The Crypto Show CEO Jeff Klee Joins Us on Our First Episode On Bloomberg Business Radio

This is our first episode of on the Bloomberg Business Radio Network . We now air in Miami, Houston, Denver and San Francisco as well as Phoenix on the Independent Talk 1100 on terrestrial radio.We’re very excited to make a run at reaching out to the general public to talk about crypto currency.In the second half of this episode we talk with Jeff Klee CEO of about how and why his company started accepting crypto currency.

DD Episode #4 – Government & Regulation

I don’t think crypto is the end all be all, but there is no one technology that is. However, if we can provide capital to people who for generations have been unable to have access to it, that’s a major win for everybody.

‘”John Collins

Distributed Dialogues is a collaborative show between the Let’s Talk Bitcoin Network and Distributed magazine. In each episode we’ll introduce you to people who are using blockchain technology to change the way we interact with the world around us.

What are the risks and rewards of government involvement in the crypto space? For enterprises, there are little to no regulatory hurdles. They essentially use blockchain technology as a new type of data system. On the other hand, the government’s intended role has been to prevent nefarious activity, scams and any kind of pandemic economic crises. The ongoing point of contention, here, is assessing what level of involvement the state and its laws should have in open source projects. And if there is needed governmental input, would this type of involvement prevent decentralization?

In this episode we will hear from two current and former government employees who act as significant points of contact between the cryptocurrency community and their respective governments, the United States and Taiwan. In between, we talk with Konstantin Richter in a sponsored interview, about his company BlockDaemon, which helps new companies build decentralized infrastructures by offering nodes-as-a-service.**

WBD030 An Interview with Vortex

‘œWe’re going towards this central, totalitarian, surveillance, police state with the central banking system we have.’

Company: Crypto Cast Network and Programming With Bitcoin

Role: CEO

The Bitcoin rabbit hole is deep, and there are many areas to research and understand. As I try and increase my knowledge, I have found myself learning about economics, politics, philosophy, history to name a few.

When talking to Bitcoiners, I have found that they all have a solid understand and view of the economic reason for Bitcoin and therefore why it is so important to them, whatever their discipline.

In this episode, I talk with Vortex, founder of the Crypto Cast Network and Programming With Bitcoin. We talk about how he is teaching C# developers to integrate Bitcoin within their applications, ICE/NYSE and Bakkt, and fractional reserve Bitcoin.

#248 Uri Klarman: bloXroute – Layer-0 Scaling with Akamai for Blockchains

Until now, proposals to improve blockchain scalability have addressed the problem in two ways. One seeks to increase efficiency by optimizing the blockchain or improving the consensus algorithm. The other comes in the forms of layer-2 solutions such as payment channels or side chains.

However, none have addressed the core bottleneck to scalability: TCP/IP network limitations. Improving the speed at which blocks propagate through the network is the layer-0 problem few people consider when thinking about scaling.

Fundamentally, network bottlenecks are what prevent blockchains from increasing their transaction throughput. Raising the block size or reducing the time between blocks has devastating effects on usability as the probability of a fork increases. At a certain point, the blockchain simply breaks as forks occur faster than blocks can propagate to all validators.

Remarkably, the web figured out how to scale decades ago with the invention of Content Distributions Networks, or CDN. This is what enables platforms like YouTube to steam thousands of hours of video to hundreds of thousands of people every second. However, traditional centralized scaling solutions lack the privacy and censorship resistance necessary to serve the decentralized web.

We’re joined by Uri Klarman, CEO of bloXroute. Founded by a team of researchers and systems designers from Northwestern and Cornel University, including Emin Gƒn Sirer, bloXroute allows practically every blockchain network to ‘œscale today.’

As a scalability infrastructure, their Blockchain Distribution Network, or BDN, sits underneath blockchain networks. Anyone operating a miner can use the BDN without any changes to their consensus algorithm or protocol. By simply pointing their software to a bloXroute node, miners immediately benefit from propagations speeds orders of magnitude higher than the time which is currently required for blocks to be seen by all validators. This global network of servers is optimized to receive and stream massive amounts of transaction data to vast networks of nodes and miners.

While bloXroute relies on some level of centralization, it is probably neutral and cannot discriminate based on the contents, provenance or destination of a block. It also includes clever redundancy mechanisms which ensure availability in the event of an attack on the network.

Topics discussed in this episode:

  • Uri’s journey as an academic working in the field of networking
  • Defining the blockchain scalability problem as a networking problem
  • Past work and attempts to scale blockchains
  • The vision behind bloXroute and the problem it aims to solve
  • The Blockchain Distribution Network (BDN) and its technical architecture
  • How the BDN optimizes blocks and achieves 1,000x faster propagation times
  • How bloXroute archives provable neutrality and ensures network resiliency
  • The BLXR token and incentive mechanisms
  • The project’s goals, milestones, and product roadmap
