We wanted to hear from visionaries as, given the dose of realism we’ve been dishing out so far, some people might be starting to wonder if there was any future for blockchain in the energy industry. There certainly is…
And for episode 7, I’d like to welcome JoJo Hubbard, Co-Founder and CEO of Electron.
