Twenty Thirty, a Swiss blockchain company, recently announced the Pillar project, which will raise money through a token crowdsale to create a next-generation wallet designed to hold all your assets and become your personal digital assistant powering all your devices.
The Pillar project is the brainchild of David Siegel, whose 2010 book, “Pull”, described a future with no apps and with the personal data locker at the centre of your life. Siegel sat down to talk today with Finance Magnates about his vision.
The interview was broadcast live and a video recording is available here :
We discussed the current blockchain token ecosystem, how we can decentralize the internet, the future of brokers and banks in a world without control over client relationships, how you should build your postmodern investment portfolio, why pre-ICOs are the place to be, and much more.
The Pillar token is a meta-token. It is designed to power all the services and transactions you use during your day. To make your life simple, you’ll just see your normal currency plus your pillar balance. All the tokens necessary will be one level down, paying for the goods and services you use.
David built a web-design and strategy agency in San Francisco in the 1990s and sold it to KPMG. He has been at the forefront of technology and venture investing for 30 years. He has written five books about technology and business. In 2016, he was a candidate to be the dean of Stanford business school. He is an expert on blockchain, future technologies, angel investing, and startups.
