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.
