post and in the run up to Christmas more and more of these will be received. I have gotten numerous texts from Irish mobile phone numbers over the last few weeks stating “ANPOST: Payment of import duty/tax & advance fee of €1.99 is required for your shipment to be processed. Pay securely via xxxxxxxxxx”. The xxxxxxxxxx at the end of the text is actually a link to a website where your payment is processed. Another person who received one of these phishing attacks is Morten Kjaersgaard CEO Heimdal Security, a cybersecurity company based in Copenhagen. Morten received an email supposedly coming from the GLS courier company, informing him of an incoming package in his name and for the delivery of which he had to make a small payment. Morten talks to Ronan about the email he received, what he did next, how the scam works and how his research and development team managed to infiltrate the attackers. More about the phishing scam: The email/text is a phishing scam and clicking the link within the email/text takes the recipient to a phishing web page with credit/debit card inputs for the victim to execute the payment for the package delivery. Once the recipient fills in their credit/debit card details, all the data is then sent to the attackers through a Telegram chatbot, onto a public Telegram channel, which basically makes the 3.000 stolen credit/debit cards to date visible not just to the attackers but also to anyone else who is aware of the Telegram channel’s existence.

Why Artists Should Create Their Own Platforms for Fan Engagement, DJ Sam Feldt, Fangage
Taking Back Your Personal Data and Why Artists Should Create Their Own Platforms for Fan Engagement, with DJ Sam Feldt and Fangage More about Sam DJ, producer, entrepreneur and sustainability pioneer Sam Feldt has established himself as one of the most sought after electronic artists of recent times. Building his career around distinctly feel-good sound, Sam already has a double album and a multitude of top-selling releases under his belt. The platinum-selling DJ and producer has proven himself to be an entrepreneur at heart, with his own platform Fangage - meant for artists to connect with their fans better - and the launch of his own record label Heartfeldt Records in 2020.  On top of this, with his project Heartfeldt Foundation, Sam is passionately working towards a more social and sustainable dance music industry. With this foundation he promotes a sustainable lifestyle according to the Do-Give-Inspire and Empower model and aims to combine the reach of a lot of different influencers to create awareness around sustainability issues. The mission of the foundation is a common thread for the entire Heartfeldt business chain: Heartfeldt Records, Heartfeldt Radio and Heartfeldt Events. Both in music and life, Sam definitely has his sights set firmly on the future. Heartfeldt Foundation In his entrepreneurship, Sam is always looking for ways to help out others and protect our planet. This same philosophy will be applied to Sam’s extracurricular endeavor to mitigate the climate impact of his DJ activities as much as possible. He is aware of the fact that as a DJ he flies all over the world and thus has a large carbon footprint. For this reason, his flight behavior is measured and calculated, visitors to Heartfeldt events are asked about their way of transport to his shows and 1% of the stream earnings of Heartfeldt Records releases goes to Heartfeldt Foundation. “The whole idea is to maximize the impact of what I’m doing,” Sam elaborates. “The transition to a circular economy is something that we are all part of and I think companies and people who are trying to do their best for the environment, should get attention and support.” As an ambassador of Plastic Promise, Plastic Soup Foundation and partner of Blond:ish Bye Bye Plastic, many positive adjustments are already made within the events sector. Sam Feldt believes sustainability is needed in all areas of our consumption. He is therefore open to working with all interested parties in order to investigate the ways in which life, from everyday consumption of food and drinks to flying and performing music, can be made sustainable.

A Utopian or Dystopian future? The choice is ours
The twenty-first century is going to be the most disruptive, contentious period humanity has ever lived through. It will challenge our most sacred ideologies around politics, economics and social constructs. It will force humanity to adapt in ways we can't yet imagine. We are now living in a different world than a century ago, where algorithms and robots can take people’s jobs, where unemployment increases and social unrest is fueled by divisive social networks and a lack of economic opportunity, and where the impact of climate change is undeniable.  In this episode of One Vision, Theo and Bradley speak with our good friend, Brett King, author of a new book, The Rise of Technosocialism: How Inequality, AI and Climate Will Usher in a New World. We discuss the context of what is happening in society, the technology behind these changes, and where we are headed next.

