    The Ether Review #46 - Curtis Yarvin & Galen Wolfe-Pauly on Urbit

    November 7th, 2016 by Legendface66

    Sometimes the urge to layer in-jokes into a podcast title is impossible to resist. . . and then 24hrs later you change it.

    The effort to understand the significance of type based and functional programming languages led me to the Urbit project. This attempt to re-design the internet is one of a number of technologies that have evolved alongside blockchain and address some of the same problems. The Urbit developer's focus on mechanical perfection is a sensibility worth observing.

    The first ...

    October 21st, 2016 by Legendface66

    Core samples from oil wells can be worth more than gold. BHP Billiton, one of the largest mining companies in the world, is piloting a program to track their custodianship and provenance using IPFS and Ethereum.

    Not only is this an interesting use case, but it is also the first time we have seen a production deployment of both IPFS and Ethereum.

    The Ether Review #41 - Martin Lundfall, Rage Against the Machine

    October 13th, 2016 by Legendface66

    What is the Ethereum Virtual Machine, what design trends and decisions influence its operation and what does that mean for Ethereum the platform?

    Today we dive deep. There is a debate around whether the flexibility of the imperative paradigm of programming language design or the verifiability of the functional paradigm are more appropriate for the Ethereum Virtual Machine. Martin is in the functional camp which he believes can make Ethereum a more robust and powerful platform. The EVM itself ...
