In this episode of the TechCentral podcast, Duncan McLeod interviews the executives behind SportsPodium, a blockchain-based information ledger start-up for sportspeople and sporting communities.

In the interview, Natalie du Toit — the former Olympic and Paralympic swimmer who serves as chief development officer of SportsPodium — is joined by chief operating officer Jaco Rossouw and chief technology officer Pieter Botha to discuss the venture in detail.

The idea behind SportsPodium is to reward everyday sportspeople — those aged 12 and up and across all levels of proficiency — with crypto-based tokens for tracking their day-to-day sporting and training activities, submitting this information electronically and building a digital storyboard of their sporting lives.

The team wants to build SportsPodium into the world’s largest multi-sport database of sports-related information.

It’s a fascinating venture and a great discussion. Don’t miss the podcast!
