In “Forkology: A Study of Forks for Newbies,” Andreas introduces newcomers to the emerging computer science speciality of "forkology," or the study of forks, how blockchain ecosystems change over time, and the game theory of competing consensus models. In the previous episode, “Stories We Tell About Money,” he explained that our perception of money is constructed based on many myths. Now he covers the various types of forks and the agents involved in consensus evolution, using relatable analogies from the restaurant business to help us grapple with this crazy new world where the traditional menus and stories will no longer do.



This talk took place on June 6th 2017 at a joint meet-up with Blockchain Professionals, BitcoinSYD and SydEthereum in Sydney, Australia.



This series is called ‘Unscrypted’ for a reason: all of Andreas’ talks are performed without slides or notes. You can find any necessary corrections and clarifications in the podcast description.



Credits: The narration for this episode was done by Stephanie Murphy. Production support from Erica and Jessica. Video editing by Adrian Tano. Sound editing by Dimitris Angelidis of Sampi Media. Logo design by Davi Barker. The music is called “Unbounded” by Orfan.
