Good episode? Give it some love!
In the past I have gone out interviewing founders and CEOs to discuss the growth of their companies, why they’re disruptive, where the company is going in one to five years, so on and so forth. This has been really exciting, but many of the companies that I’ve been covering and a lot of the companies that Outsell’s analyst team have been sourcing have blockchain technology, AI technology, and pieces of technology that are sometimes a little confusing. I myself don’t like to admit that there are many pieces of this technology that I still don’t understand. Maksim Izmaylov (Max) the founder of Winding Tree came to my rescue to finally clear the air around everything related to block chain. Turns out, they’re not blocks on a chain…

Max is a hacker, serial entrepreneur, Y Combinator alumni, and is focused on tackling blockchain for the travel industry. Max and I dig into what blockchain is, why it is so useful, and what the implications are. We also touch on Max’s background, why he fell into the travel industry, and really do our best to uncover how blockchain is being used in travel, and where Winding Tree’s going.

You’ll notice me jump in throughout the discussion for clarity. This conversation was very eye opening and I hope you find it as useful as I have.
