Informed Choice Radio - personal finance peace of mind with Martin Bamford


Aug 20, 2018

Unless you've been living under a rock for the past few years, you're probably familiar with bitcoin and it's rollercoaster ride for cryptocurrency speculators.

I've resisted covering crypto on this podcast for a number of reasons. Most of the so-called expert guests put forward to speak on the subject are anything but. The last thing I want is to give a platform on this podcast to someone who might convince a listener to part with their hard-earned cash and speculate on something as worthless as bitcoin, or another digital coin.

My views on bitcoin are pretty well known, but I have got time for its underlying platform, the blockchain. That's why, when I came across today's guest Robert Koenig, I was excited to have an informed conversation about the really useful applications of this new technology.

Robert has lived in several European countries, speaks multiple languages and is a passionate believer in modern management technologies. His experience and knowledge of leadership has led to appearances on several television programmes.

Since 2015 Robert has been involved in Cryptocurrencies, investing in ICOs and shaping the industry from the application point of view.

His business XENTAVO emerged in 2015, and the company was founded in 2017. They've come a long way in a short time since then, designing a unique blockchain-powered platform offering civil service innovation to Small Countries around the world.

The XENTAVO team is supported by advisors comprised of the crypto industry’s best, brightest and most passionate. They've got decades of collective experience in building and implementing digital projects on a governmental level.

The XENTAVO team share a vision to make blockchain applications accessible and beneficial to Small Country governments across the world.

Here’s my conversation with Robert Koenig, blockchain solutions for small countries, in episode 347 of Informed Choice Radio.
