    Halsey Minor | VideoCoin & Live Planet

    Halsey Minor has been founding technology companies since CNET in 1993, including NBCi, OpenDNS, Salesforce, Uphold Inc., Google Voice, and his latest ventures, VideoCoin and Live Planet.
    VideoCoin (https://www.videocoin.io/) aims to compete with Amazon, Google and Microsoft – by sharply reducing cost for encoding, storing and streaming video … by decentralising the infrastructure … rewarding machines for processing video, similar to how Bitcoin miners are rewarded for confirming transactions.
    Live Planet (https://www.liveplanet.net/) is a virtual reality company, set to put affordable VR sets of cameras and goggles – into the hands of consumers in the very near future.
    In this episode we're talking about virtual reality, cloud sourcing video encoding via blockchain, and Halsey's experiences in the early days of the internet in the 1990s.
    I spoke with Halsey via non-VR call from my new podcast studio in Byron Bay, Australia on October 2, 2018.

Nick Hollins is a genius

His interviewing style and guests are brilliant. This podcast discusses deep technology without being overly technical, esoteric concepts in simple terms, and the possibilities for huge social impact in a way where you actually feel excited and empowered. It will melt your brain...in a good way. Each episode really commands more than one listen. It’s THAT good.
