Scaling is not the only challenge stopping mainstream adoption of blockchain. Engineering challenges like decentralized authentication and building seamless consumer-crypto experiences are still blocking the way to mainstream.
In this episode, we talk with legendary VC Fred Wilson, Orbs co-founder Uriel Peled, Bancor founder Eyal Herzog and Orbs Chief Architect Oded Noam and co-founders Tal Kol and Daniel Peled, to discuss the challenges and solutions being worked on right now.
In this episode, we talk to Fred Wilson of Union Square Ventures, blockchain entrepreneur and seed investor, Raphael Ouzan, and Orbs General Counsel, Ran Hammer, about regulating crypto - how long it will take, what it will ultimately look like, the ideal scenario and if it is even a good idea to do so.
In this episode, we talk to Orbs' Head of Research, David Yakira, and Steven Goldfeder, a Princeton PhD candidate specializing in cryptography and cryptocurrency, about decentralized consensus. We'll cover what it means, how most blockchain projects implement consensus, how Orbs implements consensus and why, after 10 years, is consensus still so hotly debated.
Do you want real businesses to use your blockchain? Well, you're going to have to guarantee your performance to attract them. In this episode, Orbs Chief Architect, Oded Noam, explains how to guarantee blockchain performance through Service Level Agreements (SLA) and how SLAs can be implemented in a decentralized network, such as Orbs.
In an episode full of technical expertise, we discuss why the glamour stat of transactions per second isn't the only factor in scaling a blockchain. Discussing the topic is Orbs' Chief Architect, Oded Noam; Head of Engineering & Security, Leonid Beder; Head of Research, David Yakira, and Bancor co-founder, Eyal Herzog.
How to hold up your end of discussing blockchain at a party: Nate Nelson talks to Leonid Beder, VP R&D at Orbs, and Steven Goldsmetter, PHD Candidate at Princeton University about Bitcoin, Etherium and the 3rd generation of blockchain technologies.
