Founder and architect of Nexus, Colin Cantrell joined Tatiana and Josh to talk about the future of the internet. Hint: it’s decentralized, open source and easy to use.
Colin retells how the internet was designed to be decentralized, but became more of a Mutually Assured Destruction scenario. He goes into explaining the technical background of his company Nexus, comparing it to the “old internet” we have today.
According to Colin, the internet and Bitcoin can both be considered prototypes of their kind, they both gained popularity very quickly, and as such, there are security flaws and inconveniences that never got fixed. Nexus is building up slowly, based on satellites and other devices running the Nexus OS, and incentivizing everyone to contribute.
Colin gives his thoughts on how new technologies can reignite our imagination and speaks up for collaboration as a driver of exponential growth. He delivers an inspiring message on the future of humans and the internet.
