E149: Dan Gailey, CEO at Synapse AI – Interview

April 10, 2018


This is our new series on all things blockchain, called Flyover Block. This interview is with Dan Gailey, CEO at Synapse AI. They are building a next generation data platform on top of the blockchain.

What they want to do is ambitious, connecting data from all different sources and providing compensation to these data sources. These data sources could be large data companies or you and me.

It’s ambitious. That’s why I love it.

Here are some other things we talked about:

-What’s the ideal first use case, type of data you’d want to collect and sell?
-What type of data will you work with? Consumer and business data?
-How does the platform work? You tokenize the data? Explain what that means in detail.
-What do you like to do in your free time? Awesome answer here. You can skip to the end to hear it.
