In this episode of Creating a Humanist Blockchain Future (Youtube, Soundcloud, iTunes), we interview Mike Goldin, the lead engineer for ConsenSys AdTech who works on adChain, a ConsenSys and MetaX joint venture. He’s the co-inventor of Token-Curated Registries (along with James Young and Ameen Soleimani), an emerging cryptoeconomic primitive that allows us to create decentralized lists. As always, let me know if you have any feedback!
