Hashing It Out #64 – Plasma – Kelvin Fichter

ABOUT THIS EPISODE

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.

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

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!
