In fact, Oliver’s organization advises org, large enterprise organizations how to adopt blockchain. And on the flip side, it advises financial institutions or how to invest in this sector. So let’s start on the organizational side because there’s a lot of companies out there that are looking at blockchain and scratching their head a little bit, knowing that this is the future where they need to go, both from a data aspect, but from a monetization aspect. Tell me about your process and how you work with those companies.
Dr. Oliver Krause (CEO/Founder, Untitled Inc.):01:25
Well, basically we have a very strategic view on the field. So we clearly say you’ve got to first be very clear on the products and services side. Which problem are you going to be addressed? And you really need a blockchain and BLT solution. And then there the focus should be on user experiences about what user experience do you provide on second, there’s the operations and the business model aspects. And as an on-efficiency topics, which efficiencies can you rise? And also, how do you make money?
Matt Bird (Show Host, Traders Network Show):01:47
