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 #70-Akash Network-Greg Osuri

Akash is a cloud for serverless computing. Using the incentivization schemes enabled by the Cosmos Network, Akash empowers architects and builders of the internet with the ability to utilize un-utilized computing resources. Conversely, those with excess computing power can open their systems for auction, enabling them to recuperate value from those resources. Corey and I have the pleasure of speaking with CEO Greg Osuri about their engineering effort and how they built this service.
