Jason Robert takes us down the blockchain rabbithole, introducing us to the many details that make up a new cryptocurrency business, which he calls a "social movement disguised as technology." His new platform to sell tickets with Ethereum is mere weeks old when we record this, and he takes us though some of his challenges innovating in both blockchain and ticketing at the same time.
