What about it ISN’T interesting? You have a progressive technology like blockchain, which is experimental. You have a notable car salesman pushing it through. And you have it being adopted into the government because of this car salesman. That alone is fascinating. A lot of people, when they hear that (myself included) Bernie Moreno is the one bringing Blockchain to Cleveland doesn’t really add up. Why is he the guy bringing Blockchain anywhere? Why Cleveland? That’s why it’s so fascinating. Mike (my cohost) is based in Cleveland, so when I was there, I was talking to some of the people involved in the initiative and they didn’t even know what Blockchain was. So you have this situation of government employees tasked with making Blockchain work inside a city, and that’s completely opposite of where crypto and blockchain started, which was this very anarchistic ideology. They wanted governments to fail, they wanted fiat currency to go away, they wanted to replace it with something that’s open and ungovernable. And now you have this city who’s using Blockchain inside the government where it will be regulated and legal and governable. So the story is filled with conflicting points of view, and that’s what makes a strong story. The next installment drops tomorrow, on Thursday, March 21. In the second episode, we’ll explore some of the history of blockchain and where these communities are popping up- Puerto Rico, Las Vegas - and interview some people who are using Blockchain technology in actual businesses today.
