96: Lightstreams with Michael Smolenski

Lightstreams ahead of the rest!

Michael is the Founder and CEO of Lightstreams, a blockchain protocol for greater dApp speed and privacy.

He takes issue with the hype surrounding blockchain technology as a one-size-fits-all approach, and believes that we should view distributed ledgers as part of a suite of complementary technologies that can be used to usher in the advent of a decentralized internet. Consequently, central to this belief is the need for a combination of distributed off-chain storage, to enable cheap storage of files and privacy that is otherwise non-existent on a public ledger.

“Lightstreams truly revolutionises the manner in which information flows. By using, blockchain and decentralised storage together puts individuals back where they belong – in the driving seat. ” Diginomica.
