Interview with Business Development Consultant, Danette Wallace

Where are you from and what is your work background?
I’m from California, USA. I have been working in market and business analysis in the IT/Telecom industry for the past 20 years. Now I am focusing my energies on the blockchain industry.
Meet the Blockpass Team!

What is your role at Blockpass?
I am a Business Development Consultant for Blockpass

What do your daily activities look like?
My daily activities include connecting with contacts in the field via conferences, meetings, email, or phone in an effort to set up collaborations. I also write articles and give talks.

How did you get involved in Blockpass?
I was assigned to the Blockpass project when I was hired by Infinity Blockchain Labs, which is one of the joint venture partners of Blockpass.

What’s your favourite blockchain related benefit?
My favorite blockchain related benefit is the shift in control and ownership from centralized databases to individuals. In essence, decentralization.
Where do you see the industry headed over the next 5 years?
In the next 5 years I believe we will see the blockchain industry enable a large shift in control from central organizations to decentralized nodes. Initially it will be realized in the financial sector and will expand from there. When blockchain reaches the tipping point, it will have a massive effect on how we exchange value whether that be financially or in goods and services. A decentralized infrastructure will completely change market dynamics.
If you could spend an hour with anyone from history, who would it be and why?
Oh that’s easy. I would want to spend an hour with Nikola Tesla, one of the greatest minds of all time. But here’s the catch, I would want to talk with young Tesla not old Tesla. I would spend the hour giving him insight on what to avoid and what to push for in the future. I would warn him to avoid people who will try to destroy his efforts like JP Morgan or people who will try to steal his inventions and pass them off as their own like Thomas Edison. Most importantly though, I would tell him to not give up on his dream to build towers that provide free wireless electricity to the world. Could you imagine what the world would be like now if his dream of providing free electricity was realized in 1901 when he first started building Wardenclyffe tower? We would have a different world right now! There would be no such thing as third world countries!

Interview with Technical SubLeader, Tin Nguyen

Where are you from and what is your work background?
My career started off at GameLoft (a famous mobile game company). I experienced various environments and roles in game development (Gameplay, VFX , Network ) and some interesting experiences as a SaiGon Technical Leader of WHAT Game. After 6 years working on gaming industries, I slowly lost my interest and wanted to challenge myself in fintech. My new interest in blockchain technology.
Meet the Blockpass Team!
What is your role at Blockpass?
I’m the Technical Leader for the Blockpass team. My main role is focused on working on the integration of external services with Blockpass along with developing API, Dashboard and SDK also. Supporting external service teams to ensure that their integration is smooth. I am also working on setting up some automation tools (Jenkins , Dockerlize) and bot testing. In my spare time, I usually take time to read news of blockchain technology, and think of ways to apply them to Blockpass.
What do your daily activities look like?
I start my working day discussing past tasks, current tasks, any issues that need technical support or business decisions, I collect and analyze feedback / suggestion / report error from external services and brainstorm about what we should do next to improve the Blockpass eco-systems. I usually work on prototypes first and analyze results with the team later on. Afternoons I usually spend about 1–2 hours to review and feedback team member pull requests.
How did you get involved in Blockpass?
I knew Blockpass from Toan Hoang — my best colleague. That was first time I heard about blockchain. After a few months, I decided to join IBL (a top blockchain company in VietNam) and be a part of Blockpass.
What’s your favourite blockchain related benefit?
The transparency. That is what makes blockchain different from other database solutions.
Where do you see the industry headed over the next 5 years?
Well I would hope to see blockchain become more scalable and solve more practical real-life problems.
If you could spend an hour with anyone from history, who would it be and why?
I would choose Leonardo Da Vinci. I read a lot about his inventions and wonder how he could have sketched a tank, helicopter, parachute … from the late 15th century. Most of them have correct working principles similar to those found in the modern ones
