OCC: Hello Michael, and thank you for taking the time to give us an interview. You’re a foundation whose aim is to facilitate everyone’s access to the Blockchain ecosystem. You’ve sort of already achieved this, with Lisk events and meet-ups happening all over the world and people talking about you frantically. What’s next for Lisk?
OCC: Hello Diana and thank you for taking the time to give us this interview. Tell me a bit about your company’s business model.
Diana: We’re called zkSystems and we’re developing a scalable Layer One DLT protocol which provides computationally weak devices with the possibility to outsource computation and storage to a public peer-to-peer network. We target smart factories and smart cities with lightweight devices such as sensors and gateways that lack hardware resources. With our solution we can attach them to a large infrastructure of nodes to outsource computation and storage directly. Lightweight devices can take part in the system via light clients. This way, we can automate data streams as opposed to the cloud; we can also do it in a hardware-efficient way as opposed to edge computing.

I realised there’s a huge scope for cryptocurrencies in different fields and industries, so I started experimenting with cryptocurrencies from 2013 while still in university, completing a Bachelor of Law. However, until 2016 I did not realise the true impact of Blockchain. [Read more…] about Blockchain Interview: Arnab Naskar, Business Strategy (Lead) STOKR
