Why still allow the Huan person go debate? He has no tech credentials no interview nor debate ethics keep jumping in.

Glad you found the episodes successful :) I agree that could make for a good episode. @adam if you want to feel free to go ahead, if it interests you. Otherwise, we'd be happy to revisit the topic with Rusty in late September / October.Posted on August 15, 2015 at 4:05 AM
thanks for all these insightful answers. Super interesting. You seem to know a lot about this topic. We'll definitely try to address some of these points when we talk to Paul.
Feel free to add me on Skype if you want to talk further or email me: fabian.brian.crain or [email protected]
We're recording Sunday morning PDT time so I guess we won't be able to talk before we record.Posted on April 19, 2015 at 7:45 AM
I'm not sure I understand the question. Do you mean how do we deal with the recycling of devices? What does that have to do with IoT? That would seem to be a general problem related to the increasing number of devices.Posted on April 17, 2015 at 3:03 AM
Brian here from Epicenter Bitcoin. We'll be recording an episode with Paul Brody who was in charge of Internet of Things at IBM until recently and launched this project there to use the blockchain to power IoT infrastructure.
It's a super fascinating topic, though we're much less familiar with it than with others. Any IoT enthusiast here with opinions on this? What should we cover? What are your views?

We're joined by Jae Kwon, CEO and Founder of Tendermint, the team which will soon launch the Cosmos Network. Cosmos aims to build the internet of blockchains: A global network of blockchains, connected through hubs that allow trustless token transfer. Jae joined us to discuss the Cosmos vision, the underlying Tendermint consensus algorithm and upcoming fundraiser.Read More

We're pleased to be joined by Professor Silvio Micali, a computer scientist at MIT, who is known for his work in many of the technologies blockchains rely on today. Prof. Micali describes the concept of Algorand, an alternative approach to proof of work which offers high security guarantees while allowing the network to scale with demand. Relying only on a trivial amount of computation to validate transactions, Algorand also reduces the probability of network forks to near-zero. It uses novel mechanisms to select validators for blocks and enabling them to come to consensus on them.Read More

We're joined by Rick Dudley, an opinionated and passionate blockchain developer who is actively involved in multiple projects. He works as a DevOps at Monax, works closely with Vlad Zamfir on implementing Casper in Ethereum, is a leading member of the Coala organization and is Founder and CEO of the startup Vulcanize. Rick gives us insider insights on Ethereum and on how the project may evolve, in particular, once Casper is implemented and when more robust, strongly typed language VMs are made available to the protocol.Read More

After the successful Ethereum crowdfunding campaign, musician and web developer Peter Harris saw a path to creating a fair, decentralized music streaming platform. Out of that Resonate was born. Peter joined us to discuss why the dysfunctional structure of the music industry results in a bad deal for musicians and why a decentralized platform supported by blockchain technology and run as a cooperative represents a better way forward.Read More

Years into the controversy around how to scale Bitcoin, there have been many challengers to Bitcoin core's dominance. After XT, Classic and others have faded, Bitcoin Unlimited has been gaining traction and emerged as plausible new way forward.
Bitcoin Unlimited wants to make the block size a parameter that is set by miners and nodes, but not fixed at a network level. They argue a natural fee market would emerge, allowing Bitcoin to rapidly scale and realizing its promise of electronic cash as well as store of value. The project is also member-driven, with democratic decisions driving its development decisions. Core developer G. Andrew Stone and Bitcoin Unlimited President Andrew Clifford joined us for the episode.Read More

Ari Juels, a Professor at Cornell Tech and former Chief Scientist of RSA, joins us to discuss his work on Authenticated Data Feeds for Smart Contracts. These 'Town Crier' feeds would act as bridges between smart contracts and websites, srapping data over TLS and feeding to to a smart contract. Relying on sophisticated hardware enclave technology, one who uses a Town Crier feed would not need to trust its operator as code execution would be guaranteed signed by the hardware.Read More
