Jonathan Symmonds is an accomplished animator. He’s worked with industry heavyweights such as James Cameron for Avatar, Spike Jonze on Where the Wild Things Are, Trollhunter, and many others.So the man knows a thing or two about animation, how the industry works, and what’s needed now. But of course, blockchain is not about the now, it’s about the tomorrow. So I wanted to know how he felt about the future use of blockchain technology in the animation industry.

Alex Mashinsky: Internet 3.0 has the potential to reclaim what’s good for the people through blockchain
Fighting the monopolies which dominate our lives is not a new game for Alex Mashinsky, As an immigrant to the US, he decided to take on AT&T which was the most profitable company in the US back then. Almost all of its profit came from international voice call settlements. Mashinsky proposed to replace the decade-old practice of charging users $3 a minute to call relatives abroad with a free internet-based service he called Voice Over Internet Protocol. Few believed such service could even work, as the entire internet was a slow and cumbersome dial-up system that used the phone network as its backbone. Mashinsky persevered though, and today over 3.bn people all over the world freely use the technology he helped pioneer.
