Hashing It Out #37 - Base Zero - Matt Zimmerman and Ken Sedgwick

ABOUT THIS EPISODE

Managing crypto keys is difficult enough for private holders, but when managing large portfolios of cryptocurrency assets on an institutional level, the risk surface increases tremendously. Base Zero has devised a suite of tools to manage multisignature signing over an air-gapped signing device and a sharded backup system to ensure security for large organizations. This unique approach enables these institutions to mitigate risk associated with large fund transfers without any one single person being able to compromise the system and with highly secured disaster recovery.

Hashing It Out #73-Logan Brutsche of DAIHard

DAIHard uses Ethereum smart contracts to create burnable deposits as a means to gamify exchange of goods and services. In a burnable deposit, both parties put up collateral and in the event the servicing party delivers, they recieve their deposit plus their compensation. Failure and both parties may lose their deposits. We have Logan Brutsche back on the program to discuss the platform build around this concept, DAIHard, and how it seeks to fill the niche market of fiat currency exchange via crypto.

Hashing It Out #76- Namebase.io Tieshun Roquerre

Handshake is a decentralized, permissionless naming protocol where every peer is validating and in charge of managing the root DNS naming zone with the goal of creating an alternative to existing Certificate Authorities and naming systems. Names on the internet (top level domains, social networking handles, etc.) ultimately rely upon centralized actors with full control over a system which are relied upon to be honest, as they are vulnerable to hacking, censorship, and corruption. Handshake aims to experiment with new ways the internet can be more secure, resilient, and socially useful with a peer-to-peer system validated by the network’s participants.
