Interview with Stephan Tual

Posted on Posted in Podcasts, Resources

An internationally recognised expert in smart contracts, smart property and decentralised blockchain applications, Stephan Tual is the former CCO of Ethereum, the next-generation blockchain that raised $18.9m as part of the world’s second largest crowdfunder. Stephan is the Founder and COO of http://slock.it, a project at the intersection of the IoT and blockchain. Slock.it explores how Ethereum light nodes embedded in connected cars, homes, shared white goods, etc. could revolutionise the emerging Sharing Economy infrastructure by enabling anyone to rent, sell or share their property without middlemen.

His current focus is on smart contracts/smart property and the development of decentralised applications on top of a blockchain based web3 infrastructure.

Stephan has three startups under his belt and brings 20 years of enterprise IT experience to the Slock.it project. Before discovering the Blockchain, Stephan held CTO positions at leading data analytics companies in London with clients including VISA Europe and BP. He regularly speaks at conferences and community events.
