20 Jun Interview: Civic CEO Vinny Lingham
South African Internet entrepreneur Vinny Lingham joins Duncan McLeod on Skype from San Francisco to chat about Civic, the new blockchain-based identity management service that allows users to protect and authorise the use of their identity in real time. Lingham, who is well known to South Africans for his involvement with Dragon's Den and Shark Tank on M-Net, chats about how the idea for Civic came about and why he thinks it's groundbreaking. He also talks about the company's initial coin offering, or ICO, and how it works. In addition, he gives his views on the price of bitcoin (is it going to soar even higher, or is it about to crash?) and the South African economy and technology scene from a global perspective.
