I invited Ephraim on the podcast to talk with me about the enterprise use of blockchain solutions, trust based relationship between collaboratively working enterprise teams and how those behaviors impact how that changes the way a blockchain should work. We talk about how and why we should be more critical of what is typically described as a blockchain solution ( and the difference between Bitcoin blockchain and Git). Lastly our discussion points out ways to to support more collaboration, and promote more trusting relationships with the data structure of blockchain.
