Chat_71 – Redesigning the Internet for Fun & for the Revolution, with Mathias Buus and Paolo Ardoino

Following up on the release of and a simple to use, responsive, encrypted, & scalable P2P data sharing protocol in Holepunch, its network backend, we bring the CEO of Holepunch Mathias Buus, and the CSO of Holepunch and CTO of Bitfinex, Paolo Ardoino on the show to talk about what the long term vision of this project truly is. This isn’t just a better video chat app, this is the first building block in a plan to rebuild the internet & potentially break down the walls of the internet’s major platforms. Are they onto something, or is it a pipe dream? Listen to hear what they say in today’s chat.
