Hashing It Out #35: Constantinople Postponement - Trail of Bits & ChainSecurity

ABOUT THIS EPISODE

Back with season 2 of Hashing It Out, and we have a doozy! This Episode features Trail of Bits and ChainSecurity to talk about their amazing last-minute catch of EIP-1283's impact on the Constantinople Ethereum hard fork. We go over how they found it, what recommendations they made, and how the hard fork was postponed to quickly. We also discuss the tooling behind analyzing such a vulnerability, the true impact had it been released, and how the processes around hard fork release candidates could be altered by this detection.

Hashing It Out #3: Fabian Vogelsteller

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.

Hashing It Out #1: Nick Johnson

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.
