Hashing It Out #12: Full Casper Chain v2 - Casper + Sharding
ABOUT THIS EPISODE
A set of notes were just released for a revised version of the Casper protocol which merges its goals with sharding research. It uses a beacon chain to behave as a source of randomness with the RANDAO being central to that chain. This enables a commitee of validators to be selected for validating individual shards rather than the entire chain and sign it using BLS signatures. Corey Petty and Collin Cusce discuss these notes and try to suss out what this means for Ethereum if it were implemented.

Fabian Vogelsteller, creator of the Mist wallet, Web3.js, the history of the ERC20 Token standard, and his ERC725 Identity proposal. He speaks to us about his new industry effort, Lukso (https://www.lukso.io/), which marries blockchain to luxury goods supply chain solutions. He speaks to us about adoption, data governance, industry network effects, and how to bring enterprises to blockchain. We get into his thoughts on standardization to build open communication protocols for building bridges between collaborators, regulators, and end consumers to ensure data integrity. We speak to him about the impact of the ERC20 standard proposal and how it has fostered a $6 billion ecosystem.

Orie Steele, CTO of Transmute Industries. Orie is the creator of the Transmute Platform, a rapid application development framework for centralized, decentralized, and hybrid Ethereum applications and services. We discuss language features of Solidity, scalability paradigms such as Truebit, building blockchain architectures, and off-chain scalability. We pull from his cyber security training to talk about security and best practices in smart contract development.

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.
