Episode #25 - Algorand & Moonstake eXponential Finance

    • Business

For the first time, we welcome two guests to the podcast: Haichao Zhu, Associate Director at the Algorand Foundation, and Alex Hui, Director at Moonstake and Co-Founding Chairman at the APAC Blockchain Association.

With Haichao, we discuss Algorand's Pure Proof-of-Stake (PoS) protocol, the features of Algorand 2.0, namely Algorand Standard Assets (ASA), Atomic Transfers and Algorand Smart Contracts at Layer 1 (ASC1), and the latest development with the so-called Co-Chains. 

The research document mentioned on the podcast can be found at the following link: http://diyhpl.us/wiki/transcripts/stanford-blockchain-conference/2020/no-incentive/

From Alex, we learn how Moonstake goes about building a pan-Asian staking business, why they chose to go down the Proof-of-Stake route rather than building another Proof-of-Work Mining Pool, what the roadmap for the various coins is, as well as what supporting infrastructure we can expect (hint: BinaryStar wallet coming in May!). 

Produced in collaboration with Tokyo FinTech. If you have an interesting story to share with our audience, and would like to appear on the podcast, please contact us via podcast@tokyofintech.com
