THREE QUESTIONS TO OLIVIER LECLERC, TRAINER & LECTURER IN CRYPTO-ECONOMICS AT NEOCONOMIA
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 Olivier Leclerc, trainer & lecturer in crypto-economics at Neoconomia:
- First of all, could you tell us about your background and Neoconomia?
My name is Olivier LECLERC, I’m 34. I am a generalist engineer (INSA school, Rouen, France, graduated in 2008) and used to work as a construction engineer for several years. In 2015, I discovered the bitcoin concept and Blockchain technology on a forum. I became passionate about the subject in 2016–2017 after reading several books concerning crypto-economics. In 2017–2018, I studied crypto-currencies and blockchain technology in the University of Cyprus (UNIC) and got graduated in 2018. In October 2018, I started my own company, Neoconomia, as an independent trainer for companies and individuals. My desire is to democratize crypto-currencies through education. I provide now personal/group training, masterclasses, conferences, but I am also working on different projects in the crypto-space with many partners like Coincapital, my goal is to diversify my activities in this field.
2. Can you tell us more about the impact of blockchain technology on your sector of activity?
The blockchain technology forces us to rethink about the way that many sectors are currently working, we have to imagine how to move from a pyramidal centralized organization to a flat and decentralized organization, which is very difficult to apprehend because we are not used to this. In the educational sector, we already see significant interest coming from university and masters years after years, but also from individuals and companies, just because they have to admit that blockchain technology is here to stay, as bitcoin is not a blowed bubble. Concerning companies, like private banks, wealth managers, accounters, but also tradespeoples, I can see lots of interest coming from them as well, and I am now working on specific programs to train them. I consider that everybody has to learn and understand crypto-economics because it is a worldwide phenomenon which will impact the way every individual is going to live in the next future, from his money expanses to the energy he will consume or the products he will buy…
3. How do you see the evolution of the blockchain market in the coming years?
One way or another, blockchain market will grow and improve, but first, people have to understand this new concept to see how it can improve the way we are living. Lots of companies are now surfing on this new concept but sometimes blockchain is not necessary or doesn’t upgrade a specific process, just make it nicer, the blockchainization is trendy! I am 100% sure some major sectors will be revolutionized by this technology in the coming years, as money transfer is already revolutionized by the crypto-currency, sectors like energy, learning machine, insurance, property, sharing economy or even the voting system…will be forced to evolve with the blockchain technology, to improve them, make them fairer and cheaper to use.
