Could you explain blockchain in a few sentences? After this episode, we hope you'll be able to get close. Pamela Morgan, an attorney and educator, breaks down blockchain for us with the metaphorical help of ... kitties, yarn and pina coladas. There are thousands of blockchains, and you can use the technology for much more than cryptocurrencies like bitcoin or ethereum. (A blockchain mortgage, maybe?) We meet a couple who got married on blockchain. And we start with a "fix" about Apple's new software announcements. Dark mode: engaged.
A few links from this week's show: Some backstory for that Burning Man blockchain wedding, the marriage contract itself and more from Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference. Plus, if you're still having trouble explaining blockchain in a few sentences, we called on some friends for help.
