Hashing It Out #62 – Bolt Labs – Ayo Akinyele

ABOUT THIS EPISODE

This episode, Corey interviews Ayo Akinyele, a former security researcher turned CEO of Bolt Labs. Bolt Labs is a privacy solution for the Lightning Network which allows for an asymmetry of knowledge in the channel. While this is quite useful and interesting, we instead turn our focus on things such as attribute-based encryption, a security researcher’s view of blockchain systems, and much more. Join us for an awesome conversation of where we are as a community, and where we’re going!

Hashing It Out #73-Logan Brutsche of DAIHard

DAIHard uses Ethereum smart contracts to create burnable deposits as a means to gamify exchange of goods and services. In a burnable deposit, both parties put up collateral and in the event the servicing party delivers, they recieve their deposit plus their compensation. Failure and both parties may lose their deposits. We have Logan Brutsche back on the program to discuss the platform build around this concept, DAIHard, and how it seeks to fill the niche market of fiat currency exchange via crypto.

Hashing It Out #76- Namebase.io Tieshun Roquerre

Handshake is a decentralized, permissionless naming protocol where every peer is validating and in charge of managing the root DNS naming zone with the goal of creating an alternative to existing Certificate Authorities and naming systems. Names on the internet (top level domains, social networking handles, etc.) ultimately rely upon centralized actors with full control over a system which are relied upon to be honest, as they are vulnerable to hacking, censorship, and corruption. Handshake aims to experiment with new ways the internet can be more secure, resilient, and socially useful with a peer-to-peer system validated by the network’s participants.

Hashing It Out #64 – Plasma – Kelvin Fichter

If you know the show, you know we are very keen to see Plasma implemented as a technology. To discuss the progress in the past year, we have the great pleasure of bringing on Kelvin Fichter, former Plasma researcher with OmiseGo and the Plasma Group. We talk about the advancements made, and how the specification is gradually coalescing into a singular vision. We also get into some more heady topics such as the nature of trust in society and the role language in trusting someone.