Tim Draper on Blockchain, VC, female VCs, El Salvador and everything Bitcoin
It’s true, Tim Draper has picked losers. He tells me this even before I ask him. The VC legend who backed Hotmail, Tesla, SpaceX, Coinbase, Ledger and many other successful companies, readily coughs up that he has invested in lemons. Some he says have totally gone out of business, but others just didn’t get him the money back. “By the same token there are winners that make us a couple of times on the money and then some that 1000x the investment.” Asked to identify the single biggest element in both – either for success or failure, Draper is very sure of the common denominator. “Trust – entrepreneurs have to build trust amongst themselves, their team, their employees and their customers.” He also touches on another comment theme – regulation. “They need to feel free to innovate. And they can’t feel overwhelmed by government regulations.” Draper cites a single decision maker in the business – and faith amongst the team in that leader. “Another factor is that the winners are often a bit odd. Their ideas are sometimes left of centre and often I go - whoa, what are you doing?” Tune in to hear more from the Bitcoin legend Your host is Jillian Godsil, award winning journalist, broadcaster and author - her latest book is at https://persons-of-interest.io/

Can the journey to the American Dream be truly debt free?
The financial services ecosystem has been inundated with a tremendous amount of external capital aimed at disrupting the way people and businesses bank. From the most basic to the most complex, financial relationships are held together by the tenets of savings, investments, monetary exchanges, protection, and use of the credit and debt.

What would our world be like, if banks and fintechs could change their business model to align with customer's financial objectives ? What if there was more focus on reducing debt and truly building real wealth over time?  In this week’s episode of One Vision, Theo and Bradley chat with Sunjay Pandey, founder of Woven Money, about their goals of helping consumers achieve long term financial security.

Perhaps back in the beginning of the pandemic, when you couldn’t find toilet paper, or maybe now when you are just starting your holiday shopping and realize you might already be a bit too late. But do we think enough about what we buy, why we buy, where we buy from, and whether we are buying too much?  In this week’s episode of One Vision, Theo and Bradley chat with Christopher Mims about his new book, “Arriving Today: From Factory to Front Door –– Why Everything Has Changed About How and What We Buy”, and the fascinating story of the complex web of our global supply chain and why it matters more than ever.

Climate Change and The Future of Food with Matt Reynolds, WIRED UK

We discuss gene sequencing, veganism, education, activism and so much more.  Grab a cuppa and take part in the conversation today. Matt Reynolds is the science editor at WIRED UK, where he edits and commissions stories about the environment, health, space and everything else about how science is  changing the world.

His first book, The Future of Food: How to Feed the Planet Without Destroying it was published on September 16, 2021.  Matt was previously a technology reporter at New Scientist. With a global  population estimated to reach nearly 10 billion by 2050, we face a huge  challenge in feeding everyone on the planet. How is that to be achieved? In this brilliantly insightful, one stop guide WIRED journalist Matt Reynolds assesses the limits and drawbacks  of current food production and looks at the ways in which they can be  tackled. He considers the  potential for lab-grown meat to replace inefficient livestock farming.  He talks to the scientists hoping to perfect more productive and  disease-resistant crops. He explores initiatives to  make agriculture less environmentally damaging and to reduce food  waste. And he addresses the fundamental question: how do we feed more  people while using fewer of the Earth's resource. You can find Matt on Twitter

Navigating the present and preparing for tomorrow – with intelligent data
Financial institutions are sitting on top of a lot of data, and so much of that goes unused, whether it is because the data is sitting in disparate systems that do not play well together, or because of the lack of expertise or resources to truly benefit from the power of it. In this episode of One Vision, Theo and Bradley play host to three thought leaders from Curinos –– Sarah Welch, Suraya Randawa, and Rutger van Faassen –– to talk about how financial institutions can harness the power of intelligent data to build digital relationships at scale, and create new competitive advantage for the digital future.

