Hashing It Out #61 – Solana – Anatoly Yakovenko

ABOUT THIS EPISODE

In today’s episode, Corey and Collin talk with Anatoly Yakovenko, the Co-Founder and CEO of Solana. Solana is a blockchain platform attempting to scale transactions without the need of sharding and we want to know how they plan to do it. Join us as we dive into their strategy, their current progress, and where they plan to go. We ask the right questions to get you to the right answers on how this technology works, so come listen and enjoy!

Hashing It Out #15: Ryan John King and Kristoffer Josefsson – FOAM

We discuss with Ryan and Kristoffer from FOAM about their protocol which verifies location in a blockchain. Their innovative protocol uses LoRa, blockchain consensus, and a triangulation mechanism called Proof of Location to verify an agents location at a certain point in time. Using their proposed Crypto Spatial Standard, entities can report their location to the blockchain which agent devices known as "anchors" verify for use in consensus applications. Truly amazing technology with massive implications!

Hashing It Out #14: Thaer Khawaja - Masari

On this compelling broadcast, we interview Thaer Khawaja, creator of Masari protocol. Masari is an early-stage cryptocurrency which derives its ideas from Monero to provide transaction privacy. Masari has the additional goal of scalability and is developing its own method of partitioning a blockchain called the block tree, which hopes to enable dynamic scaling on the chain. We go over the idea of block tree, some of the challenges it hopes to address, the challenges to be faced on the Masari roadmap, and the motivations behind developing a new coin.

Hashing It Out #13: Logan Brutsche – Crypto Primitives Class

Today Corey and Collin talk with Logan Brutsche, the creator of ToastyCoin, about the concept of “cryptoeconomic primitives.” He is setting up an academy to walk people through what those are, and how to start making them in a collaborative manner to push the blockchain community forward in a secure and safe manner. Come listen and learn, then join his academy and learn more.

Hashing It Out #12: Full Casper Chain v2 - Casper + Sharding

A set of notes were just released for a revised version of the Casper protocol which merges its goals with sharding research. It uses a beacon chain to behave as a source of randomness with the RANDAO being central to that chain. This enables a commitee of validators to be selected for validating individual shards rather than the entire chain and sign it using BLS signatures. Corey Petty and Collin Cusce discuss these notes and try to suss out what this means for Ethereum if it were implemented.
