Hashing It Out is a podcast which dives into the weeds with tech innovators in blockchain infrastructure and decentralized networks to learn more about what they build and the problems they face head on to overcome.
Hashing It Out #94- Marco Rodrigues Web 3.0
Marco from The Slack(You Should Join)talks with John and Corey about the fundamental underline infrastructures of the internet and how Web 3.0 should look like in the future now.
Hashing It Out #73-Logan Brutsche of DAIHard
DAIHard uses Ethereum smart contracts to create burnable deposits as a means to gamify exchange of goods and services. In a burnable deposit, both parties put up collateral and in the event the servicing party delivers, they recieve their deposit plus their compensation. Failure and both parties may lose their deposits. We have Logan Brutsche back on the program to discuss the platform build around this concept, DAIHard, and how it seeks to fill the niche market of fiat currency exchange via crypto.
Hashing It Out #76- Namebase.io Tieshun Roquerre
Handshake is a decentralized, permissionless naming protocol where every peer is validating and in charge of managing the root DNS naming zone with the goal of creating an alternative to existing Certificate Authorities and naming systems. Names on the internet (top level domains, social networking handles, etc.) ultimately rely upon centralized actors with full control over a system which are relied upon to be honest, as they are vulnerable to hacking, censorship, and corruption. Handshake aims to experiment with new ways the internet can be more secure, resilient, and socially useful with a peer-to-peer system validated by the network’s participants.
Hashing It Out #65 – Cypher Core – Jay Jie and Ken Trueba
This episode features Jay and Ken from Cypher Core. Cypher Core offers a staking as a service platform for Proof of Stake protocols. Primarily focused on Cosmos network, we talk with them about their experience implementing their system, incentive models involved with staking services, and the overall Cosmos community.
Hashing It Out #64 – Plasma – Kelvin Fichter
If you know the show, you know we are very keen to see Plasma implemented as a technology. To discuss the progress in the past year, we have the great pleasure of bringing on Kelvin Fichter, former Plasma researcher with OmiseGo and the Plasma Group. We talk about the advancements made, and how the specification is gradually coalescing into a singular vision. We also get into some more heady topics such as the nature of trust in society and the role language in trusting someone.
Hashing It Out #63 – Nano – Colin LeMahieu
Nano is providing a new approach to fee-less pure payments networks. We are privileged to speak with Colin LeMahieu, CEO of Nano to discuss their DAG voting-based consensus protocol, their accounts-blockchain model, and their NanoPoW for memory-hard PoW to replace fees in a network. Interesting stuff, and definitely a great conversation.

Looking forward to more
I appreciate the fact that these guys are explaining some of the complex processes associated with blockchain deployments.
Technical and Accessible
I’ve been listening to the Bitcoin Podcast Network for a few months now and really enjoy it. They provide a number of regular programs that center on different topics in the space and most will find something there that they enjoy.
One thing that was missing (until now) is a more in-depth discussion of the development efforts and technology behind these emerging blockchain initiatives.
This podcast is excellent for any casual listener that wants to garner an appreciation or understanding of the technical details behind some of these projects. It is also excellent for anybody who is keen on developing in the space and might not be aware of the languages or utilities currently being employed to address emergent problems.
This is easily my favorite program now. Well worth a listen!
