Stemiverse 0025 – Kieran Nolan – The School on the Blockchain

In this episode, Dr. Peter Dalmaris and Marcus Schappi talk with Kieran Nolan.

This episode is special because while it might not seem that it’s about education, it actually is! In this discussion, Kieran takes us for a ride in the world of networks, block chains, total online transparency, and 10-year-old students create their own cryptocurrencies. Stay with us, it will be worth it!
