A Verifiable Future
This is a special episode that was initially recorded for Smart Friends with Eric Jorgenson. The conversation covered enough financial topics that it felt irresponsible not to share it here as well. Simply irresponsible. Thanks, Eric! Check out Smart Friends.
Omar ElNaggar is a hedge fund quant and data nerd. He is the founder and CEO of Weavechain. Weavechain is a platform that gives enterprise data new web3 superpowers. The concepts discussed here-in could put an end to fraud as we know it today.
Over the next few years, there will be a data gold rush as every database in the world gains two key functions: verifiability and monetization.
It could be the end of financial fraud, and the birth of a trillion-dollar global data marketplace.
This conversation was the most I had heard or spoken the term Web3 in the year of 2023. It was fun to dive into real technology with actual use-cases that will add real value in the world right now if they can find distribution.
