He has watched the Wild West that is influencer marketing until he realized an opportunity to fix this broken system, and give influencers the sway they need to move markets together, and to get paid what they’re deserved for this power they bring to bear.

Robots: friend or foe? This question may sound simpleminded, or it may sound ridiculously sci-fi, but… well, not so fast!
