Hashing It Out #1: Nick Johnson

ABOUT THIS EPISODE

Part of the Bitcoin Podcast Network, we have a new show where we interview Nick Johnson of the Ethereum Foundation. He talks about the Ethereum Name Service (ENS). ENS is bringing human-understandable naming to address resources both on-chain and off-chain. Nick is incorporating a new non-profit organization to support the efforts to build out a decentralized system for creating and managing these names. In addition, we pull from his expertise as go-ethereum engineer to get his take on dapp usability, solidity language quirks, blockchain scaling, and our blockchain-driven future.

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.

Hashing It Out #62 – Bolt Labs – Ayo Akinyele

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!
