Hashing It Out #76- Namebase.io Tieshun Roquerre
ABOUT THIS EPISODE
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.

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.
