Daniel Satchkov is an inventor and an applied mathematician who designed a new kind of open-sourced non-corporate social network Bastyon.
On this episode of the Grit Daily Startup, Daniel talks about how he co-authored a number of award-winning scientific studies in financial mathematics. He is now helping an international team of engineers in creating a censorship-resistant social networking platform in the blockchain.
Bastyon is an innovative social network and video-sharing platform. Unlike the mainstream social networks, there is no corporation behind it, it is based on the Bitcoin model. Bastyon is an open source project run by a team of developers and experts, and its goal is to provide a community moderated platform where the freedom of speech is seriously respected.
