Ep 23, Decentralization's Trojan Horse - CODA Protocol with Evan Shapiro, Co-Founder and CEO

Episode Summary

Perhaps the most revolutionary aspect of the blockchain is its capacity for decentralization. Yet, running a node requires a great deal of resources and those with access have the advantage—and once again, we’re stuck with the flaws of capitalism. Is there a way to approach PoS that would allow us to tackle verification with significantly less data, without compromising the security of the cryptocurrency?

Episode Notes

Today, Evan joins us to discuss the immense resources required to verify cryptocurrency and how Coda is tackling the problem. He shares the fundamentals of Coda Protocol and its side project, Snarky, explaining why they use functional programming and how the team is dealing with scalability constraints.
