In July in San Francisco, I moderated a panel at “Distributed 2018: Unlocking the Global Power of Decentralized Business.” The title of our discussion was “Innovate or Reinvent?” and the panelists were Amber Baldet, cofounder and CEO of Clovyr, Matt Roszak, cofounder and chairman of Bloq, and Lily Liu, cofounder of We had a wide-ranging discussion, which included topics such as how the “Crypto 50” combined have more budget for blockchain development services than Fortune 50 companies, how developing in the blockchain space and revolutionize an existing market requires that the new offering be many times better than existing options, and why enterprise needs to wait to get permission rather than ask for forgiveness, which doesn’t hinder new projects. We also discussed how government is also a competitor in the space, that building entities don’t include only decentralized projects and corporations, and how regulation could affect the development of the space.

Thank you to our sponsors!
