Blockchain – tulevaisuuden digiloikka

I will be the first speaker at a blockchain event in Helsinki on 22 March 2017, called "Blockchain – tulevaisuuden digiloikka", which I think means "Blockchain - the digital leap of the future".

Chainfrog in Tampere All Bright! Magazine

Is it better to know everyone, or everything?

It's been a busy seven days. Last week Kimmo and I made it in to the center of Tampere to record a podcast with Leonidas, which provided us with an entertaining afternoon and wonderful views of the center of Tampere. Those guys sure have a nice office space! We're hoping that early next year we [...]
