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 #26: NuFHE - Michael Egorov and John "Tux" Pacific

Great Caesar's Ghost! NuCypher has demo'd a practical fully-homomorphic encryption (FHE) scheme that leverages an Ethereum smart contract for a proof mechanism. We get to go over FHE: what it is, how it works, how it commits to the blockchain, scaling issues, and the future of encrypted computation. This will enable new privacy mechanisms on layer 2 solutions which interface with the blockchain cheaply and efficiently. Very big stuff for anyone trying to use blockchain as a resolution mechanism but wants to hide their business rules in the process!

Hashing It Out #25: Embark Framework - Iuri Matias

Today we have the pleasure of interviewing Iuri Matias of Embark Framework. Embark is a decentralized application framework that abstracts away the implementation details of specific technologies, allowing dapp developers to focus on what really matters, the experience. We talk about the features of Embark, the design decisions of the framework, and how Embark will integrate new technologies into their systems as they develop.

Hashing It Out #24: Loki Network - Simon Harman & Kee Jefferys

Anonymity is dead... or so you thought. Marrying the technologies behind onion routing and Monero, the Loki network enables a private cryptocurrency and messaging service that hides information down to the network layer. This fascinating approach scales its privacy mechanism in the same way that Tor does and incentives those who run Loki service nodes through their Proof of Service mechanism. Tools like this keep your transactions and traffic private from any spying eyes and makes it increasingly difficult to leverage your network data as a means to track your activity.

Hashing It Out #23: Avalanche - Emin Gün Sirer

Revolutionary! On this episode we have the brilliant Dr. Gün Sirer to whet our appetites for Avalanche, a new category of consensus protocol. He distinguishes Avalanche from Paxos/RAFT systems, blockchain, and traditional gossip networks to show how this new algorithm prevents double spends while allowing for high throughput (early tests supporting over 1200 tx/s). We learn about his new coin, Ava, which will test the limits of Avalanche's public consensus on a global scale! The future is exciting!
