In this episode, we do a deep dive into the DFINITY protocol project and their recently released whitepaper. Using a randomness beacon, DFINITY aims to achieve an efficient and fair PoS system with strong safety and liveness guarantees. We speak with Robert Lauko, a Research Associate working on the project, about the ongoing development of this new blockchain, the Blockchain Nervous System and DFINITY’s approach to on-chain governance.
On this week’s episode, Anna and Kobi Gurkan chat with Dan Boneh, Professor of Computer Science at Stanford and Director of the Stanford Center for Blockchain Research.
They discuss Dan’s more recent work in ZK Tech, both in education and in research, and review innovative use cases both Dan and his students have been working on since our last episode. It was great to have Dan back on the show, and we hope some of these ideas inspire listeners to jump in on the research or to build some products using these concepts.
