Episode 17: Discussing Plasma and Storage Rent with Karl Floersch and Phil Daian

Plasma is a new type of scaling solution that Karl is helping to develop, and Phil tries to tear it apart. Phil also introduces the topic of storage rent, which is an uncomfortable truth we'll have to face sooner rather than later.

We sit down and try to dig through and define what Plasma is, what the pro's and con's are and what potential use-cases the technology has.

Unfortunately, the second half of the storage rent conversation was lost, but what's there is still valuable enough to share. Hopefully we can get another episode with Phil to dig deeper into the topic.
