    Demergence Episode 5 - Deterministic vs Optimistic Decentralization

    ***Make sure to download the episode. There is currently a known bug with IC asset canisters causing streaming issues***

    I discuss the idea of deterministic decentralization as implemented by the Internet Computer and Chainlink.
    I contrast that with what I call optimistic decentralization as implemented by Bitcoin, Ethereum, and most other blockchains.

    Demergence Episode 4 - Existential Threats to the Internet Computer

    ***Make sure to download the episode. There is currently a known bug with IC asset canisters causing streaming issues***

    I think these could be existential threats to the Internet Computer's success.
    Agree?
    1. The NNS is unable to decentralize sufficiently
    2. Subnets are unable to decentralize sufficiently
    3. ICP is declared a security by the SEC
    4. Ethereum adopts chain key -> fantastic sharding

Episode 2 Glitch

Podcast restarts at various points of this episode and there is no ability to skip ahead in the episode. Hoping to get a fixed version to listen to the end! Thanks.

Excellent Dev view of ICP

Jordan is a developer independent of the Dfinity foundation. He’s got a tremendous vision for the use case of ICP and calls out the current shortcomings. Fun to listen to!
