Hashing It Out #3: Fabian Vogelsteller

ABOUT THIS EPISODE

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.

Hashing It Out #30: CyberMiles - Michael Yuan

On this episode, we have the extreme pleasure of interviewing Michael Yuan, Chief Scientist at CyberMiles. CyberMiles is building a blockchain platform targeted for e-commerce with those concerns in mind. Using a fork of Ethereum and the Ethereum toolsets, CyberMiles has an upgraded EVM with support for extended and extensible opcodes and a dPoS consensus system for validators to stake into the network. Their research is pushing the limits of what the existing technology can do, and they have some amazing progress in proving alternative systems for developing blockchain. Michael is a very exceptional scientists in this space, and he and Collin had a great conversation, not just about CyberMiles, but the space in general.

Hashing It Out #29: Universal Logins - Alex van de Sande

Alex va de Sande is a UX designer and developer for the Ethereum foundation who has come up with a new, clean way to provide universal login capability to any decentralized application. Using a combination of standards such as ERC725 identity contracts and his proposed ERC1077 and ERC1078, he has created a way to login across any application using a single login mechanism. We go over his system, his views on the challenges behind adoption that UX can solve, and the future of DApps as they begin implementing standards such as universal logins.

Hashing It Out #28: Panvala - Niran Babalola

So you have a decentralize app you want to use... how do you know its smart contracts are safe? That's where Panvala comes in! Using their system you can certify the security and authenticity of your smart contracts and obtain a mark in proof of this certification. On this episode we talk with its co-founder, Niran Babalola, about their smart contract registry and certification system. We learn of its process, development, and larger implications. We learn what it takes to get from zero to one in a project that requires community participation to improve the certification process.

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

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.
