    The Ether Review #38 - Pelle Braendgaard, Prehistory

    September 23rd, 2016 by Legendface66
    Blockchain is a recent innovation, cryptocurrency is not. From the mid 80s to the end of the Dot Com Boom in the late 90s, cryptographers and developers tackled many of the problems we are encountering today in this new era of digital currency. Pelle Braendgaard is a veteran search engine webmaster (AltaVista) and participant in the cryptocurrency space of the early nineties. Back then, the Crypto Finance Conference, held in Aguila was the epicenter of the community. A tremendous amount of p... Read More

    The Ether Review #35 - Coinfund & Synereo

    September 12th, 2016 by Legendface66
    Lucius Gregory Meredith, chief technology officer at Synereo is a mathematician and cryptocurrency expert. The Synereo platform began as a decentralized social network but out of a need for smart contracts, high scalability, and concurrent transactions, the project has become something much more than a replacement for facebook. Greg’s work is fascinating and novel, and frankly I don’t do it justice in this interview. Interested listeners should follow up on the provided links. What lead me t... Read More

Topics Covered: Will Ethereum become regulated and merge with Fintech? Is this a bad thing? In the event of a global financial collapse, have we built an infrastru... Read More

    The Ether Review #27 - Blockchain Revolution

    May 13th, 2016 by Legendface66
    Blockchain Revolution, the acclaimed book by Alex and Don Tapscott has been stirring interest in elite tech circles in advance of its launch. Steve Wozniac called it “mindblowing in its expansiveness and profundity.” There are other great quotes on the dust jacket but I think an endorsement like that indicates that Blockchain Revolution is bound to be the bestseller that brings an awareness of blockchain technology to the masses. Today, Alex Tapscott speaks about the work. Content: Alex T... Read More

    In the few days between this episodes interview and the recording of this introduction, the DAO has raised over ten million dollars, bringing its total cash reserves to twenty three million. Such investor enthusiasm is unprecedented in the cryptocurrency world. But is such enthusiasm justified? What is the DAO anyway? Where does Slockit fit into the picture? Will the investor control of the DAO result in overly optimistic capital management? Do these investors realize the highly speculative natu... Read More
