Some quick clarification, Guy Corem (of Spondoolies Tech) reached out to me regarding the "trusted transparency" initiative.  He thinks there is a misunderstanding and likens it to more of an odometer.  Says that there will be more public info in the coming months.  So feel free to put an asterisk at the 53m mark.

Thanks again for organizing the panel, enjoyed the conversations.  If listeners are interested in some of the companies, services and projects I mentioned, I put together a rough transcription with a few links to them here: http://www.ofnumbers.com/2014/08/30/a-panel-on-smart-contracts-with-industry-developers-and-educators/

I would like to thank IFTF for hosting us that evening.  For those interested, the slides can be viewed here: http://www.slideshare.net/MrCollectrix/future-opportunities-and-economic-challenges-for-cryptoledgers-trends-and-speculative-possibilities-of-frictionless-trustless-asset-management

Also, there was at least one error that I made.  Regarding microtransactions, this was not specifically stated in the original 2008 white paper but was subsequently discussed by adopters as an area for potential opportunities.  Here is one thread that discusses this further: http://bitcoin.stackexchange.com/questions/3689/will-transaction-fees-eventually-make-microtransactions-not-worthwhile

Currently only off-chain solutions like Coinbase support the ability to transact at the satoshi level: http://blog.coinbase.com/post/57483182558/you-can-now-send-micro-transactions-with-zero-fees

With the help of many people much smarter than me, I published a short book on  #smartcontracts   #smartproperty #trustlessassetmanagement #cryptocurrencies & #nextgenerationplatforms I hope future educators can take the manuscript and improve on it.  This is a great community and a very exciting industry.  Cheers!  http://www.ofnumbers.com/the-guide/

My latest #cryptoledger piece is up over at CoinDesk. I would like to thank Ben Davenport, Taariq Lewis, David Johnston and Ryan Orr for their time and insights into the #smartproperty space.  It will be interesting to see what traditional wealth managers think of this new toolset. (Christensen + Schumpeter = Disruptive innovations and creative destruction)  #Mastercoin #Coloredcoin  http://www.coindesk.com/smart-property-colored-coins-mastercoin/
Cryptoledgers, like those utilized in bitcoin and litecoin, are not merely one-dimensional, one-trick ponies relegated to simple fiat exchanges.
