The Medium Rules: Long-Term Trends In Media and Technology – Episode 3 – Tom McLaughlin & David Wodka

Podcast Episode 3 Now Live!

Masternodes and the Future of Crypto Mining, with guests Tom McLaughlin & David Wodka.

As blockchain technology evolves, more and more blockchain networks are adopting a “proof of stake” concept with respect to operation and governance as opposed to a “proof of work” concept. But what does this mean, and why is this important? And, further, how should we think about these two modalities in terms of the broader blockchain ecosystem whether it be from a technical perspective or from the perspective of an investor.

In this episode of The Medium Rules, Alan Baldachin sat down with two of the four co-founders of the New York City-based startup Blockstake, Inc. to canvas a variety of topics related to the blockchain in general and proof of stake mining in particular. Blockstake is a crypto mining startup solely focused on blockchain networks based on proof of stake, whereby network participants can earn rewards in the form of more network tokens based on “staking” a certain amount of tokens up front. In exchange for staking, these trusted network participants earn the right to run “masternodes” which perform a variety of functions on the network, including transaction verification as well as governance. Tom McLaughlin is the CEO of Blockstake and David Wodka is the COO, and both Tom and David bring a wealth of enthusiasm and expertise to bear in a lively and wide-ranging discussion covering the basics of blockchain technology (hint: think of a decentralized version of the early aughts Napster network), masternodes and proof of stake mining versus proof of work mining, as well as the origin story of how Blockstake got its start. At the end of the podcast, we try and take a step back and look into the future to identify long-term trends with respect to the blockchain, as well as emerging projects that are of interest to Tom and David.

The Medium Rules: Long-Term Trends In Media and Technology – Episode 2 – Evan Kraut & Guy Poreh

Podcast Episode 2 Now Live!

Alignment: Accelerating Funded Startups and the Agency of the Future, with guests Evan Kraut & Guy Poreh.

With the proliferation of funded e-commerce startups focused on the direct-to-consumer, how is brand created and how can startups adapt to the changing tastes and trends to reach consumers and drive sales? Further, what are some models for agencies to reinvent themselves to not only survive, but to thrive as the media landscape evolves? How can agencies be better aligned with their clients and drive success both for the client and the agency stakeholders?

The Medium Rules host, Alan Baldachin, is joined in the HBA Podcast Studio in New York City by Evan Kraut, who runs Grey Adventures for Grey Group, and Guy Poreh, founder and CEO of Playground. Grey Adventures is best characterized as Grey’s “skunk works” team, focused on developing innovative products and services that fuel new revenue streams for Grey’s brand clients, its partners and the agency itself. And Playground is a “record label” for startups which takes an “immersive” approach to partnering with funded startups on sales and marketing to “accelerate fame”. In this episode of The Medium Rules Alan, Evan and Guy cover such ground as the success story behind Quip, the intersection of frontier technology and the traditional agency model, branding issues related to legal cannabis businesses, and, finally, some thoughts about what the agency of the future might look like.
