Crypto Confidence podcast

Nov 2, 2018

Today we talk about jobs in tech and Blockchain with the wonderful Natalie Furness co-founder of WiTechRev, a regular meet up for women to get into sexy Industry 4.0 technologies; Blockchain, Crypto, AI/ML, Big Data, VR, AR, Automation, Cyber Security, IoT.

We discover what Natalie’s background is, how she became interested in technology, primarily for healthcare in the beginning, and how those technologies can help make information clearer for all concerned. This then morphed into an interest in Blockchain and how it can improve processes across all industries.

You can get in touch with Natalie via her website on her own Twitter on the WiTechRev Twitter and on the Facebook page

Crypto Alphabet:

C is for Consensus.

So many possibilities for the letter C but Consensus won. Consensus is generally an agreement about something : an idea or opinion that is shared by all the people in a group. A consensus mechanism is a fault-tolerant mechanism that is used in computer and blockchain systems to achieve the necessary agreement on a single data value or a single state of the network among distributed processes or multi-agent systems. It is useful in record-keeping, among other things.

Listen to the podcast for more about this and next time we’ll delve into the letter D.