Joshua Galloway - CEO of Lepricon
Galloway has been a gamer since he was a child. His father worked at Litton Industries which made gyroscopes for missile defence systems in the US – which also made microwave ovens – but he brought home the latest PCs. As a result, Galloway and his twin brother spent a lot of time on the PC – as well as fighting off their other four siblings – and were the only kids on the block to have a PC in the home. Gaming and basic coding fascinated them with Galloway now heading up one of the fastest moving blockchain gaming platforms in Lepricon and his brother working in the game development industry. “Games have changed a lot since then,” he admits. “We played games like Olympics which basically consisted of two dots running around a track. Then we got an upgrade to a games console similar to an Atari. “But whatever we had, we often had a family games night. It was in our blood.” Galloway took a job at God Games, part of Rockstar Games and the maker of the popular Grand Theft Auto. He had a choice to go to New York or Hong Kong. “I came for one year and I’m still here 20 years later.” To find out more, tune in for the quick fire round with Joshua.

The AI equilibrium, Maeve Bleahene, Co-founder and Head of Operations at Peroptyx
Traditionally, the AI and Machine Learning sectors have been a male-dominated industry. Findings from the 2020 World Economic Forum report state that women make up only 26 percent of data and AI positions in the workforce. Yet, 66 percent of respondents in Deloitte’s The State of Women in AI survey reported that having more women working within an organisation can only benefit a business and increase success. Ronan talks to Maeve Bleahene, Co-founder and Head of Operations at Peroptyx about this and more. Maeve talks about her background, what drove her to become an entrepreneur, what does Peroptyx does, and how to get more women to enter the AI and Machine Learning workforce. Maeve also talks about reducing bias in AI, why the human element is an important part of a successful AI strategy, and where she sees AI heading. More about Maeve: Having co-founded and built a successful machine learning company, which recently raised €1.7 million from the ground up,  Maeve is a firm believer that the AI industry requires more female roles and insights. This is something that she is determined to help with at Peroptyx, with three new female hires on the cards before the end of the year which will bring their team to a 50/50 gender ratio.

Teaching Retrieval Practice, Spacing and Interleaving - Podsie with Joshua Ling
Former 8th Grade middle school teacher Joshua Ling started Podsie because he wanted to support his students in and out of the classroom.  In this podcast with Ebony Ximines-Parke to tell us how this worked. What is Podsie? Podsie combines the research-backed learning strategies of retrieval practice, spacing, and interleaving, customized by the mastery data of each individual student, to enhance learning both inside and outside of the classroom. They want to ensure that the hard work that teachers put into teaching doesn’t go to waste, while ensuring that they are supporting the learning needs of their individual students. How does the learning science come into play? Retrieval Practice Retrieval practice is an incredibly powerful strategy in which students actively draw out previously-taught knowledge from their brains, thus enhancing "diverse forms of learning, including memory, problem solving, and generalization to new situations." When they challenge students to frequently and intentionally retrieve knowledge, they grow in their abilities to retain and quickly access information. The team at Podsie believe that both retention and quick retrieval are essential foundations for students when it comes to "deeper learning" and transferring skills and conventions to different contexts. Traditionally, quizzes and tests are used in the classroom as a form of retrieval practice. At Podsie, they completely combine the research-backed power of frequent, low-stakes retrieval practice with spacing and interleaving to enhance the learning of students. Twitter

Saro McKenna, Co Founder of Alien Worlds
In a time when play to earn is the echo that follows gamers around, Alien Worlds is converting people to mass adoption through strategy and governance. It’s like sneaking extra shredded vegetables into children’s dinners; they don’t even know they are eating it. Likewise, the gamers have no idea that they are building something much bigger than mined Trillion on a planet in a galaxy far, far away. Let’s start with the basics. Alien Worlds is a metaverse with seven planets. On metaverses more later. Launched last year, it’s the biggest game on WAX and possibly on blockchain and last month it flip flopped in and out of first and second place in all dApps globally with PancakeSwap. It happened quite quickly and then some. First of all, Alien Worlds was the first game on blockchain to break through 100,000 users, then one million users, then two million. Now it’s surging at 2.5 million users. It is literally limitless. Your host is Jillian Godsil, award winning journalist, broadcaster and author.

It’s the FinTech Groundhog Day
Have we truly fulfilled the promise of fintech? How do you look beyond what is easy and serve communities who have long been ignored by traditional financial services, such as migrants? What is best for the greater good? How do we create change at scale? Perhaps the only way to unbake systemic racism within financial services is to change the ingredients and those that are preparing the meal, as well as for whom we are preparing the meal. Everyone deserves a seat at the table. In this week’s One Vision, Theo and Bradley welcome Nina Mohanty back on the show to talk about her new brainchild, Bloom Money, an app that is “built by migrants, for migrants”.

