Transcript of Part VI

Can you co-exist with Ethereum and Bitcoin?

We certainly can co-exist. The question is a matter of focus. We’re focused on enterprise. We care about the developer community and we will support and continue to support the startup community and the developer community. But we care about the enterprise. And if we can get enterprise grade first, then the entire world and the rest of the developer community simply benefits from that, right?

And so, in the long term, it remains to be seen what will happen. I think that there will not be 100 different cryptocurrencies or platforms out there. I expect the market to narrow over time in the same way that they are sort of a handful of credit card companies in the world. There will be just a handful of global public DLTs that get used. And we’re clearly focused on a piece of this, and no one else is.

It’s a brave new world and I’m sitting with one of the pioneers in this space. It’s not blockchain, it’s Hashgraph, Hedera Hashgraph, is such a pleasure.  

Thank you so much.
