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.

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!
