Author Fernando Sanchez

Smart, dexterous. Tactile, intelligent, educated, and well-read. A little impatient, wholly intolerant to bad spelling and lazy grammar. Writer, poet, and lover of those who love the side that we don't see. Ireland-based, but my mind wanders the world. Adventurous, and non-smoker. Photographer of all that is worth being portrayed for its intrinsic beauty. Widowed father of two beautiful young creatures. There is a destiny, not a destination, in my life. There is an admiration for she who may be gone, but not forgotten. Through words we live, and through words we are remembered. Join me in my journey...

Barbara Bickham, or a life spent in blockchain, the ultimate intersection between technology and money

“Well, being an entrepreneur has nothing to do with starting a company, that’s just part of it. What inspires you to create that company is the important part. What drives you to go down that road. I think that entrepreneurs are naturally born leaders, they like to shape and mold things. They are naturally curious people. They ask a lot of questions. And they are very clear on themselves. They clearly know their vision and mission. And they like to have people come along and help them”

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.
