The Tech in Shanghai podcast (@techinshanghai) is a new show which tells the story of what's happening on the ground in the Shanghai/China technology and start-up scene, through the eyes of the people making it all happen. We keep it casual, letting the various founders, CEO's and MD's tell their version of what it's like to to be involved in the scene of one of the most dynamic and fast growing markets in the world. We hope you'll join us as we follow this amazing story and speak to some fantastic and inspiring people along the way!

In this episode I sit down with Žiga Drev, Co-Founder of origintrail.io, the "First purpose-built protocol for supply chains based on Blockchain.”  We discuss the ongoing (at the time) ICO, how their protocol will be used, and the work he and his team have done in the preceding months to prepare for this stage in their development, including graduating from Batch 2 of the bitsxbites.com accelerator program in Shanghai, and being awarded the ‘Walmart Food Safety Innovation Spark Award’ in Beijing We also delve into how OriginTrail has transitioned from a conventional to now a blockchain-focused company, and Žiga explains how his company is using Blockchain to bring more transparency, accountability and trust to the food supply chain. Finally, we discuss what it’s like to be a young entrepreneur in a booming industry, that seems set to radically change how we live, interact and conduct business.  Would love to hear any feedback you may have in the comments below. Thanks!  *NOTE* - I refer to 'OriginTrail' as 'OpenTrail' throughout this interview. This was a massive brainfart on my part, which Žiga seemed too polite to correct me on, and which persisted despite his using the correct term throughout. My apologies to Žiga and the OriginTrail team, as well as to the listeners for any confusion. I'll be sure to correct this in future interviews! -- For more from OriginTrail:  Website: http://www.origintrail.io Twitter: http://www.twitter.com/origin_trail Twitter: https://twitter.com/DrevZiga Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/origintrail/ Reddit: https://www.reddit.com/r/OriginTrail/ Medium: https://medium.com/origintrail Telegram: https://t.me/origintrail For more from Tech in Shanghai: Twitter:  http://www.twitter.com/techinshanghai Instagram: http://www.instagram.com/john_vallis Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/techinshanghai YouTube: https://youtu.be/FTRVpMYdziA
