Legacy finance is broken. Can decentralized blockchain networks help create a more efficient, fair and open financial system that contributes to improving social good? Tune in to the Chorus One Podcast every Monday to dive deep into protocols and projects working to realize this future.
Lunie: Multi-Network Staking and Governance with Jordan Bibla
Lunie is a multi-network wallet focused on staking networks and on-chain governance. Lunie was one of the first wallets for Cosmos (then Voyager) and has since expanded to support multiple networks from the Cosmos ecosystem (Terra, E-Money) with Polkadot and other networks coming soon.
Band Protocol: Off-Chain Data for the Internet of Blockchains with Soravis Srinawakoon
In this episode, Brendan and Felix are joined by Soravis Srinawakoon, Co-Founder and CEO of Band Protocol, a data governance framework for Web3. Band is soon launching its own Cosmos SDK chain focused on provisioning oracle data for blockchain applications.
Centrifuge & Tinlake: The OS for the Financial Supply Chain with Lucas Vogelsang
Centrifuge is building the operating system for trade finance. In this episode, Brian is joined by Lukas Vogelsang, CEO of Centrifuge, to speak about the technologies Centrifuge is building to enable more efficient, transparent, and privacy-preserving supply chain financing.
34 Flow: A Blockchain by and for Smart Contract Developers with Dieter Shirley
In this episode, Felix is joined by Dieter “dete” Shirley, CTO at Dapper Labs. The team at Dapper Labs, a spin-off from Axiom Zen, are the creators of Cryptokitties and have spent recent years to create their own blockchain optimized for decentralized applications building on their learnings of writing some of the most widely used smart contracts.
Oasis: Privacy-Preserving Smart Contracts with Andrew Miller and Vishwanath Raman
One of the major factors hampering blockchain adoption is that current decentralized applications only function when all associated data is public. Many real world use cases are only possible when participating parties can be assured that their information is kept private. Oasis is a network that is focused on enabling privacy-preserving smart contracts through the use of secure enclaves.
Coda: Sound Money and SNARKs with Emre Tekisalp and Brad Cohn
While most other upcoming smart contract platforms seem to have identified throughput as the major bottleneck for why blockchains haven’t found mass adoption yet, Coda has focused on a different part of the stack that they perceive to be a much more important issue plaguing blockchain, which is how long it takes for new participants to verify the blockchain. Coda is using recursive zk-SNARK technology which enables them to create a constant-sized blockchain.
