Minter Dialogue Episode #185
This interview is with Chris Bates, Chief Security Officer at Bitland, an NGO that uses the blockchain technology to help register the cadastre of land, with a focus on African countries — specifically Ghana — for now. In this stimulating conversation with Chris, we unpack the blockchain and bitcoin technologies, unblock some of the preconceptions and misconceptions, and exchange on the challenges of implementation. We also look at some of the hot issues of cyber security, an ever present concern for any business on the Internet.
Bitland was one of the Top Ten laureates at Netexplo 2016
