Ian Balina Compares Boomstarter.Network to the Early Days of Netflix

Ian Balina, the cryptocurrency evangelist, met Boomstarter.Network team during his tour in Russia at a conference on June 15, 2018.

At the Q&A session, Kirill Maskaev of Boomstarter.Network asked Ian about the prospects of the blockchain-based platform. It will allow to help generate pre-orders for startups from all over the world. Unlike existing platforms, it will not discriminate against specific countries and will speed up transactions, without relying on intermediaries like banks or payment systems.

In reply, Ian Balina talked about the rising power of crowdfunding, and the good outlook for innovation in this space: “It’s like building Netflix in 1990s,” he said.

Netflix was founded in late 1990s as the world’s first online DVD rental store. In 2018, Netflix became the world’s largest digital media and entertainment company.
