Hashing It Out #27: Radical Markets - Dr. E. Glen Weyl

ABOUT THIS EPISODE

Blockchain hipsters, we have a treat: Dr. Weyl, co-author of Radical Markets. His book quickly became a popular with us in decentralization. The book proposes new ways to create marketplaces to provide better opportunities for optimal redistribution of resources. This has especially strong implications for those designing decentralized systems and applications. We talk with him about his book, the motivations behind radical markets, and potential futures involving his schemes.

Hashing It Out #19: Gitcoin - Kevin Owocki

We talk with Kevin Owocki, co-founder of Gitcoin. No joke, this episode is compelling. Gitcoin is a decentralized application which incentives open source contributors with bounties for bugs and features. Kevin tells us about the creation of Gitcoin, how their incentive models work, their architecture, and their alternate funding mechanism for open source projects, CodeFund. We then take a trip to Jupiter and dream of the future of decentralization, theorycrafting what that world will look like and what we need to build to get there. Exciting topics!

Hashing It Out #18: Origin Protocol - Stan James

In this episode we talk with Stan James, Lead Engineer at Origin Protocol. They are building a mechanism for completely decentralized market listings and purchasing using Ethereum smart contracts. We go over the design, the tools, and the integration pathways for Origin, the challenges faced in designing this protocol, and the layer 2 solutions which improve the service of messaging buyers and sellers in a listing.

Hashing It Out #17: Modular - Chris Brown & Will Dias

We talk to Modular's Chris Brown and Will Dias about their work building libraries for the Ethereum community. These guys are doing some very amazing work directed at financial institutions. Using their libraries, developers can build applications secure in the vetting process the Modular group implements. We talk about their approach of using Solidity libraries rather than smart contract templates, how dapp developers can and should integrate these libraries into their code, and what security concerns are addressed using their system.

Hashing It Out #16: Fr8 Protocol Team

Fr8 Protocol is a startup which is creating a standard communication layer to facilitate supply chain logistics using blockhcain as the truth mechanism. This early-stage startup has designed their protocol for improved track and trace, trustless exchange, and network resiliency and is partnering to integrate their protocol into IoT devices. We discuss with their team about the challenges in the space and what they hope their protocol will provide to the world, as well as how such a protocol can be managed trustlessly going forward.
