Hashing It Out #60 – Balance Research – Arthur Gervais & Dominik Harz

ABOUT THIS EPISODE

This episode Corey and Collin bring on the academics Arthur Gervais and Dominik Harz from Imperial College London. They discuss a new protocol that attempts to reduce the required financial deposits for various mechanisms in a way that does not reduce security. In other words, it is an attempt to help with over-collateralization, which could save investors a lot of money! As always, we get into the weeds to try and figure out exactly how it works, and where it is best used. Come listen and enjoy!

Hashing It Out #66 - Trueblocks - Thomas Jay Rush

The Ethereum ecosystem is very attractive to creators and data analysts, attracting tops engineers with its novel set of problems. Thomas Jay Rush, CEO of TrueBlocks.io is one such mind. He saw a problem with Ethereum's accounting and built a suite of tools to enable highly-details and lightning fast dives into the data of Ethereum, allowing users to find information about anything their address has touched. This is a far more compelling problem than most realize, and T.J. gives a great look into the design required to make such a service fast and responsive.
