EP71: The Jaxx.io Crypto Wallet and Blockchain Interface w/ Charlie Shrem and Anthony Di Iorio
Huge interview for you today! Charlie Shrem and Anthony Di Iorio join Ashe to discuss how crypto currency “wallets” are turning into “blockchain interfaces” and the role that Jaxx.io is playing to push this idea forward into reality.
We start with a discussion comparing a standard web browser to current crypto wallets. Now that the internet of value is now upon us, “browsers” need to evolve...but how? Rather than only displaying information (which browsers do currently) how will they need to change to help us adapt to the changing digital environment where value ownership and transfer is possible. If the storage and transmission of crypto-tokens was the first purpose of a wallet, what are the next steps to owning and controlling other areas of our digital lives (personal, financial and other private information)?
Of course we chat about the Jaxx.io blockchain interface (aka “wallet”) and its future plans. What types of strategic partnerships will Charlie be able to secure so that Anthony’s vision of the Jaxx “browser” can be fulfilled? What about identity management and secure, blockchain based communication? You don’t want to miss this; the future of the value-based web is nearly at your fingertips.
Towards the end of the discussion, we chat about my experience in Offshore Banking and compare it to the user experience of what the Jaxx.io team is building and offering. Remember, all banks essentially own your “private keys” and are always in FULL CONTROL of your assets on deposit. Compare this to crypto wallets where you control and manage all of your information. While it requires a bit more responsibility on your end, the additional privacy, security and control offered is unparalleled.
The “Internet of Value” is upon us and it will change every aspect of how to manage and treat our digital lives. Could this be as big as when the “Internet of Information” was invented? How will it affect our online experiences and how will the free market adapt? How will entrepreneurs build new technologies on top of blockchains and help us protect our sensitive data as society gets used to this new digital value world? No one is certain, but we definitely live in exciting times.
