Episode #4 of “Can I get that software in blue?”, a podcast by and for people engaged in technology sales. If you are in the technology presales, solution architecture, sales, support or professional services career paths then this show is for you!
Your hosts Steve Mayzak and Chad Tindel are joined by Kunal Anand, founder of Prevoty and now CTO at Imperva. In addition to being a programming whiz and computer security guru he’s also a stone-cold expert on blockchain and crypto currencies having been deep in that world since the early days. We breakdown the latest Coinbase S1 to talk about their business model, how much money they’re making, how cryptocurrencies work and the differences between Bitcoin and Ethereum, and where he thinks crypto will go in the future.
We also cover a range of topics with Kunal like how he thinks about the Solution Architect role as a founder and CTO and how SA comp could be better.
