Helen Disney was writing for The Times when Bitcoin launched. She quickly realised that businesses, policy makers and the public didn't fully understand the revolutionary implications of emerging blockchain technology. Now she runs the startup UnBlocked, making it her business to help leaders understand how blockchain can impact their field of work. In this podcast she discusses with Anne-Marie the implications of blockchain, demystifying the technology and sharing some of the best use examples she's seen - including a surprising connection to race horses.
