Mance Harmon - CEO of Hedera: Crypto & DeFi - Everything Will Become Tokenised In The Future


CEO & Co-Founder of Hedera

Today’s guest is a welcome addition to our ever growing roster of thought leaders who have used their enormous experience in business and technology combined with their old school nous to seamlessly transition into the expanding world of cryptocurrency, decentralised finance and the Blockchain.

Many of you who follow the show regularly will be aware that I believe we are approaching an enormous shift in the financial sector, as digital technology plays an increasingly important role in determining how we conduct our commerce, socialise and play.

Mance Harmon is a serial entrepreneur, computer scientist and technology executive who has racked up 20 years experience working for some of the leading multinational corporations and startups in the tech industry. He is a thought leader in the truest sense of the phrase when it comes to the development and delivery of advanced technologies, which is why I’m delighted to have him on the show and find out exactly how he sees the big plays that are happening in crypto.

He is someone who knows only too well the pitfalls of bringing an innovative new brand to market. As CEO of Hedera Hashgraph, Mance believes that, alongside his co-founder Leemon Baird, they have finally found the “philosopher’s stone” by solving the ongoing decentralised consensus issue that ensures a consensus algorithm is capable of maximising for both performance and security.

Hedera is a public proof-of-stake network, often described as the ‘trust layer of the internet’ that is powered by its native HBAR token. It is the only public ledger that uses a hashgraph consensus, which as Mance is keen to point out makes it a faster, more secure alternative to other blockchain consensus mechanisms.

Hedera has made huge strides, and with a board aptly named the Hedera Council that has Boing, Google, IBM, LG, FIS and Worldpay among others, providing oversight and the governance for the platform while also representing a broad range of potential use cases for the network, Hedera seems to have the wider industry support prerequisite to taking technology mainstream.

As Mance points out, it’s about positioning yourself and preparing for the inevitable change that is upon us. He believes everything we see and touch will have a digital token associated with it, and with new applications appearing on a near daily basis, it’s difficult to disagree.

DeFi and the Blockchain will completely revolutionise the way we as consumers understand and interact with our money.

It is the reason why my team and I are going all-in and plan on spending the next 10 years teaching, understanding, investing in and profiting from this exciting new marketplace.

If you’re keen to take advantage of these opportunities and increase your earning power, then take some time to consider joining my DeFi Academy. Each and every day, I’m welcoming enthusiastic and passionate students to the team, all of whom can’t wait for the start of my latest course which begins on Monday, that’s in 3 days time!

If you want to join in and take advantage of the huge technological shift that is taking place, fill out your application post haste, it could be the best decision you’ve made for a very long time.

So make sure you lock in your spot now and be part of ‘The Greatest Dislocation of Wealth in Human History’.

As Mance himself reminds us,

“The world is changing and it’s going to change very quickly.”
