On this episode of BlockChannel, McKie, Dee and Petty sit down with the Founder and CEO of Spankchain, Ameen Soleimani. Spankchain is a platform for monetized webcam streaming; utilizing what are called Ethereum "state channels" to facilitate realtime payments over live-streaming adult video content. Spankchain also plans to debut the first ever "state-channel ICO" which will enable them to more precisely price their token before it reaches market, alleviate congestion on the Ethereum network, and hopefully invite others to adopt similar strategies as the ecosystem works to scale ICO's accordingly. A very insightful episode, on a taboo topic. But hey, that's what makes it fun; also there are a lot of puns this episode, so yeah be ready.
