Hashing It Out #13: Logan Brutsche – Crypto Primitives Class

Today Corey and Collin talk with Logan Brutsche, the creator of ToastyCoin, about the concept of “cryptoeconomic primitives.” He is setting up an academy to walk people through what those are, and how to start making them in a collaborative manner to push the blockchain community forward in a secure and safe manner. Come listen and learn, then join his academy and learn more.

Hashing It Out #12: Full Casper Chain v2 - Casper + Sharding

A set of notes were just released for a revised version of the Casper protocol which merges its goals with sharding research. It uses a beacon chain to behave as a source of randomness with the RANDAO being central to that chain. This enables a commitee of validators to be selected for validating individual shards rather than the entire chain and sign it using BLS signatures. Corey Petty and Collin Cusce discuss these notes and try to suss out what this means for Ethereum if it were implemented.

Hashing It Out #10: TrueBit - Harley Swick

TrueBit is one of the more impressive decentralized projects, and we're really excited to have had the chance to interview Harley Swick, core developer on the project. We talk to him about TrueBit, how it works, it's significance, how it differentiates itself from other off-chain computation projects. We go over some of the many, many applications of decentralized off-chain computation projects and how they can improve world resource utilization. Amazing and really exciting stuff!
