    Streamr’s decentralised network launch, with Co-founder Henri Pihkala

    Streamr’s decentralised network launch, with Co-founder Henri Pihkala

    In this podcast TX Head of Technology Jarno Marttila and Streamr Co-founder Henri Pihkala discuss the newest advancements and the future of the Streamr decentralised real-time network project. Streamr is now approaching its Brubeck milestone and opens up for regular network users to host their own network nodes. Ahead of the Brubeck mainnet launch, a testnet was recently opened to run a series of technical tests with around 4000 network nodes signing up almost immediately, thus marking an impressive kickoff for the network.

    Unlike traditional data networks, Streamr is not based on a centralised message broker but on each user or data consumer also acting as a network node and passing the messages to other users. What results is a massively scalable and fast network for data transport. Participation in this decentralised network can be called mining as it is comparable to the role of network nodes in Bitcoin and Ethereum, with some important exceptions. Instead of meaningless operations that burn energy, users share their bandwidth and thus contribute their valuable resources to the network.

    Decentralised networks are "a classic case of a solution looking for a problem", as Mr. Pihkala puts it. They have disruptive potential that will gradually change the way applications are created on the internet, giving rise to what is called the Web3.0. This kind of disruption has already happened in the story of BitTorrent that forced the music and film industries to completely change their business models.

    He also gives some practical advice to those willing to join this revolution. You can simply install the Streamr software on your Raspberry Pi, connect it to the testnet and start earning small crypto payments for hosting your own network node.

    Creating anti-rival tokens for collaboration and sharing in ATARCA

    Creating anti-rival tokens for collaboration and sharing in ATARCA

    This episode focuses on the key concepts of ATARCA (Accounting Technologies for Anti-Rival Coordination and Allocation), a two-year research project that TX has embarked on earlier this year. The aim of ATARCA is to investigate in its two pilot experiments how blockchain technologies can be used to create new types of businesses based on the replicable nature of digital resources.

    Head of Technology Jarno Marttila from TX and Dr. Esko Hakanen who is the Project Manager of ATARCA and a post-doctoral researcher at Aalto University talk about what the concept of anti-rival goods means, and how anti-rivalry could turn out to revolutionalise business especially with immaterial goods such as information within the next 20-30 years.

    They also discuss the more complex question of if and how this concept can be taken even to traditional and asset intensive sectors such as manufacturing where the new roles of collaboration, connectivity, and sustainability require added interaction and agile experimentation across companies, something which can benefit from anti-rival tokenisation.

    How to build a leading DeFi brand – Avalanche, with Jay Kurahashi-Sofue of Ava Labs

    Avalanche is a highly scalable blockchain platform for decentralized applications and enterprise blockchain deployments, and in our view, one of the benchmarks in blockchain marketing. Their channels offer a delightful stream of content serving both enterprises as well as the developer community. Leading these marketing efforts is Jay Kurahashi-Sofue, and it’s our pleasure to have him as our guest on this episode. Jay is the VP of Marketing at Ava Labs, the blockchain organisation building Avalanche. Ava Labs is on a mission to empower people to build an open, simple, and democratic internet of finance.

    Jay is a well-known voice in the blockchain marketing community. Prior to Ava Labs, he was the Head of Marketing at Fluidity and AirSwap and also was a strategist at Ogilvy, where he co-founded its first blockchain marketing group. Jay is also the co-founder of BlockMarketers, a virtual and in-person community for marketing executives in the blockchain industry.

    On this episode Jay recounts his career journey in marketing into blockchain and DeFi. We talk about bridging the communication gap between crypto and the rest of the world, and also the exciting developments happening in Avalanche! If you’re a marketing professional in the blockchain and DeFi space, you don’t want to miss this.

    API3 and the DAO-governed model, with Sasa Milic

    API3 and the DAO-governed model, with Sasa Milic

    In this episode, we dive deeper into the topic of DAOs by talking to Sasa Milic of API3.

    API3 is a DAO-governed technology product, and Sasa is in a prime position to speak about the ideas behind decentralization and how they permeate the community and culture bringing together diverse skillsets.

    When governance is based on proposals and votes, the essential question becomes how to ensure that DAOs are governed efficiently? Furthermore, how can enterprises interact with DAOs when there is no centralised leadership team? In which ways do DAOs maintain alignment and service quality? Hear Sasa’s insights to find out.

    Polkadot and DAOs, with Irina Karagyaur

    Polkadot and DAOs, with Irina Karagyaur

    This episode is all about DAOs – Decentralized Autonomous Organisations!

    Irina Karagyaur joins us to talk about Polkadot, an open-source project founded by the Web3 Foundation to build a network protocol that allows true interoperability between different blockchains. Irina’s passion for IoT and Smart Cities brought her from architecture to working with blockchain and eventually to become one of the Head Ambassadors of Polkadot.

    Polkadot's DAOs is one of the most exciting examples of the space, with Ambassadors contributing to the community by bidding on projects, creating educational and marketing content, NFTs, partaking in events and most importantly, developing things on Polkadot.

    DAOs bring about a completely new organisational model, and of course, such new paradigms also come with challenges of explaining to the world how the decentralized world works.
    Will centralized organisations disappear and become DAOs? Or will centralized and decentralized work together in the future? Tune in also for Irina’s top 3 pieces of advice for founders wishing to create DAOs.
