Episode #286: Philosophy and the Blockchain with Moresh Kokane

April 2, 2019

Moresh Kokane is the founder of real estate crowdfunding company Estate Baron and co-founder of next generation distributed share registry, Konkrete.

This conversation is very much a tale of two halves.

The first 50 minutes we explore the mindset of the entrepreneur, what it takes to suceed and various schools of philosophy that can help someone not only become a better entrepreneur or business leader, but a better person. We explore the book that changed Moresh’s life, Atlas Shrugged, as well as its philosophy of objectivism. I challenge Moresh on whether or not people are really in control of their choices and we dive in to why a healthy relationship with adversity is one of the key determinants behind anybody’s success.

The next 30 minutes we explore blockchain, the decentralisation of money and Moresh’s startup Konkrete, which - full disclosure - Collective Campus is a JV investor in, but what we explore is an innovative, fully compliant fundraising method that Konkrete is leveraging and something that blockchain-based startups can learn from.

So with that, please enjoy this 90 minute deep dive with Konkrete’s Moresh Kokane.
