About the speaker:
Jonathan Perkins:
With the help of his music collection on tapes, CDs, vinyl, and Napster, Jonathan was fascinated to realize as a kid that our experience of art is framed by technology. With a background in digital media and software development, Jonathan's career has revolved around this intersection of technology and the arts as a developer, entrepreneur and musician. In 2018, he co-founded Pixura, a company that gives creators and artists the tools to issue limited-edition digital art on the Ethereum blockchain.

John Crain:
When John was introduced to Bitcoin in the wake of 2008's crash the possibility of an economic system with self-governance rang true. Since then he moved from the West Coast to pursue his interest in the blockchain space. After joining BlockApps in Brooklyn as a founding member he is now working on a tool for digital art creators, Pixura, a tool to help creators monetize their content.
