At Fremont’s last Startup Grind meetup, Google developer evangelist, Miten Mehta, and blockchain expert, Ken Woodruff, discussed blockchain, artificial intelligence, and the value both provide to startups. Miten forecast how this phenomenon is set to disrupt current markets and value chains to create new business models and revenue channels. He further explained to the audience how blockchain technology can be used to create a permanent, public, and transparent ledger system for compiling data on sales, tracking digital use, and tracking payments to content creators. The topic was clearly of interest to the full house of attendees who expressed appreciation for the event’s format of education and interactive discussion.
