Jae Yang, CEO Tacen Inc. #bridgingblockchains Interoperability is a multisyllabic word for a multi-faceted problem. How do you get blockchains to communicate with one another? Until recently, there’s been no easy way to achieve this, leaving assets isolated and smart contract-powered dapps siloed on their respective protocols. Before crypto assets can take over the world, first they need to escape the valley where they originated, a task which calls for building bridges.

Duncan Davidson Founding Partner Bullpen Capital, the pioneer of Post Seed investing. Previously, two bubble era IPOs (InterTrust and Covad) and two other startups (SkyPilot and Xumii, the first mobile cloud app). Being the pitch person on one of them at the peak of the bubble, I learned firsthand that venture capital is a cyclical business.
