This is the Startup Junkies Podcast. These are the stories of the people that are afflicted with creating the next great products and services that are going to change lives - not just in America, but worldwide. We're going to tell the stories of the next great beer producer, products and apparel makers, and the stories of people that don't accept the status quo and that want to make things better. 

Welcome to the Startup Junkies Podcast.

Nov 19, 2018

Dr. Mary Lacity and Dr. Zach Steelman, join this episode of The Startup Junkies Podcast to discuss practical business applications of blockchain, and the different paths that led them to work together. Mary shares her story of missing out early on Microsoft, a near miss on the boom of the world wide web - and her internal declaration that she would not let this third major opportunity pass her by once she learned about blockchain technology. Zach's experience has been more of a practitioner with an insatiable appetite since Bitcoin launched a decade ago - and he is now teaching students in the Walton college, working with them to develop practical business applications on the Ethereum platform.

These two have teamed up to lead the Blockchain Center of Excellence they at the University of Arkansas - a program funded by a Governor Asa Hutchinson initiative on a mission to develop research partnerships, educate the community, and accelerate industry adoption of blockchain technology. https://walton.uark.edu/enterprise/blockchain.php
