E132: Colin Pape, Founder of Presearch – Interview

October 25, 2017


This is an excellent interview around bitcoin, ICOs (initial coin offerings) and the future of search. This interview is with Colin Pape. Colin is the CEO of Presearch. Presearch is an open, decentralized search engine that rewards community members with Presearch Tokens for their usage, contribution to, and promotion of the platform (that’s from their website, nice description I thought).

They are in the middle of the ICO craze. We get to hear how Colin came up with the idea for Presearch and how they sold millions of dollars in Presearch Tokens. It’s a great story.

Colin is also the Founder and CEO of ShopCity.com, which provides local communities a platform to connect consumers and local businesses online.

Here are some other things we talked about:

-How did you market your ICO?
-What’s the first product you’re going to release? What’s the long term vision for Presearch?
-How are your tokens regulated?
-How will you make money?
-What do you like to do in your free time?
