Erik is joined by returning guest, Simon de la Rouviere (@simondlr), co-founder at Ujo and ConsenSys, and Achill Rudolph (@AchillRudolph), lead link and initiator at Convergent. They start with an introduction of what personal tokens are, how they work, and why they have the potential to empower people around the world. Achill explains how they are thinking about them at Convergent and how they’ve been used so far by creators. Erik asks why blockchain is necessary for an application like this and Achill explains how they’ve been able to replace a long and complicated process with a one-click issuance of a personal token. The three of them discuss the ideas and issues around trading personal tokens, whether derivatives and short-selling should be enabled, and what kinds of regulations should apply.