Surviving the PayPal Wars and crypto insights with Eric Jackson, PayPal Mafia, TransitNet and more
Leveraging Virtual Data Rooms and Title Registry for Crypto Adoption, and Accounts from the PayPal Wars with Eric Jackson at TransitNet Eric M. Jackson Early-PayPal. Technology Executive and Serial Entrepreneur. Author of “The PayPal Wars.” Eric M. Jackson is a technology executive who played a critical role in building PayPal and subsequently created multiple successful businesses. An award-winning author and sought-after speaker, Jackson is part of the so-called PayPal Mafia that went on to found and develop some of the world’s top technology companies. Early in his career, after a brief stint as a financial consultant, Jackson was recruited by Peter Thiel to join the startup team at PayPal. There he served as PayPal’s first head of U.S. marketing and oversaw its initial product marketing efforts. At a critical moment when the young company was bleeding millions of dollars each month, Jackson was placed in charge of developing and implementing PayPal’s transaction-based revenue model, which helped turn around its fortunes and lead it to profitability. During Jackson’s time at PayPal, the company grew from 2,500 users to 25 million, went public, and was acquired by eBay. Currently, Jackson is the CEO and co-founder of CapLinked, a venture-backed technology company that develops cloud-based information control software. Dubbed the “go-to place for setting up and closing deals” by the Wall Street Journal, CapLinked’s diverse list of global clients include Amazon, Ernst & Young, FTI Consulting, Roche, Founders Fund, Hess, KPMG, Takeda, and many others. Jackson is also the co-founder of TransitNet, a fintech company that provides tools to assist with title verification for cryptocurrencies. The company’s title registry service allows parties to generate a trusted third-party record of ownership for crypto wallets. Additionally, following his time at PayPal, Jackson founded a venture called World Ahead Media, which he grew to profitability before it was acquired. He also served on the boards of a number of organizations and technology startups, including CritiqueIt, Inc., a collaboration software company that was acquired in 2018 by 2U, Inc. (Nasdaq: TWOU). His book, The PayPal Wars, which chronicles the tumultuous origins of PayPal, won the Writers Notes Book Award and was hailed by Tom Peters as “the best description of business strategy unfolding in a world changing at warp speed.”  A frequent commentator on technology and policy, Jackson has appeared on Bloomberg, CNN, Fox News, and MSNBC, and he has been quoted in publications ranging from The Economist to the New York Times. Jackson has spoken at conferences around the world, including the World Knowledge Forum in Seoul, the Lang Di Fintech Conference in Shanghai, and the inaugural Reboot Conference in San Francisco. He also served as the keynote speaker at events hosted by the Cato Institute, the Reason Foundation, and the National Federation of Republican Assemblies. Jackson graduated with honors from Stanford University, where he was editor-in-chief of The Stanford Review, studied overseas in Moscow, and served as a student representative on the university’s Board of Trustees. He lives in Los Angeles with his wife and daughter.

Herding Cats - why Academics and Crypto folk are so alike
Nick Almond, Finance.Vote Herding cats is how Nick Almond describes managing academics and suggests that achieving consensus and governance in a university space is akin to running a decentralized organisation. As a result when he met blockchain and DAOs (decentralized autonomous organizations) he was all in. Almond’s arrival into blockchain was nevertheless a windy path. He studied physics for ten years – from undergraduate right the way through to his PhD. He became particularly interested in the intersection of physical systems on the biological – part of condensed matter science – and discovered that the most fascinating things happen at surfaces. Despite being heavily involved in this work, which involved examining DNA through spectroscopy (using light to illustrate molecules). Almond came to realise the life of a scientist was not for him. “Being an experimental physicist requires an incredible level of methodological rigor. As I reached the end of my PhD, I began teaching to supplement my income and discovered I loved teaching people, helping to find the next scientist. I loved the concept of teaching.” Perhaps another intersection but it led Almond to becoming a mathematics lecturer in the Astrophysics Research Institute at John Moore university – back to his first principles – and to number theory. From there it was a small jump into cryptography. To find out more, tune into the podcast. Your host is Jillian Godsil, award winning journalist, broadcaster and author.
