In this episode i'm talking to Kayvan Sadeghi (CEO and Co-Founder) and Ehsan Shariati (CTO and Co-Founder) from Functionland. Functionland is a Web3 startup that has attracted investments of USD 1.1M+ via a heavily oversubscribed early funding round, They are about to launch its first product which is a plug-and-play blockchain device that promises to free users from a range of online subscription services, including photo storage, file sync, secure password backups and more. Both Kayban and Eshan talk about how this offering creates virtually limitless storage opportunities thanks to its “blockchain-attached storage” solution but unlike most Blockchain projects, there is an open-source physical platform element for storage, computing, and interconnecting with other devices.

Functionland was founded in 2020 and is headquartered out of Toronto, Canada.
