    Blockchain Innovators - Conor Svensson and Daniel Feichtinger

    In this episode of Blockchain Innovators, Conor Svensson, founder and CEO of Web3 Labs, talks to Daniel Feichtinger, Innovation Marketer at Digital Asset, Co-founder & CTO of Hyperledger.

    Whilst his current job title may be misleading, Daniel is a technologist and innovator at heart, having been the co-founder and CTO of Hyperledger, which he started back in 2014.

    In the conversation, Conor and Daniel discuss the early days of Hyperledger and how the blockchain landscape looked back then - it was mainly about bitcoin and coloured coins, as Ethereum hadn’t launched at that point. They also go into detail about Digital Asset’s DAML platform and Daniel's work leading the Interwork Alliance’s IWA Framework, an initiative by the GBBC which they’re both involved in.

    Given that Daniel has been living and breathing enterprise blockchain for over 8 years now, he provides some great perspective on this space, and we know you’ll enjoy this conversation!

    Weiwu and the Alphawallet team have been very focussed on tokens for the past 4 years, going deep in their exploration of what’s possible, such as autographing NFTs and token attestations, and it was absolutely fascinating to hear his perspective on how they will change our everyday interactions online.
