3 QUESTIONS TO NICOLAS MERLE, COFOUNDER OF SMARTB AND CHAINOPS
They are our clients, our friends, good contacts or just people we met in the crypto-community. They have new vision, they are running great projects, they are developing new services or they just want to share their story. Havas Blockchain is interviewing key people of the blockchain ecosystem.
Let’s meet today with Nicolas Merle, co-founder of SmartB and ChainOps:
(1) First of all, can you present your activities?
I am the co-founder of SmartB and ChainOps, I’m innovation designer and specialist for new integrations of the digitalization of the society through the blockchain network and understand the implications that this will generate in the concrete citizens and economic actors.
(2) What blockchain can bring to smart cities?
The challenge is how can the city keep the values of its citizens’ data and use that for its own goals, Smart B is building a blockchain-based platform to enable smart cities to take control of the growing amounts of data being generated by their residents and new services. By centralizing and securing data we believe it can create a valuable asset that cities can use to create new economic models and measure progress toward sustainability goals.
(3) A word on your next projects?
We are working on several subjects, including a blockchain specializing in luxury, which will be a new approach to creating important value between actors in this sector
