Hashing It Out #25: Embark Framework - Iuri Matias

Today we have the pleasure of interviewing Iuri Matias of Embark Framework. Embark is a decentralized application framework that abstracts away the implementation details of specific technologies, allowing dapp developers to focus on what really matters, the experience. We talk about the features of Embark, the design decisions of the framework, and how Embark will integrate new technologies into their systems as they develop.

Hashing It Out #24: Loki Network - Simon Harman & Kee Jefferys

Anonymity is dead... or so you thought. Marrying the technologies behind onion routing and Monero, the Loki network enables a private cryptocurrency and messaging service that hides information down to the network layer. This fascinating approach scales its privacy mechanism in the same way that Tor does and incentives those who run Loki service nodes through their Proof of Service mechanism. Tools like this keep your transactions and traffic private from any spying eyes and makes it increasingly difficult to leverage your network data as a means to track your activity.

Hashing It Out #23: Avalanche - Emin Gün Sirer

Revolutionary! On this episode we have the brilliant Dr. Gün Sirer to whet our appetites for Avalanche, a new category of consensus protocol. He distinguishes Avalanche from Paxos/RAFT systems, blockchain, and traditional gossip networks to show how this new algorithm prevents double spends while allowing for high throughput (early tests supporting over 1200 tx/s). We learn about his new coin, Ava, which will test the limits of Avalanche's public consensus on a global scale! The future is exciting!

Hashing It Out #22: Casper+Sharding - Danny Ryan

Danny Ryan from Ethereum comes on to speak with us about the Casper Sharding v2.1 specification. Casper Sharding is a combined effort between the migration to Proof of Stake and Sharding for Ethereum. We go over the motivations behind the new specification, the research efforts underway, the architecture and design, and even how Ethereum can maintain liveness during a major world catastrophic event. There's so much information to cover, and we only scratched the surface. The future of Ethereum looks exciting!
