PitchIt Podcast #57: Chris Aguas of CoreChain Technologies

On episode 57, I talk with Chris Aguas of CoreChain Technologies. CoreChain is the only network built for scale and security on enterprise blockchain to streamline the exchange of B2B payments transaction data and funds.

The B2B payments space still uses paper checks; 60 percent of B2B payments are done via paper checks.
