Show Notes

Jehan Tremback is the CEO and Co-Founder of Althea, a team building a decentralized internet network that allows routers to pay each other for internet bandwidth, peer-to-peer (P2P). Althea encourages and empowers any individual to become their own internet service provider, and earn money by providing internet service to their neighbors and local businesses. In this interview with STA’s Derek Edward Schloss, Tremback walks through his history in the San Francisco hacker space, the opportunity and benefits of mesh networks, the problem with the top-down internet service provider (ISP) model today, how the Althea system and blockchain will work, why the team incorporated MakerDao’s ‘Dai’ stable token, and why the team decided to use blockchain crowdfunding firm Republic to undergo a compliant security-wrapped token airdrop (Reg CF) to bootstrap new communities on the Althea blockchain.
