Munn: Vermont Is a Great Place for Blockchain
Speaking to Bitsonline at the 2018 CoinAgenda Global conference in Las Vegas, Munn said he believed Vermont has a lot of realistic opportunities for blockchain adoption.
Vermont has a good work-life balance, Munn said, so people could start blockchain companies in the state and still have active personal lives with plenty to do outside work.
Additionally, Mun told Bitsonline that Vermont has a large enough population — over 600 thousand — to build a huge blockchain community, while still being small enough to keep it close-knit and productive. Because of that, Munn said he is able to make connections with local and state leaders and policymakers, introducing them to blockchain and informing them on why adopting the technology would be great for the state.
Aside from his blockchain consultancy firm, Interchain LLC., Munn uses his Interchain Live YouTube channel to pursue his goal of building a blockchain community in Vermont, as well as spreading awareness about the technology around the globe.
On his channel, Munn interviews people from the blockchain industry, learning about what they do and why they think blockchain has the potential to change the world. He also publishes vlog-style videos, where he talks to his audience about various topics, such as services he has discovered, as well as his opinions on issues in the community.
CoinAgenda is a conference series with events all around the world. CoinAgenda Global, their flagship event held every year in Las Vegas, showcases the top blockchain and crypto startups looking to raise funds through ICOs.
